8 Benefits of a Straight Smile

Exercising regularly, eating a balanced diet, drinking enough water – all these things benefit your health and well-being. Spending time with family and friends and doing the things you love can keep you feeling good, too. But, did you know that your smile can play a part in your health and wellness, too? It’s true, your smile can play an important role in your overall health and affect your self-esteem. At Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, we help our patients in South Florida get their best smiles. Let’s take a look at 8 benefits of a straight smile:

 

  1. A straight smile looks good to others. Most people, when asked to rate the attractiveness of someone with straight teeth and someone with crooked teeth, will rate the person with a straight smile as more attractive, and assume they are more intelligent and successful too. That’s why people who are in the public eye fix their teeth, and anyone who wants to look their best may consider straightening their teeth with orthodontic treatment.
  2. Straight teeth may be healthier than crowded teeth, since crowded teeth exert unnecessary pressure on surrounding teeth, which can lead to tooth damage and even tooth loss. Straight teeth sit in perfect alignment in the mouth. Think of it this way – when you’re on a crowded bus, crammed next to the people around you, you’re a lot less comfortable than you are when you have enough space. Your teeth feel the same way!
  3. Straight teeth are easier to keep clean. Even if you brush three times a day and floss every night, if your teeth are crowded and crooked, there are surface areas on those teeth that are going to be harder to keep clean. Straight teeth, however, aren’t obstructed and can be cleaned across their entire surface.
  4. Chew as nature intended with straight teeth. For many of the foods you may be eating, the process of digestion begins in the mouth. Your teeth are made to be able to chew food, and chewing food thoroughly is important for your health. But some people with misaligned bites and crooked teeth find chewing to be uncomfortable. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, straightening your teeth through orthodontic treatment can lead to the “better function” of your teeth, including chewing.
  5. No more headaches if your headaches are caused by a misaligned bite. An overbite, underbite, crossbite, or other common bite issue means your teeth aren’t lining up as they should. This can cause tension on surrounding muscles in your face, neck, and jaw, leading to facial pain and headaches. If your headaches are due to your bite, aligning your teeth with Invisalign® treatment or another treatment option at the offices of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics may help you solve the problem.
  6. No more TMJ pain if, like your headaches, your temporomandibular joint condition is caused or exacerbated by a bite issue or misaligned teeth. This painful, uncomfortable issue may be relieved once your bite is corrected and you can chew without jaw trouble.

7.Better selfies, school pictures, and family photos can be taken with a new and improved smile. Feeling good about your straight smile can give you the confidence you need to smile wide in photos and let you have keepsakes you’ll love to look back at. Orthodontic treatment in Miami and South Florida from Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics can help you get a straight smile  that’s photo-ready.

  1. Increased self-esteem is commonly reported among people who straighten their smiles through orthodontic treatment. When you’re no longer embarrassed to show off your smile, and you like the way your smile looks, your self-esteem can grow. The American Association of Orthodontics also notes the positive effect that a straight smile can have on self-esteem.

 

If you need one or all of these benefits of a straight smile in your life, let us at the offices of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics help you! Contact us today for a consultation with Dr. Yazji at our Miami, Brickell, or Weston office. See how straight teeth and a better smile from Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics can benefit you.

This is How Jessica Got a New Smile She Loves

Invisalign Clear Aligners.: Jessica moved to Miami for a great new job. She got a new car, a new apartment, and new furniture. She settled into her new life in the Magic City. But something was missing. When she met with her manager, when her co-worked flashed their perfect pearly whites, when she went on a few blind dates and felt self-conscious – it was her smile. Her teeth had always bothered her. They were too crooked and she had never been happy with the way they looked.

So, what did Jessica do? She decided to get a new smile in Miami – a picture-perfect one to fit her exciting new life. A smile that would bring her confidence at work and in her personal life. A smile that would bring out her best self. Jessica got a new smile created just for her with Invisalign Clear Aligners.

 

Finding the right treatment

First, Jessica searched online to learn more about the best ways for adults to straighten their teeth. Invisalign® treatment seemed like it might be a good fit. She liked the fact that she could straighten her teeth with thin, clear aligners instead of the metal braces she remembered from middle school. Being able to go to work wearing these barely-noticeable aligners was a big plus.

