Early Orthodontic Intervention in Important for A Life-time Healthy Smile

At Coral Gables’ leading orthodontist, Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, we believe that a healthy smile is a gift every child deserves. If thumb sucking was an issue during their toddler years, their permanent teeth have been delayed in coming in, or their teeth appear crooked or crowded, it’s important to have your child evaluated by an orthodontist at an early age. Ideally, this evaluation should take place by age seven. At this early age, the evaluation may yield one of three plans – no treatment is necessary; treatment will be needed in the future; or an initial treatment is needed now.
