Minor Tooth Movement Therapy in Tulsa, OK

Many patients of all ages visit Marshall Family Dentistry every year who want to straighten their smiles. In recent years, we see more and more patients who are unhappy with the appearance of minor bite alignment or spacing issues, but who don’t want to invest the time or go through the discomfort of traditional orthodontic treatment with metal bracket and wire braces. For these patients, our dentists may offer a comfortable alternative – Minor Tooth Movement (MTM) therapy. If you’re interested in finding out more about MTM, please contact our Tulsa, OK dentists and team to schedule a consultation.

How Does MTM Therapy Work?

The MTM system uses a series of clear, plastic alignment trays to gently shift teeth into position. Uniquely designed to be comfortable and gentle, MTM aligners snap into place over teeth and representing a step closer to the ideal alignment, place pressure to move the teeth into position. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks at a time, and they are exchanged for the next set in the series until teeth have reached their desired end location.
