Whether you are interested in having straight teeth to improve the appearance of your smile or if you are interested in improving the health of your teeth by correcting malocclusion, we have methods to help you with this. Malocclusion can lead to periodontal disease and premature wear and trauma on the teeth and be a risk to your overall health. We use two systems for making these corrections: Invisalign and MTM.
Invisalign is a system of custom made clear aligners that gradually moves your teeth toward the smile you’ve always wanted that are virtually invisible. The number of aligners and length of treatment necessary will vary depending on the type and degree of the malocclusion. Average treatment time is about a year. At the end of treatment you will receive retainers to maintain the new position of your teeth.
MTM (Minor Tooth Movement)
The MTM process also uses clear aligners to correct minor tooth alignments such as crowding, gaps or orthodontic relapse. MTM is designed to concentrate on the front six upper and lower teeth. Results can be seen in as little as 3 to 6 months and you will have retainers to maintain their position.
