For most people who seek out a dentist in Windsor, CT, achieving a healthy, beautiful smile is the reason for choosing to receive orthodontic care. But, as Dr. Garceau knows, straight teeth often function better and are healthier. As a general dentist, Dr. Garceau is able to look at the “big picture” when it comes to your smile and your oral health.

When you choose to receive clear aligner treatment at our Windsor dental office, we will evaluate the health of teeth and gums, as well as listen to your goals and concerns before delivering treatment options. When your treatment is complete, you will have the smile you’ve always dreamed of as well as the confidence to show it off! We want you to feel comfortable throughout your entire Invisalign experience, so Dr. Garceau and our team work hard to make sure that you receive the quality care you deserve.

Orthodontic Treatment with Dr. Garceau

Dr. Garceau offers clear aligner orthodontics with Invisalign. Invisalign aligners are a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable acrylic trays that straighten your teeth like braces. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, Invisalign aligners slowly move teeth to the proper position.

The aligners invisible and removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, this helps to make brushing and flossing less of a hassle. The aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.

Teens and adults in Windsor, CT choose dentist Dr. Roberta Garceaus for their Invisalign treatment. Frequently, adult patients tell us they never had the opportunity to straighten their teeth as a child. Others have had braces but stopped wearing retainers and their teeth shifted. In either case we're committed to helping patients achieve their teeth-aligning goals comfortably and affordably, all while considering their overall oral health.

Before beginning your orthodontic care, Dr. Garceau will evaluate your oral health, discuss all of your options, and provide an estimate for how long your full treatment may take. Please contact our Windsor, CT dental practice to schedule an appointment and learn more about the clear aligner orthodontic treatment we provide.

We are a Certified Invisalign Provider

Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted — without braces. A complimentary consultation with our doctor can determine if Invisalign is right for you.

What is it?

Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you're wearing. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective.

Why would I want it?

Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor's office getting adjustments. Invisalign also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

How does it work?

You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions. You'll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time typically lasts nine to 15 months, and the number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both numbers will vary from case to case.

What is Invisalign?

The Invisalign system is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth and achieve the smile you've always wanted. Invisalign uses advanced 3D computer imaging technology to depict your complete treatment plan, from the initial position of your teeth to the final desired position. Then, a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth — and your teeth only — to move them little by little. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks before being replaced by the next in the series until the final position of your teeth is achieved. Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by Dr. Garceau based on your specific needs.

What are the primary benefits of Invisalign?

Invisalign aligners are clear, making Invisalign a seamless fit with your lifestyle and day-to-day interactions with others. Invisalign aligners are also removable. Unlike braces, you have the flexibility to eat and drink what you want during treatment simply by removing the aligners when you eat. You can also remove the aligners to brush and floss as you normally would for fresh breath and good oral hygiene. Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign treatment does not use metal brackets or wires that could cause irritation to your mouth. In addition, you'll spend less time in the doctor's chair and scheduling appointments, and more time out doing the things you love. Lastly, Invisalign’s technology allows you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start your treatment, so that you can preview how your straight teeth will look once your treatment is complete.

How many patients are in Invisalign treatment?

More than 3,000,000 patients worldwide have been treated with Invisalign. The number of Invisalign smiles grows daily. At your next appointment, we can help answer any questions you might have, and get you started on the smile you've always wanted.
