Are you a candy lover? We thought so! Most children love candy. Halloween can be a lot of fun for adults and children but it’s important to consider the impact on your teeth during this season, particularly when you’re wearing braces and orthodontic appliances.

Would you like to know how to avoid a sticky situation this Halloween? Then continue reading our orthodontic tips.
Let sticky foods RIP. If it is hard, sticky, chewy, or crunchy, stay away!
Choose “Spooktacularly” Soft Foods. Choose soft chocolate, peanut butter, or other melt-in-your-mouth varieties.
Say Boo to Hard Foods. Avoid hard shell candies, nuts, hard tortillas chips, and popcorn.
Dare to Take Extra Care. Decide to make good choices before Halloween and brush/floss your teeth after eating any sugary treats.
Try not to suck or chew lollypops for a long time. This will help prevent the sugar and acid ‘sitting’ on your teeth.
Remember to brush and floss.
Wait till you get home to eat your candy. It’s better to have an adult personally check your sweets before you have them.
If you don’t have the chance to brush, at least rinse your mouth with water after eating candies
It does not matter if you’re wearing traditional braces/metal braces, ceramic braces, lingual braces, or WildSmile braces, treat your braces right and get some extra Smile Rewards this season! To check how many points you have on your card, you can click here.
We also want to share with you some safety tips for the month of October.
See and be seen
Please be safe out there and stay well lit. Apply reflective tape to your costume, carry a flashlight or a glow stick. Keep your way lit and ensure you’re seen by drivers on the road.
Pick your costume carefully
Will you be wearing a mask? Make sure you can see where you’re going. Masks and costumes shouldn’t block vision.
Be a good pedestrian
Always cross at street corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks. Look both ways before crossing.
Have a safe and happy Halloween from all of us at Dr. Yazji Orthodontics!

Early Orthodontic Treatment in Plantation
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:
To prevent or correct overcrowding of teeth and prevent future oral problems
To correct the bite so the front and back teeth are aligned properly
To reduce the damage to prominent teeth to prevent further damage
To detect and/or treat other health problems like a cleft lip and palate or sleep apnea
To improve appearance and self-esteem
To give children their best smiles!
The AAO (American Association of Orthodontists) 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 believes that every single child deserves a healthy and beautiful smile and is 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.

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.
Experienced Family Orthodontist in Miami
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.
At the South Florida offices of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, there are several treatment options that can help your child get a straight, healthy smile.

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month! Now is the perfect time to go over dental care tips with your child and set up a good dental hygiene routine for the rest of the year. You and your child can learn about the importance of a healthy smile, courtesy of Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics.
Helping your child keep their teeth, gums, and mouth healthy is always a good idea, and proper dental care has lifelong health benefits. Good dental hygiene habits that are learned in childhood can stay with your child throughout their life. So, let’s take a look at some dental health dos and don’ts that you can go over with your child in Miami and South Florida.
DO encourage your child to brush their teeth twice a day, and to clean between their teeth once a day using dental floss or a water irrigator. By brushing twice daily and cleaning between their teeth regularly, your child is preventing plaque and bacteria from building up on their teeth and reducing their risk of developing dental cavities. Fewer cavities (and fewer fillings needed) really is something to smile about!
DON’T brush for too short a time. Your child may be in a hurry to rinse and go, but you should make sure that they’re brushing for at least two minutes each time they brush their teeth, as recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA). Egg timers, sand timers, and stopwatches can be used to make brushing for the full two minutes fun for your son or daughter in Miami.
DO ensure that your child has a properly-fitted mouthguard if they play sports. When playing contact sports, wearing a mouthguard helps to protect teeth from becoming damaged, loosened, or being knocked out. At Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics in Weston, Brickell, and Miami, your athlete under the age of twelve can get a free mouthguard that’s custom-fit for their teeth.
DON’T forget about healthy snacks. Your kids may want to hit the concession stand and vending machines after practice, but a healthy diet, including a variety of healthy snacks, is important for dental health. The ADA recommends eating “a healthy diet that limits sugary beverages and snacks.”
DO correct any orthodontic issues your child may have, like crooked teeth, excessive crowding, or bite issues. These orthodontic problems can make it harder to keep teeth fully clean, can exert unnecessary pressure on surrounding teeth, and can make chewing and biting uncomfortably. Getting a straight smile can solve these problems. Dr. Maria Yazji, DDS — the best orthodontist for children in Weston, Florida — can help you and your child find the right orthodontic treatment option. WildSmiles Braces for Kids and Early Orthodontic Treatment from Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics are two great options for kids who need braces in South Florida.
DON’T wait too long to treat your child’s orthodontic problems. Braces can correct common dental alignment issues and help your child get a healthier smile. Make an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Yazji to learn more about the orthodontic services that can get your child or other family members straight smiles. Good dental health habits and teeth that are straightened with braces for kids from Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics in Weston, Florida can help your child have a healthy and happy smile.

From the time your child’s first tooth emerges, promoting healthy oral care is very important. Teaching children to brush and floss is a habit that should be taught from an early age. Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics understands the importance of healthy dental habits, however, she also understands that sometimes even the healthiest of habits can’t fix everything. Sometimes, medical intervention is needed even you’re your child is still growing. Luckily, Yazji Orthodontics offers a few different services depending on your wants and the needs of your child.

If your child has already experienced an injury or if you have worries about their jaw/tooth development, Yazji Orthodontics also offers early orthodontic treatment for children. There are two phases when addressing early orthodontic intervention. Phase one targets healthy development. This phase of the treatment process focuses on the bone structure as your child continues to develop. The phase begins before your child’s adult teeth have emerged. The goal of phase one is to allow the beautiful, natural emergence of your child’s adult teeth. The second phase of the treatment addresses all the issues following the emergence of your child’s adult teeth. Phase two commonly involves braces depending on each child’s specific needs. Although some kids may be nervous about the idea of braces, Yazji Orthodontics offers many different and unique options for you and your child to choose from such as WildSmile and Invisalign!
