One of those cosmetic options is teeth realignment via MTM® Clear Aligners. These clear aligner trays are removable braces that help transform the aesthetic alignment of your teeth. The dental team at Smile Designs can help patients straighten their teeth in as little 3 to 6 months due to the unique design of this type of clear braces. Continue reading to learn about the other benefits that the MTM treatment can offer.
Discreet treatment –
Since the aligners are made of clear plastic, they are virtually invisible to the naked eye. This allows you to wear the aligners throughout the day without having to worry about at standing out because of embarrassing oral appliances sticking out of your mouth like you would with traditional braces.
Although you should wear your aligners as much as possible to ensure that your treatment is working correctly, you do have the luxury of removing your aligners’ trays. Your trays should be removed before and during meals so they don’t get damaged and can be removed for up to two hours before effecting your treatment process.
Shorter time frame –
Unlike traditional orthodontics options that are known to take up to 18 months or longer to complete treatment, an MTM treatment works in a fraction of the time while still maintaining the same (if not better) professional outcome. Of course, your treatment will depend on your specific oral needs but a complete MTM treatment will take up to six months.
Less expensive –
Since MTM treatments are completed in a shorter amount of time and there fewer materials used in the entire process, MTM aligners are much more affordable than traditional options.
