Dr. Patel's expertise in dentistry is coupled with an authentic concern for his patients and their long-term oral health. His focus is on prevention and minimally invasive dentistry.
Manhattan dentist, Dr. Parag Patel, and his team of dental specialists highly recommend Invisalign to all of their patients who are looking to correct their smile. Invisalign is the best way to correct your smile without all of the hassle associated with traditional braces. At Uptown Dental in NYC, we know how important it is to our patients to be confident in their smiles.
Invisalign technology uses clear trays as orthodontic devices. These clear trays are custom-made aligners created for you (and only you) and act as clear braces. Invisalign aligners are made to fit precisely over your teeth and move your teeth gradually to an ideal arch-form, bite alignment and beautiful smile. The aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. They gradually and gently shift your teeth into place. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference to your daily life.
Simply stated, it's the most convenient, comfortable, and effective way to straighten your teeth. Yes, there are other options but none like Invisalign®. No matter what stage you're at in life, you'll appreciate how our cutting-edge approach to treatment has minimal interference in how you live but has a significant positive impact on how you look and feel about yourself.
If you're deciding between traditional braces or Invisalign, you should be well-informed. We understand that our patients are all looking for the same result: a confident and beautiful smile. Though both options will effectively treat conditions such as crossbite, overbite, underbite, crowding, or crooked teeth- there are a plethora of benefits that Invisalign provides. This is why Manhattan dentist Dr. Patel wants all of his patients to know all of the information up front.
With regular braces, you may experience some or all of the following: pain, discomfort, mouth sores or injuries caused by the brace wires, tooth decay (from inadequate brushing and flossing), plaque buildup, tooth discoloration, tooth/bracket breakage, or difficulty eating. As if that weren’t enough, there are also the personal sacrifices—popcorn, chips, bagels, hard-crusted bread, pizza crust, pretzels, nuts, certain candies…plus apples, carrots, corn on the cob, and more.
Like any orthodontic treatment, you will need retention in order to keep your teeth in the ideal position created by your Invisalign treatment. Invisalign offers a new type of retainer that seems to work better than the traditional, bulky, orthodontic retainer. The Invisalign retainers (called Vivera retainers) are simply rigid but comfortable Invisalign trays that you wear while you are sleeping.

I have been a patient of Dr. Patel's for over 12 years and have always been overly satisfied. His work is meticulous and pain free and best of all, he doesn't recommend you have unnecessary procedures. His approach is always professional and procedures are quick. His office staff is always friendly and willing to help squeeze you in if need be. I would highly recommend Dr. Patel to anyone!
