The Best Early Orthodontic Treatment for Children in Tamarac

Interceptive orthodontics is a phased treatment plan for young children between the ages of 7 to 11 years. Early orthodontic treatment is believed to result in less treatment later and is used to correct bite and other alignment problems while the teeth and jaw are still growing and more receptive to realignment.

Tamarac residents choose Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics to diagnose and correct crooked and misplaced teeth at any age. Using the latest technologies and advances in orthodontics, Dr. Yazji offers the best children's orthodontic treatment in Tamarac.

The American Association of Orthodontics (AAO) recommends that all children receive an orthodontic assessment by age 7 or sooner if a problem has presented itself. Dr. Yazji has the skills and experience necessary to conduct a comprehensive children’s orthodontic evaluation of the alignment of your child’s teeth and jaw. Malocclusion refers to the imperfect positioning of the teeth when the jaws are closed, and is the focus of early orthodontic assessment.  Some of the malocclusions that Dr. Yazji will evaluate include:

  • Misaligned teeth
  • Protruding teeth
  • Uneven bite
  • Teeth crowding  
  • Uneven development of upper and lower jaw
  • Extreme tongue thrust habits
  • Narrower dental arches

Interceptive orthodontics refers to early orthodontic treatment, which is beneficial because it “intercepts” a developing problem early on and can correct the underlying cause by guiding the growth of jaw and facial bones.  Interceptive orthodontics for Tamarac children can provide more space for the growth of incoming permanent teeth, while ensuring that a child’s permanent teeth are aligned properly as they come in.

Although some malocclusions are genetic, others can be the result of accidents or habits such as thumb-sucking. Whatever the root cause, Dr. Yazji can assess and recommend an individualized orthodontic treatment plan for children to bring about their healthiest and happiest smile.
