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 $2,995, you get a complete Invisalign orthodontic treatment at All Perfect Smiles in Oak Forest or Palos Park (a $6,000 value).
Doctor Lena Halikias and associates, all graduates of Chicago universities with a passion for meticulous dental care, straighten serrations with Invisalign treatments tailored to each patient's personal 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 patient's mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Routine checkup visits scheduled on an as-needed basis ensure teeth are settling 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. To aid weekday warriors in receiving their straightening services, the dental office holds appointments on Saturday between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.