She found out that she should see an experienced orthodontist in Miami for her Invisalign® aligners, which brought her to Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics. At the offices of Dr. Yazji Orthodontics, patients can receive Invisalign® treatment from Dr. Maria Yazji, DDS, a Diamond Invisalign® provider who is among the top Invisalign® orthodontists in North America. Dr. Yazji would help Jessica get a beautiful new smile with customized clear aligners.

 

Wearing her new aligners

Once Jessica had her Invisalign® aligners, she was working towards a new, straight smile as she went to work, went to the gym, and went out with friends in Miami. When she went out to eat, she could take out her aligners during the meal. When she brushed and flossed at night, being able to remove her Invisalign® aligners made things simple.

Every few weeks she went into an in-office appointment to check her progress, and see if it was time to switch to the next set of aligners she’d been given. And when she had a question about her treatment when she was visiting her hometown, Anywhere Orthodontics let her upload a scan of her smile using her phone and get feedback from Dr. Yazji. As the months went by, Jessica could see her smile improve more and more.

 

Loving her new smile

In just about a year-and-a-half, Jessica’s teeth were straight. Her new smile was perfect! Her confidence skyrocketed and before long she got the promotion she’d been going for. Now when she meets with her boss, she smiles. When she goes on dates, she smiles. When someone compliments her beautiful smile, she knows it’s thanks to Invisalign® aligners and Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics.

Do you want to get a new smile too? Let us at the offices of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics help you. Find out if Invisalign® clear aligners are right for you when you set up a consultation with Dr. Yazji. Contact us today for more information on getting your best smile. Hablamos Español.

Invisalign® Aligners Dos and Don’ts

Invisalign® Aligners Dos and Don’ts: “Mom, what do I do?” If you have a pre-teen, teen, or college-aged kid, you may have heard this more times than you can count. As they grow up, you support and guide them as they learn how to navigate through life. School, work, friends, and their first love — you’re there to listen and with the right advice when they ask. But when it comes to straightening their smile, you may not be sure what to tell them. You know a straight, bright smile looks great. You know a beautiful smile can give them an advantage in life. But what are these Invisalign® clear aligners they’re talking about?

 

At Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, we’re here to help our patients and their families get the treatment that’s right for them. Invisalign® aligners are a popular treatment choice for teen and adult patients in South Florida, so let’s take a look at a few dos and don’ts of Invisalign® treatment:

DO use Invisalign® clear aligners to correct orthodontic issues like crowding, crossbite, overbite, underbite, and gaps between teeth if recommended by your orthodontist. These clear plastic aligners are designed to gradually move teeth into their proper alignment. With convenient and affordable Invisalign® treatment in the Miami and Weston areas from Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, your son or daughter can achieve a great smile.

DON’T leave orthodontic problems untreated. Crowded, crooked teeth and misaligned bites can lead to bigger problems down the road, such as difficulty chewing, jaw pain, headaches, and decreased self-esteem. Years ago, people who didn’t have straight teeth had to live with it, but today a variety of treatment methods and advanced orthodontic technology make straightening teeth and correcting bite issues easier than ever.

DO keep up with Invisalign® treatment between scheduled office visits at our Weston, Brickell, or Miami offices with Anywhere Orthodontics. With this app and a smartphone, Invisalign® patients at Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics can scan their smile from wherever they are and communicate directly with Dr. Yazji. Anywhere Orthodontics lets patients with busy schedules get expert Invisalign® treatment on their terms – and with fewer appointments.

DON’T leave aligners out for too long. One of the great things about these clear, thin aligners is that they’re removable. So, eating, brushing, and flossing aren’t complicated by brackets and wires, and attending special events without aligners is possible thanks to Invisalign® treatment in Miami. But, Invisalign® aligners should be worn for at least 22 hours each day, every day until treatment is complete.

