When it comes to correcting misaligned and crooked teeth, there are various routes of treatments that one can take. Orthodontic treatment is typically thought of as the use of braces, but as of the past couple of decades, clear aligners have become more popular due to the cosmetic appeal over braces.

Other than the more commonly known clear aligner, Invisalign, Kneib Dentistry PC now offers an alternative, called "MTM Clear Aligner". MTM treatment is typically for the less severe orthodontic cases that present minimal crowding of teeth. The main focus of this treatment is to address anterior teeth (front six teeth). MTM literally stands for "Minor Tooth Movement", which means that this treatment is usually quicker and requires fewer visits to the dentist. Due to the minimal amount of treatment, it typically translates to a less costly form of orthodontic care.

For someone who would like to correct some minor misalignment, MTM can help them achieve the smile they have desired. Whether you are looking to perfect your teeth for your upcoming wedding or you have simply been self-conscious about your slightly crooked teeth, MTM might be the answer for you! Call us today at 814-838-6354 to see if you're a candidate!
