How much do braces cost?

At Fishbein Orthodontics, we don't believe that finances should prevent you from having a beautiful smile.  That is why we offer a variety of payment plan options including low/no down payment, low monthly payments, and interest free financing.

What kind of braces do you offer?

At Fishbein Orthodontics, we have traditional metal braces, clear ceramic braces, incognito (behind the teeth) braces, and Invisalign.  We are the leading provider of Invisalign and Incognito in the area.

Do braces hurt?

At our office, we make your braces experience as comfortable as possible.  Although braces do take some getting used to, we find that our patients adjust within 1-2 days after getting their braces, and have a great experience at our office.

How long do braces take?

Every case is different.  Treatment can last anywhere from 6 months to 26 months, depending on your case.  We will let you know the estimated time it will take to complete your orthodontic treatment at your complimentary consultation.

Can I have all my appointments after school?


Fishbein Orthodontics offer a number of appointment times M-F 8am-5pm to accommodate for your busy schedule.

Can I play sports while in braces?


We also offer mouth guards to wear over the braces while playing sports.  Mouth guards protect your teeth and the braces during physical activity and our doctor recommends wearing them.

How do I get started?

Simply call our office at 850-477-1089 M-F 8am-5pm and schedule your complimentary consultation.  At that appointment we will give you an estimated time of treatment and an exact fee quote.
