Orthodontics for Adults

While most people think that only children and teenagers visit our orthodontist, the fact is that adults of all ages are opting for straighter smiles. Dr. Richard Risinger provides adult orthodontics in Glastonbury, Connecticut, and you can call Risinger Orthodontics at 860-633-8321 to schedule your complimentary initial consultation.

If you have been avoiding orthodontic treatment because you do not want the hassle and extra work of traditional braces, then consider Invisalign® clear aligners! This discreet orthodontic option can straighten your smile without your friends, family or colleagues knowing, allowing you to continue your lifestyle without being self-conscious or uncomfortable. You can even remove the clear aligners when you want to eat, take a picture or brush and floss, meaning you can keep all of your normal habits.

If you are mostly happy with your smile and think orthodontics is just about improving the aesthetic quality of your teeth, then think again! Orthodontic treatment helps with so much more than your appearance, helping you to chew, speak and take care of your teeth better. Well-aligned teeth also give plaque and tartar fewer places to hide, making it easier to preserve your dental health.

Even if you only have one or a few problems with the alignment of your smile, we can help! Our orthodontic options are always customized to your smile, and if you only want to fix one tooth that is out of place or your entire smile, we are here to assist you. If you have any further questions about orthodontic treatment, please contact a member of our team today!

Do you worry that you are too old to straighten your teeth? You are never too old for orthodontics! In fact, about 25% of orthodontic patients are now adults. At our practice, we want you to know that a straight, healthy, beautiful smile is within your reach — no matter your age. We offer a number of orthodontic treatments and are happy to help you find the option that matches your personal needs and desires. In addition to traditional metal braces, more discreet options are often available to help you maintain a natural, professional appearance while you straighten your teeth. During your initial visit with our orthodontist, we will review all of your treatment options and help you choose the one you need for optimal results.

Most patients understand that a straighter smile is more aesthetic; however, not everyone knows that properly aligned teeth can help to improve your oral health and function as well. Orthodontic treatment can help you avoid severe tooth decay, gum and bone loss, TMJ (TMD) pain, and the irregular wear of tooth enamel. To learn more about the benefits of adult orthodontic treatment, we welcome you to call or visit us today. We look forward to helping you achieve a straighter, healthier smile!
