Invisalign Teen Boosts Self-Esteem

Invisalign Teen – May is National Teen Self-Esteem Month and a great way to inspire confidence in teens. Self-esteem is essential for not only how we see ourselves, but also how we perceive our competences and skills. People with high self-esteem are usually happier and more confident, while, on the contrary, low self-esteem can result in feelings of depression and can lead to isolation and eating problems and seriously affect an individual’s mental health.

Self-confidence is an especially problematic area during teenage. Teens are particularly sensitive about their own sense of self-image and how others perceive them. Almost half of the high school girls admit that they’re not satisfied and the way they look and are trying to lose weight. Over 70% would avoid normal daily activities and even skip school if they’re not feeling “pretty”.

Teenage self-esteem is an especially delicate area of the personality and such, requires special attention. National Teen Self-Esteem Month is promoted by a number of organizations, amongst which is Invisalign Teen. Teen self-confidence is mainly built around their looks and their perceptions of what’s attractive. Given the choice between healthy and attractive, most teens would most certainly choose the latter but with Invisalign Teen, it’s no longer necessary to make this choice. To support and promote the teen’s choice and confidence, Invisalign developed an innovative product that allows teenagers to enjoy themselves and look their best, without sacrificing health or comfort.

National Facial Protection Month: Free Custom-Fit Mouth Guard

Custom-Fit Mouth Guard – April is National Facial Protection Month and we’re ready to celebrate the month by reminding you to save your face and teeth. Spring is the time we all love to get suited up for outdoor activities but we cannot forget to protect our head and face. By protecting yourself with a helmet and mouth guard you are avoiding head, mouth and facial injuries due to sports-related accidents. Whether at a practice, at a game, or simply enjoying some fun in the sun, it’s important to play it safe.

Protective gear can save your teeth, face and even your life!

  • Wear a mouth guard when playing contact sports. Mouth guards can help prevent injury to a person’s teeth, mouth and jaw, and they are significantly less expensive than the cost to repair an injury, which can reach the tens of thousands of dollars over a lifetime.  Follow the good example of MLB All-Star pitcher Patrick Corbin, who wears a mouth guard every time he takes to the mound.
  • Wear a helmet. Helmets absorb the energy of an impact and help prevent damage to the head.
  • Wear protective eyewear. Eyes are extremely vulnerable to damage, especially when playing sports.
  • Wear a face shield to avoid scratched or bruised skin. Hockey pucks, basketballs, and racquetballs can cause severe facial damage at any age. Custom-Fit Mouth Guard!

Let’s talk about the right mouth guard for you whether you are undergoing orthodontic treatment or not. Get yours this month for free! For questions, please contact the office at 954.217.3737  for more information.

April is the perfect time to get into the mouth guard habit.  Wear one at every practice and every game.

Going Incognito in Miami Shores

As an executive who meets with clients on a regular basis, have you felt self-conscious about your crooked or misaligned teeth and wished you could do something about it?  What holds you back – the thought of metal braces like teenagers, a prolonged process, or maybe the cost?  The solution may be simpler than you think!  An exciting and innovative approach in orthodontics, Incognito Lingual braces, may be your answer!

Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, a “Center for Excellence” and Incognito braces provider in Miami Shores Shores, offers residents a treatment option which can be almost undetectable!

Miami Shores’ premier orthodontist, Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, offers Incognito lingual braces to patients ranging in age from teens to senior citizens.

What are Incognito Lingual braces? The word lingual refers to the tooth surface next to your tongue, and that’s where Incognito Braces are placed – totally hidden! Incognito braces are the only 100% customized, invisible fixed orthodontic appliance system on the market today. Each Incognito bracket is custom manufactured for each individual patient!  Incognito braces are designed to help orthodontists service the growing patient demand for invisible, comfortable and convenient care.

Patients that generally benefit from lingual braces have crowded teeth, under bites and overbites, cross bites, gaps between teeth or rotated teeth.

Key Biscayne Celebrates Children’s Dental Health Month

Children’s Dental Health – Dentists and Orthodontists across the nation, including Key Biscayne’s Premier Orthodontist, celebrate National Children’s Dental Health Month each February!  The focus this time of the year is to raise awareness about the importance of oral health – from brushing and flossing to the proper alignment of the teeth and bite. You can help keep your child’s teeth healthy by using the 2-2-2 rule: visit your dentist two times a year, and brush and floss TWO times a day for TWO whole minutes!

But a beautiful smile and healthy teeth doesn’t stop there!  The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that the initial orthodontic evaluation should occur at the first sign of orthodontic problems or no later than age 7. 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.

While a good number of young orthodontic patients are treated in their pre-tween and teen years, it is often necessary to begin treating a younger patient.  By the age of 7, the first adult molars erupt, forming the back bite. Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, Key Biscayne’s Foremost Orthodontist, will look for the presence of erupting incisors which can indicate possible concerns such as crowding, crossbites, and other alignment problems. A consultation with Key Biscayne’s 5-Star Rated Orthodontist, Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, affords you the opportunity to plan any needed orthodontic treatments.

