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 today’s Groupon: for $2,499, you get a complete Clear Correct Invisible Braces treatment teeth-straightening treatment including x-rays and consultation from Bruce Thomas-Aahrens, DDS, PC, in Peoria.
With Clear Correct, Dr. Bruce Thomas-Aahrens and his staff straighten crooked chompers using highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Clear Correct 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 calibrated teeth sheaths 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.
