Like glaciers and tectonic plates, teeth are slowly yet surely on the move as they attempt to turn their host’s mouth into frozen tundra and then rip it apart like a bite-size Pangaea.

The experienced dentists and orthodontists of Advanced Family Dental restore order to unruly mouthscapes with Invisalign orthodontic treatments. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment.
Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 6–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw. Today’s Groupon does not include posttreatment retainers, which may be recommended by the dentists.

The grin-shaping skills on display at Advanced Family Dental have led to Dr. Joseph Rubis’s fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry and Dr. David J. Rubis’s stint as a featured dentist on ABC’s Extreme Makeover. The practice’s nine locations maintain flexible hours that simplify appointment scheduling, ease patient stress, and test wall-mounted clocks’ elasticity.

When he was a boy in the small town of Mount Olive, Illinois, Dr. David J. Rubis dreamed of being a dentist. Doggedly pursuing his goal, he graduated from Northwestern University Dental School in 1978 and opened his own practice. Years later, his son, Dr. Joseph Rubis, followed in his footsteps by joining a growing network of dental-care centers headed by Rubis pére.
