What Problems Can Invisalign Teen Correct?


Invisalign Teen is a great alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment or metal braces for teenagers. If you’ve been apprehensive about the thought of metal braces, than Invisalign Teen is the perfect choice. During your initial visit at our office near Wayland, Dr. Deborah Himelhoch and the team at Smiles in Framingham Orthodontics will take an impression of your teeth as they are now and digitize it. Using special software, Smiles in Framingham Orthodontics will look at the current positioning of your teeth and compare it to the way your teeth should look after getting Invisalign Teen near Wayland.


Invisalign Teen treatment, which consists of a series of aligners that you switch out approximately every two weeks, can help patients with crowded teeth, crossbites, overbites, underbites and almost all orthodontic problems. Invisalign Teen will gradually shifts your teen’s teeth into place, creating a beautiful, confident smile. During your orthodontic treatment with Dr. Deborah Himelhoch and the Smiles in Framingham Orthodontics team, patients wear their aligners approximately 22 hours a day and take them out during meals, when they’re brushing and flossing, and for sports that require mouthguards. With Invisalign Teen, cleaning your teeth and eating is a snap since your teen can easily remove your aligners! In addition, since the aligners are clear, people will barely notice that your teen even has them on and that their teeth are steadily getting straighter!

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
