Developed by DENTSPLY International, a global leader in dental and orthodontic products, MTM® Clear•Aligner is the custom-fit, esthetic and cost-effective way to align your smile without the complication of traditional braces. It corrects most minor misalignment cases in as little as three to nine months.
How do MTM® Clear Aligners work?
Clear aligners are an effective alternative to traditional braces, and involve a system of clear, removable trays used to guide teeth into proper position. Each aligner is custom-made from a strong plastic that fits over your teeth and uses gradual force to control tooth movement.
Aligners are worn for at least 20 hours each day, with a new aligner placed every 4-6 weeks. The length of your treatment depends on the severity of your case.
Clear aligners are a great alternative for patients who want a straighter smile but do not want to wear metal braces, or for patients who have had treatment in the past and want to make minor corrections to their smile.
