If you’re not already familiar with Invisalign braces, we at Pacific Family Dentistry are pleased to tell you all the benefits that they have to offer, while eliminating the drawbacks that are part of wearing traditional metal braces.
Instead of wearing just one set of braces that need frequent adjustments, the way Invisalign works is that you have multiple braces, or aligners. Each one is designed to serve a specific part of the overall scheme of moving your teeth into a more ideal position as prescribed by our Tacoma WA dentist. You wear an aligner for two weeks, and then discard it in favor of the next one. It’s simple, easy to use, and best of all, Invisalign braces don’t show when you wear them. You won’t have to feel self-conscious about how you look, because you won’t look any different. No one else knows you have anything on your teeth unless you tell them. The clear plastic construction of Invisalign makes it comfortable. There is no soreness or irritation to contend with. And being removable, you just take our your aligner when it’s time to eat, brush, or floss. Enjoy your favorite foods, even the crunchy ones. There are absolutely no restrictions. Our Tacoma WA dentist just takes digital photos (no messy impressions) and uses the 3-D computer technology of Invisalign to design your aligners, which are then created in our office, with no outsourcing required. Depending on your unique circumstances, you will need as few as 12 or as many as 48 aligners to complete your treatment. Come in only every six weeks for a progress checkup. That’s all there is to it.
