And shouldn't be neglected
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- Though baby teeth are only temporary, they're still important and need proper care.

- Provide space for permanent teeth to eventually grow.
- Prevent permanent teeth from emerging too early, which could lead to misalignment and crowding.
