Bio

"I love being an orthodontist"! Ever since I was in the sixth grade I wanted to change the world one smile at a time. I grew up in Holyoke Massachusetts and had an expander, braces, extractions and a retainer 40 years ago! I was an accomplished athlete and inducted into the National Honor Society and graguated top in my class. I attended Wheaton College and continued my athletic, academic and artistic passions. Immediately after I graduated from college I attended The University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. In dental school I was vice-president of my class, I worked and participated in various community outreach programs. One of the best experiences of my life was when I did an internship then later a general practice residency at York Hospital. I obtained my post-graduate speciality training in orthodontics from Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia. This three year program exposed me to academic courses at UPENN, orthognathic surgery in the OR, research and an outstanding orthodontic program at the Maxwell S. Fogal Department of Orthodontics. I am most proud of the fact that I was able to start and finish over 50 cases, participate in research projects, publish articles and become American Board of Orthodontics eligable. I enjoy the art and science of creating beautiful smiles for children and adults of ALL ages. My husband is a periodontist and a prosthodontist from UPENN and we have two beautiful and talented children. I still enjoy sports, skiing, gardening and I am passionate about cooking and creating...well anything! But most of all, I am very fortunate to have my faith and my family and a wonderful job being an orthodontist. LynAnn M. Mastaj DMD

Frenectomies : Frenectomies remove the tight attachment between the gums and the lip and also between the tongue and the floor of the mouth. I have seen improvement in mobility of the upper lip and tongue in these cases. Along with the frenectomy why dont you have your son see a speech therapist to help with myofunctional excercises (muscle excercises of the tongue, lips, cheeks, jaw) . You might see an improvement in lisp if he has a wider range of motion of his lip and he excercises it with a professional. Lynann mastaj, dmd.

Flouride : Flouride is toxic in large quanities and harmful to teeth if over injested.Too much flouride can cause flourosis of the teeth which appears as brown and white marks in the enamel. Today flouride is found naturally in some areas of the country and it is also added to some public drinking water supplies. Flouride is widely used in toothpaste, mouthwash, vitamines and household products. An excellent article to verify how much flouride causes harmful effects to teeth was recently published in 2010 by brondtein et al in the journal of clinical toxicology (phila).Dec2010;48(10):979-1178 [medline].

Invisalign : Invisalign aligners should be rinsed with water and brushed daily. Cleaning tablets can be used to clean and brighten aligners. I recommend retainer brite www.Retainerbrite.Com to all my invisalign patients. It kills 99% of 7 common bacteria and leaves the aligners crystal clear. Soak the aligner in tap water, add tablet wait 15 minutes rinse...You are ready to go! good luck.