DO look for an experienced Invisalign® orthodontist for treatment in South Florida. There are a lot of orthodontists out there, but if you want Invisalign® clear aligners, find an Invisalign® Diamond provider. As one of the most experienced Invisalign® providers in North America, and Broward’s only Invisalign® Diamond provider, Dr. Yazji can help you or your child get a stellar smile.

DON’T hesitate to set up an Invisalign® consultation with Dr. Maria Yazji at one of our three office locations. Our friendly office team is here to help you get started. Hablamos Español. Invisalign® treatment from Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics creates perfect smiles in South Florida.

Achieve a Smile as Beautiful as Your Engagement Ring

He popped the question! With the engagement ring of her dreams sparkling on her finger, she smiled as she shared the big news with her mother and sisters. Shopping for the perfect wedding dress would come next, they joyfully anticipated as they admired her gorgeous ring. Then, picking out a venue, a cake, flowers, and finding a photographer for the perfect wedding pictures would follow. Suddenly, her smile dimmed. Wedding pictures meant lots of photos that captured their special day forever, photos of the bride and groom happy and smiling. Sadly, she just wasn’t confident or comfortable with the idea of seeing her smile forever captured in wedding pictures.

“What’s wrong?” her mother asked her, “Aren’t you excited?” “I am.” the bride-to-be answered softly, “but… it’s my teeth. I have never liked my crooked smile and I’m afraid it will be the one thing that’s not perfect for my wedding.” Her mother shook her head. “We should have gotten you braces when you were younger.” She said apologetically. “I know what you can do to improve your teeth and smile!” her sister said excitedly, “After my friend from work got engaged, she went to Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics and was fitted with clear  Invisalign® aligners . Her smile was perfect – just in time for her wedding day!”

“What is Invisalign?” their mother asked. “They’re thin custom-fitted clear aligners that you wear to straighten your teeth. Everyone gets them these days.” her sister replied. “My friend absolutely loves her Invisalign results, and her orthodontic team at Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics in Miami. There is even an office in Weston, too!”  “That’s a really good idea!” the future bride said, “I’ll have to look into that so I can get a smile that’s as perfect as this ring.”

If you’ve dreaming of a  straighter smile that’s as bright and as flawless as your engagement ring, our friendly and experienced professionals at Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics are here to help you. With three office locations in West Miami, Brickell and Weston, convenient appointment hours, and affordable orthodontic treatment options, your dream smile is just a phone call away!

Invisalign Clear Aligners

Clear Invisalign® aligners are a very popular and effective treatment option for patients who want to get a straight smile.

Feel Good, Look Good, and Make Others Want to Work with You

Invisalign Clear Aligners: Did you know that smiling can actually help you get ahead in your professional career? There are many different reasons why this is true, but you don’t have to just take my word for it. Experts from all around the world agree; smiling will help you in your career.

Smiling just feels good. Science says that smiling can release endorphins and other mood-enhancing hormones. Those hormones can reduce your stress levels and induce pleasure. Smiling can even make you enjoy your job more!

Smiling looks good. By smiling, others will have a more positive impression of you. Psychology has found that smiling enhances others’ perceptions of your competence, likeability, and courteousness. Others will be more likely to trust you and work with you. The ability to effectively work with others is not only an attribute that an employer will look for but is also something that every successful leader should have. Getting hired or getting promoted often starts with a smile.

Smiling is contagious. It is human instinct to mirror others’ emotions. When you smile, the people around you are likely to reciprocate that emotion. People will associate you with positivity and satisfaction. Whether you work in sales or in the medical field, being someone that others feel good around is extremely important for your success in your career!

If you are insecure about your smile, it is not too late to get help. I know, committing to orthodontic treatment as a professional adult seems impossible, right? Luckily, Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics understands your hesitation. They know that your tight schedules and hectic days do not allow a lot of time for long and invasive procedures. Dr. Yazji Orthodontics provides many convenient services and office hours so that you can find a tan orthodontic treatment plan that works for you. Whether you want a quick fix or a long-lasting solution, there is a treatment option for you and your smile.

