The More Esthetic Alternative to Braces
When your teeth aren’t aligned properly, straightening is one of the most important things you can do for your smile and oral health. The longer they remain crooked, the more damage they can cause to the joints, muscles, and other structures that control your bite. However, conventional metal braces can often come with cosmetic and other considerations that make older teen and adult patients hesitate to wear them. Fortunately, we offer a more comfortable and discreet alternative in the form of MTM® (Minor Tooth Movement) clear aligners.
The Benefits of Clear Aligners
While traditional braces require brackets and wires to gently force teeth into straighter positions, clear aligners achieve the same goal by utilizing their unique, customized, and digitally designed shapes. Each aligner in the series is carefully shaped to guide crooked teeth toward straighter positions, and progressing through treatment is accomplished by switching your aligners for the next ones in the series every couple of weeks. Because they’re virtually invisible and temporarily removable, MTM® aligners offer a variety of benefits, such as:
- Higher confidence thanks to nearly invisible aligners
- Greater comfort due to the lack of wires
- Improved hygiene practices with removable aligners
- No need to alter your diet to accommodate braces
- Faster treatment time than traditional braces (often as little as six months)
