Q: What does the "MTM" in MTM® Clear•Aligner mean?

A: “MTM” stands for “Minor Tooth Movement” – a process for aligning upper and/or lower teeth requiring minimal movement. MTM® Clear•Aligner uses a series of clear, comfortable, removable plastic aligners to achieve rapid results. It’s the virtually undetectable way to improve your smile.

Q: What is the difference between invisible braces, clear braces, lingual braces and MTM® Clear•Aligner?

A: The term “invisible braces” may be used to refer to either “clear braces” or “lingual braces”. Clear braces are similar to regular wire braces except that the brackets are made of a clear material instead of metal. Lingual braces are placed behind the teeth so they are not easily visible. Both clear braces and lingual braces are attached to your teeth, and removable only by your orthodontist. MTM® Clear•Aligner is fully removable, making it easier to eat, brush and floss.

Q: How clear are the aligners?

A: 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.

Q: Are the aligners comfortable?

A: 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.

Q: How long do I have to wear the aligners each day?

A: 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.
