The Clear Advantage
MTM® Clear•Aligneruses plastic that does not contain PVC or BPA, so they are safe and healthy for you. Moreover, they are manufactured for contact clarity, which makes them almost invisible when they are on you teeth. The aligners are from Dentsply Sirona, the world’s largest manufacturer of professional dental products and technologies so you can be sure you are receiving a high-quality product from a company dentists have trusted for more than 100 years.
Other Advantages of MTM® Clear•Aligner
In addition to being nearly invisible, MTM® Clear•Aligner offers another distinct advantage over standard orthodontics. These braces are removable. Therefore, whenever you want to eat, enjoy a hot beverage or brush and floss your teeth, simply remove your clear aligners. You can eat whatever you like, which is something most people wearing metal braces cannot do because hard and sticky foods could break or dislodge brackets and wires.
And because you’ll remove your clear aligners to brush and floss your teeth, the risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease during orthodontic treatment will be reduced. Also, improperly aligned teeth are harder to keep clean, so this advantage continues once you finish wearing the MTM® Clear•Aligner.
The MTM® Clear•Aligner Difference
What does MTM stand for? Minor Tooth Movement. This is a process for aligning upper and/or lower teeth that really only need straightening for cosmetic reasons. The system uses a series of comfortable and removable plastic aligners to achieve the goal of a straight smile more quickly than with tradition metal braces. In fact, orthodontic treatment with MTM® Clear•Aligner can sometimes be completed in as little as three to six months depending on the needs of your smile.
Except for when you eat or perform oral hygiene at home, you will need to wear your MTM® Clear•Aligner in order to achieve optimum results. When you begin wearing these aligners, they may feel a little funny in your mouth. However, most people report that they hardly notice them after a couple of days.
At the conclusion of your treatment with MTM® Clear•Aligner, you will need to wear a retainer to help maintain the positioned of newly aligned teeth.
