Many patients are unhappy with their smile and unaware of the solutions available to them. Crooked teeth aren’t just a cosmetic issue. A misaligned bite can lead to increased risk for cavities and wear.
Dr. Alrez treats patients using MTM® Clear Aligners, an invisible alternative to braces.
What are MTM® Clear Aligners?
MTM® stands for minor tooth movement. That means the aligners make minor adjustments to the top or bottom teeth with small movements. Using clear appliances that fit over your teeth, MTM® Clear Aligners give you the smile you want in no time. Treatment can be as fast as 3-6 months.
MTM® Clear Aligners offer several benefits over other straightening options. Since they are removable, there is no need to adjust your diet or dental hygiene routine. Unlike other options, these aligners do not have attachments that look unattractive and make it difficult to take your appliance in and out of your mouth.
Our team will take a 3D impression of your mouth and use them to create an invisible appliance that fits over your teeth. Every 6 weeks or so, you will stop by our office to get new aligners. As time goes on, Dr. Alrez will adjust the aligners to progress toward the smile you want. You will wear your aligners at all times, except while eating, brushing your teeth, and drinking hot beverages. By the end of your treatment, your teeth will shift into a straight smile.
