Visit Us for a Free Consultation
Swing by our offices for your Tulsa or Claremore braces consultation. You’ll meet the team, we’ll take complimentary x-rays and Dr. Patel will examine your mouth. If you need braces, he’ll create a diagnosis and present you with a personalized treatment plan. After you go over your teeth-straightening options, he’ll answer any questions you (or mom and dad) have. We’ll chat with you about your goals, the cost, insurance and our affordable payment plans. Intrigued? Call us at (918) 342-1240 (Claremore) or (918) 749-8817 (Tulsa) to schedule your consultation with Dr. Patel.
Get Your Braces Put On
Woohoo! Now your new smile will really start taking shape. Getting braces put on doesn’t hurt at all and there are zero needles involved. The bonding process typically takes less than an hour. You’ll sit back and relax while Dr. Patel sticks the brackets to your teeth using a special glue. He’ll then run your customized arch wires through your braces. If you want to individualize your new tooth hardware, this is the part where you get to pick your colorful elastics. When we’re done, we’ll give you instructions for caring for your braces and send you off to enjoy the rest of your day.
Come in for Adjustments
We see most of our patients every six to eight weeks for adjustments. Dr. Patel will make the necessary tweaks and check your progress. If you have questions or concerns, we’re always to happy to help, so just let us know.
Show Off Your New Smile
This is a momentous occasion! After we congratulate you, Dr. Patel will get to work removing your braces, which is just painless as getting them put on. Once you bid your brackets and wires farewell, we’ll polish your teeth and let you admire your results in the mirror.
Wear a Retainer
When your braces come off, the teeth have a natural tendency to want to move back to where they were before treatment. The only way to prevent this and maintain your new smile for life is to wear a retainer as instructed, which is why we fit you for a custom one at the conclusion of your braces treatment. When you see how amazing your results are, a retainer won’t seem like a big deal.
From our flexible financing to our no upcharge policy, we have some perks that set us apart!
