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. Defeat devious teeth with this Groupon: for $2,999, for you get a complete Invisalign orthodontic treatment at Carmel Advanced Dentistry (a $6,000 value).
Dr. Pauley straightens serrations with Invisalign treatments tailored to meet each patient's needs. 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 the mouth, paves the way for aligners, and patients return to the dental office for routine check ups so Dr. Pauley can ensure teeth continue to settle into their new positions without issue. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
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.
When he’s not straightening smiles, Dr. Pauley works to beautify them using digital x-rays, Zoom! whitening, and intraoral cameras. He also crafts crowns, inlays, and onlays in one visit, instead of the traditional two visits, with the help of CEREC 3-D technology.
