Dr. Macks' office in Tacoma, WA offers Invisalign® to his new and existing patients.
Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening your teeth. The aligners are custom-made for your teeth only. They are made of smooth and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. In time, through the use of Invisalign®, your teeth will gradually shift into their proper place. No more metal brackets, no wires to tighten and no more major discomfort.
As a patient of Dr. Macks, you will achieve a great smile with little to no interference with your daily life or routine. The most important part is that most people won’t recognize that you have these aligners in your mouth.
Here is how it works:
- Dr. Macks will create a customized treatment plan just for you. He will create a 3-D image of your teeth and show you how your teeth will move within each stage of this dental treatment.
- You will wear your aligners throughout the day but take them off when you eat, brush or floss. As you wear each set of these custom-made aligners, your teeth will gradually begin to shift into place.
- Approximately every two weeks, you will wear a new set of aligners. The process takes you to the next step gradually. Dr. Macks will see you every six weeks to monitor your progress.
