Orthodontic Treatments

Family Orthodontics offers our Tacoma patients the most advanced treatment options available in the industry today.

Our areas of focus include the correction of bite problems and tooth crowding, as well as aesthetic and structural straightening of the teeth. And to support our commitment to your lifelong healthy smile, we also offer preventive treatments.

Although the foundation of orthodontia still involves braces, today’s options are a significant improvement over the “metal mouth” of yore. For a less-noticeable approach, you can select from clear or ceramic braces, or the revolutionary Invisalign system.

Even traditional metal braces are worlds away from those we used previously. With smaller brackets and thinner wires, today’s braces are more comfortable than ever. Adjustments are also simpler and quicker, with most taking only 15 to 30 minutes.

Our recommended approach for children’s orthodontics is based on a two-phase treatment plan. Through early prevention and preliminary treatment, we can minimize the necessity of any future orthodontic work to perfect your child’s beautiful smile.

Once you or your child has completed orthodontic treatment, we continue our commitment to your smile with retention and maintenance treatments.
