Like glaciers and tectonic plates, teeth are slowly yet surely on the move as they attempt to turn their host’s mouth into frozen tundra and then rip it apart like a bite-size Pangaea. Defeat devious teeth with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get an initial orthodontic examination, x-rays, and impressions (a $295 value), plus $500 toward Invisalign or traditional orthodontia, from Dr. Rick Risinger and Dr. Richard Risinger at Risinger Orthodontics in Glastonbury.
An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of mouth terrain, paves the way for calibrated teeth sheaths designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of traditional orthodontia. The process eschews braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $500 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as eight or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 6–20 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
Dr. Rick Risinger and Dr. Richard Risinger also realign patients' dental dimensions with traditional orthodontic options, including braces made of metal or ceramic. Braces, which are bonded to teeth, gently shift wayward bicuspids into line over the course of one to three years. Whether you opt for Invisalign or traditional orthodontia, a wall of windows brightens the waiting room, and the amiable staff can offer you temporary iPad privileges, video games, and magazines while you wait.
