Minor Tooth Movement - MTM

What is the MTM® Clear Aligner?

MTM is an acronym that stands for “Minor Tooth Movement.” The MTM® Clear Aligner is a virtually undetectable way to correctly align your teeth without needing to use traditional braces.

How does the MTM® Clear Aligner treatment work?

Each MTM® Clear Aligner is fabricated as per your doctor’s instructions to make very slight adjustments in the position of your teeth. Every few weeks a new MTM® Clear Aligner is fabricated to move your teeth a little further. A series of such aligners are used over time to correct minor malalignments such as crowding or gaps between your teeth.

What is the MTM® Clear Aligner made of?

The MTM® Clear Aligner is made from high quality plastics specially manufactured for “contact clarity” which means they are almost invisible when applied to your teeth. The plastics used for the manufacture of the MTM® ClearAligner do not contain BPA or PVC.

How comfortable is the MTM® Clear Aligner?

MTM® Clear Aligner is custom made to meet your individual needs. Most people may feel slight discomfort for a day or two following the application of the MTM® Clear Aligner, but subsequently they are hardly aware of it.

How many hours in a day should the MTM® Clear Aligner be worn?

The MTM® Clear Aligner is supposed to be worn continuously except when you are eating, brushing your teeth, and drinking hot fluids.

Who is an ideal candidate for the MTM® Clear Aligner?

What are the benefits of the MTM® Clear Aligner?

Unlike other types of braces such as lingual braces or clear braces which are attached permanently to your teeth and can only be removed by an orthodontist, you can remove the MTM® Clear Aligner by yourself.
