If you have been recently diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea and bruxism (teeth grinding or clenching) in Oakland Park, Florida, you are probably worried. You might think that the CPAP machine that many doctors prescribe for the treatment is going to be a big adjustment for you, and you might be right.
CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machines stop obstructive sleep apnea by keeping the airway open with air forced through a tube and into a mask that you wear while you sleep. They can be bulky and uncomfortable, and many people have problems wearing them at night. They are lifesaving machines, as they stop sleep apnea and make sure that you do not stop breathing while you sleep, but they do nothing to fix the bruxism that you may be experiencing.
Fortunately, there is another treatment, and it is approved by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine as a treatment for obstructive sleep apnea. They have officially declared the use of this dental appliance is a suitable first-line treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) based on comprehensive, long-term studies showing that it works.
It is called OAT treatment for sleep apnea and bruxism, and that stands for Oral Appliance Therapy. It is an appliance that fits in your mouth, customized to you, so that it is very comfortable. It not only keeps your airway open so that you don’t stop breathing, but it also stops you from grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw as well. Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics are experts in OAT treatment for sleep apnea and bruxism in Oakland Park, and to make your appliance, they would first take impressions of your teeth. Your appliance is personalized for your mouth, unlike boil and wear appliances you can buy over the counter. They don’t distort, and they are very comfortable to wear, making patient compliance with OAT treatment for sleep apnea and bruxism in Oakland Park better than CPAP machines and their bulky masks and noisy oxygen.

This is an article to bring attention to early orthodontic treatment, addressing problems with your child’s teeth. By the age of seven, if you notice problems in your child’s mouth, it’s time to make an appointment with Dr. Maria Yazji and see what can be done to make the corrections necessary for a beautiful smile.
This first appointment will include x-rays, a complete orthodontic exam for alignment correction with braces for children and teens, a diagnosis for a treatment plan, and a price quote for the treatment. The type of braces would be discussed with many options now available to resolve dental problems. Focusing on children under 12 years of age, a FREE, customized mouth guard would be included with any plan. Dr. Yazji believes that if the mouth guard fits properly, a child would be more inclined to wear it. It is an important appliance to be used along with her treatment which may include braces.
The most convenient office to make your appointment would be to use Dr. Yazji’s Weston office located at 2751 Executive Park Drive #101, Weston, FL 33331. The best way to get there is from 818 West to 75 North. If you are not familiar with the area, you may ask for directions when you call to set up your appointment.
There are many appliances that can be used at a young age to modify the growing jaw, correct early orthodontic problems, or improve facial aesthetics without needing surgery for corrections. If addressed at a young age, when the bones are still flexible enough to work with, corrections to align the upper jaw with the lower jaw are much easier to do.
Parents, please take notice of how your child is chewing and the alignment of their teeth. If they should need early orthodontic treatment, please call Dr. Yazji as soon as you notice anything that may need attention. If you are not sure, please call for an appointment and get a professional opinion with x-rays to show what you are dealing with by the time your child is seven years of age.

If you should have any questions about your family’s teeth and oral care, we have a happy and professional team ready to assist you.

If you have bite problems or your teeth are crooked, you have probably considered braces for cosmetic reasons. But did you know that there are many health reasons to straighten your teeth, too?
If your teeth are not aligned correctly, your bite can be off, as well. Having bite problems such as an overbite or underbite can cause mouth pain and jaw pain. You also may have problems chewing or speaking, because teeth that do not fit together properly do not work as well as teeth that are properly aligned.
The health of your teeth and gums may suffer, as well. When your teeth are crooked, crowded, or misaligned, you may have problems cleaning them properly through no fault of your own. This can lead to gingivitis (gum disease) and tooth decay. Left untreated, gum disease and tooth decay can contribute to your overall health in a bad way – they have even been proven to be a significant factor in diabetes and heart disease. Dr. Yazji Orthodontics and Insignia Advanced Smile Design in West Park, Florida can help prevent that possible pain and health problems. Dr. Yazji knows that straight teeth and a perfect smile are the best defense against any potential periodontal problems and will guide you through the process of perfecting your smile.
First, you will receive a thorough exam, making sure that you are a good candidate for Insignia Advanced Smile Design. Then a scan is done of your mouth, using cutting edge 3-D technology, noting the placement of your teeth and how they can be moved to best serve your quest for a beautiful smile. You will be able to see a 3-D visualization of your new smile before treatment even begins.
Insignia Advanced Smile Design braces are custom made, unlike traditional braces, and this results in lesser time in the dentist’s chair and fewer visits to the dentist’s office. This means less money spent on you and a much shorter treatment time. Your smile will be beautiful in less time than you might think, and that is a wonderful thing.
If you think that you are ready to talk to someone about getting Insignia Advanced Smile Design in West Park, Florida, please contact the office of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics to schedule an appointment at (954) 217-3737. Or if you prefer, visit their website for more information on the subject.
The health and beauty of your teeth and gums can be connected to your overall health and wellbeing, and your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you. Not everyone has a perfect smile – and your teeth spacing or the general appearance of your teeth or bite may cause you to be self-conscious about smiling.
A beautiful smile can give you the improved self-confidence you need to try new things – a new job, new promotion, even working up the courage to meet someone special. Subconsciously, others may feel that if you are taking good care of your teeth, you are taking care of other things as well, whether it be work or your overall health. Whatever it is that you want to try, self-confidence can help you get there. A beautiful, perfect smile is a confidence builder, reducing any embarrassment or self-consciousness you might feel. It might even make others feel more confident in you.

