What are Clear Aligners?
A clear hard-plastic mouthguard-like appliance is molded to fit very tight around your teeth. The aligner must be worn day and night (24/7 except while eating) to be effective. Very small indentations are placed in the aligner to move teeth. Sometimes, several teeth need to be recontoured (reshaped) to align the teeth in the available space.
Who can benefit from MTM with aligners?
Anyone who has a small amount of crowding (less than 3 mm) in the dental arch. The technique works best on arches which have stopped growing. One or two slightly crooked teeth can be straightened without need for traditional braces. Malocclusion or protrusion cannot be treated.
