Creating Beautiful Smiles


At Northalsted Dental Spa, our philosophy is that it’s never too late to get the straight, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. Whether you’ve never undergone orthodontic treatment, or the results of prior orthodontics have been compromised, we can help you achieve a flawless smile through Invisalign therapy.

Invisalign is a form of orthodontic treatment that gently and discreetly aligns and straightens teeth. Our talented dentist, Dr. Michael Griffin, has many years of experience helping patients achieve beautiful smiles with Invisalign.

Invisalign Braces in Chicago – What to Expect

The first step to undergoing Invisalign treatment is visiting us for a consultation. During your initial consultation with our team at Northalsted Dental Spa, we’ll perform a dental exam and discuss your smile goals. Once we’ve determined you’re a good candidate for Invisalign, we’ll take X-­rays of your teeth and impressions of your mouth. Those images and molds will be sent to a laboratory to outline a customized treatment plan.

We will also discuss the realistic expectations for your treatment, including how your teeth will be moved throughout every stage. Each stage comes with a different set of custom-made aligners that gradually move your teeth into the proper positions.

Invisalign aligners are made to fit comfortably in your mouth so you can wear them throughout the day. The aligners are made of a clear, durable plastic, making Invisalign a great choice for individuals who are self conscious about wearing noticeable metal braces. Invisalign is also more comfortable than traditional braces, as the trays can be removed during meals and for brushing your teeth.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign works by slowly moving crooked, gapped, and misaligned teeth into proper alignment over time. The clear aligner trays gradually move teeth into place just like traditional braces. As weeks go by and the alignment process progresses, your trays are switched out for a new set. With each set, you get closer to reaching your smile goals.

How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Take?

Treatment time varies depending on every patient’s unique needs and smile goals. However, many patients enjoy the benefits of Invisalign in as little as 6-12 months.

Using our Invisalign treatment simulation, we’ll be able to give you a complete 3-D view of the anticipated results. The system allows us to view potential changes tooth by tooth. You’ll be amazed at what your new smile is going to look like before we even start treatment!

The Benefits of Invisalign

Invisalign offers results consistent with traditional orthodontics and addresses a range of concerns. Invisalign can treat issues like overbite, underbite, crooked teeth, protruding teeth, and gaps between teeth.

Although the results of Invisalign are just as beneficial for your oral health as those achieved with traditional orthodontics, the Invisalign experience is very different.

Some benefits of Invisalign include:

  • Invisalign aligners are nearly undetectable.

  • Aligners are removable for eating, brushing, and flossing, unlike traditional metal braces.

  • Invisalign aligners don’t snag and irritate soft oral tissues.

  • Invisalign aligners don’t come with metal brackets or bands that can break.

  • Invisalign aligners are smooth to the touch and comfortable to wear.

  • The cost of Invisalign in Chicago is typically comparable to that of traditional orthodontics.

  • Invisalign therapy typically takes less time to garner results than metal braces.

Invisalign therapy is easily integrated into a range of lifestyles. Invisalign seamlessly blends with your daily activities and habits. For example, if you have a job where you meet with clients on a regular basis, you don’t have to worry about metal braces being the first thing they see when you choose Invisalign.

The Difference Between Invisalign and Metal Braces

The biggest differences between Invisalign and traditional braces are how noticeable and comfortable the trays are in comparison. Some other differences include:

  • Orthodontic treatment can typically take longer with traditional braces than Invisalign.

  • Invisalign treatment uses removable trays to straighten teeth, while metal braces can only be removed by a dental professional.

  • Invisalign trays are often more comfortable than braces because they can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing.

  • It’s easier to maintain good oral hygiene when you have Invisalign compared to traditional braces.

  • Invisalign is much less noticeable than metal braces.

  • Invisalign is safer for patients who are cavity prone.
