Orthodontic Treatment

Straightening a crooked smile does more than just make it more attractive; it also improves your daily hygiene, optimizes your bite function, and lowers your risks of future tooth loss. While children often exhibit crooked teeth (malocclusion) in their early years, the condition can also develop in early adolescence or even adulthood. Regardless of age, tooth misalignment can pose a serious risk to your oral health, and Dr. Lawson can custom-design a treatment plan to help you avoid that risk and enjoy a beautiful, confident smile.

What Are MTM® Clear Aligners?

For children, early orthodontics typically takes the form of braces, though for older teen and adult patients, Dr. Lawson can offer more discreet orthodontic treatment with MTM® clear aligners. The Minor Tooth Movement (MTM) system utilizes highly discreet, custom-designed aligners that guide your teeth into straighter positions without the need for braces. For many patients, MTM® aligners can straighten smiles in as little as three to six months, compared to the two or more years needed for traditional braces.

If you or your child experience malocclusion, then ask Dr. Lawson if orthodontic treatment is the right answer. Call our dental office in Urbandale, IA, today at 515-278-4366.
