“AMAZING 6/5 STARS... New to the area and was having wisdom tooth pain. Dr. Han was extremely caring and didn't rush me to get an extraction. He made sure I felt good so I could keep him updated. Obviously will go back for my extraction soon and I'm glad I found them. Update: Had two of my wisdom teeth extracted. Getting an appointment was fast and they have convenient hours. I was extremely nervous but Dr. Han is AMAZING. The procedure was so fast and you could tell he is very good at what he does. My recovery was less than 24 hours, with minimal pain. Went back for the suture removal and it is almost completely healed only a week later. ”

I am never one to leave reviews, but this one is beyond deserving. Dr. Han and his assistant went above and beyond my expectations. I suffer from severe anxiety when it comes to doctors because of past experiences. However, Dr. Han's jokes and literally telling me everything he was doing before he did it made this a wonderful visit. I left feeling great and not anxious. #officiallyhavemypermanentdoc

“I am SUPER nervous about going to the dentist, but this place is FABULOUS. The staff was friendly, gentle, and understanding, and Dr. Han was incredible. I had my first crown put in. He was knowledgeable about everything from which numbing agents were best to use (I've had reactions to all of them except the one he used), which crown material to use with zero mercury in them, and understood even the homeopathic pain remedies I prefer to use. Everyone there has a great bedside manner and Dr. Han really helped put me at ease with his humor and positive attitude. Fantastic office all around!”

Meredith P.

“5/5 stars! Dr. Han is the best dentist we have ever seen - of the 35+ dentists who have treated us in the past 30 years )we were both in the military)! We are following Dr. Han from his previous dental office over to his new practice - one that will be entirely his own. So excited for the care we expect to receive there... Dr. Han is just that good! Friendly, calming, listens and is highly competent. We even recommended him to my parents, who plan to sign up once Dr. Han's practice opens!”

Camilla B.

Dr. Han and his staff were amazing. He performed a thorough examination. He was up front and I appreciate him for that. Dr. Han has a great bedside manner and really cares for his patients. THANK YOU, Dr. Han!

Hermenigilda E.

Dr. Han is extremely kind and highly skilled as is his assistant. I was nervous due to prior bad experiences with other practices, but upon meeting him, I immediately was put at ease. He fixed my issue, and in doing so, gave me relief from years of discomfort and inflammation.

M. Warco

Dr. Han was phenomenal. My previous dental experiences had been awful and left me with severe PTSD. With Dr. Han I've never felt more reassured or in capable hands. I was talked through every little thing and assured over and over through any process I went through. Permanent dentist office for life.

Mary P.

I'm very pleased with the results of my front tooth dental crown. Thank you, Dr. Han, you did an amazing job it looks so natural and I feel pretty! Your kindness and honesty makes a positive difference.

Mary F.

Always love working with Dr. Han - he is a top-notch dentist, master of his craft, and is always very knowledgeable, never patronizing. I appreciate the fact that he doesn't try to upsell me on unnecessary treatments or procedures, and I can always opt out of things like fluoride if needed. But rest assured, he embraces a mindset of proactive preventive care.

Frequently Asked Questions

Discover the Benefits of Clear Aligners

Am I a good candidate for Invisalign?

If you have an underbite or overbite, or have misaligned, crooked, misshapen, or gapped teeth, Invisalign may be right for you.

Does Invisalign hurt?

There may be some tenderness or discomfort when first wearing your aligners. The pain level can also depend on the tolerance of each patient.

How do I care for my aligners?

The simplest way to keep your aligners clean is to brush them with a toothbrush each time you brush your teeth. If you need to clean them when you’re out and about and don’t have access to your toothbrush, you can also simply rinse the aligners in lukewarm water.

Can I Eat And Drink While Using Invisalign?

The beauty of Invisalign lies in its flexibility and convenience. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners are removable, which means you can take them off when you eat or drink. This eliminates the hassle of food getting stuck in wires or brackets, a common problem with traditional braces. However, it's important to note that while you can drink water with your Invisalign aligners on, it's recommended to remove them when drinking colored or sugary beverages to avoid staining or potential damage. Once you're done eating or drinking, simply clean your teeth and pop the aligners back in. Remember, for effective treatment, it's crucial to wear your aligners for 20-22 hours per day.

How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Take?

Invisalign treatment offers a clear, customizable way to straighten your teeth, and the duration largely depends on your specific needs. It kicks off with an initial visit to Kenmore Family Dental Care, where Dr. Heejo Han will examine your teeth and discuss your smile goals. Using a special scanner, he creates a 3D image of your teeth to design a personalized treatment plan, showing how your teeth will move and estimating the treatment time. For most people, this process takes about 12 to 18 months, though some may see improvements in just a few months if their adjustments are minor.

After the planning stage, you'll receive your first set of custom-made, clear aligners. These aligners are nearly invisible and need to be worn for 22 hours a day, but you can remove them for eating and brushing. Every 6 to 8 weeks, you'll have a quick check-up with Dr. Han to monitor your progress and receive the next set of aligners. These regular appointments are crucial for ensuring your treatment stays on track.

The success of your Invisalign treatment hinges on your commitment to wearing the aligners as recommended. Following Dr. Han's instructions closely and attending your scheduled appointments will help move your teeth into the desired position more efficiently, bringing you closer to achieving the smile you've always wanted in the estimated time frame.

How Often Do I Need To Wear My Invisalign Aligners?

Invisalign aligners are designed to be worn for 20-22 hours per day. They should only be removed for eating, drinking anything other than water, and for brushing and flossing your teeth. Consistent wear is critical for the treatment to be effective. The aligners work by gradually shifting your teeth into their correct positions, and this process requires consistent pressure over time. Not wearing your aligners for the recommended amount of time each day could potentially extend your treatment time. To help you stay on track, Invisalign aligners come with a blue compliance indicator that will fade over time if the aligners are being worn as directed.

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that offers a discreet and convenient way to achieve a straighter smile. If you're considering Invisalign in Alexandria, VA, Kenmore Family Dental Care is here to guide you every step of the way. Dr. Heejo Han and his team are committed to providing personalized care that meets your unique needs and exceeds your expectations.
