For many people who seek out orthodontic treatment, an adjustment is exclusively about making smile improvements. This is certainly a worthwhile goal – after all, you deserve to feel confident in the way you look. What might surprise you is that there are additional benefits to orthodontic work, including benefits for your dental function. By straightening your teeth, you can improve your bite function, and better protect yourself against problems like TMJ dysfunction. If you want to make orthodontic corrections without undergoing treatment with metal braces, talk to our Prairie Village, KS dental office about MTM Clear Aligners. You can count on MTM aligners to make cosmetic smile improvements, but your adjustment can also help you maintain a healthier bite!
A Misaligned Smile Can Be More Than A Cosmetic Problem
As far as the benefits of orthodontic treatment with MTM aligners are concerned, a better smile is just one thing you can look forward to when your adjustment is finished. By correcting the positioning of teeth that are poorly spaced, you can make it easier to clean your teeth, as awkward overlaps are no longer an issue. You can also make it easier to bite evenly. This reduces pressure on certain teeth, and it can allow you to reduce ongoing pressure on your jaw joints.
Choosing MTM Clear Aligners Over Other Orthodontic Appliances
When you opt for treatment with MTM Clear Aligners instead of metal braces, you can enjoy an adjustment period that is discreet, as these appliances are designed to preserve your natural smile. The clear plastic material is difficult for people to see when your aligners are inserted, so you will not have to be alarmed at the thought people might notice them in professional or social settings.
MTM aligners also offer an advantage that other clear appliances are not able to offer. Your MTM aligners will be designed in order to prioritize the movement of your front teeth, and bring about your improvements in less time. Patients who choose these appliances can have their work finished in just three to six months!
What To Expect During Your Adjustment Period
The goal with using clear aligners over metal braces is to make your orthodontic adjustment experience easier. After all, you will not have to worry about the way your appliances make you look at any point during your correction. You can also find that the ability to remove your aligners makes your life easier, as you will not have to worry that they might make brushing and flossing difficult, or interfere with what you can eat.
