Searching for Orthodontic Care for Kids and Adults in or near Miami, Florida?
For many years, it was thought that braces were only for children. Now, more adults are beginning to wear braces to correct the problems from childhood. Both adults and children can get braces to correct their crooked teeth. Now that dental care has progressed so greatly, there are several different options which are less obvious and therefore more tempting to adults. Many of these, such as clear braces, colorful braces as well as Invisalign are offered by Dr. Carmen Briceño Crespi at her Lakes Orthodontics Office in Miami . There are studies that show how these more pleasing options, have caused an increase in adults who are willing to get braces.
When considering Orthodontic Treatment in Miami, Fl choose a dentist who is board certified, like Dr. Carmen Briceño Crespi. She is certified by the American Board of Orthodontics and belongs to the American Association of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, and the Florida Dental Association. Dr. Crespi is one of the top rated Orthodontist in Doral FL.
Braces are a commitment. Braces can improve your oral health if your teeth are crooked or protrude to the degree that it interrupts the way you eat, breathe or even close your mouth. Uneven teeth can put strain on the jaw muscles and increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Along with the health benefits of having braces, your confidence is boosted with a more attractive smile. Unfortunately, some people are born with traits that cause their bite to be misaligned; others end up with crooked teeth because of thumb-sucking or from overuse of a pacifier. Bear in mind that a basic visit to your family dentist will not repair crooked teeth. This is a problem that must be referred to an orthodontist.

Orthodontics Insurance Coverage
Will my insurance cover the cost of my braces or Invisalign? Insurance can be a very overwhelming subject for most people to understand. After all, there are so many details that go into deciding if your insurance will actually cover the cost of your braces or Invisalign treatment. Some of the most frequently confused topics are HMO vs. PPO, deductibles, age limits, annual benefit vs. lifetime benefit, medically necessary vs. cosmetic, etc…
At Lakes Orthodontics we understand that dental insurance can often time be confusing which is why we have a highly trained professional staff that is dedicated to helping you understand your dental insurance benefits. We want to help you become aware of some of the basic concepts that will determine your insurance eligibility.
Top 10 questions and considerations regarding insurance for your braces or Invisalign:
- What type of treatment are you looking to have: braces, Invisalign, etc.
- How long is your procedure (2 months, 6 months, 2 years, etc.)?
- What is the cause of the treatment (medically necessary due to pain, a traumatic injury, or something considered cosmetic)?
- Is your insurance a PPO or an HMO?
- Does it specifically state that your insurance has an orthodontic benefit?
- Is there an orthodontic benefit for the policyholder as well as dependents?
- Are there any age limits on your policy?
- Will the policy cover you if you are already in treatment?
- What if you already had orthodontic treatment before as a child?
- What happens if you change jobs/insurance in the middle of treatment?
My point here is that dental insurance can be very complex, and you should always consult with your insurance professional in order to review your benefits and coverage. Lakes Orthodontics not only accepts most major dental PPO plans but our staff reviews your insurance plan with you at the initial consultation and makes sure that they explain your details and help you get the maximum benefit from your insurance carrier.
