Invisalign®

For an orthodontic treatment that is comfortable, discreet and convenient, Invisalign® clear aligners should be your first choice. There are many different brands of clear aligners — such as SureSmile®, ClearCorrect, Smilelove™, byte® and Candid — but our team trusts the tried-and-true Invisalign® system above all others. The Invisalign treatment system is sophisticated and advanced, and our team is experienced in helping patients with all kinds of orthodontic problems have a great experience with Invisalign.

Invisalign clear aligners are not simply molded by a machine and given to you without your input and participation. Online companies that go off of nothing but a grainy cellphone camera picture of your smile cannot give you the personalized and clinically-effective treatment that our team can with the Invisalign system.

Invisalign clear aligners are safe, effective and discreet, and you might even forget you have them in sometimes! This orthodontic option allows you to continue living your life as you desire without the added stress and work that traditional braces bring with them. You can take out your aligners to eat and take care of your teeth, as well as for photo opportunities, such as graduations, weddings and any group photos.

If you are interested in this orthodontic option, do not delay. Our orthodontist, Dr. Richard Risinger, can tell you more about Invisalign in Glastonbury, Connecticut, so call Risinger Orthodontics at 860-633-8321 for your free consultation. Each member of our experienced team is excited to help you achieve the smile of your dreams, and we are happy to answer any other questions you have before, during or after your treatment.

Invisalign® aligners are a great choice for patients who are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option for straightening their smile. Rather than using metal brackets and wires like traditional braces, the Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made, computer-generated plastic aligners to straighten teeth. Each set of aligners is designed to make small changes to the alignment of the teeth. As you switch sets of aligners about every two weeks, your teeth will gradually and gently move to their proper positions. You will also visit our office on a regular basis during treatment to make certain that your smile is progressing as planned.

In general, Invisalign aligners can be used to treat the same orthodontic issues that are normally treated with braces. Our orthodontist may recommend Invisalign treatment to correct:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gapped and spaced teeth
  • Certain problems with the bite, such as an overbite, open bite, underbite or crossbite

During your initial visit, we will determine whether you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatment. This treatment is often a good choice for adult patients and others who are interested in a virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. In addition to being discreet, Invisalign aligners are very comfortable because they are custom made from smooth, thin plastic. The aligners are removable as well, which allows you to easily remove them as needed to eat, brush and floss. We welcome you to call or visit us today to learn more about Invisalign clear aligners.

Invisalign Costs

No two smiles are alike and because of that, the length of treatment and the costs for Invisalign vary from person to person. When you visit Dr. Risinger for your consultation, be sure to talk with him about the cost of your Invisalign treatment. It may be covered by your insurance, and you may be able to pay for it with a health savings or flexible spending account.
