Having crooked teeth or a misaligned bite is not ideal when it comes to how you feel about the way you look or your oral health. A misaligned bite may cause feelings of insecurity about smiling and laughing, which can hold you back when expressing yourself.
At Prairie Dental Care, we offer an orthodontic solution that gives our patients great results without bulky brackets and wires.
MTM® (Minor Tooth Movement) Clear Aligners are similar to both ClearCorrect and Invisalign. They use similar incremental aligner technology to gradually move your teeth into ideal alignment, resulting in the correction of common orthodontic conditions, including:
To determine if this orthodontic system is right for you, schedule an appointment for a consultation!
Dr. Wang and Dr. Ma welcome you to our Aurora, IL dental office for an orthodontic evaluation. We can discuss your case, the outcome you wish to achieve, and viable treatment options to give you the results you want.
Since MTM® Clear Aligners move primarily your anterior teeth (the teeth in the front), treatment usually takes between 3 and 6 months.
We first take x-rays and impressions, and then we plan your course of treatment. At this time, either Dr. Wang or Dr. Ma will discuss treatment times, cost, and follow-up appointments. Next, we will send your information to the lab, which will create your aligner trays.
Once we receive your trays, we will discuss the duration for each set and how to proceed with treatment for the best results.
MTM® Clear Aligners work best for patients who have all their permanent teeth and molars and who will comply with treatment instructions.
Like Invisalign and ClearCorrect, MTM® Clear Aligners are completely clear and nearly invisible. They are smooth and do not cause irritation like brackets and wires. Treatment is often less expensive than conventional braces due to reduced treatment times and provides exceptional outcomes for patients looking to improve their smiles with cosmetic braces.
We know that planning to improve the appearance of your smile is exciting! Give us a call and we will be happy to discuss clear braces and other cosmetic dentistry options that will help you achieve a smile that makes you feel great about the way you look!
