Cooper City’s Most Valued Orthodontist
The milestones for a child regarding their dental growth goes through several stages. As most children’s first permanent molars (also known as adult teeth) emerge around age six, they begin to lose their primary or “baby” teeth. Your child’s jaw is still developing and an early orthodontic assessment can lay the groundwork for their oral health in the years ahead. Orthodontic treatment in young children is known as interceptive orthodontics at the early age of 6 or 7. Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, Cooper City’s foremost orthodontist, has been providing early intervention and screening for children for over 22 years in the South Florida area.
At the age of either kindergarten or first grade, certain conditions, such as crowding, can be easier to confront. The impact of thumb sucking can be evaluated as well. Since a child’s jaw is still growing, early treatment is helpful and can minimize treatment later on. Cooper City’s Most Trusted Orthodontist, Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, believes that a healthy smile is an immeasurable gift that every child deserves.
With an early evaluation, Dr. Yazji is specifically trained to diagnose and treat problems related to your child’s oral development. Dr. Yazji can assess a range of possible developmental concerns such as crowding, cross bites, and other alignment problems. Cooper City’s renowned Orthodontist, Dr. Yazji, will monitor and evaluate your child’s oral growth because bones, which are still growing, makes it an ideal time to diagnose your child. The child’s upper dental arch is of specific interest in determining if your child’s jaw can develop in a way that will accommodate all of their permanent teeth as well as provide for a fully functioning and healthy bite.
Cooper City families adore Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics and her dedicated team and have been entrusting their children’s teeth to her care for years!
