The Miami team at Dr. Yazji Orthodontics understands how hectic college life can be. Running from class to class, studying all night at the library, Greek Life, sports, clubs, meetings with advisors and professors, part-time jobs and the lack of sleep make it difficult to fit in orthodontic appointments. And yet, with college graduation and career opportunities on the horizon, many students realize they’ll have an edge if they can get their smile in tip-top shape before their job interviews begin.

Although there has been plentiful research proving that a nice smile is a beneficial attribute, most people don’t need a scientific study to know that smiling feels good and makes others warm up to them more quickly. Smiling creates stronger connections on and off campus which can lead to greater confidence, productivity, teamwork and school and career success. But a great smile has many other benefits that can help busy students feel their best. Here are just a few:

  1. People who smile are frequently labeled as more attractive.
  2. Smiling releases endorphins – the feel-good hormones, which makes people feel happier.
  3. Smiling reduces stress which is good news for college students who are under a lot of pressure to make good grades.
  4. Smiling is good for your overall health because it can lower your heart rate.
  5. Smiling is contagious. Smiley people tend to bring out the best in those around them and are more fun to be around.
  6. Smiling can improve your mood and lessen depressive symptoms.

So, what if your smile is not very attractive? Perhaps you’ve been hiding an overbite or large gaps between your teeth or maybe some of your teeth grew in crooked and overcrowding is an issue. Some college students feel they’ve missed their chance to get braces because many of their childhood friends finished their orthodontic treatment way back in middle school. The good news for college students is that it’s never too late to look your best. In fact, there are better options and advances in orthodontic treatment now more so than ever before, and age is definitely not an obstacle!

There are several options for creating great smiles, but two popular orthodontic treatments for college students are Invisalign Clear Aligners and Lingual Braces.

Invisalign clear aligners are the most popular choice for on-the-go college students in Miami who want a straighter and more pleasing smile. These custom-fit aligners let you watch your smile as it transforms from week to week. The clear aligners can be removed intermittently for cleaning, eating or for a special occasion or photo op, and they are virtually invisible when worn. Because there are no metal wires and brackets to scratch or break, emergency office visits are all but eliminated. If you do have a quick question or concern about your Invisalign treatment, you can use your smartphone to check in with Dr. Yazji right from your dorm room or anywhere else using the Anywhere Orthodontics Remote App for Invisalign patients. A remote Invisalign appointment is a real time-saver because it helps patients stay on track with their Invisalign progress, and with fewer in-office visits. As for getting the best Invisalign treatment possible, it doesn’t get any better than Dr. Maria Yazji, who’s been named an Invisalign Super Elite Premier Provider, placing her in the top 1% of Invisalign doctors in North America. She’s the best choice for Miami college students who want to achieve an amazing Invisalign smile.

Lingual Braces are another option for young adults who want a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment to improve their teeth and smile. Lingual braces are custom- fitted and affixed to the backside of the teeth where they can’t be seen. They are generally used to correct problems like:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Rotated teeth

College students all over Miami and South Florida choose Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics because they want the most up-to-date orthodontic treatment options when it comes to perfecting their smile. Digital scanning, remote Invisalign appointments from a smartphone, a megawatt smile and a tech-savvy orthodontics team that understands the time and budget constraints of college students, is exactly what today’s young people are looking for when choosing an orthodontist. At Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, they’ve met their match!