Invisalign Clear Aligners

For most busy professionals who want a picture-perfect smile, a common treatment method is Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign is a simple alternative to traditional braces. Traditional braces draw attention to your teeth while Invisalign uses clear aligners that are barely visible. Invisalign aligners can be removed when necessary, making them a great choice for job seekers going on interviews, teens posing for the yearbook or prom photos, and for cleaning and eating.

Smiling can benefit your life in so many different ways. There is no reason why you should feel the need to hide your smile. Feel good, look good, and make those around you want to work with you. If you want to get ahead professionally, start with your smile. Make an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics to see how they can help you smile more. We have three conveniently located offices for our patients in West Miami, Brickell, Weston, and surrounding areas. Hablamos español

Why Smiling Can Improve Your Dating Life

Invisalign Treatment: They were on their first date in a Miami restaurant. Their friends had set them up, saying they’re a perfect match. But something wasn’t right. Throughout the night, he didn’t really smile. She thought it was strange, he didn’t seem to be having a good time. He actually was happy to be there, but he was insecure about his smile — he had never liked his crooked teeth. She thought he didn’t like her, though, and their first date fizzled out.

In the same restaurant, another couple was on their first date, too. They’d met online, both liking the other’s profile pic. They also both happened to have straight, bright smiles. She smiled widely, he exuded confidence. They found out that they had so much in common. They’d studied the same thing in school and were both up for big promotions. They definitely wanted to see each other again.

A great smile can do a lot for your dating life in South Florida. A Princeton study, noted on psychologicalscience.org, found that first impressions are formed in a tenth of a second. When you meet someone for the first time, it takes only this fraction of a second to form lasting opinions about them – and it’s the same for them when they meet you.

Of course, beauty is more than skin deep, but it’s known that people who have straight smiles are seen as being not only more attractive but more intelligent and successful as well. These split-second assumptions based on appearance can come into play when you’re on the dating scene. A better smile can improve your confidence, allowing you to be more open to meeting new people and trying new things. If you have a smile that you’re not happy with, fixing it with Invisalign® clear aligners can give your self-confidence – and your dating life – the boost you’re looking for.

Invisalign® clear aligners, available at the West Miami, Brickell, and Weston offices of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, are convenient and custom fit to your unique bite. These thin plastic aligners can be used to correct common orthodontic issues, including:

  • crowding
  • gapped teeth
  • underbite
  • overbite
  • crossbite
  • open bite

Anywhere Orthodontics by Dr. Maria Yazji combines Invisalign® treatment with remote appointment options, in addition to regular in-office appointments, perfect for patients with busy schedules.

10 Benefits of Having a Great Smile

When it comes to making a good impression, the first thing that comes to mind is a great smile. It’s hard to feel cranky when you are with someone who is looking at you with a genuine and happy smile. Researchers have long known that smiling has quite a few benefits worth considering.  Here are 10 benefits of smiling that will make you rethink how often you smile each day:

  1. Improved Mood

Smiling has been scientifically proven to contribute to a release of mood-enhancing chemicals, such as endorphins, in your brain which can increase feelings of contentedness and happiness.

  1. Pain and Stress Relief

All those feel-good chemicals in your brain can help to relieve pain and stress. Similar to the level of pain relief that medications can give, smiling affects the dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin neurotransmitters which can lower your heart rate, blood pressure and lessen pain.

  1. Stronger Immune System

The chemical reactions that make you feel relaxed and happy will also contribute to a healthier and stronger immune system!

  1. Longer and Healthier Life

Those who smile more tend to live longer. In fact, one study found that, on average, people live seven years longer compared to those who don’t smile. This is most likely caused by the many other health benefits that smiling helps such as lowering blood pressure, heart rate, stress and anxiety. Smiling may even strengthen the immune system and overall health.

  1. Makes You More Attractive

People smile as an affable gesture. Most of us attribute smiling to other likeable characteristics such as friendliness, happiness, and approachability.  No matter where you are in the world or what type of personality or physical attributes you are attracted to, smiling is almost always rated as more attractive than not smiling.

