What are MTM® Clear Aligners?
MTM® Clear Aligners (a.k.a. clear braces) are an orthodontic clear plastic aligner solution for the front eight teeth to straighten and reposition teeth. MTM stands for minor tooth movement. MTM® Clear Aligners are similar to Invisalign, Simpli5, and ClearCorrect.
The Anatomy of the Oral Cavity
MTM® Clear Aligners are managed by an orthodontist. MTM® Clear Aligners gradually shift the front teeth into the desired position through progressive changes in pre-made custom fitted clear plastic trays-no metal brackets needed. Typically worn for four to eight months, MTM® Clear Aligners require significantly less time than traditional metal braces.
What cosmetic concerns do MTM® Clear Aligners treat?
- Misaligned Teeth & Bite: MTM® Clear Aligners utilize progressive tray changes to slowly move the front teeth into the desired appearance, orientation, and spacing for a straight smile.
Who is the ideal candidate for MTM® Clear Aligners?
The ideal candidate for MTM® Clear Aligners has generally good oral health with imperfections of the front eight teeth such as protruding, rotated, or mildly crooked teeth, gaps, or overcrowding. MTM® Clear Aligners are not recommended for those with severe orthodontic issues, those who wish to address the entire bite, or children who are still growing, therefore, they are only appropriate for adult teeth.
What is the average recovery associated with MTM® Clear Aligners?
There is no defined recovery time associated with MTM® Clear Aligners. Some candidates experience temporary, mild irritation and discomfort when starting the aligners, and after tray changes, however, these side effects are temporary.
The Anatomy of the Tooth
What are the potential side effects of MTM® Clear Aligners?
Possible side effects of MTM® Clear Aligners include difficulty with regular, clear speech, increased salivation, bad breath (halitosis), overall bite alignment, and dry mouth.
What can someone expect from the results of MTM® Clear Aligners?The results of MTM® Clear Aligners will develop with progressive tray (new aligner) changes every two weeks over months to years. A retainer or mouth guard will be made after treatment is complete to limit tooth movement.
MTM® Clear Aligners can cost anywhere from $5,000 to $7,000. The actual cost of MTM® Clear Aligners is dependent upon location, healthcare provider, and length and involvement of the cosmetic procedure.
