Affordable braces for adults in Miami Fl

Braces for Adults Miami. Fl

Thinking of getting braces? If you think teens have excuses for not wearing braces, then you should speak to an adult! At Lakes Orthodontics we believe that it is never too late to smile with confidence. Many adults had treatment as children and we hope that you consider us if you have made the decision to finally get the perfect smile you always dreamed of. Braces for adults have come a long way. Metal braces are no longer the only option. Today we have a wide range of appliances design to cater to a broad range of lifestyles.

Don’t think you’re alone! Many of our adult patients are now getting braces because unlike their parents they can now afford it. Not only that but today braces are covered by many different types of health insurances.

The two most common excuses are:

Excuse 1: “Braces are for kids, I’m a grown up and I would look ridiculous with a mouth full of metal!”

Although this may have been the case in years past did you know that there are more adults in orthodontic treatment now than ever before? There are so many options now for adults to improve their smile that are less noticeable than traditional metal braces such as Invisalign and clear braces. Plus, what is worse, going through a treatment that is barely noticeable with Invisalign or clear braces and ending up with a beautiful smile. Or, would you rather be embarrassed every single day of your life with a smile that you are not happy to show?

Excuse 2: “I don’t have time to go to my appointments.”

Adults live in a very busy world: wake up early, get to work, exercise, and let’s not forget the kids! Who has time to sit in a Dr.’s office for hours waiting for their appointment? At Lakes Orthodontics, we understand your busy lifestyle and we cater to busy professionals:

  • Modern patient communication: Our patient communication includes text message and email appointment confirmations to make it easy to stay on top of your appointments.
  • Convenient hours: We have a wide variety of hours to help fit your schedule including Saturday appointments.
  • You are seen on time: Our patient’s average waiting time in our reception area is under 10 minutes. If you are on time, we should be too!

Choosing the best orthodontist Miami!

Orthodontist in Indian Creek, Fl.

What should I look for in order to pick the best orthodontist for my kid or myself? After you understand the main differences between a general dentist and an orthodontist, the next logical questions should be: How do I choose the best orthodontist?

Education and Expertise (Don’t be fooled by dentists that are not truly orthodontists):

First, make sure the doctor is an orthodontist and not a general dentist. This distinction should be clear when you are looking up the dentist name and credentials on the web.  If you look up the dentist, and it says that they are a general dentist, cosmetic dentist, or any other type of dentist that is not an Orthodontist and they are not the right type of doctor for your specific needs.

Make sure your orthodontist is board certified:

When choosing your orthodontist, make sure that they are board certified by the ABO (American Board of Orthodontics), which will ensure that the orthodontist that you are choosing has completed the highest level of education and training.  Make sure to do this as only 1 in 3 orthodontists is certified.  An easy way to check if your orthodontist is board certified is to go to the orthodontist locator tool on the ABO website: www.americanboardortho.com

Referrals, testimonials, and research:

Nothing gives us more confidence than to know what other people that we know and trust have to say about a particular experience.  Family, friends, co-workers and online blogs and ratings should give you some direction as to what orthodontists you should visit.  Ask your general dentist who they recommend or better yet, who they take their kids to for the best Miami orthodontic treatment.

Location and convenience of availability:

The length of an orthodontic treatment typically lasts anywhere from 12 to 24 months.  Therefore, try to find an office that has a convenient location and appointment times that fit your busy lifestyle. Schedule a consultation with the orthodontists that meet your criteria. Visit the office of any orthodontist that you are considering for treatment.

Evaluate several factors when performing your research such as:

Was the staff friendly and did they answer your questions?  What is your impression of the office (hygiene), staff, technology, etc.?  Did you enjoy your interaction with the orthodontist and their medical staff?Make sure that you are comfortable in the orthodontist’s office and that you feel 100% confident in your choice.  You will be visiting this office for the next 12-24 months, so you definitely want to choose wisely!
