Early Orthodontic Treatment Creates a Healthy Smiles in Davie

Whether your child has been or continues to be a thumb sucker or their teeth appear crowded or crooked, it is vitally important that your child be evaluated by an orthodontist at an early age.  The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children see an orthodontist as early as age seven. At this young 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.

Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics believes that a healthy smile is a gift every child deserves. Davie’s Family-Centered Orthodontist, Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, welcomes the opportunity to meet and evaluate your child, detail her findings, and outline a treatment plan should it be warranted for your children. Some of the concerns that should warrant parents’ attention include:

  • Thumb sucking after the age of five
  • Crowded front teeth (permanent teeth)
  • Speech impediments
  • The timing of the loss of baby teeth
  • Poorly aligned teeth

The age of 7, or when kids are typically in first grade, is an ideal time for their initial orthodontic evaluation.  At this point, most children will have some of their adult permanent front teeth as well as their first set of adult molars. When these key dental "landmarks" are in place, Davie’s Leading Orthodontist, Dr. Maria Yazji and her highly trained team, can evaluate and identify how a child's bite is likely to develop in the coming years.

Davie’s renowned children’s’ orthodontist, Dr. Yazji, recommends a two-phase approach to your child’s orthodontic care.  The initial Phase One will focus on your child’s jaw development, the number one factor why a child should be evaluated by the age of seven. It is critical to determine that the conditions exist that will allow your child’s jaw to develop so that their mouth can accommodate all of their permanent teeth. This is the primary goal of treatment during Phase One. An added benefit is to also improve their dental bite.

The second phase of childhood orthodontic care begins once your child’s permanent teeth have erupted.  Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics focuses on smiles for a lifetime! Dr. Yazji will create a customized treatment plan after she determines the best course of action.  Most children within Phase Two receive both upper and lower braces over a course of approximately two years. Innovation is an integral part of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics.  Utilizing state-of-the-art orthodontic technologies and innovative treatment options including Invisalign and Invisalign Teen (clear braces) and Incognito (hidden braces), as well as the traditional metal braces that most parents knew of as a child, Dr. Yazji affords parents a wide menu of orthodontic treatments for your children.

An evaluation by Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics will determine your child’s orthodontic needs such as crowding, cross bites, and other alignment problems. Dr. Yazji will provide the expertise and skill to deliver a healthy smile to cherish.
