Back to School

August Smiles are here! Little Champions Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics is your welcoming and compassionate Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontic team serving South Miami, Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, Brickell, Pinecrest and surrounding areas.

Back to School Check-Up

School will be back in session before you know it. Whether your child will be in the classroom or learning from home, a healthy smile is still a back-to-school essential. August is always a good time of year to schedule one of your child’s regular visits. Even if your child brushes twice a day, it’s not possible to get rid of all the bacteria that can lead to cavities. That’s why a professional cleaning goes a long way. It removes more of the cavity-causing bacteria and helps to keep gum tissue healthy.

What is laser therapy used for in pediatric dentistry?

Good question! Laser therapy in pediatric dentistry is simply a new and better way to treat common pediatric dental conditions. It is as a leading treatment tool in pediatric care, offering minimally invasive treatment options for various dental issues. This advanced technology has been designed to be kid-friendly, making it a great selection for little ones (or parents) who may be apprehensive about dental treatments. Lasers treat a variety of different pediatric dental conditions including:

  • Cavity fillings

  • Hypersensitivity

  • Removing soft tissue folds

  • TMJ treatment

  • Tooth decay

  • Treating “gummy” smile (excessive gingival display)

  • Treating tongue / lip attachment (frenectomy)

Worried your little one is teething?

Teething occurs in 5 stages, usually lasts a little over 2 years, and can be a very difficult time for both babies and their parents to go through Just when you thought you could start sleeping again, here come those little teeth! Most parents can tell when their baby is teething. Your baby may show signs of discomfort in the area where the tooth is coming in, the gums around the tooth may be swollen and tender, and your baby may drool a lot more than usual. If your child's gums are swollen and tender, gently rub or massage the gums with your finger, or give your child a teething ring made of firm rubber to chew. Make sure the teething ring is not frozen. If the object is too hard, it can hurt your child's gums. If your little one is struggling with teething symptoms, give us a call to ask about best at-home care remedies for your specific situation.

Our Little Champions Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics team is a family. We care about each other just as much as we care about our patients. Our goal for your child's visit is comfort, positivity, and happiness! We are also passionate about providing individualized care for all the children that visit our clinic. We aim to introduce, reinforce and collaborate with parents on oral hygiene and food habits that lead to successful teeth developments for all our Little Champions!
