Affordable Clear Aligner Orthodontics in Jacksonville, FL
Dr. Lysandro Tapnio offers orthodontic treatment with MTM® Clear•Aligner technology from Dentsply Sirona, one of the world’s largest manufacturer of professional dental products and technologies. The MTM® Clear•Aligner technology has been in use for over ten years.
“When only the anterior (front teeth) are in need of movement, treatment may take as few as 3 to 6 months,” says Dr. Tapnio. “And, the MTM® Clear•Aligner is surprisingly affordable, putting orthodontic treatment within the financial reach of most patients. It delights me to help my patients have the smile they have always wanted.”
MTM stands for Minor Tooth Movement. Bit by bit, your teeth will move gradually and gently as you wear a series of aligners over a period of months. Before you know it, your teeth will be in their ideal position for a beautiful smile. You will remove your aligners for eating, drinking hot liquids, and for cleaning your teeth, but wear them comfortably all other times of the day.
The cost of this treatment varies, depending on the amount of movement and thus number of aligners needed. Dr. Tapnio will be able to quote the fee for your treatment, after he examines you. The good news is that MTM® Clear•Aligner treatment typically costs a fraction of other aligner options (such as Invisalign® orthodontics) or full-mouth braces (both wire and clear).
During a free initial orthodontics consultation, Dr. Tapnio will examine your mouth and discuss with you the appropriateness of this type of treatment for your situation. For many adults and teens (whose permanent teeth, including second molars, have erupted), Dr. Tapnio may be recommend MTM® Clear•Aligner treatment due to its ease, comfort, affordability, and effectiveness. If alternative treatment is in your best interest, he will fully inform you about this and offer appropriate treatment.
