Do you have teeth that are crooked? Do you have protruding teeth or a bite problem?
A Hilliard Invisalign® provider and Clear Correct® provider, Dr. Siddhi Patel offers convenient and discreet short term orthodontic treatment using clear aligners to address a wide range of mild to moderate concerns. Clear aligners can be effective for teen and adult patients who would like to improve the appearance, function, and comfort of their smile without the embarrassment of metal braces. Dr. Patel will recommend the best aligner system for your overall needs, goals and budget after your initial exam and consultation.
What Can Invisalign and Clear Correct Treat?
Clear aligners can be used to straighten teeth, change the alignment for an improved bite or address cosmetic concerns. Common reasons for choosing Invisalign include:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowding of teeth
- Gaps between teeth
Dr. Patel provides Invisalign treatment on a case by case basis and will meet with you to determine if this option is the solution for your needs.
Invisalign: how does it work?
Invisalign uses a custom set of aligners to gently reposition the teeth according to the treatment plan designed by Dr. Patel using CAD/CAM software.
The process begins with digital impressions and a discussion of your cosmetic goals. Your personalized treatment plan will address both aesthetic desires and any dental health concerns affecting the comfort and function of your smile.
The custom aligners will be created in a lab and sent to our office. Once they are complete we will schedule a visit for the initial placement of the first set. You will wear the aligners 22 hours each day, removing them as needed for enjoying your favorite foods and brushing and flossing your teeth. We will provide care instructions for keeping the aligners clean and your smile healthy during treatment.
Periodic checkup visits will be scheduled to monitor your progress and ensure the best possible outcome.
Am I a candidate for Invisalign or Clear Correct?
Both of these clear aligner systems can be recommended for the majority of patients. Dr. Patel will meet with you to perform a dental exam before discussing the most suitable treatment options for your orthodontic needs.
How long is treatment with Invisalign?
The length of your treatment will depend on the severity of your concerns and the number of aligners necessary to achieve your goals. Dr. Patel will present treatment goals and estimated treatment time after your initial consultation and exam.
Is Invisalign more expensive than metal braces?
In most cases, the cost of treatment with a clear aligner system such as Invisalign or Clear Correct is comparable or less expensive than treatment costs associated with traditional braces. Dr. Patel will present treatment costs for your consideration after your consultation.
