Here are 6 ways parents can promote good oral hygiene with their children:

  1. Brush and floss along with your children and make sure that they see you enjoying it and discuss with them why.
  2. Take your children with you to the dentist and show them why it’s important to see the dentist.

It’s All In The Stats: The Truth About The Importance Of Your Smile

The Truth About The Importance Of Your Smile – Some people believe that communication begins with your words, but it starts much earlier than that. According to psychologist Albert Mehrabian’s communication model, only 7% of what we communicate is actually verbal, yet 55% is body language which encompasses your smile. Statistically speaking, your smile delivers a powerful message when you choose to send it. It says so much about yourself that you don’t realize, even the length and width of your smile and most certainly your teeth and whether they are cared for or not.

Every single time you smile you activate the messaging system in your brain that sends a neural text for some serotonin, dopamine, and endorphins to throw your body a party. This all happens within moments of you deciding to smile.

According to a university in Minnesota experiment, there are 19 different types of smiles but only 6 are due to happiness. Let Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics help you to make each of those 6 smiles outstanding! A study by a UC-San Francisco researcher found that these different types of smiles can be placed in one of two categories: polite or sincere smiles and can use up to 53 muscles in your face. If that isn’t enough, read these interesting facts?

  • Your smile can strengthen your immune system
  • Babies are said to be able to smile moments after they are born
  • Smiles can be contagious
  • Generally, women smile more than men (Except men who have visited Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics in South Florida!)

Your smile sends out the most basic human communication that says, “I’m worth getting to know.” It also says, “I’m open to new experiences, outgoing and fun to be around.”  Believe it or not, your smile is also thought to regulate blood pressure and improve your moods. If the strength and importance of your smile is important enough to have countless experiments and studies done, then it is important enough to invest in.

Early Orthodontic Treatment in Plantation

Early Orthodontic Treatment in Plantation – Happy National Children’s Dental Health Month! Here in Plantation, Florida, we are delivering big, healthy smiles because we know that Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics is here to help our smiles shine!

There are still a few uninformed people out there who don’t understand the importance of early Orthodontic treatment and why it is so urgent to make sure their children are seen by an experienced orthodontist by age 7. Many young people have overcrowded or crooked teeth or teeth that don’t align properly when they bite, and this could cause the jaws to become strained, damaged and painful. This produces even more problems for already problematic teeth, and when left unattended could become painful, not to mention costly in regard to corrective treatments that may become necessary. In some cases, this can even affect the shape of your child’s face.

Here are some reasons that orthodontic evaluations and/or treatments are necessary by age 7:

  1. To prevent or correct overcrowding of teeth and prevent future oral problems
  2. To correct the bite so the front and back teeth are aligned properly
  3. To reduce the damage to prominent teeth to prevent further damage
  4. To detect and/or treat other health problems like a cleft lip and palate or sleep apnea
  5. To improve appearance and self-esteem
  6. To give children their best smile!

The AAO (American Association of Orthodontist) recommends that you should schedule an appointment for your child to see an orthodontist as early as 7 or even earlier if you notice any signs of problems with their gums or teeth. At that age, they will have some of their permanent teeth and it will be possible for the orthodontist to pick up on and prevent future problems. Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, believe that every single child deserves a healthy and beautiful smile and are committed in every way to helping you make this possible for your child. The first and most important part of the process is you making the call because, without your help, your child may face a future of dental issues that may plague them into adulthood.

Don’t Let Dental Problems Affect Your Child’s Eating, Sleeping, and School Focus

Experienced Family Orthodontist in Miami – Her teacher noticed it first. A third-grader in Miami didn’t seem to be eating much at lunch. She only nibbled at her crackers at snack-time. She seemed tired during class and stopped raising her hand with the right answers during her favorite subject. What was wrong? When the teacher spoke to her about it, the girl said that her teeth were bothering her. They made it hard to chew, and the uncomfortable crowding of her teeth and the jaw pain from an uneven bite meant she couldn’t sleep so well either.

Her mom decided to fix it. The girl’s teeth needed attention from an experienced family orthodontist in Miami. With the right early orthodontic treatment, the girl’s dental issues could be fixed. With no more crowding, bite problems or tooth pain, she’ll be able to eat her healthy meals and snacks, get a good night’s rest, and stay sharp and focused at school.

Dental problems may be causing trouble for your child too. Since kids need to eat nutritious, balanced diets and get plenty of restful sleep in order to grow, any dental abnormalities that can cause difficulty with these needs should be corrected. Since classroom learning and playtime are important to a child’s development, bothersome dental issues should be taken care of as soon as possible. Don’t let problems with your child’s teeth and bite prevent them from becoming their best – get the right orthodontic treatment for your child’s needs at the family-friendly offices of Yazji Orthodontics.