An Easier Way to Stop Sleep Apnea – Obstructive sleep apnea is a killer, but not a silent one. Obstructive sleep apnea is caused by loose or excessive flesh at the back of the throat and causes your breathing to stop temporarily, causing loud snoring. This may happen dozens, even hundreds, of times every night without you realizing it. It deprives your brain and body of the restorative sleep that it needs every night and the oxygen that your organs need to function. You need sleep to live a healthy life; it is essential to your wellbeing, and poor sleep can lead to daytime drowsiness, obesity, high blood pressure, and even death.
If you have been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea, you may have been given a prescription for CPAP (continuous positive air pressure machine), which stops obstructive sleep apnea by using a mask and forcing oxygen, keeping the throat open. CPAP can be a wonderful thing for sleep apnea; it saves lives – if you use it every time you sleep.
The problem with CPAP masks is that they are bulky, and the oxygen is noisy. You are also connected to the tank with tubes, and if you roll around while you sleep you can become tangled or disconnected. This causes many people not to use the CPAP machine as they should. Non-compliance with CPAP machines is common.
Fortunately, there is now a better way to treat sleep apnea, and it is an approved treatment according to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. OAT treatment for obstructive sleep apnea is an alternative to CPAP. It is a personalized, customized treatment for you, and has been proven to work without bulky masks and noisy oxygen.
OAT treatment for sleep apnea is oral appliance therapy – it is an appliance that fits comfortably in your mouth and keeps the airway open. Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics will take impressions of your teeth and provide you with OAT treatment for sleep apnea in Miramar that is truly comfortable and helps solve the problem. Because it fits your mouth and doesn’t distort (like a boil and wear over-the-counter oral appliances), this customized oral appliance therapy in Miramar, Florida doesn’t cause mouth irritation and you are more likely to wear it at night.
OAT treatment can also help plain old snoring that isn’t a symptom of sleep apnea. Oat treatment for snoring is very effective, and not only helps you have better sleep, but it can also ease your partner’s sleep as well.
If you think that you are ready to talk to someone about OAT treatment for sleep apnea in Miramar to help with your snoring or your obstructive sleep apnea, please contact the office of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics to schedule an appointment at (954) 217-3737.

If you are considering braces, you should think about using Incognito Lingual Braces in Miami Springs, especially if you want braces that are unnoticeable. These braces are called ‘incognito’ for a reason because they are virtually unnoticeable in your mouth. Many patients have reported that most people don’t even realize that they are wearing braces, making them a popular choice for both teens and adults.
Before these new treatments were created, you were never able to hide traditional braces. But now, unlike the days when you needed a mouth full of metal to straighten your teeth and give you a new smile, Incognito Lingual Braces have low-profile wires. This in and of itself is enough to make the braces less noticeable, but Incognito lingual braces have brackets that actually fit behind the teeth instead of in front. The smaller wires are attached to those same brackets behind your teeth, lowering their visibility even more.
Incognito lingual braces are custom made to fit your teeth, affording precise control of tooth movement. Because you don’t take them out like clear aligners, they are working on your teeth 24-7, and you don’t have to worry about the amount of time you keep them in your mouth – or even about forgetting to put them back in after you eat or drink and leaving them somewhere. You can’t lose braces that stay in your mouth, and that can sometimes be a problem with clear aligners, especially with teens. Lingual braces solve that problem while being just as discreet as clear aligners.
Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics in Miami Springs is an expert with Incognito Lingual braces, so much so that she has earned Orthodontics recognition as a “Center for Excellence” Incognito braces provider in Miami Springs. Only the latest techniques and technologies are used by the experienced staff and will work with you to help create your perfect smile. The well-being of her patients is just as important to Dr. Yazji is the end result of treatment, and the smile design techniques that she uses are chosen both for their effectiveness and their comfort.
You deserve a beautiful, straight smile. If you think that you are ready for your Incognito lingual braces in Miami Springs, contact Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics to schedule a consultation at (954) 217-3737. Or if you prefer, visit their website for more information on the subject.
