Adult Orthodontics from Your Local Tacoma Orthodontist

In this day in age, more adults and more adults are realizing it is never too late to attain the smile of their dreams. In fact, The American Association of Orthodontics reports that one out of every five orthodontic patients are an adult. At Douglas Knight Orthodontics, Dr. Douglas J. Knight and his knowledgeable team proudly serve the Tacoma, Washington area and firmly believe that orthodontic braces are not just for children and teens. Tooth alignment can be changed at any age. Together and with the assistance of orthodontic treatments such as traditional metal braces and Invisalign, you and Dr. Knight can work to achieve your smile goals!

The Benefits of Adult Orthodontics

It is important to remember that orthodontic treatment not only will improve your smile aesthetically, but it will also improve the health of your teeth and gums overall. Seeking orthodontic treatment as an adult is particularly vital when trying to avoid common dental problems such as:

  • Severe tooth decay
  • Gum and bone loss
  • Irregular wear of the tooth enamel
  • TMJ/TMD pain

If the gums and bone structure are not at their optimal health to begin orthodontic treatment right away, don’t worry. At your first visit, Dr. Knight performs a comprehensive oral examination that will not only determine your oral health status but, with the information gathered, will also set the foundation of your unique and customized orthodontic treatment plan. Dr. Knight will cover all concerns as well as suggested treatments. As previously stated, we want you to have the smile you’ve always wanted—let’s work together to realize that dream!
