If you have minimal tooth movement, you may be perfect for MTM®. MTM® is the perfect way to straighten teeth, especially if the thought of wearing traditional braces makes you cringe.
MTM® is a remarkable way to straighten your teeth using a series of clear plastic aligners. Dr. Jack Ringer from Dental Cosmetics is a trained and certified MTM® provider and can determine if MTM® is a right for you.
MTM® Clear Aligners are undetectable. In fact, unless you tell family and friends that you are wearing MTM®, you and Dr. Ringer will be the only ones who know that you are wearing aligners.
Each clear plastic MTM® aligner is custom made according to Dr. Ringers plan. MTM®, which stands for Minimal Tooth Movement, takes less time and money than conventional wire brackets or other clear plastic aligner procedures.
Spaces between teeth
According to Dr. Ringer, spaces between your teeth can be more than an aesthetic problem. If you have spaces between your teeth, it can also affect your chewing.
If your teeth are crowded you could be more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease. Dr. Ringer explains that overcrowded teeth could cause cavities, gingivitis, or the more serious periodontal disease.
Teeth that are off center
Known as midline discrepancy, teeth that are off center means that your upper and lower teeth are not aligned. If you have this dental issue, it could be a sign of an improper bite. An improper bite could lead to additional issues including pain or TMD.
If your teeth tip inward or outward, or tilt at an angle, you may be a good candidate for the minimal tooth movement procedure. If your teeth lean backward or forward it could cause crowding, an improper bite or your other teeth to shift.
Teeth that are turned counter clockwise or clockwise could make proper brushing and flossing nearly impossible. If you are unable to brush and floss correctly, you may suffer from gum disease or dental caries.
The minimal tooth movement procedure is a simple and painless alternative to conventional wires and brackets and could be the answer if you have any of the above conditions.