Key Biscayne’s prominent children’s orthodontist, Dr. Yazji recommends a two-phase approach to a child’s orthodontic care.  Phase One focuses on your child’s jaw development hence the need for children to get evaluated by the age of seven.  The goal of treatment during Phase One is to help create the conditions that allow your child’s jaw to develop in a way that will accommodate all of the permanent teeth and improve their dental bite. Successful first phase treatments will have created room for permanent teeth to find an eruption path.

Children’s Dental Health

Children Dental Health

Once your child’s permanent teeth have erupted, that’s when the second phase of childhood orthodontic care begins.  Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics’ “trusted orthodontic care” will establish a diagnosis and treatment plan for each individual patient.  Most children within Phase two receive both upper and lower braces over a course of approximately two years. Dr. Yazji utilizes state-of-the-art innovative orthodontic technologies including Invisalign and Invisalign Teen (clear braces) and Incognito (hidden braces), in addition to the traditional metal braces that most parents knew as a child.

You can trust your child’s orthodontic care to Key Biscayne’s favorite orthodontist, Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics!  Call this month to arrange a consultation as together we celebrate healthy children smiles and Mouth-Healthy Kids. Call today at (786) 220-7802 or visit our website.

Obtén un tratamiento de ortodoncia que se ajuste a tus horarios – Tal vez quieras ponerte aparatos de ortodoncia para enderezar tus dientes, pero tienes miedo de que los frenillos de metal te resulten demasiado incómodos. Tal vez encajar las visitas regulares al consultorio del ortodoncista en tu ocupada agenda te impide corregir tu sonrisa. Si cualquiera de estas inquietudes te imposibilita recibir el tratamiento de ortodoncia que tanto deseas, la Dra. Maria Yazji tiene la solución para ti: el tratamiento Invisalign combinado con el servicio de ortodoncia remota, a través de la aplicación Dental Monitoring.

Los alineadores transparentes Invisalign enderezan tus dientes, cierran los espacios en tu sonrisa y corrigen tu mordida como lo hacen los brackets tradicionales de metal, pero sin la apariencia de estos. Los pacientes Invisalign reciben varios conjuntos de alineadores para su tratamiento: a medida que el proceso avanza, cada par de alineadores se va cambiando. Es decir, tú debes usar cada set de dos alineadores el tiempo que tu ortodoncista lo indique y luego pasas al siguiente par, y así sucesivamente. Los alineadores transparentes son una alternativa ideal para obtener tu mejor sonrisa sin tener alambres en tus dientes. Aunque a menudo, los frenillos se usan en los años de preadolescencia y adolescencia, muchos adultos también los usan, ya sea por primera vez o para corregir los dientes que se han desplazado desde la primera vez que los usaron. El tratamiento Invisalign de los consultorios de la Dra. Maria Yazji es conocido por los pacientes adolescentes y adultos, ya que los alineadores transparentes son cómodos, fáciles de usar y se pueden quitar para comer, cepillarse los dientes y usar el hilo dental.

La aplicación Dental Monitoring (DM), es el último avance para estar al día con tus citas. Dicha aplicación le permite a la Dra. Maria Yazji, controlar el progreso del tratamiento de ortodoncia de sus pacientes Invisalign, de una manera que resulte conveniente para cada uno de ellos. Para utilizar la aplicación Dental Monitoring con tu tratamiento Invisalign, primero debes descargarla de la tienda App Store o de Google Play, según tengas plataforma iOS o Android, desde tu teléfono celular. Luego, en lugar de ir al consultorio a la hora de tu chequeo regular, simplemente tomas una imagen escaneada de tus dientes usando esta aplicación, y tu ortodoncista la recibirá. Después de revisar la imagen, tu ortodoncista de los consultorios de la Dra. Maria Yazji determinará si estás listo para pasar al siguiente par de alineadores. A través de la aplicación DM, también se envía a cada paciente las instrucciones para el cuidado dental.

Olvídate de conducir con el tráfico para llegar a tu cita a tiempo. Olvídate de sentarte en las salas de espera. Olvídate de tener que salir temprano del trabajo para llegar a tiempo a tu chequeo de ortodoncia. El tratamiento Invisalign ya es práctico y fácil, y la aplicación DM hace que las citas para chequear el progreso del tratamiento sea aún más conveniente. Obtén un tratamiento de ortodoncia que se ajuste a tus horarios!

No permitas que tu ocupada agenda te impida obtener la sonrisa alineada y saludable que siempre has deseado. Para comenzar con el tratamiento Invisalign y utilizar la aplicación DM, contáctanos y permítenos ayudarte a programar una consulta en uno de nuestros tres consultorios del Sur de la Florida. Con el tratamiento Invisalign y la aplicación Dental Monitoring de la Dra. Maria Yazji, el tratamiento de ortodoncia deja de significar tener una boca llena de soportes y alambres metálicos, y los chequeos regulares dejan de ser una molestia para los pacientes.
