Invisible Braces

If you’re thinking about Invisalign clear aligners, your dentist brings you in for a consultation. We provide an exam, take x-rays if needed, and answer all your questions during this visit. Then your dentist will let you know whether you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, and a member of our team will talk to you about costs or financing.

Invisalign in Urbandale is a sequence of clear aligners custom-made from impressions of your teeth. You move to the next aligner in the sequence every few weeks until you have completed treatment. As the weeks go by, you’ll notice your teeth moving into their proper positions.

With Invisalign, unlike traditional orthodontics, you can remove your aligners to eat your meals and brush your teeth. Your aligners are also transparent, and most people won’t even realize you’re wearing them.

The benefits of Invisalign clear orthodontics include ease of wear and an aligned smile at the end of treatment.

Northpark Dental is proud to offer Invisalign invisible braces for patients who desire a straighter smile. Invisalign is unique because it uses highly reliable clear aligner trays to straighten teeth in teens and adults alike. Invisalign can improve the following aesthetic and functional smile imperfections and more:

  • Crooked teeth 
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Open bites 
  • Crossbites
  • Gapped teeth
  • Combination of baby and permanent teeth

Customized for each person’s unique smile, Invisalign is comfortable, sleek, and virtually invisible. No one may even notice you’re wearing them! Also, Invisalign trays are easily removable, so you can thoroughly clean your teeth and comfortably enjoy your favorite foods. 

How Invisalign Works 

Once your Invisalign dentist takes an impression of your smile, we send that impression to an Invisalign lab so they can create your custom aligner trays. 

The trays work in sequential order, and they are usually changed out every two weeks. Each new set of aligner trays are slightly closer to your ideal smile, gradually guiding your teeth into the desired position. 

Invisalign treatment is a faster, low-maintenance alternative to traditional metal braces. Many patients can even enjoy their new smile in a matter of months!
