If : If a baby or childâ€™s tooth or teeth are rotted; do not recommend that it be handled by removing it yourself or just waiting for it to fall out. Each place where there is a baby tooth, an adult tooth will grow in as the child gets older. It the baby tooth comes out too early, surrounding teeth may start to move into that spot. By, the time that the adult tooth comes in there may not be enough room for it, so that the tooth grows in crooked. If the child has rotten teeth, this can negatively impact self esteem. The baby teeth need to be in place so that the child can chew properly and for the development of his or her speech.
