MTM® Clear•Aligner: The Invisalign Alternative
The MTM® Clear•Aligner is an aligner system very similar to Invisalign. Created over ten years ago, MTM® is an aesthetic orthodontic option for those with mild to moderate tooth alignment concerns of anterior (the front six) teeth. If you have minor tooth misalignment issues of one or two crooked teeth or are having a relapse from orthodontic treatment, our teeth straightening system can provide an attractive alternative to wire braces.

- What is the MTM® Clear•Aligner system?
MTM® Clear•Aligner is a bracket-less system to straighten upper and lower teeth that require minor tooth movement (which is what MTM stands for) using a series of clear, removable plastic aligners. MTM® is not meant for significant orthodontic corrections or fixing bite issues, but for aesthetic problems involving the front six (anterior) teeth.
- Can teens use this teeth straightening system?
MTM® is suitable for teenagers with all their permanent teeth, including second molars, and who can conform to the treatment requirements. You must wear your aligners for 20-22 hours every day and only be removed for eating, drinking hot beverages, brushing, and flossing.
- Do clear aligners hurt?
Our aligners are designed to custom fit your teeth and are gradually activated to move your teeth little by little. This design reduces discomfort and oral irritations. It may take a day or two to get used to wearing your new aligner, but then you’ll hardly notice it!
