Invisalign employs next-generation procedures and technology to improve the placement of your teeth and provide cosmetic dental results. At MM Dentistry in Burke, we adhere to the highest standards in dental practice and offer outstanding dental options.
Dr. Ma recommends Invisalign as the clear, removable, comfortable solution toward teeth alignment. We like clear aligners because they’re discreet, removable, and are a great alternative for traditional braces. They’ll give you a functional, healthy, beautiful set of teeth you’ll be proud to show off. The Invisalign procedure is efficient, effective, and doesn’t require anesthesia.
What Is the Invisalign Process?
The process starts with a thorough evaluation of your teeth.
During your consultation, Dr. Ma and his staff will take some pictures of your teeth and provide personalized recommendations. We’ll also discuss your smile goals and answer any questions you may have.
We’ll take digital impressions to model the new aligners
Using our state-of-the-art iTero scanner, we will quickly scan your teeth to send to Invisalign. Invisalign will create a digital model of your teeth with a treatment plan specifically designed for you. They’ll create “before” and “after” teeth renderings, and the smooth, thin plastic aligners will be customized to fit your teeth.
You’ll try out your new aligners.
- With Invisalign, You can pop the aligners into your mouth and that’s it–you’re ready to go. They work for you the entire time you’re wearing them.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Each aligner set follows your treatment plan stages. Each set is slightly different and more progressively in line with the final version of your teeth. They gently guide your teeth and gradually move them into place. About every two weeks, you’ll move on to the next aligner set. When your teeth reach the alignment goal, you’re done.
How Long Should I Wear Aligners?
You’ll need to keep them on for 22 hours a day. Once you get used to wearing them, you’ll hardly notice they’re there.
Invisalign is Easy to Use and Clean
You can easily remove your aligners for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing your teeth. Remember to brush your invisalign trays before putting them back on!
How Long Does the Invisalign Process Take?
They can take anywhere from 6-24 months, but each treatment plan varies with each patient’s unique needs. After you reach your final smile goals, you will be given retainers to maintain your smile.

Does Invisalign Work as Well as Regular Braces?
Yes, it does. Every patient has individual needs and an approach unique to them, but Invisalign is often an excellent alternative to traditional braces.
Invisalign does more than straighten teeth!
It can also reduce future recession or abfraction caused by misaligned teeth. When brushing and flossing, you may be able to access more areas which would not occur if there were teeth crowding. This would also reduce biofilm, calculus, and your chances of getting gum disease. Basically, straight teeth can improve overall oral health!
