For information on Minor Tooth Movement, please visit:

  • MTM uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth
  • Affordable! -MTM clear aligners are covered under many comprehensive dental/ orthodontic insurance plans
  • You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
  • As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position Dr. Chapel and Dr. Keller has prescribed.
  • You’ll visit Dr. Chapel and Dr. Keller about once every 4-6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
