The teeth are the icebergs of the skeletal system, tiny exposed tips that represent the body’s massive, concealed support structure. Today’s Groupon ensures your bones’ spokesperson stands up straight: for $49, you get an Invisalign exam, x-rays, and impressions at Devereux & Nguyen Orthodontics (a $278 value) plus $1,000 toward a complete Invisalign treatment. This Groupon is valid at its seven southern Louisiana and Mississippi locations.
A thriving practice founded by two accomplished doctors, Devereux & Nguyen Orthodontics cleans and corrects carrot cutters using a comfortable and metal-less alternative to braces. The straightening process begins with a full exam, which maps out tonsil caves using x-ray cameras and impressionable teeth trays. A 3-D graphics program synthesizes this information into a detailed chomper chart, helping doctors design a finely tuned set of invisible fang shifters that can help erase mouth gaps and ease crowding.
Aligners change approximately every two weeks, and adults should wear them 20–22 hours per day for about one year, though they can be easily removed for meals, contact sports, and displays of tongue puppetry. The total cost for Invisalign usually ranges from $3,500 to $8,000.
