The MTM® procedure, or minimal tooth movement, is a remarkable cosmetic dental treatment that allows you to straighten your teeth without conventional braces. With the MTM® procedure, you can literally alter your smile in as little as 3 to 6 months.
According to Dr. Jack Ringer, Orange County’s most well known cosmetic dentist, you can have the grin of your dreams using clear plastic aligners that are custom made to fit your teeth.
When you schedule an appointment for cosmetic dentistry in Anaheim Hills, Dr. Ringer from Dental Cosmetics will examine your teeth and gums to determine what cosmetic or restorative dental treatments would be best for you and your face shape. Depending on your issues, Dr. Ringer may recommend the MTM® procedure or other cosmetic dental treatments including porcelain veneers, inlays, onlays, dental bonding, or dental implants.
If you have rotated or tilting teeth or have a gap between your teeth, you may be a good candidate for the MTM® procedure. Other reasons that Dr. Ringer may recommend MTM® or Minimal Tooth Movement include:
- Crowded Teeth
- Overlapping Teeth
- Gapped Teeth
- Misaligned Teeth
- Midline Discrepancy
- Rotating Teeth
If Dr. Ringer determines that the MTM® procedure will work for you, a series of thin clear plastic aligners will be custom made to place pressure on your teeth in order to correct minor orthodontic issues. In fact, so clear and thin are the aligners that the only people who will know that you are having the MTM® procedure are you and Dr. Ringer.
During your MTM® procedure treatment program, you will wear the clear plastic aligners between 20 and 22 hours each day. The aligners are removed when you eat and drink allowing you to brush and floss properly. With conventional wires and brackets, you are more susceptible to tooth decay, as it is impossible to brush under the brackets.
The MTM® procedure is a truly remarkable cosmetic dental procedure that can correct minor problems giving you a smile that you will be proud to show off.
