It would be more for the appearance of the teeth. Infection is not likely depending on how much tooth is broken. Chances are if there is pain it has affected the nerve root and needs attention.

Do cavities in baby teeth need to be filled?

It depends on a number of factors. If the baby tooth is infected, it needs to be treated. If the baby tooth is not expected to be lost for several months or years, it needs to be treated. On the other hand, if the baby tooth is close to being exfoliated (naturally lost), then a filling may not be necessary. You need to discuss your options with a qualified dentist. Failure to properly treat baby teeth can lead to severe and expensive problems in the future.
