A Beautiful Smile With Tacoma Invisalign Treatment

When it comes to your smile, you have various options for orthodontic treatment. At Douglas Knight Orthodontics, we only believe in providing the best. Invisalign is a teeth straightening process that allows you to attain the smile you want, without the obvious wires and brackets of regular braces. In fact, the clear aligners used are virtually undetectable, so nobody has to know you are undergoing orthodontic care.

How Will Invisalign Help You?

When you choose Invisalign, our Tacoma orthodontist will take a look at your teeth with 3D imaging technology. This allows us to create clear aligners that form perfectly to your teeth, yet are removable for when you eat or brush. One of the major benefits of the Invisalign system is you don’t have to visit the dentist to have them readjusted. Every couple weeks you simply swap them out for the next set in the series of treatment. Depending on the doctor’s recommendation and how much correction you need, you may have up to 48 aligners, but could also only need 12.

Patients who have chosen this method of treatment have experienced:

·       Comfort – There is nothing about Invisalign that is uncomfortable. They fit on the teeth and do not irritate any portion of the mouth.

·       Discretion – Being able to discreetly straighten your teeth is important for many patients; particularly our adult patients.

·       Flexibility – Unlike metal or porcelain braces, you won’t break anything if you eat something hard or sticky. Instead, you simply take the aligner out of your mouth, eat, brush, floss, and return the aligners to position.
