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 30-minute 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. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer ($4,000–$7,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
The multi-lingual staff at Dr. Dental, a family-run practice, strives to shatter orthodontic stereotypes by tidying up tusks in an unintimidating office sporting the ambience of a friendly neighborhood establishment. Return choppers to a glowing state with a new-patient cleaning, a procedure that polishes pearly whites and analyzes teeth’s deep-seated fear of falling out and being exiled by a fairy. After a deep cleaning, the non-judgmental dentist administers bitewing x-rays to inspect for toothy ailments and lays out a long-term treatment plan for molar maintenance. Many locations offer after-hours and weekend appointment times for patients who are busy with work, family, or animal husbandry.
Within Moksha Spa and Wellness Center's 5,000 square feet of tranquil, Asian-themed space, staffers inspire well-being with holistic therapies. Reiki healing aims to clear blocked energy pathways, and shirodhara—an ancient ayurvedic technique in which herbal oil flows over the forehead while a staff member massages the face, scalp, neck, and shoulders—calms the body and mind. Couples enjoy candlelight and a rose-petal bath in the massage room, where therapists wrap bodies in organic exfoliants or detoxifying clay.
The spa radiates with color, from brilliant oranges and yellows in the reception area to vibrant red sofas with metallic accents. Cheerful lime-green walls surround the pedicure room, where guests ascend to a cushioned and tiled throne for foot pampering and scepter filing.
At Dental Bright Advanced Family Dentistry, a team of seven dentists keeps teeth looking and feeling their best with a full spectrum of services, from general dentistry to periodontics to orthodontia. Using digital x-rays and oral sedation, they help dramatically reduce both radiation and anxiety. Their treatment rooms' chair-side flat screens also keep restless uvulas entertained during services. It's important to the dental crew that kids grasp the importance of dental health, so the Dental Bright Kids Club periodically plies tykes with helpful tips along with ice cream, pizza, or sugar-spun dental floss at bowling parties.
The office itself lives up to the practice’s name with sweeping, airy spaces that are tied together with huge windows, curved blue walls, and orange accents. Even the kids' section of the waiting room is chic, with round neon stools and mod murals adding pops of color to the toothbrush-scrubbed interior.
The specialists at Concord, Andover, and Weymouth Dental Associates make dental care faster and more comfortable. The team at Andover Cosmetic Dental Group consists of an orthodontist, a dental anesthesiologist, a periodontist, and an endodontist, allowing patients to address multiple needs under one roof. They use the latest anesthetic advancements to put guests at ease, including the Wand, with bidirectional rotation that prevents needle deflection, and the computerized Comfort Control syringe, which offers more controlled and consistent delivery than a manual syringe. The clinical staff at Weymouth Dental Associates also uses the CEREC system to design and fabricate ceramic restorations in one convenient visit, eliminating the need to cover treated teeth with temporary crowns or Lego helmets.
Cosmetic and general dentist Rich Miller, who practices at the Andover, Weymouth, and Concord locations, is a member of the Dental Comfort Academy, an organization dedicated to making trips to the dentist a more pleasant experience.
Coral Dental Care's expert teeth-tender, Dr. Anu Isaac, graduated first in her class at Boston University’s Goldman School of Dentistry and now straightens crooked chompers with Invisalign—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 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of 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. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
