Affordable Braces and Invisalign

We know that you have a lot of choices and questions when looking for braces for yourself or your child.   ​That’s why we’d like to take a moment to help you understand what you should consider when looking for an orthodontist.

​Getting braces for yourself or your child is a significant commitment.  The process can ​mean regular visits and adjustments over a 12 to 36 month period.  Not only that, but braces can change the bite, jaw alignment, and even the shape of your face.  Add to that the sticker price and most patients shop around just looking for the cheapest deal.

Now before we go any further, we’d like to let you know that we offer many benefits to our orthodontic patients, beginning with a free initial consultation, discounted cleanings during your treatment, and a set contract price … to mention a few.  For our uninsured patients, we also offer incentives and payment plans to help make braces affordable.

And if you have a treatment plan from another provider, we encourage you to give us a call to see if we can beat it.  CALL:  773-481-2200

But more importantly, we’d like you to ​point out that when selecting an orthodontist there are issues that transcend​ price alone.

What we would like you to consider is that – braces can radically transform your or your child’s mouth, bite, and even face.  We advise that you never just base your decision on price alone – but instead consider wh​​ich provider will deliver the best outcomes over the long run.


What ​Should You Look for When Considering an Orthodontist?

Beyond finding an orthodontist with whom you feel comfortable, there are two factors that can help you differentiate between practitioners.


How experienced is the orthodontist ​you’re considering?  ​Are they board certified?

How many years have they been practicing? How many patients have they treated? Have they seen the effects of their work play out over hundreds and thousands of patients?  And, have they treated other patients who have similar issues and desired outcomes?

Something often overlooked by patients is:  is the orthodontist they are considering board certified.

​Becoming American Board of Orthodontics certified is reserved for an elite few orthodontists who have ​voluntarily
pursued 3 more years of rigorous ​education ​and competitive residency ​specifically in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics ​.   ​​​Less than 1 in 3 orthodontists pursue this personal and professional commitment because of the additional time, work, and investment that it demands.

​Board certified orthodontists are truly the top of the crop.  They are uniquely qualified to treat ​the full range of orthodontic cases in both children and adults.

Braces FAQs

How Much Do Braces Cost?

The cost varies depending on the current state of your teeth and the type of braces you choose, with prices starting around $198/month.   Our dentist will evaluate your teeth and make the best recommendations for your case and give you a very competitive cost.  We’re here to work with you.  

What Types of Braces Do We Offer?

We offer both Invisalign and traditional metal braces.  We are a top Invisalign Provider and have a Board-Certified Orthodontist, so we can handle every case from the simplest to the most complex.

What are the Types of Braces?

Metal braces (traditional braces): These are the braces that come to mind traditionally. They are made up of metal wires and brackets, smaller then earlier metal versions. More recently, the metal wires can be activated by your body’s heat thereby moving the teeth faster and with less pain than in the past. The metal braces are the most affordable braces. Most parents opt for metal braces because they get the job done for the least amount of investment.

Ceramic braces:  Ceramic braces use the same bracket and wire structure of metal braces, except they’re made of ceramic in clear of colors that match the teeth, thereby seeming almost invisible. These braces are more expensive than traditional metal braces, but like metal braces move the teeth faster than the Invisalign option. The only downside of the ceramic braces are that they can get discolored if they’re not cared for properly.

Lingual braces:
Lingual braces are essentially metal braces placed behind the teeth. The benefit of these braces is that they are practically invisible. The downside is that they can be more uncomfortable than the front adhered
braces, more expensive, and more difficult to align. Lingual braces are not appropriate for severe cases.

Invisalign:Sometimes called “clear braces,” Invisalign is the least intrusive, but most costly ‘braces’ option. It consists of a range (usually 18-30) custom plastic aligners that are replaced every two weeks. Invisalign allows wearers to eat and drink whatever they want, and they’re nearly
invisible. They are the most expensive option and not appropriate for severe cases. While invisalign can take longer to achieve results in some cases, many of our patients swear by them.

How Long Do I Need to Wear Braces?

On average patients wear braces for 18-24 months. Your doctor will advise you on the expected time for your individual case, which takes into account your individual situation and the braces you select.
