Top Rated Miami Orthodontist Dr. Carmen Briceño Crespi
Probably on of the top question we get at Lakes Orthodontics is – How Much Do Braces Cost in Miami? While the cost of braces in Miami may fluctuate between practices, choosing an orthodontist based only on price is not only dangerous but can end up costing patients more money, time and aggravation! It is always important to understand treatment details such as the time and cost of an average procedure but please be careful not to fall victim to outrageous “low-cost” claims of some of these ads.
That being said before you go search for “cheap braces in Miami” let us give you some facts about getting braces for you and your kids.
Fact #1 – While all orthodontists are dentist, not all dentist are an orthodontist. Study wise it takes almost twice as long to become an orthodontist than a general dentist. Those orthodontists, who become board certified have to endure an even longer period of specialized training. Therefore if you want the best for you and your family then make sure that Doctor that is providing you with your braces or Invisalign is a board certified orthodontist which can be easily verified at https://www.americanboardortho.com/portal/public/
Fact #2 – It is irresponsible to advertise a fixed cost for braces, Invisalign and orthodontic services in general without a consultation. No two orthodontic cases are exactly the same. Therefore it is extremely difficult, if not impossible to estimate the treatment details: cost, time of treatment, types of options available, etc. with any level of accuracy. These treatment features are paramount to understand, and the details should be discussed in a consultation with a qualified orthodontist. 90% of the time the fine print on the ad reads: “starting from” and almost 100% of the time it ends up ballooning to a substantial amount higher than what is being advertised. Don’t be fooled by cheap advertising!
Fact #3 – An inexperienced dentist can cause permanent damage to your teeth. It is not rare to have patients walk into our office after having had braces on their teeth for 3-5years and experienced no positive result. This is outright irresponsible, and a telltale sign of an inexperienced practitioner. Some of these patients may eventually lose some teeth due to permanent damage to the roots or have discoloration of their teeth. As previously stated, orthodontics is a specialty requiring additional years of training after becoming a dentist and not something you can learn on YouTube or in a weekend seminar at a convention.
The moral of the story is one that you have read about and seen on TV repeatedly. Time after time people continue to fall victims to false advertising and end up paying 2 to 3 times more than what was promised in an ad or commercial. The truth is that regardless of what anyone advertises in a commercial or on a flyer if something sounds too good to be true then it probably is. As life continues to teach us, in the end, you get what you pay for. So stop looking for magical offers or Groupon’s that advertise ridiculous things like a Ferrari for $500. Instead, make your decisions on the things that matter most such as experience, quality, and proven results. At Lakes Orthodontics we pride ourselves in being 100% family owned and operated with 5-star reviews from our satisfied patients. We are N.W. Miami Dade’s only board certified orthodontic specialist with 1000’s of cases of proven experience. So beware of false advertising and empty promises and remember that if you are looking for cheap braces in Miami get ready to pay more in the long run.
