Tips for Choosing an Invisalign Provider

Most of us are not born with that red-carpet-ready celebrity smile. In fact, most well-known celebrities are not born with their red-carpet smiles either. However, that fantastic smile is now within reach near Hopkinton MA with the help Dr. Deborah Himelhoch and the team at Smiles in Framingham.

 Invisalign clear aligners

Adults are often reluctant to wear braces as a method of orthodontic treatment. Dr. Deborah Himelhoch can prescribe treatment with Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign is virtually invisible, are removable by the wearer, and causes less irritation for the wearer than traditional methods for straightening teeth.

 What can Invisalign do for me?

Invisalign is the clear alternative to braces that can help you get the smile you’ve always wanted. The Invisalign treatment option is available for anyone who is a candidate for and can be used to treat all types of orthodontic issues. However, before you decide on a treatment plan with Invisalign, it is important to contact an orthodontist near Hopkinton MA and ask their team these important questions:

  1. Are you certified by Invisalign?
  2. How long have you been using Invisalign to treat your patients?
  3. Do you prefer to use Invisalign or braces in my or my child’s case?
  4. Do you use the latest advancements in technology (like Invisalign) to obtain the best results?
  5. Do you have before-and-after pictures of your patients who have used Invisalign?

The Invisalign system, using a 3D computer imaging system, creates precise scans of your bite. The Smiles in Framingham team will then use those scans to design your personal Invisalign aligners for each step as your treatment progresses.
