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.
After experiencing a very difficult time in her life, mother and entrepreneur Lauri Meizler was in search of a healthy start. She went down many paths to recover, but the results were less than optimal: instead of feeling energized, she found herself lethargic and underweight. It wasn’t until discovering cleansing and Ayurveda, one of the world's oldest medical systems, that life began to change. Soon thereafter, she adapted the teachings of the combination, and has since felt energetic, balanced, and in control of her life once again.
Lauri received certifications as a health coach in raw foods and Ayurveda and pairs the ancient Indian tradition’s holistic-wellness practices with modern nutrition training to help others optimize their health and well-being through eating a predominantly plant-rich diet. Her company, Joos, funnels these nutritious ingredients into bottles to help on-the-go people to build healthy, sustainable eating habits.
In flavors such as green lemonade, citrus refresh, and antioxidant blast, these wholesome potables teem with ingredients such as fresh-pressed, unpasteurized apples, ginger, and bok choy. Each bottle contains 10–14 types of garden-grown goodness, which amount to two times the daily requirement of fruits, veggies, and scarecrow smiles. The juices can fortify meals with vitamins and minerals or serve as the meals themselves during cleanses, which last 5–21 days. Cleanse participants can also drink in the support of a certified health coach/cleanse expert.