  1. Better First Impressions

When you realize that people are judging you more positively when you are smiling, it becomes obvious that people who smile tend to leave a better first impression when they meet others! Somebody’s first impression of you is what will stick in their mind long after that initial first meeting. It only makes sense that those who smile more will be project that certain confidence and warmth that is a desirable attribute to have at work and at play.

  1. Stronger Relationships

People usually respond positively to genuine and friendly people. By leaving a positive first impression and being perceived as more attractive and friendly, you will continue to attract people who want to be around you and your infectious smile.

  1. Get Paid More

Smiling can make you more productive and get your recognized, especially at work. It’s no surprise that employees that smile more frequently tend to get more promotions, raises, and better tips!

  1. Boost Your Self-Confidence

Smiling makes you feel good and makes others want to be around you. The way you view yourself and your smile will surely enhance your confidence!

  1. Smiling is Contagious

Why a great smile can help your career?

There are many reasons why a beautiful smile can help your career. People who have a nice smile are usually seen as more attractive. More attractive people are usually thought to possess other desirable attributes such as confidence. In psychology, this phenomenon is known as the Halo Effect, but you don’t have to be a psychologist to realize that a nice smile can get you far in your career.

People who are smiling are seen as more friendly, confident, and trustworthy. Naturally, people are going to want to be around someone with those characteristics. Just as easy as it is for someone with a beautiful smile to build friendships, impressing employers, bosses, and clients can be just as simple for them!

Not only does a beautiful smile impress those around you, but it will also boost your self-esteem. Feeling good about yourself is important. Many professionals note that confidence is crucial for career advancement. According to a study done at Pennsylvania State University, individuals who smile more are more likely to receive a promotion.

Why improving your smile can advance your career

Orthodontic Treatment: Whether we would like to admit it, or not, appearance influences our first impressions of people. Someone with wrinkled clothes can appear sloppy while someone with their hair perfectly groomed may come across as being very serious. Just like hairstyle and outfit choice, one’s smile can strongly affect our opinions of them. A smile is commonly the first thing we notice when we meet someone new. A person with a full set of straight teeth is often considered more attractive, happy, and healthy. Noticeable flaws in one’s smile can leave a negative impression. A beautiful and genuine smile displays happiness, confidence, and friendliness. Who wouldn’t want to be around someone like that?

Fortunately, Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics knows all too well how a smile can impact one’s confidence. If you are hiding your teeth or smile, employers, coworkers, and clients will notice. When you aren’t smiling, you can seem angry, unapproachable, and you appear less confident. Coming across as someone who appears to lack confidence in themselves, or who may not seem to work well with others can hurt your career immensely. No matter what field you are pursuing, improving your smile can improve your employment prospects. Employers want to hire and promote someone who appears successful, competent, productive, and is a team player. They want friendly, confident, and genuine individuals representing their brand. Let your employer know that you are a good representation of the company by showing off a beautiful, genuine smile! Flash them see a smile they will remember!

Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics wants to help you achieve your career goals and feel confident. They offer many options for personalized orthodontic treatment, regardless of your age, profession, or needed treatment. Services such as braces, Invisalign clear aligners, and Acceledent can all assist you in perfecting your smile.

Dr. Maria Yazji DDS, MS, is well aware that traditional, metal braces may not be ideal for career-oriented adults. However, there is now an alternative. Dr. Yazji has extensively trained in the latest techniques and the most modern orthodontic treatment advancements that emphasize the preservation of all teeth.  After obtaining her doctorate degree in Dental Surgery (DDS) from Northwestern University in Chicago, graduating in the top 5% of her class, she then went on to complete another two years of orthodontics specialty training, obtaining a Master of Science in Orthodontics degree (MS) from Northwestern University. Dr. Yazji has also been named an Invisalign Super Elite Premier Provider, placing her in the top 1% of Invisalign doctors in North America.

For individuals who are trying to perfect their smiles while continuing to work and appear professional, Dr. Yazji offers Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible to others, yet still provides the same benefits of traditional braces. Through a series of different sized aligners, Invisalign painlessly and gradually straightens your teeth. Invisalign is easy! No one will ever have to know you are seeking orthodontic treatment, but the confidence you will begin to radiate may certainly get noticed!
