Definition - What does Minor Tooth Movement Clear Aligners mean?
Minor tooth movement clear aligners (MTM) are effective substitutes for braces when it comes to minor teeth corrections. The MTM clear aligners straighten teeth without the use of brackets or wires. They are made of PVC and BPA free clear plastic and are essentially unnoticeable.
The MTM clear aligners take between 3 and 6 months to achieve the desired effects.
TheConsultation explains Minor Tooth Movement Clear Aligners
MTM clear aligners are used by orthodontists to carry out minor corrections without the use of brackets or wires. They are a replacement for braces, used to correct minor tooth displacement, tooth-crowding, gapped teeth, tooth rotation, tooth intrusion or extrusion, and misaligned teeth.
The MTM clear aligners are intended for adults who already have all their permanent teeth. The advantage of MTM Clear Aligners is because they are removable and invisible, being an aesthetically more popular option.
Unlike ceramic brackets, the MTM clear aligners are not only removable, but also less expensive, and work faster than traditional orthodontic solutions - the desired effect is normally achieved between 3-6 months.
The principles the aligners work based on are the same as other types of braces: space, force and time are the main variables, with the aligners being custom made to move the teeth into their ideal position over a designated period of time.
