Finding dentists that you can trust and are available to listen to your needs is important to maintaining your oral health.

Do I have to fix a decayed baby tooth since it will be replaced?

Yes. The primary teeth are very important for maintaining the space necessary for the adult teeth. If a baby tooth is lost too early, the adult tooth that will come in later, may not have enough room to come in. Also, an abscess associated with a decayed baby tooth could damage the developing adult tooth under it, resulting in weakened enamel, staining or spots.
