Your child’s primary or baby teeth help them to eat and speak until their permanent or adult teeth come in. But they also help make sure that those teeth erupt properly, and if your child loses a primary tooth too early, call Stone Ridge Pediatric Dentistry at 703-691-5111 for an appointment with our pediatric dentist. Dr. Patricia A. Wood can provide a space maintainer in Stone Ridge, Virginia, to make sure that your child’s smile develops as it should.
