MTM Clear Aligner Kneib Dentistry

An alternative to orthodontic care for minimal treatment.

Other than the more commonly known clear aligner, Invisalign®, Kneib Dentistry 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.

Orthodontics FAQs

What usually happens during an initial orthodontic exam? 

In order to determine your specific needs, a dentist will completely evaluate your mouth. This will likely include:

  • Impressions of your teeth, from which models are made (these are useful for the doctor, and will remind you exactly how your teeth looked before correction).
  • Photographs of your teeth, face, and smile
  • X-rays of your head and teeth
  • Your medical health history and dental health history

The doctor will then carefully evaluate your specific needs and provide you with a treatment plan for correction. Following the recommended plan is important for proper correction.
