The Revolutionary New Insignia Advanced Smile Design

Everyone deserves to have a smile they can be proud of. However, many people today do not know about the many options available for them in order to obtain their perfect smile. At Yazji Orthodontics, we strive to provide cutting-edge treatments to determine the best fitting treatment plan for our patients.

Today, we provide teeth straightening treatments that go beyond traditional metal braces. The Insignia Advanced Smile Design system is a revolutionary method that incorporates digital technology into the treatment plan in order to provide a beautiful smile in a more efficient manner.

 

Why Choose the Insignia Advanced Smile Design System?

The Insignia treatment is highly sought after for its many advantages in creating a beautiful smile in an efficient amount of time. A great benefit to using the Insignia treatment is that patients will have a completely customized treatment plan. The technology used to implement the treatment plan allows for clear and precise measurements of teeth alignment, allowing for more predictable outcomes. Due to the specialized treatment plan, patients can also expect to have fewer adjustment visits than with traditional braces.

 

The Technology Behind Insignia Advanced Smile Design System

At Yazji Orthodontics, we are committed to giving our patients access to treatments that incorporate the industry’s leading technology for teeth alignment. The technology used for the Insignia treatment is very sought after, and we are excited to be able to introduce this new way of mapping out treatment plans for our patients.

This system uses advanced software that takes 3D images of your mouth in order to develop a model version of your mouth. The use of the digital mold eliminates the need for potentially messy physical molds that are used with traditional braces, and are much more efficient.

Are You Brushing Long Enough? How Long Should You Brush Your Teeth and Other Oral Care Concerns

Orthodontics services in South Florida: A group of dental hygiene students in Miami was puzzled over something on their first day of class: How many minutes it takes to brush your teeth correctly. “I think it’s one minute, that seems like enough time,” the first student said. The second student shook her head: “I remember that it has something to do with that ‘Happy Birthday’ song. I think you sing it, like, two times? No, wait, three times maybe?” The third student chimed in: “I remember my orthodontist telling me about this – you should brush your teeth for two minutes.”

The third student had it right – if you want to make sure that you’re cleaning your teeth completely, you should brush your teeth for a full two minutes each time you brush. To be sure you’re brushing for two minutes, you can set a kitchen timer or stopwatch, use your phone to time yourself, brush for the length of a short song, or do whatever else works for you. But if you don’t brush your teeth regularly, or for a long enough time, bits of food and plaque may remain on your teeth — creating a breeding ground for the bacteria that can cause tooth decay. The American Dental Association (ADA) also recommends cleaning between your teeth every day, using dental floss, irrigators, or interdental brushes to help prevent cavities and gum disease.

It is important for everyone to keep their teeth clean, but if you have braces you may have to take extra care of your teeth. At Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, we know the importance of a healthy smile. Some South Florida patients may have a hard time cleaning around their braces or flossing between wires. As a patient at the Miami, Brickell, or Weston office of Dr. Yazji, your orthodontist can discuss oral care with you, and work with you to develop a teeth-cleaning regimen that works for you while you’re wearing braces.

October is National Dental Hygiene Month! Here are Three Steps to Healthier Smile:

When you think of a healthy smile, what comes to mind? Pearly white teeth? A mouth that’s free of cavities? Straight teeth? There are several components to a healthy smile – your teeth should look and function well. If you have any of the common dental issues that keep many patients in Miami from having their best smile, such as bite issues, crooked and crowded teeth, and dental cavities, there are a few steps you can take to get a healthier smile. Common Dental Issues:

  1. Practice good dental hygiene. In honor of National Dental Hygiene Month, we at Maria Yazji Orthodontics would like to remind our patients and prospective patients of the importance of proper oral care. The first step to healthy teeth is keeping your teeth clean and free of plaque and tartar. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that you:
  • Brush twice daily for two minutes at a time
  • Use fluoride toothpaste when you brush
  • Floss or clean between your teeth once a day

Keeping your teeth clean can help prevent dental caries (cavities), gingivitis, and other bothersome tooth and gum problems.

  1. Visit your dentist regularly. Seeing your dentist in South Florida for regularly scheduled checkups is also part of preventing tooth decay and gum disease. Your dentist can monitor the health of your mouth, and treat your dental issues before they become bigger problems. If necessary, your dentist can also prescribe preventative oral care products like a fluoride rinse, and recommend a personalized oral care approach, like using water irrigators or making lifestyle changes to keep your teeth in top shape.
  1. Correct bite issues and crooked teeth. Straight teeth are healthier teeth. When your teeth are crooked or crowded, they may be harder to clean entirely – which may lead to increased bacteria in your mouth and increased tooth decay. Crowded teeth also place more pressure on surrounding teeth than straight teeth do, and this pressure can damage your teeth. A misaligned bite can cause discomfort and make chewing difficult. Getting the proper orthodontic treatment from Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics can safely straighten your teeth and fix bite issues.

Insignia Advanced Smile Design braces from the offices of Dr. Yazji are helping patients in Miami and throughout South Florida get customized, comfortable orthodontic treatment. Insignia braces use advanced digital technology to create braces made to fit you, and your treatment plan will be designed to straighten your teeth quickly and gently.

At Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, we help patients of all ages get great, straight smiles while promoting overall dental health. To schedule an appointment to find out if Insignia treatment — or one of our other services — is right for you, contact us today. Straighten your teeth and have a healthier smile with Dr. Yazji Orthodontics.

3 Reasons Your Orthodontic Treatment Should Be Customized

Orthodontic Treatment in South Florida: Have you ever worn a piece of clothing that’s labeled “one-size-fits-all”? It will fit, sort of shapelessly. It may get the job done, but it never really fits that well. A favorite pair of jeans or a well-loved t-shirt is usually a favorite because it fits perfectly and is comfortable. If you’re buying a dress or a suit for a special event, you’ll probably have it tailored to get the best fit. And one-size-fits-all shoes could never work. So, when it comes to your orthodontic treatment, one-size-fits-all isn’t the best approach either.

Each person has an individual dental imprint. Your bite is unlike anyone else’s, and your orthodontic treatment should be custom-tailored to your teeth, palate, and facial structure. While one patient in Miami may need extensive dental correction and several years in braces, another South Florida patient may need relatively minor correction with shorter treatment time. Braces that are customized to your needs are available at Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics through Insignia Advanced Smile Design.

Custom-fit orthodontic treatment is a great choice for patients in South Florida because:

  1. You will spend less time in braces. Braces are a great advancement in improving the look of your smile and the function of your bite. A straight smile improves self-confidence and a properly aligned bite and straight teeth – along with daily brushing, flossing, and use of ADA-approved fluoride toothpaste — can mean better overall dental health. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, the orthodontic treatment allows your teeth and jaw to “function as nature intended” and “promotes oral health and general physical health.” But despite the many benefits of orthodontic treatment, many patients still don’t love the way metal braces look. With Insignia Advanced Smile Design treatment, you will get all of the benefits of braces with a shorter treatment time than that of traditional braces.

 

  1. Fewer visits to the orthodontist will be required. Patients of Maria Yazji Orthodontics in South Florida have busy schedules. Work, school, family schedules, and more keep patients of all ages busy during the week and on weekends. If you worry about fitting orthodontic appointments into your schedule, let Dr. Yazji Orthodontics help you. Customized Insignia braces are made to fit your teeth, and you won’t need to come into the office as frequently as you would if you had traditional silver or ceramic braces.

 

  1. Your treatment will be precise. Insignia Advanced Smile Design braces at the offices of Dr. Maria Yazji is the culmination of two decades of research into creating more precise orthodontic treatment. Advanced computer algorithms, 3D technology, and interactive design software will allow your dentist to build the ideal bite and perfect smile for you. You will be able to see a digital image projection of your new smile before you start treatment. And Insignia braces have a 100% customized fit for efficient and comfortable orthodontic treatment.

Orthodontic Treatment in South Florida: To schedule a consultation for Insignia braces at one of our three offices, contact us today. We have helped patients in Miami and throughout South Florida get their best smiles, see what they have to say about their treatment — and let us help you too.

How an Orthodontist Can Help You Get a Straight Smile

American Association of Orthodontists (AAO): A mother in Miami is looking into getting braces for her daughter. Her daughter has just started middle school, and the mother suspects her daughter is self-conscious about her crooked front teeth. Her daughter no longer smiles with her teeth and has started to cover her mouth with her hand when she speaks or laughs. The mother knows that straight teeth can boost self-esteem and help foster a healthy self-image in adolescents, and wants her daughter to be confident in school. But no-one in their family has ever needed braces, so she’s not sure where to start when it comes to getting her daughter a straight smile.

Their family visits the dentist twice a year for cleanings, as recommended by the ADA. Since they have dental insurance, she asks the dentist if he can straighten her daughter’s teeth. He explains that while he can diagnose and treat many common dental problems, straightening teeth requires a dental specialist known as an orthodontist. An orthodontist has the additional training required to safely and effectively realign teeth — correcting crooked teeth, crowding, bite issues, and other common dental problems. The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends seeing an orthodontist because only these specialized dentists have “the skills and experience to give you the best smile.”

Dr. Maria Yazji has specialized training in orthodontics, and she and her team are skilled in the techniques and latest treatment methods to get South Florida patients of all ages straight, healthy smiles. At your first appointment, your orthodontist will assess your needs and develop a treatment plan for you. Whether you want to straighten crooked teeth, close gaps between teeth, correct an overbite, or seek professional treatment for another orthodontic issue, Dr. Yazji and her team can help you!

At Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, a variety of orthodontic treatments are available to patients in Miami and throughout South Florida, including:

  • Invisalign Clear Aligners
  • Traditional Silver and Ceramic Braces
  • Incognito Lingual Braces

Keeping Your Teeth Clean While Wearing Braces

Traditional Braces: A fifteen-year-old patient was so excited to get his braces off. After almost three long years of brackets, wires, and rubber bands he now had a great, straight smile he could show off. But there was one problem at his dental checkup – he needed fillings. Lots of them. His happiness with his new smile disappeared at the thought of the dentist’s drill.

