MTM® Clear Braces for a Healthy Straight Smile


If you have crooked, tipped, or rotated teeth, you may not have to resort to old school wires and brackets.

Thanks to modern day cosmetic dentistry, you can have a beautiful straight smile with clear braces using the minimal tooth movement system.


Dr. Jack Ringer is a licensed and preferred MTM® provider. Dr. Ringer is also an Accredited Fellow with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and past president of the AACD.

With the minimal tooth movement system, you can have a new smile in as little as 6 months with the average being between 12 and 18 months. Conventional braces can take up to two years.

What is the Minimal Tooth Movement System?

Made from mouth friendly dental plastic, MTM® is comfortable and pliable. Much like those trays used for professional tooth whitening, they are nearly invisible and approved by the FDA.

How Do Clear Braces Work?

Your Anaheim Hills dentist will take impressions and digital pictures that will be sent to the MTM® lab for manufacture. Depending on your custom-made plan, you will be prescribed a series of aligner sets.

Your aligners will be swapped out every seven to 14 days, or as recommended by Dr. Ringer. Much like a dental retainer, your clear braces help teeth slowly shift into place.

The Advantages of Clear Braces

Minimal Risk of Tooth Decay

Unlike conventional wires and brackets, you won’t be as susceptible to tooth decay with clear braces. Standard braces are permanent making it impossible to brush and floss under your braces. Because your clear braces are removed when you eat, brush and floss it is much easier to practice good oral hygiene.

Enjoy the Foods you Love with Clear Braces

Conventional braces make it tough to enjoy the foods you love. People who wear wires and brackets must avoid crunchy, chewy, and sticky foods. Even taking a bite out of an apple can cause problems for people who wear conventional braces.

Clear Braces are Nearly Invisible

Because the MTM® clear plastic aligners are nearly invisible the only people who will know you are having your teeth straightened are you and the team Dental Cosmetics in Anaheim Hills.

Safety First with the Clear Braces

Another big advantage is safety. Braces can break and cause damage to other parts of your mouth. Because clear aligners are smooth and comfortable, there isn’t a risk when it comes to safety.

Is MTM® a Perfect Fit for Me?

Only your dentist in Orange County can determine if clear braces are a good fit. If you have a bite that is badly aligned or suffer from a severe malocclusion, traditional wires and brackets may be more suitable for you.

Clear braces work great for people with gappy teeth, people who have mild bite problems including an open bite, cross bite, an under bite or and overbite. People who have crowded tilted, tipped, or rotated teeth are best suited to clear braces.
