There may be some instances in which a patient needs more care than is available from more traditional orthodontic treatments. If a patient has severe issues with their bite or severe malocclusions (problems with the upper and lower teeth meeting properly) or abnormalities with the structure of their jaws, our orthodontist may suggest surgical orthodontics or orthognathic surgery in Glastonbury, Connecticut. If you would like to meet with Dr. Richard Risinger, call Risinger Orthodontics at 860-633-8321, and a member of our team will be happy to help you plan your visit.

We understand that the prospect of surgery can be a bit daunting, and we do not want you to avoid the care you need because of the cost of your treatment. We are happy to help you get the most out of your insurance benefits as well as work with you to help create your own payment plan to fit with your budget.

Preparation for and recovery from surgery will vary from person to person. Whatever treatment you have done, our orthodontist will make sure that you are prepared for your procedure. Be sure to follow our instructions for what to do before your surgery and be sure to take care and also follow the recovery plan our team will make with you. Doing so will help you recover as fast as possible and ensure your treatment stays safe and keeps your smile healthy.
