Dental technology has exploded in the last decade or so, especially in the area of orthodontics. One of these new teeth-correcting appliances is the MTM® Clear•Aligner. This state-of-the-art technology uses incremental transparent aligners to adjust teeth back to their ideal position. Because it is nearly invisible, no one can see how it helps to correct slight misalignments that include gaps or crowding, leaving you with a beautiful and healthy-looking smile.
Clear aligner orthodontics is surprisingly affordable, with results often appearing in less time than traditional braces, all without the less-than-attractive metal brackets. The typical timeframe of clear aligner orthodontics can be as few as 6 months, depending on your situation. The cost is also reduced, due to the material used. When you contact our office, Dr. Allen Daniels will explain the technology and determine whether it’s right for you.
Properly aligned teeth are not just for appearance. They are important to the health of your gums, as well as to help prevent more serious health problems from surfacing. Misaligned teeth can lead to jaw stress and unnecessary wear of the enamel, which can affect the health of your teeth and the supporting bone.
Some questions patients may ask about the MTM Clear•Aligner include:
- How clear are the aligners?
- Are the aligners comfortable?
- How long do I have to wear the aligners daily?
- Will I need to wear a retainer after treatment?
To answer these questions, it’s best to talk with our dentist, since he can ascertain your unique situation and suggest recommendations based on your dental health.
