  • Am I responsible? To have Invisalign you need to have the responsibility to care for traditional metal braces and then some. Not only do you have to keep them clean, but you need to know where they are at all times. Because Invisalign is removable and clear, they can easily be misplaced when not in your mouth and responsibility is needed so they are not thrown out by accident. It is also important to have responsibility when remembering to put them back in your mouth after you take them out for eating or brushing. Finally, because Invisalign is removable, your sets change every two weeks and it is important to be responsible enough to remember when you need a new set.
  • How much work do I need done? Usually, Invisalign is recommended by orthodontists to those who do not have as much work needed to be done. Invisalign is great at fixing smaller issues such as over or underbites, overcrowding, gapped teeth, or general spacing issues. However, more major work such as raising and lowering teeth, large tooth spacings, and teeth that are extremely angled are better suited for .
  • Will Invisalign fit into my lifestyle? One major benefit to Invisalign is that it is virtually invisible. Because of this, Invisalign is a great fit for those who are constantly in front of people showing off their smile. Another benefit to Invisalign being clear and removable is that you can keep your diet and foods the same without the constrictions of traditional metal braces. However, you need to take your Invisalign out every time you eat. For many this is a draw back if you are out to dinner with friends, family, or work and have to take out your aligners.
  • How much time and money can I spend on my orthodontic treatment? The benefit to Invisalign is that it is usually on teeth for a much shorter timespan. Tradition braces are usually on patients for around two years, while Invisalign is closer to a year or a year at a half. However, Invisalign appointments are more frequent than appointments, being about six months apart from one another. While these check-ups are usually short, it is important to decide if you can allot that amount of time to make it to the office near Southborough. When it comes to money, Invisalign is more expensive than traditional metal braces are. Depending on how much work needs to be done on your teeth, can cost between $1,200 and $3,000. Invisalign has a starting price tag of around $5,000.00. Do not let the price of these treatments scare you away however. Smiles in Framingham has specific payment plans which can be worked out according to the individual patient.

To all my wonderful patients and their families:

 

The greatest pleasures of my career are watching children grow strong and healthy and seeing smiles become more beautiful. It has been a tremendous privilege to be a part of that growth and transformation. Now, however, it is time for me to slow down and share the care of my patients.

 

Starting in September 2022, Smiles in Framingham will merge with Moynihan Dental Specialists. I will remain with the practice, but will reduce my hours and give up administrative responsibilities. The wonderful team of people you and I have come to rely on will be staying. They will continue to help care for you. There will also be new faces, new people who will get to know and care for and about you.

 

Dr. Michael Moynihan is a second generation dentist and orthodontist practicing in Framingham. Dr. Mike, as he is known, is on the faculty of Boston University in the department of orthodontics. We spent two years as teaching partners supervising the Boston University orthodontic residents as they treated special needs children at Franciscan Hospital for Children. It was during that time I came to appreciate both how skilled Dr. Mike is and how much he cares about his patients. I retired from teaching prior to the pandemic, but Dr. Mike still puts much of his time and energy into teaching the next generation of orthodontists.

 

I met Dr. Daniel Moynihan when he was my student in 2017. Even at that time he was one of my most conscientious students. He cares deeply about all of his patients and I am proud to be associated with him. Dr. Dan is highly skilled with all aspects of orthodontics, including treatment using Invisalign and other aligners.

 

Dr. Katherine Moynihan and Dr. Christine Chiao are other members of the Moynihan team. Dr. Katherine Moynihan finished her orthodontic training at Boston University in 2021. Dr. Christine Chiao is a pediatric dentist, who also teaches at the Boston University School of Dental Medicine.

 

Life is an adventure with many chapters, twists, and turns. I enter this chapter of my life looking forward to what comes next and feeling some sadness that this phase of my life is changing. For now, we will be keeping all appointments as scheduled. We will contact you individually about any appointment changes. All orthodontic contracts will be honored with care provided by the orthodontists. I have every confidence that the doctors of Moynihan Dental Specialists will provide you with excellent care for many years to come.

 

My very best wishes to all of you,

 

Dr. Deborah Himelhoch
