Invisalign Natick MA

These clear aligners are convenient, discreet, and removable by the wearer. They must be worn conscientiously, however, to be effective. Commitment and a few handy tools taught to you by the Smiles in Framingham team will guarantee Invisalign patients of Dr. Deborah Himelhoch a successful treatment outcome. However it’s important to know what Invisalign can and can’t fix.

Invisalign can correct:
1. Gapped Teeth: Gapped teeth can occur because of abnormal growth in the jawbone or when existing teeth spread and move to fill the space where a tooth or teeth are missing.

2. Overbite: An overbite or “overjet” is when the upper row of teeth extend out an angle and lie in front of the lower row of teeth when the patient’s mouth is closed. An overbite can cause pain in the jaw or even gum disease.

3. Underbite: Underbites occur when the upper row of teeth bites behind the lower row of teeth. Usually, underbites are caused by an overgrown lower jaw or an underdeveloped upper jaw.

4. Open Bite: Open bites occur when the upper row of teeth and the lower row of teeth do not meet in the middle of your smile. This can be caused by a misaligned or abnormal jaw or by thumb sucking.

5. Overcrowded: When all of the teeth cannot fit into the mouth in correct position. While not typically painful, overcrowded teeth can lead to an accumulation of food, plaque, and tartar, which may lead to tooth decay or gum disease.

6. Crossbite: Crossbite occurs when both the upper and the lower rows of teeth are misaligned in relation to each other. Crossbite can cause abnormal wear on the teeth and lead to bone loss or gum disease.

Am I Too Old for Invisalign in Natick, MA?

Early intervention for orthodontic issues can ensure long-lasting and effective results throughout a patient’s life. Dr. Deborah Himelhoch and the team at Smiles in Framingham understands why some are concerned about the appearance of their smiles. Adults seeking Invisalign for patients in Natick MA who have foregone or avoided orthodontic treatment may regret later in life that they did not address their situations sooner. Smiles in Framingham serves patients of all ages that live in Middlesex County MA.

There are, however, no age restrictions for orthodontic treatment or good oral health care. In fact, a growing number of adults are considering treatment with Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign straightens teeth gradually through a progressive series of plastic aligners that gently move teeth within the mouth. Adults prefer treatment with Invisalign because Invisalign is easy to wear, removeable, and practically invisible to the casual observer.

Anyone 7-years old or older can receive treatment with Invisalign. (Seven-years old is a good age for children to have an initial consultation with an orthodontist.) Good oral health care habits need to be maintained while being treated with Invisalign, and there are a few things you’ll have to be conscientious of.

The Invisalign process is simple. A course of treatment is developed using a computer-aided design program, and the Invisalign clear aligner trays are created specifically for the patient and their treatment goals. Orthodontic treatment with Dr. Deborah Himelhoch and Invisalign is as simple as wearing Invisalign. Once you start wearing the first set of Invisalign trays, the aligners work to exert a gentle pressure on the teeth to move them into their optimal position in the mouth.

Invisalign treatment is discreet. The Invisalign aligners are made of a clear thermoplastic material. They are virtually invisible to the casual observer. No one will be able to tell you are undergoing orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth. Invisalign is also removable by the wearer to eat, clean, floss, and clean the trays. Dr. Deborah Himelhoch recommends avoiding acidic, hard, or sticky foods and advises against smoking, drinking coffee, tea, and/or alcohol. These substances can stain or yellow the clear plastic of the aligners.Don’t forget to take the trays off before eating, but feel free to eat the foods you normally would. A regular schedule of dental cleanings should be conscientiously kept when being treated with Invisalign. Because the Invisalign tray fits snugly over the wearer’s teeth, it can trap food debris against and between the teeth. Successful treatment with Invisalign is easy and effective and requires little of the wearer beyond ordinary oral hygiene and cleaning of the trays.
