Caring for young children’s teeth is an important part of keeping their little bodies healthy and it’s never too early to get started. Strong baby or first teeth set the stage for strong, healthy permanent teeth and help kids learn, play and grow.
A child’s first visit to the dentist sets the stage for lifelong oral health. Our goal at Chace Lake Family Dentistry is to make happy and healthy smiles a reality for our young patients. We do this in a fun and relaxed environment that puts you and your child at ease. We hope our tools, tips and fun links to videos and games help you, and your child, care for their teeth together.
Our No Cavity Kids Club is to create excitement and encouragement for kids to brush and floss their teeth so that they have no cavities at their dental appointment. When a child has no cavities at their appointment, they will receive a No Cavities Certificate of Achievement to take home with them. If you are agreeable, we will ask you to sign a Release and we will take their photograph with their Certificate to use in our marketing and post it to our social media pages to share their great news. We also encourage you to take photographs to post and tag Chace Lake Family Dentistry.
Each kid with no cavities will receive a reward of appreciation from Chace Lake Family Dentistry for their hard work.
It’s very important to maintain the health of the primary (baby) teeth. Primary teeth affect the development of speech and add to an attractive appearance. While the front 4 teeth last until age 6-7, the back teeth (cuspids and molars) aren’t replaced until age 10-13. Neglected cavities can, and frequently do, lead to problems which affect the development of permanent teeth. Primary teeth are important for proper chewing and eating, providing space for permanent teeth and guiding them into the correct position, and permitting normal development of the jaw bones and muscles.
