Find Out Great Preventative Care Tips for Your Child's Oral Health


Primary teeth commonly referred to as baby teeth, play an important role in dental development. A child that does not have primary teeth will not be able to chew properly and will have difficulty speaking. These teeth are also important to the jaws and are used to guide the permanent teeth into place. Your child should expect their permanent teeth to start developing around the age of 6. If you are noticing a problem with your child’s development of primary or permanent teeth, the doctors and staff of the Pediatric Group of Hattiesburg & Laurel are here to help.
