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.
