Like glaciers and tectonic plates, teeth are slowly yet surely on the move as they attempt to turn their host’s mouth into a frozen tundra, then rip it apart like a bite-size Pangaea. Defeat your devious teeth with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get an initial Invisalign examination at Bankhead, McDermott and Rodabough Orthodontics (a $300 value), plus $1,000 to put toward the total cost of the full teeth-straightening treatment. This Groupon can be redeemed at any of Bankhead, McDermott and Rodabaugh’s six St. Louis area locations.
Led by a team of experienced dentists, Bankhead, McDermott and Rodabough Orthodontics sculpt shapely smiles using cutting-edge orthodontic technology, and are branded an Elite partner by Invisalign for their experience and expertise with the procedure. The process straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia, eschewing 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, will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. While the total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000–$8,000), this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.

Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn over a period of 6–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. While aligners should be worn between 20–22 hours a day for optimal results, they can be easily and comfortably removed when eating, drinking, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
