Doral’s Most Trusted Orthodontist

As your child’s teeth develop, you watch as they lose the baby teeth and their permanent teeth begin to come in.  Whether or not your child’s teeth appear crooked or crowded, or thumb sucking was an issue during the toddler years, it’s important to have your child evaluated by an orthodontist at an early age. Orthodontic treatment in young children is known as interceptive orthodontics, and it can begin as early as age 6 or 7. At this age, teeth are still developing and the jaw is still growing. Certain conditions, such as crowding, can be easier to confront. Since a child’s jaw is still growing, early treatment is helpful and can minimize treatment later on.

Doral’s Most Trusted Orthodontist, Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, believes that a healthy smile is an immeasurable gift that every child deserves.  Dr. Yazji is specifically trained to diagnose and treat problems related to oral development. By age seven, children usually have their first permanent molars and incisors, which allows Dr. Yazji to evaluate crowding, cross bites, and other alignment problems. Doral’s leading Orthodontist, Dr. Yazji, will monitor and evaluate your child’s growth, including assessing crowding, cross bites, and other alignment problems, that then allows Dr. Yazji to create a treatment plan that will be the most effective.

Doral families love Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics and have been trusting their children’s teeth to her care for years!  Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics will approach your child’s orthodontics in a two-phase treatment plan.  Phase one focuses on the development of your child’s jaw.  It is imperative that their jaw can develop in a way that will accommodate all of their permanent teeth as well as improve their dental bite. This is the key reason for an orthodontic evaluation by age 7. After the initial evaluation, it’s usually natural to take a “time-out” to allow your child’s teeth to emerge naturally.

Once your child’s permanent teeth have erupted, Doral’s foremost family orthodontist will begin the second phase. Dr. Yazji’s goal during the Phase Two treatment is to ensure that your child’s teeth are perfectly aligned along with a correct bite.  At this point in their treatment, Phase Two usually includes full upper and lower braces on all teeth for an average of 24 months. 

At Doral’s 5-Star Rated Orthodontist, Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, patients can choose from tooth-colored ceramic or metal brackets, a fun option called WildSmiles® braces, Invisalign Teen or Incognito Lingual Braces.
