MTM Aligners

Straighten Smiles Clearly

clear braces

For adults who desire straighter teeth and a more beautiful smile, traditional braces are often too much of a barrier. Fortunately, there is a great solution from your cosmetic dentist: MTM aligners in San Marco, FL. This option uses clear plastic trays to place pressure on teeth and reposition them over the course of just a few months. In fact, most patients can complete their treatment in just 3 to 8 months -- all without the need for those metal brackets and wires that you associate with “braces.”

Dr. Sol Brotman’s dental office offers a number of preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry services to help keep you smiling happily and healthily. Keep reading to learn more about just one, MTM (Minimal Tooth Movement) aligners!

How MTM Works

MTM works using the same orthodontic principles of traditional braces, which means gradual movement through focused pressure. Metal braces work with fused brackets on the surface of each tooth -- wires are connected to the brackets, and, by adjusting the wire, pressure is placed on the teeth and they gradually move. MTM is the same, except instead of metal hardware, pressure is placed on the teeth with sturdy plastic trays.

With this treatment method, each set of aligners is custom-built to match your dentition at each stage of the treatment. You wear each one for about two weeks before switching to the next set, gradually working your way to straighter, more beautiful teeth!

Who Is MTM For?

The MTM treatment method is best for patients with mild to moderate orthodontic issues. For more complex problems, traditional braces may still be the best solution. Crowding and overlapping of the teeth are perfect treatment cases for MTM. We do not recommend this option for teens. If you have a healthy smile and do not experience jaw pain or worn tooth enamel, MTM may be a wonderful option for you. The only way to know for sure whether or not you can benefit from this treatment option is to schedule an appointment with your Jacksonville cosmetic dentist!

Multiple Benefits of MTM Aligners

For many patients, MTM offers a number of advantages compared to conventional braces. Some of the most significant advantages associated with this treatment option include…
