I am a college student who can afford Invisalign and am debating if I even need it or not.


Yes, going for Invisalign is a good idea. Patients using Invisalign wear a custom-made series of clear plastic aligners over their teeth that they change every two weeks, which gently shift teeth into place, based on the exact movements their orthodontist plans out. With traditional braces, brackets made of metal or ceramic are attached to each tooth with bonding material, and the thin metal arch wire that runs from bracket to bracket is tightened to put pressure on the teeth so they gradually move according to the treatment plan.  

In most cases, an experienced orthodontist can achieve the same results using both traditional braces and Invisalign, so the decision of which method to use is usually a personal preference.

I am looking for affordable braces in Fort Lauderdale. How much do Invisalign braces cost?


Invisalign are usually more expensive than traditional braces (about $500 more) and requires longer treatment time. Each alternative has its advantage and disadvantage though. It depends on how much correction you need really. I was going to get it but my overbite couldn't be corrected with it so I have regular braces. Honestly, braces aren't all that bad, once I got used to them they just became part of my body almost. Visit an orthodontist instead of a dentist, in my opinion you will get a better assessment.

Only your doctor can determine the actual cost based on your specific needs and will work with you to customize your individual plan. Other factors contributing to your cost may include the complexity of your individual needs, how long you are in treatment, where you live, your doctor’s experience level, your orthodontic insurance coverage, and additional factors determined by your orthodontist or dentist.

How Does Orthodontic Treatment Work?


Many different types of appliances, both fixed and removable, are used to help move teeth, retrain muscles and affect the growth of the jaws. These appliances work by placing gentle pressure on the teeth and jaws. The severity of your problem will determine which orthodontic approach is likely to be the most effective.  Fixed appliances include: Braces — the most common fixed appliances, braces consist of bands, wires and/or brackets.  Bands are fixed around the teeth or tooth and used as anchors for the appliance, while brackets are most often bonded to the front of the tooth.

How do I Know if I Need Orthodontics?


Only your dentist or orthodontist can determine whether you can benefit from orthodontics. Based on diagnostic tools that include a full medical and dental health history, a clinical exam, plaster models of your teeth, and special X-rays and photographs, an orthodontist or dentist can decide whether orthodontics are recommended, and develop a treatment plan that's right for you.If you have any of the following, you may be a candidate for orthodontic treatment: Overbite, sometimes called "buck teeth" — where the upper front teeth lie too far forward (stick out) over the lower teeth Underbite — a "bulldog" appearance where the lower teeth are too far forward or the upper teeth too far back Crossbite — when the upper teeth do not come down slightly in front of the lower teeth when biting together normally Open bite — space between the biting surfaces of the front and/or side teeth when the back teeth bite together Misplaced midline— when the center of your upper front teeth does not line up with the center of your lower front teeth Spacing — gaps, or spaces, between the teeth as a result of missing teeth or teeth that do not "fill up" the mouth Crowding — when there are too many teeth for the dental ridge to accommodate

How will Invisalign® impact my life?


Unlike wearing traditional braces, Invisalign® won’t make a major impact on your quality of life. Since the aligners are clear, it won’t impact your appearance. Additionally, since they only need to be worn for 22 hours a day, they will not interfere with eating. This is a huge advantage because you can eat your favorite plate of ribs, go out for a romantic date, or eat a caramel apple without worrying about something becoming stuck in your teeth or a wire being pulled out of place. This time also allows you to take the aligner out when having an important conversation or making a presentation at work. Overall, this is a convenient way to straighten your teeth and provides the maximum level of flexibility.

Some people are concerned about whether or not wearing an aligner will impact their speech. Most of our Fort Lauderdale patients tell us that they have to get used to wearing aligners after the first couple of days. Sometimes, patients have a slight lisp which goes away once they become used to speaking while wearing them. This is standard with any orthodontic procedure but fortunately; most people can speak normally within a couple of days.
