A New Innovation in Clear Braces
The newest way to straighten your teeth is the MTM®Clear Aligner. Similar to Invisalign, MTM is the undetectable way to align your smile and do it without the inconvenience or discomfort of metal braces. Best of all, MTM costs just a fraction of what traditional orthodontic braces cost.
This system is ideal for those with mild to moderate spacing or crookedness and in as little as three to six months, you can have the smile you want.
And just like Invisalign aligners, MTM aligners can be removed so your oral hygiene routine can continue and you can eat what you like. You can even remove these aligners temporarily for a special occasion or photo!
If you would like to learn more about MTM Clear Aligners or discover if you are a candidate for this treatment, please call our Poughkeepsie, New York dental office and schedule a consultation with Dr. Whalen today. MTM – Get your smile straight…and fast!
To help you with this process, below are answers to some of the most commonly-asked questions about MTM® Clear•Aligner.
How clear are the aligners?
The plastics used for MTM® Clear•Aligner are manufactured for “contact clarity”, meaning they are almost invisible when applied to the teeth. MTM® Clear•Aligner uses only quality proprietary plastics, for a virtually undetectable solution for straightening teeth discreetly.
Are the aligners comfortable?
MTM® Clear•Aligner is custom-fit to your individual needs. When you begin treatment, the aligner(s) may feel a little foreign in your mouth – but after a day or two, most people hardly notice them.
How long do I have to wear the aligners each day?
As with other aligner treatments, for optimum results, you will need to keep your aligner(s) in your mouth at all times except when you are eating, drinking hot liquids, or brushing your teeth.
How long does the MTM® Clear•Aligner treatment take?
Because MTM® Clear•Aligner treats cases requiring only minor anterior tooth movement, you can often achieve your desired outcome more quickly than with full orthodontic treatment, sometimes in as little as 3 to 6 months.
What are the aligners made of?
MTM® Clear•Aligner uses plastic that does not contain PVC or BPA.
Are there any health benefits associated with MTM® Clear•Aligner treatment?
MTM® Clear•Aligner can in many cases contribute to better oral hygiene, helping your teeth and gums to stay healthy. Improperly aligned teeth can make cleaning and brushing more difficult and lead to tooth decay, gum disease and possibly tooth loss.
