POWELL, OH – A leading Powell dental office can now correct crooked teeth in as little as a few months without fixed brackets, wires or unsightly appliances.
Dr. Neal Patel, who operates Infinite Smiles, has introduced the new, revolutionary treatment known as Minor Tooth Movement (MTM). This system uses clear, removable aligners to correct mildly crooked teeth and gapped teeth.
“The way we describe this in our office is that it’s like Invisalign but only faster,” Dr. Patel said. “The treatment is subtle, fast, and effective. We’ve found that MTM making it ideal for adults who want straight teeth without the hassle, embarrassment or time commitment of traditional orthodontics.”
MTM patients often see optimal results anywhere from three to six months. The MTM aligners can be placed on both the upper and lower teeth to promote rapid tooth movement. Patients will wear a series of aligners until their teeth move into the most ideal location.
Dr. Patel asks that MTM patients wear the aligners for about 22 hours every day — removing the devices only eating and cleaning. Dentists believe that clear aligners are safer for many patients and help patients maintain better oral hygiene compared with conventional metal braces.
“It’s safer. It’s easy. And it can fit the patient’s budget better than almost any orthodontic system,” Dr. Patel said. “Some of our adult patients believe the time to correct their teeth has come and gone. That’s far from the truth. It’s estimated that about 50 percent of all adults could benefit from a treatment like MTM. Our office encourages you to take the next step to fixing your smile today.”
Infinite Smiles offers services in general dentistry, restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, smile makeovers, full-mouth rehabilitations, immediate-load dental implants, same-day crowns, short-term orthodontics and noninvasive gum treatments.
Dr. Patel, who grew up in a family of physicians, combines his passion for medical science, visual arts and computer technology in his dentistry. He earned his bachelor’s degree in molecular genetics and his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from The Ohio State University. Following dental school, Dr. Patel trained with the world’s leading dentists and instructors. He completed his prosthodontics fellowship at The Ohio State University by training with world-renowned prosthodontist Dr. McGlumphy and studied under Dr. Lorenzo Vanni, one of the world’s foremost authorities on neuromuscular dentistry.
Before launching his own practice in 2008, Dr. Patel also worked to educate oral surgeons on 3-D imaging and computer-assisted implant surgery. He continues to serve as an instructor and travels across the world to teach thousands of dentists every year in the latest dental technology.
At Infinite Smiles, Dr. Patel developed a system that uses CAD/CAM and cone beam computed tomography to map out dental procedures and give patients a virtual look at their new smile. When these technologies are used together, Dr. Patel can easily transfer the information to the patient, producing results within one tenth of a millimeter.
Infinite Smiles can provide patients with new, permanent teeth in just one day. Dr. Patel places the implants and completes the restoration in-house instead of having patients schedule multiple visits with various offices. The Powell dental office includes a state-of-the-art dental lab and a ceramist who is a certified Master of Dental Technology.
As an instructor in dental technology and best implant practices, Dr. Patel has been published and featured in several clinical articles, scholarly journals and news publications, including Forbes, Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, The Journal of the American Dental Association, Dental Entrepreneur and Compendium of Continuing Education in Dentistry. From 2011 to 2015, Dr. Patel was voted Top Dentist by his peers and featured in Columbus Monthly Magazine. He received the Early Career Achievement Award from The Ohio State University Alumni Association and is the beauty expert for New Beauty Magazine.
