Your Invisalign dentist provides the MTM no trace system and clear braces in North Richland Hills, TX for discreet orthodontic treatment. Both teens and adults like the more modern alternative to traditional metal braces.
Invisalign trays must be worn most of the day, taken out only for eating and teeth cleaning. The custom-fitted clear aligner trays are virtually invisible. Patients are given a set of trays, each providing a bit more resistance than the last. The process involves gentle force and gradual movement leading to the desired alignment over time. Clear braces in North Richland Hills help teens and adults achieve a straight smile without noticeable brackets and painful wires.
Many adults choose clear braces not only because it is discreet treatment, but there is also no need to change your diet. This is because these orthodontic systems are removable for eating. Also, since there are no brackets or wires, there is no need for frequent wire tightening visits.
MTM clear braces are mounted behind teeth for completely invisible orthodontic treatment. This type of lingual braces is for patients who require only minimal tooth correction. Optimal results may be achieved in as little as 12 to 24 weeks. With minor tooth movement (or interceptive orthodontics) we can address complications which involve a small number of teeth located on either the top, bottom or both. With MTM braces in Richmond, our patients can correct minor imperfections while avoiding a full set of braces or aligners. Treatment with MTM orthodontics is often much shorter than traditional orthodontic treatment options.
If your teeth are crooked or crowded, clear braces may help you achieve optimal oral health. Your Invisalign dentist will help you determine which method will work best for you.
Typically, aligner trays need to be worn all day, with only two hours off. Orthodontic treatments vary per patient, but most individuals achieve the desired results within a year or two. Expect to make periodic dental visits during this time. Those who opt for MTM treatment will have braces placed on the backs of teeth and should expect much shorter treatment times than those who select Invisalign.
After treatment is completed, you will no longer need to wear aligner trays. But you may need a dental retainer for a set time to protect your newly straightened teeth. It is also very important to keep up with regular dental exams and routine cleanings.
