MTM Clear Aligner Tray

Are you seeking a more beautiful looking smile in Chino, CA but not looking for the hassle of traditional braces? MTM® ClearAligner by DENTSPLY might be the perfect solution for you! Many adult patients think that correcting misalignment is reserved for kids and teenagers, but thanks to MTM® ClearAligner, no one even has to know you're wearing braces.

The “aligners” are composed of plastic trays which completely remove the need for any metal fixtures. These trays are virtually invisible and can be removed at any time. This makes activities like eating, brushing and flossing much easier than traditional orthodontic braces. MTM® ClearAligner also requires less visits to the dentist or orthodontist than traditional braces.


MTM® ClearAligner System starts with a visit to our office where we will take impressions of your teeth for creating a 3d model. Your teeth’s moldings are then sent to a dental technician that will work with us to create a digital treatment plan. Our doctors will customize a full plan for each patient based their bite and corrective needs. The plan is then shipped to a lab where your entire course of aligners are custom fabricated to fit your precise moldings. These aligners are then shipped back to our office and the doctor will provide you with them upon your next visit. Each aligner would be worn for a course of about 3 weeks. You will then need to visit our offices roughly once every two months for check-ups.


MTM® Clear•Aligner System treats cases needing minor anterior tooth movement. Both traditional braces and MTM® Clear•Aligner System will treat a wide variety of cases that include teeth crowding, spacing issues, tipping, rotated teeth and off center teeth. The best thing about MTM® Clear•Aligner System however, is that it is virtually invisible to the naked eye and can be taken out whenever you need.

This allows for better oral hygiene and more enjoyable meals. Patients with traditional braces have often complained of discomfort due to the metal fixtures involved, but with MTM® Clear•Aligner System the uncomfortable metal is replaced with smooth plastic.

Benefits Include:

  • Allows you to remove the straightening trays whenever you want
  • Removal allows you to eat the foods you enjoy
  • Trays (braces) are virtually invisible to the naked eye
  • Promotes better oral hygiene over traditional braces which make teeth hard to clean
  • Trays will not cut open the interior of the mouth like traditional braces
  • Dental office visits are less frequent than traditional braces


Length of your MTM® ClearAligner treatment depends on the patient. Sometimes it is only necessary to use the system to close a few spaces or treat minor midline discrepancies. Since MTM® ClearAligner only treats cases needing minor anterior tooth movement, desired outcomes can often be achieved in as little as 3 months to 6 months.
