Why Braces?

Why should you get braces? First, any alignment problems you or a family member may be having will not get better on their own. Even simple issues, like a single tooth that is misaligned or scraping another, can slowly transform into larger problems. If you have discovered a problem with the alignment of your teeth or any other orthodontic problem, it is best to get started on orthodontic treatment as soon as possible.

Braces are a very reliable way to improve your smile and can be especially effective for younger children. There is a reason we are still using braces today! Over the years, braces have evolved and improved, and they are still one of the absolute best and most reliable treatment options for all kinds of orthodontic problems. Braces are especially effective the earlier they are used. Since the teeth and jawbone are still developing, it is much easier to guide the teeth into their proper alignment, meaning that treatment will be shorter and more efficient.

Our orthodontist, Dr. Richard Risinger, will be happy to see you or your child for a free initial consultation for braces in Glastonbury, Connecticut. We will work with you to understand the state of your or your child’s smile and what the next step is. If we recommend orthodontic treatment, we will teach you about the different options that are available and what would be best for your unique situation. Call Risinger Orthodontics at 860-633-8321 today for an appointment!

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry focused on correcting irregularities of the teeth and jaw, especially in how they align and fit together. There are several orthodontic treatment options available, and our team will make certain that you receive the one that is right for your personal needs. Through orthodontics, we can correct teeth that are:

  • Misaligned
  • Crowded
  • Gapped and spaced

We can also correct problems with the alignment of the bite, including overbites, underbites, open bites and crossbites. Orthodontic treatment is faster, more comfortable and more effective than in years past, making it a great time to straighten your smile.

While many patients think of orthodontics as an effective way to improve the aesthetics of their smiles, orthodontic treatment can also be very beneficial to your oral health and function. Correctly aligned teeth are generally at a lower risk for dental problems, such as tooth decay and gum disease. Orthodontics can also make it easier for you to chew, eat and speak properly.
