Deciduous teeth, often referred to as primary teeth, baby teeth, temporary teeth, or milk teeth, constitute the initial set of teeth in the developmental process of humans and certain other diphyodont mammals. These teeth begin to form during the embryonic stage of development and typically emerge or "erupt" into the mouth during infancy. Deciduous teeth serve as placeholders for the eventual permanent teeth that will replace them. However, in the absence of permanent replacements, they can continue to function effectively for several years.
It's important to recognize that deciduous teeth play a crucial role in a child's oral health and development. They aid in proper chewing, speech development, and the alignment of the jaw and permanent teeth. While they are eventually shed, caring for these early teeth is essential to ensure a healthy transition to a full set of permanent teeth.
