Invisalign® is a tooth positioning system that’s virtually unseen, extremely predictable in its results, and easily removable for eating, brushing and flossing. Invisalign usually requires less time than conventional braces, and we can even tell you what you’ll look like at given points during treatment.

Invisalign technology is a series of computer generated clear forms or aligners that guide teeth gradually into place. With Invisalign there are no unattractive metal brackets and wires.

There are many benefits to using Invisalign:

  • Fewer dental visits than regular braces
  • Aligners can be removed to eat
  • Healthier for teeth and gums because aligners are removed to brush teeth
  • Greater comfort with no wires or metal brackets

There are a great number of variations with Invisalign, and it all relates to what the treating dentist wants as the final result. Once all the x-rays and photos are scanned in with our Itero 3D scanner, they are emailed to Invisalign technicians who work on your individual case. The Itero 3D scanning is high definition and allows the technicians to fabricate their suggestions for final position of the teeth to the dentist, who may accept or modify their suggestions.

Our dentists and their professional team are preferred providers for Invisalign braces in Gladstone, MO. For over 20 years, Marx Family Dental has also provided traditional orthodontics, and as a result, can blend both technologies when it’s more efficient and effective. We know what system will work best for you, and we are happy to explain our goals, and the reasons for those goals, in plain English, giving you the time and attention you deserve.

“I spent all my childhood with a gap that got the best of myself and my confidence. Now I can’t stop looking in the mirror and loving my smile. I now feel as good on the outside as the inside. I have a new confidence in myself. This changed my life.”


I found Dr. Marx through his website and the great references I found there. I have been phobic about dentists since I had a scary one when I was a child, but have done what was necessary to keep my teeth healthy.

I would like to take this opportunity to speak about Dr. Robert Marx and his dental practice.  I first met Dr. Marx in the worst of circumstances, i.e., I had an abscessed and infected tooth, was in pain, and was absolutely terrified.  I found his practice purely by chance and he took emergency cases and… Read more “Ramona Pansegrau”

I have a beautiful smile thanks to Dr. Marx and the staff. They have expertly matched shape, color and size for the perfect veneers. They were extremely patient during the process and had my greatest desires in mind to achieve this. I am very impressed by their skill, equipment and talent.

Dr. Marx and his staff are the most excellent group of people I have ever met! Very professional, knowledgeable and friendly, absolutely caring in every aspect of their service.

“You provided me with the improved dental appearance without any fears coming to fruition. My “smile” is better than when I was a teenager, as everyone has told me. I get in arguments about my birth date – “you can’t be that old”. Just what a woman loves to hear. Thank you.”


“It was great to get all my treatment done in one office. I did not have to go somewhere else to get my implants done. And what surprised me the most was that the implant procedure was totally painless. I now get so many compliments on my smile.”
