Dentsply Sirona Orthodontics announces the expansion of treatment indications for the MTM® (Minor Tooth Movement) Clear•Aligner. The clear aligner combines proven orthodontic techniques with advanced digital modeling to provide dental professionals with a streamlined solution for treating minor anterior misalignments.
MTM® Clear•Aligner is uniquely engineered to deliver the space and force needed to accomplish tooth movement. The technology utilizes a proprietary “open pathway” architecture that allows teeth to move easily into the desired positions. Unlike other clear aligners, MTM® Clear•Aligner does not require clinicians to bond unsightly attachments to teeth, to accomplish movement. No attachments saves practice chair time and provides for a more esthetically pleasing treatment solution for the patient. To facilitate tooth movement MTM® Clear•Aligner uses integrated “force points”, programmed into the aligner, to provide a greater range of tooth movements, while making aligner placement and removal easy for the patient.
MTM® Clear•Aligner, targets the movement and positioning of the six most visible teeth, on both the upper and lower arches. These teeth are known as the social six. The aligner movements address tooth; spacing, tipping, torqueing, intrusion, extrusion, and rotation. Ideal candidates are those who are experiencing adult tooth crowding, orthodontic relapse, or those who seek cosmetic enhancements. Of the thousands of cases completed since the products’ launch, many dental professional note that most of their patients sought simply to improve their smile.
Brad Clatt, Group Vice President of Orthodontics states, “Whether a dental professional currently prescribes clear aligners, or has been waiting for an aligner system that better fits the needs of their patients, MTM Clear•Aligner is a simple solution to address one of the most common misalignments seen in adult patients today.. Dentsply Sirona prides itself on keeping patient care, where it belongs, in the hands of the clinician, and offers each clinician a customized approach to treating their patients. MTM Clear•Aligner is a highly affordable solution for both doctor and patient, with the ability to move the social six to the desired position, creating the patient’s Ideal Smile.”
To help offices get started with MTM Clear•Aligner, Dentsply Sirona Orthodontics offers an attractively-priced Welcome Kit that includes discounted patient cases, a web based training course, practice marketing and office integration resources.
