Braces are perhaps the most well-known and iconic type of orthodontic treatment, and that is for good reason! Braces have been around in one form or another since the ancient times, when Roman and Greek doctors would help their metal fixtures work by pushing on their patients’ teeth with their own hands!

Thankfully, orthodontic technology has improved vastly since those times, and we can completely rely on the braces themselves to smoothly and completely align your smile. Our experienced orthodontist, Dr. Richard Risinger, can provide braces in Glastonbury, Connecticut, for patients of all ages and all walks of life. Braces have been steadily improving over the last century, and what we offer is wildly different from even the braces your parents or grandparents would have worn! Our braces are faster, more efficient and more comfortable than ever before, and we know that you will not regret choosing them.

Deciding to receive braces is still a big decision, though, and we are here to help you learn and understand your treatment options not only after you begin aligning your smile but before too! Call Risinger Orthodontics at 860-633-8321 today to schedule your complimentary initial consultation and learn more about braces and the other orthodontic options we offer, such as ceramic braces and Invisalign® clear aligners.

Braces are an orthodontic treatment option that can help you achieve a smile that is straighter and healthier. One of the most common orthodontic treatments available, braces work to improve your smile by gradually, gently realigning your teeth. Braces consist of a system of metal brackets, wires and bands. The brackets are attached to the front of your teeth and are connected to each other through the use of a metal wire and bands. As we adjust the wire, the braces guide your teeth to their ideal positions in your smile. Ceramic braces are also often available, which are the same color as your teeth for a more discreet orthodontic option.

If you have ever wanted your smile to be straighter and more attractive, braces may be right for you. With braces, we are able to correct orthodontic issues such as:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Problems with the bite, including crossbite, open bite, underbite and overbite

During your treatment, you will visit our office on a regular basis so we can make sure that your braces are adjusted as needed to continue progressing toward a straighter, healthier smile. Our skilled orthodontist and team will help you reach all of your oral health and appearance goals through personalized, high-quality care. To learn more about braces, please contact our office today.
