Frequently asked questions:
The first step in fixing your smile is a consultation, either in office or over video. Dr. Goldenhersh will confirm that she can fix your smile and answer any questions you may have.
Next, we will have you come into the office to take records of your mouth – a 3D scan instead of goopy impression, a full set of x-rays, and some photos. These will allow Dr. Goldenhersh to plan out how your teeth will move, and three weeks later we’ll share that plan with you to approve. At this stage you will be able to see how many trays your treatment will need, and how long it will take. Most cases are in the range of 6-8 months.
We’ll then send the plan you approved to Invisalign to make your trays, and three weeks later we will deliver them to you. At this visit we will place your attachments, the tooth colored buttons that will help hold your trays on and help us move your teeth. The most important part of the process comes next: You will need to wear your trays 24 hours a day: day, night, for eating, sleeping, basically all the time!
We will check in with you a few times throughout the process and may perform IPR, interproximal reduction. This is polishing in between the teeth to create extremely small amounts of space and allow your teeth to easily slide by each other.
When your treatment is complete and you love your smile, we will scan you for retainers, which you will wear just like your active trays for three months to solidify your new smile. Then you will switch to nighttime only wear for as long as you don’t want your teeth to move!
No! If you’d like to you certainly can, but we are happy to offer video consults right over your phone or computer. We’ll send you a link and find a convenient time from the comfort of your own home.
We offer the best Invisalign deal around. While most offices charge between 5,000-7,000 for Invisalign treatment, here at Delmar Family Dental your treatment can cost as low as #3275 for new patients!
