+ Ability to chew in children is difficult and painful when chewing.

+ Jawbone and gums do not develop.

Primary teeth are only extracted when: permanent teeth have grown but the primary teeth have not fallen out, permanent teeth deviate from primary teeth, primary teeth show signs of shattering as they are going to fall out.