What happened? Like many teenagers, he hadn’t always kept up with his dental hygiene. A lack of regular brushing and flossing can lead to tooth and gum problems.  Eating sugary and starchy snacks like soda, candy, and French fries (the kind of stuff most kids and teens love) can contribute to tooth decay. And since he was wearing braces, these foods easily became trapped and gave cavity-causing bacteria something to feed on. Once his braces were off, cavities were found on his back teeth and in between a few teeth. When you have braces, it is vital that you keep your teeth clean.

How can you practice good oral hygiene when wearing braces to get a healthy straight smile from Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics? The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) suggests you use:

  • Interproximal brushes – these tiny brushed can reach the spaces between your teeth much better than a regular toothbrush can. The AAO states that these dental hygiene tools “can help dislodge plaque and food particles trapped between teeth and around brackets.”
  • Water Irrigators – These handy devices use a high-powered stream of water to clean your teeth. Using dental floss can be downright annoying with braces. Teens and pre-teens wearing traditional braces may become frustrated with threading floss between wires, and may neglect to floss for days at a time. Water irrigators make it easy, however, for South Florida patients of Dr. Yazji to clean their teeth.
  • Fluoride mouth rinses – To guard against decay, your dentist may prescribe you a fluoride rinse to be used once or twice a day, or they may recommend an over-the-counter rinse for you to use.

Invisalign Braces

So how does Invisalign treatment usually work? Upon an initial screening and assessment of your current teeth alignment, we will create a series of customized clear aligners. Each aligner will be worn for about two weeks, and then as your teeth shift into better alignment you will progress to the next aligner. This process makes straightening teeth extremely efficient, and patients do not need to rely on making an appointment to manually make adjustments, such as the method in which traditional metal braces work.

Invisalign benefits go far beyond just a cosmetic procedure. Having a straight and aligned smile allows for better cleaning that can prevent many future dental problems, such as gum disease. In addition, if teeth are not properly aligned, decay and deterioration can result in teeth. By investing in Invisalign braces, you are investing in yourself and for a healthy future.

The convenience and efficiency of Invisalign, makes this treatment extremely sought after. With traditional braces, the treatment could take years before results are seen, and involve many appointments for adjustments. However, with Invisalign, patients can simply switch to their subsequent filler, with no painful adjustments needing to take place. Additionally, traditional metal braces limit the types of food that can be enjoyed in order to not get stuck and damage the brackets. Since Invisalign can be easily removed while eating, you can be free to still include all your favorite foods in your diet.

Give yourself the bright future you deserve and contact Dr. Yazji and her team today at (954) 217-3737 to set up a consultation. You’ll thank yourself once you see your beautiful results, and now with Invisalign, these results can be achieved much easier.

The Best Invisalign Treatment Provider for Pembroke Pines Residents

Best Invisalign Treatment Provider: Between the practicality and length of treatment, the idea of visiting an orthodontist to achieve the perfect smile can scare some people. However, at Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, we recognize that this does not have to be the case for our patients. We offer cutting-edge treatments, such as Invisalign, that can correct teeth in a more efficient, less painful, and easier way than other treatment providers.

Invisalign is a great option for residents of Pembroke Pines who have always wanted to achieve their perfect smile but are hesitant to undergo the traditional braces experience. While metal braces involve brackets that can sometimes require painful adjustments and dietary restrictions, Invisalign is hardly visible when worn, can be taken out for eating, and consists of a more efficient treatment plan.

Invisalign consists of clear and flexible fillers, that mimic the look of a mouthguard. Just as they can be taken out for eating, Invisalign is just as easy and comfortable to insert back into your mouth. Because of this, you can say goodbye to frustrating brushing to get a thorough clean around the brackets. With Invisalign, you can enjoy the benefits of directly brushing your teeth, which can ensure a healthier and whiter smile.

Treatment plans involve of a series of aligners that gradually adjust to your mouth as your alignment progresses. Most aligners are worn for about two weeks before gaining approval to switch to your next aligner stage. Invisalign aligners are highly recommended to be worn at least 22 hours a day in order to ensure results in a timely manner.

Another great benefit of using Invisalign, specifically at Dr. Yazji Orthodontics, is that appointments consist primarily of monitoring the progression of your treatment, and do not require the same painful and timely adjustments of traditional braces. Dr. Maria Yazji is committed to staying up to date with the latest technology to offer her patients the absolute best experience. Because of this, Dr. Yazji Orthodontics now offers virtual appointments through the Dental Monitoring App. With this app, patients can have direct communication with Dr. Yazji and her team throughout their treatment process. This app makes the Invisalign treatment even more efficient because now patients can gain approval for progressing to their next aligner from the comfort of their own home, saving the time of having to come in for an appointment.

You deserve to have a smile that showcases the bright person you are on the inside to the outside world. At Yazji Orthodontics we want to provide you with the best Invisalign treatment available, and we are committed to making sure your experience with us is positive from our first interaction.
