At Smiles In Farmingham we are committed to providing the highest quality orthodontic care including braces and Invisalign in Farmingham, Southborough, and the surrounding Massachusetts areas.

As a certified Invisalign provider, Dr. Himelhoch will ensure that your treatment process is in the hands of the area’s top specialist.

How Much Does Invisalign Cost?

There are many factors that determine your Invisalign cost: how extensive the issues are that you want corrected, how long your treatment plan will last, and the specific treatment details prescribed by the doctor.

We accept most major insurance providers, which can offer the benefit of personal reduced costs.  We also accept most major credit cars in addition to offering flexible payment plans that fit your budget, and payment arrangements to match your needs.

What Is Invisalign?

The Invisalign system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Invisalign uses advanced 3D computer imaging technology to depict your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. Then, a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series until the final position of your teeth is achieved. Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by your doctor based on your specific needs.

Invisalign Teen

Why make orthodontic treatment worse then it has to be? Invisalign Teen offers the benefits and results of having braces, without the mouth full of metal and limitations that come with it.  These clear aligners are removable, allowing teens to continue enjoying the foods they love like pizza and popcorn.  They are also comfortable and durable so they will never get in the way with extracurricular activities or social events such as sports, band practice, prom, or yearbook pictures.

Invisalign Vs. Braces

Although the traditional braces cost can be slightly cheaper then the Invisalign cost in some cases, Invisalign offers advantages that many of our patients consider priceless.  Made to be completely removable whenever necessary, allowing you to continue enjoying your favorite foods and drinks, and making brushing, flossing, and cleaning much easier.  These clear aligners are made of smooth plastic for comfort, eliminating bulky and annoying brackets and elastics.  They are also extremely durable to reduce your number of orthodontist visits during treatment.

Other Treatment Options

  • Traditional metal braces – the most common type, made of high grade stainless steel brackets and archwires.
  • Self-ligating braces – made up of the same materials as traditional braces but do not require the use of elastics.
  • Ceramic braces – made up of clear materials to blend in with your natural tooth color.
  • Lingual braces – hidden behind your teeth making them “invisible” when you smile.

When’s The Right Time?

Early treatment is recommended around age 7 by The American Association of Orthodontists.  The goal of early treatment is to evaluate needs, correct the growth of the jaw, and fix certain bite problems.  Early treatment also helps to make room for permanent teeth to come in properly, lessening the chance of extractions in the future.

Many adults make the choice to receive treatment because they understand the importance of maintaining their health, and they want to feel better about their appearance.  We understand that children and adults have different needs, and require a different level of attention and care.  It is never too late to take the right steps to the smile you have always wanted.

Benefits

For most people, achieving a healthy, beautiful smile is the reason for receiving orthodontic care. If you’re self-conscious about your smile, correcting your concerns with braces or Invisalign will greatly improve the way you look and feel.  When your treatment is complete, you will have the smile you’ve always dreamed of and the confidence to show it off!

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
