Minor Tooth Movement

Say goodbye to traditional braces!

Do you dream about having a smile full of sparkling, straight teeth, but you just can't imagine yourself wearing traditional metal braces? You've probably invested in a professional, mature image, and you shouldn't have to look like a teenager to straighten your teeth. We at Houston Prosthodontic Associates agree. Now, your dreams can come true when you visit our office.

We offer Minor Tooth Movement (MTM®), an orthodontic treatment approved by the FDA. It's the virtually invisible method to straighten your teeth without conventional metal braces. With MTM®, a custom-molded set of transparent, removable aligners will progressively reposition your teeth. You can simply remove the aligners before eating, brushing, flossing, or special occasions.

This technology is more comfortable and convenient than traditional braces. Patients do not experience the mouth abrasions caused by metal and wires, and clear orthodontic aligners are easy to clean. Adjustment appointments aren't necessary, either.

The Process

After we take impressions of your teeth, Dr. Gittleman will plan a course of treatment. Then a lab will create a series of aligners to reposition your teeth over one to two years. You'll change aligners every two weeks until your smile is straight and beautiful. Typically, you will visit us every six weeks for progress reports.

Transparent, removable, no-hassle orthodontia – now that should put a smile on your face! Call us today to learn more about MTM by dialing 713-993-0003.

Testimonials

Dear Dr. Gittleman, I should have sent this along ago but struggled with trying to find the words that truly conveyed my gratitude. I don't know if you have any idea what you have done for me – maybe you do; but you have given me several gifts… a lot more confidence, through the roof comfort and a cost that was affordable for us. I'm able to eat, laugh, talk and even travel now without worrying that my prosthesis is going to shift or move or click – for the first time in almost 4 years! And because it doesn't move or shift, there is no more pain. Before the implants, I had constant discomfort, mouth sores and difficulty eating. I know it's only been a little over a month, but it's been fabulous so far! You and your staff were wonderful and completely professional. I will never be able to return the kindness – but if I know anyone who is considering implants I will send them your way – you are simply the Best!
