What are the benefits of short-term orthodontics options?
Traditional orthodontic solutions are typically associated with discomfort and inconvenience. In contrast, modern short-term orthodontics options are flexible, convenient, and fast. The right solution for you depends on your needs and the outcome you desire. In any case, Dr. Patel provides the right transformative solutions for you.
Traditionally, orthodontics is seen to come with a variety of short-comings:
Unending visits to the dental office for adjustments
Ugly metal wires that poke and scratch
Unsightly metal brackets
2-year commitment, sometimes longer
Discomfort and inconvenience
In reality, traditional braces can potentially be your ideal solution. Especially if you are in need of dramatic tooth alignment or are on a tight budget. However, most clients don’t need or want these unsightly brackets.
In that case, Dr. Patel provides short-term orthodontic solutions which provide:
Faster treatment times and a shorter commitment
Fewer adjustment appointments
Better aesthetics during treatment
More comfortable adjustments and hardware
Convenience through a variety of treatment solutions
At our office, not only can you achieve the results you desire, but also you can feel more comfortable. If you’ve never been happy with your smile, orthodontic treatment can boost your self-confidence. Your treatment can also reduce pain and complications caused by crowded and misaligned teeth. No matter your need, we provide the orthodontic options to help get the job done.
If you’re looking for orthodontic care minus the inconvenience of traditional braces, then please consider short-term orthodontics.

What are my short-term orthodontics options?
Our team offers a variety of short-term orthodontic solutions. Each one is subsequently designed with convenience and comfort in mind. We can help you determine which of these solutions will work best for your specific circumstance.
Six Month Smiles®
This system is designed to correct only the teeth visible when you smile. A solution with a short treatment length, Six Month Smiles® offers convenient cosmetic improvement. During your treatment, we even use discreet, clear ceramic brackets and tooth-colored wires.
Invisalign® Clear Braces
Our office is a Certified Invisalign® Provider. Invisalign® is comprised of a series of clear plastic aligner trays that shift your teeth gradually into place over time. The aligners are inherently comfortable and easy to use. They also offer great aesthetic appeal, as they are nearly invisible to the naked eye. Invisalign® works to align your whole mouth but is not preferable for complicated orthodontic issues or major bite problems.
These braces use a computer-guided system to move your teeth into alignment as quickly as possible. Because everyone’s teeth are misaligned differently, one-size-fits-all braces often aren’t the most efficient solution.
Lingual braces are specially designed to not draw attention to your smile during orthodontic treatment. They attach to the backside of your teeth, making them impossible to see when you smile. We are even trained in the Damon System. This system uses a more comfortable type of bracket that does not require the use of a ligature.
Social 6 Braces
These braces straighten only the teeth most visible when you smile. The brackets also attach to the back of your teeth, and so are invisible when you smile. It provides shorter treatment times, fewer visits to the office, and a beautiful, metal-free appearance.
