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 $2,599, for you get a complete Invisalign orthodontic treatment at Montgomery Plaza Dental (a $6,000 value).
John Rubin, D.D.S., P.A., a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and the American Dental Association, straightens serrations with Invisalign treatments customized to meet each client’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 your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Patients return to the offices for routine checkups so that Dr. John can chart the progress of their oral shifting and ensure proper movement. Following the treatment, patients receive a set of retainers to keep newly straightened teeth in place. 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. During in-office portions of the treatment, patients can relax in heated massage chairs, coddled in blankets and pillows while listening to an audio CD or watching an entertaining video.
