Ortho Screenings

Orthodontics Screening In Plantation, Fl

A variety of tooth and jaw issues open up the door to orthodontics in a growing child. Dr. Rizvi may point out that your child’s baby teeth appear crowded, or the relationship between the jaws isn’t ideal. While not generally the time for treatment, it may help you prepare for the possibility of future corrective care. As permanent teeth start to appear, usually around age 6, Dr. Rizvi monitors the process further and helps you decide if early orthodontic treatment makes sense.

Although the majority of cases involve teenagers, braces can play a role for some kids in their earlier years. Since permanent teeth are typically larger than baby teeth, space may need to be opened with the gentle force of braces. This allows teeth to move into place properly, helping avoid more extensive treatment later.

A narrow jaw or a large overbite may create a similar dilemma. Guiding jaw growth while your child’s developing can make a tremendous difference in the long-term outcome. Once the growth stops in teen years, the only corrective measure often involves surgery…always a good scenario to avoid when possible.

The Usual Track

Many youngsters benefit the most from orthodontics after baby teeth fall out and permanent teeth move into place. This classic case may start in the early teen years, leaving a nicely aligned and highly functional set of teeth going into adulthood. The length of time spent wired-up can vary, but average treatment time often falls around two years.

A variety of methods allow orthodontic treatment to solve nearly every possible scenario that appears, but successful treatment relies on good patient compliance. Wearing elastic bands consistently, keeping follow-up appointments for adjustments, and practicing outstanding home care can lead to a positive outcome. This commitment involves frequent preventive visits with your hygienist as well, a strategy that helps avoid cavities around brackets. The My Dentist For Life® team specializes in helping our orthodontic patients enjoy a successful outcome: a gorgeous, healthy smile.

What a wonderful group of professionals! The office is fully equipped with advance technology. The entire staff are professional, efficient, personable, very kind and friendly. It made me felt comfortable and at ease. Everyone is very warm and welcoming. Karen is super kind and caring, explaining during the the cleaning process - super gentle and pain free. . Dr. Rizvi is really friendly. She took her time to exam, review and explaining in detail when going through 3D with me and just in time a treatment list in detail along with what insurance covers/not cover. They orchestrate the procedure really well - making the visit an extra outstanding and special. Excellent team of doctor and staff. I just recommended my family member for their upcoming visit.

Wonderful group of professionals! The entire staff are professional, efficient, personable, and friendly. I felt more comfortable than I ever have at a dentist’s office. Everyone is very warm and welcoming. Lisandra and Karen made me feel at ease as they examined and cleaned my teeth. They did such a thorough and amazing job cleaning my teeth and taking care of my gums during each visit. I’m 9 months pregnant and the doctor and staff did an outstanding job making each cleaning and procedure as pain and stress free as possible. They were extremely knowledgeable on what they could or couldn’t do as well. The office manager Roxie made sure to explain in detail what our insurance covered (after finding out my husbands insurance didn’t cover the first cleaning, she still graciously waived the fee). Roxie was very informative when explaining the breakdown of costs of each visit, and other options that we could consider when coordinating our treatments to meet our financial and medical needs. Looking forward to my next visit.

Had a cleaning this morning with Giselle. She is a great, and I think our Spanglish works well to communicate with each other. Haha. I had a wonderful experience, and I also thought, my kid will like their cleaning here because of My Dentist for Life’s new tool. Great technology, no pain and quick!
