Did you know there is a way to straighten your teeth without wearing braces or enduring long treatment times? MTM® Clear Aligners in Lovell offer an excellent alternative for people who are dealing with minor gaps or crowding in the teeth that show when they smile. Your trusted cosmetic dentist, Dr. Lance Anderson, is pleased to offer this popular treatment for eligible candidates. Keep reading to learn more about how MTM® Clear Aligners work and whether or not they’re right for you.
MTM® Clear Aligners are a clear braces system that uses a series of translucent plastic aligners to straighten the teeth in place of metal brackets and wires. By placing focused pressure on different areas of the bite throughout treatment, the teeth are gradually shifted into the proper position.
MTM® Clear Aligners work well for minor issues like gaps or crowding that affect the six teeth that show when you smile -- the ones we sometimes refer to as the “social 6.” By focusing on just these teeth, your cosmetic dentist can greatly improve the appearance of your smile in a very short amount of time.
MTM® Clear Aligners use the same orthodontic principles as traditional braces (gradual movement through focused pressure), but because the treatment utilizes clear, plastic materials rather than metal hardware affixed to the teeth, it won’t be the first thing anyone notices when you speak or smile.
In addition to being translucent, the MTM® Clear Aligner system is also removable. That means that, unlike with braces, you won’t have to make any special modifications to your diet to avoid popping off a bracket or wire.
Invisalign offers another removable clear braces option, and it’s one you can also find here at Lovell Dental. Because MTM® Clear Aligners are designed to correct cosmetic issues that only affect the six teeth that show when you smile, it is a much better choice for people who do not need a complete overhaul of their bite. MTM® Clear Aligners also offer a more affordable alternative to Invisalign as treatment times are shorter for simple cases.
If your front teeth are slightly gapped or crowded, but the rest of your bite is ok overall, you may be an excellent candidate for treatment with MTM® Clear Aligners. To find out for sure whether or not you could benefit from this clear braces option, please do not hesitate to get in touch with your cosmetic dentist in Lovell. Dr. Anderson will evaluate the extent of your orthodontic issues and help you determine which treatment method is best for your smile, budget, and lifestyle.
