The term "baby tooth" refers to the first set of teeth that develop in the mouths of young children. It is a term that is commonly used within the dental industry, particularly when referring to the process of teething. Antonyms or opposite words for "baby tooth" are often used in reference to adult teeth, permanent teeth or secondary teeth, which replace the decaying baby teeth. As babies grow, their teeth fall out naturally when the adult teeth beneath start to push through into their places. Permanent teeth are larger, sharper and stronger than baby teeth, offering better support for chewing, biting and speaking efficiently. Therefore, they are considered more significant than the baby teeth.
