Clear Teeth Aligners
Orthodontics has changed dramatically over the last few decades, and there has never been a better time to straighten your teeth. Although metal braces are still used, especially with full corrections, there are so many different options for a straighter smile! One of the most popular ways to straighten teeth is with clear aligners. Invisalign has been a popular choice in the past, but we’d like to introduce you to two new options: Clear Correct and MTM® Clear•Aligner!
Clear Correct for Teeth Straightening
It is a clear alternative to traditional braces that makes it easy to straighten your teeth without the discomfort of bands, brackets, or wires. Because Clear Correct is virtually invisible, you can smile both before treatment and after. In fact, almost no one will know you’re wearing it unless you tell them! By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Clear Correct straightens your teeth right before your eyes. You will receive new aligners every two weeks, and your teeth will move toward the smile you’ve always wanted.
Some benefits of Clear Correct include:
- Invisible design
- Removable for good dental hygiene
- Best for full mouth treatments
- Treatment takes 6-18 months, on average
- Comfortable, especially when compared to full mouth metal braces
The Clear Correct technology is an ideal solution for correcting spacing or crowding issues. Because the aligners are removable, you can continue to eat your favorite foods, brushing and flossing like normal to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Aligners are worn continually to allow maximum tooth movement, and the average treatment time is only 6-18 months.
MTM® Clear•Aligner for Straighter Teeth
MTM® Clear•Aligner is an exciting product that can be used for partial teeth straightening. “MTM” stands for “Minor Tooth Movement”, and this technology has quickly become a popular choice for limited teeth straightening.
Some benefits of MTM® Clear•Aligner include:
- Comfortable to wear
- Treatment takes 3-6 months, on average
- Almost complete invisibility
- Better for partial teeth straightening
- Affordable option, especially when compared to full mouth treatment with other invisible aligners.
If you’re looking to straighten a small section of your teeth, instead of your entire mouth, MTM® Clear•Aligner is a great option for teeth straightening!
In Office Teeth Straightening Treatments
After taking initial impressions of your teeth, the doctor uses 3-D computer imaging to map the complete treatment from start to finish. From this plan, the lab produces a series of custom-designed aligners unique to your treatment. Each aligner set is worm for 2 weeks, and is then replaced by the next aligner. Gradually the teeth move into their final position.
