Frequently asked questions (FAQs)
Treatment process at your Bergheim Orthodontics Dr. Cherry:Consulting In a free and non-binding consultation appointment in our orthodontic practice in Bergheim we examine your teeth, gums and misaligned teeth and advise you on the options for aligner treatment. At this appointment we can give you a rough estimate of the treatment costs. initial diagnosis The initial diagnosis is crucial for planning a therapy. Various findings are made on this. The jaw joints are also examined. The following documents are created:
- Intra- and extraoral photos
- Digital x-ray of the teeth
- Intraoral 3D scan
In addition to the inconspicuous nature of the treatment method, a major advantage lies in the shorter duration of the orthodontic treatment in Bergheim. While with fixed braces all teeth must first be leveled with elastic arches before teeth can be precisely moved using stable arches and elastic rubber chains, this step is completely eliminated with an aligner treatment. Since the sequence of all movements is planned precisely before the start of an aligner treatment, aligner treatments are completed around 1/3 faster than conventional treatments. At the beginning of the treatment, all the aligners required for the treatment are already produced, which means that the check-up appointments can be arranged flexibly and do not have to take place at fixed intervals as with fixed braces. Emergency appointments due to loose brackets or annoying wires are also completely eliminated.
Transparent splints like those from Invisalign are a clear alternative to fixed braces. Your treatment with aligners consists of a series of several removable aligners that you change weekly. Aligners are thin splints that cover your teeth like a second skin. You can easily remove your aligners to eat and brush your teeth, so there are no restrictions. By changing the aligners every week, the teeth are moved bit by bit into the final position that your specialist in Bergheim has planned for therapy. An aligner treatment is not only suitable for adults. Treatments for children and adolescents are also possible with "Invisalign Teen". Depending on the extent of the necessary corrections, between 7 and 50 aligners are often required. Average treatment times are between 6 and 12 months. The aligner method with Invisalign is the ideal treatment method for small, medium and severe corrections of misaligned teeth.
Compared to conventional treatment methods, aligner treatments in Bergheim are usually completed in a much shorter time and with fewer check-ups. Reasons for this lie in the exact planning by us and the treatment method.
The cost of treatment with Dr. Kirsch, orthodontist Bergheim and Dr. Lukas Mertens, M.Sc. Orthodontics Bergheim, are individual depending on the severity of the tooth misalignment.
dr Lukas Mertens, M.Sc Orthodontics Bergheim, was intensively trained by Align Technology (USA) as an Invisalign specialist by experienced, internationally renowned clinical specialists. In addition to his orthodontic work in an orthodontic practice, he worked as an Invisalign specialist at Align Technology (San Jose, USA) in an international team, further developing the "invisible" Invisalign braces. The knowledge from countless planned and set ClinCheck treatment plans to treat even highly complex treatment tasks with aligners benefits the small and large patients in Bergheim.

Pain is always subjective and everyone has a different perception of pain. Due to the precise planning with only small movements per splint, the pain is significantly less compared to conventional fixed braces.
