Smile Without Missing a Beat
Invisalign for Teens
As a teenager, the last thing you want is to feel self-conscious about your smile. Traditional metal braces can be embarrassing, and that’s why more and more teens are choosing Invisalign clear aligners for their orthodontic treatment. At Gig Harbor & Tacoma Orthodontics, we offer Invisalign specifically for teenage patients.
Invisalign for Adults
Invisalign is the clear alternative to metal braces for adults. And it’s been proven to be effective in clinical research. Invisalign is made with 3-D computer imaging technology and has been successful in treating over 4 million patients worldwide. The Invisalign system is virtually invisible and has helped people achieve amazing smiles.

As an older adult, I noticed my teeth were shifting and I knew that was not good. I love my Invisalign because no one can see them! The tray system is so easy! Invisalign has improved my bite, helped my TMJ pain, and helped with the ringing in my ear. Best of all, I know I am improving my health and Invisalign looks and feels great! Thank you, Dr. Patra!

Every smile is unique. Your first appointment will include a complimentary consultation to discuss your treatment goals where Dr. Patra will recommend a solution crafted explicitly for your smile. No two smiles are alike. Your Invisalign prescription will be fully customized to you.
How often do I need to be seen in the office?
We see you in the office every 6-10 weeks to make sure tooth movements are progressing as anticipated.
Is Invisalign as effective as traditional braces?
With certain cases, and if worn as prescribed, Invisalign can be equally as effective as braces.
How does Invisalign work?
Each aligner will gently and gradually shift your teeth into place until you reach your beautiful new smile.
What about the other clear aligner services I’ve heard about? Can I use those?
Not all clear aligner systems are created equal. You may have been bombarded daily with advertisements from competitive systems offering “at-home” solutions at reduced costs. Invisalign remains the gold standard in clear aligner treatment, using the most advanced technologies combined with a history of proven results to make sure patients achieve the best results possible. You can trust your smile to Invisalign.
