Get Early Orthodontic Treatment for Your Child in North Miami Beach

Get Early Orthodontic Treatment – How early can a child get braces? If you are wondering about early orthodontic treatment for one or more of your children in North Miami Beach, Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics has answers for you. How soon a child should get braces depends on the orthodontic work they will need. Orthodontic treatment is done to align teeth and correct crossbites, overbites, crowding, and other dental alignment problems.

A child may have signs of dental problems, such as:

  • Losing baby teeth early
  • Difficulty with speaking and articulation
  • Biting and chewing trouble
  • Grinding or clenching teeth

While children develop at different paces, there are markers of pediatric development that should be reached by certain ages. Trouble speaking may resolve as a child’s palate develops, or it may indicate the need for orthodontic intervention. Trouble chewing may occur in a young child as they are introduced to new foods, but if it is ongoing, it may be due to a misaligned bite or another dental issue. Early evaluation in North Miami Beach eliminates uncertainty – you can find out if your child has dental problems that require early treatment, or if you can wait a few years before getting them braces.

The American Association of Orthodontics suggests that you schedule an evaluation with an orthodontist as soon as you seen any orthodontic problems in your child, no later than age 7. By that age, a child should have lost some of their baby teeth and have their first permanent molars and incisors, so the evaluation will be effective.

Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics provides early orthodontic treatment for children in North Miami Beach. The early treatment we provide to correct a child’s dental bite and tooth alignment consist of 2 phases:

  1. Phase One — This treatment starts before all of the permanent teeth have come in. This phase of early orthodontic treatment creates the best conditions for the development of your child’s jaw and bite. During this phase, a comprehensive record of dental x-rays and dental models is created for future reference. If any baby teeth have to be removed to accommodate your child’s permanent teeth, they are removed at this point.
  2. Phase Two – Treatment begins once your child has all of their permanent teeth. This phase of treatment usually consists of full upper and lower braces, which will be worn for approximately 24 months. These braces align the teeth and create a proper bite.

If your child has signs of orthodontic issues, don’t wait to get the treatment in North Miami Beach. Dr. Maria Yazji offers several financing options so you can get your children the treatment they need for a lifetime of healthy smiles.
