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 Invisalign treatment at the Centre for Contemporary Dental Concepts in Tempe (a $7,000 value). The treatment includes:
- An initial examination
- Aligners <p>
The Centre for Contemporary Dental Concepts’ Dr. Trent Smallwood, an associate editor of the peer-reviewed Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry and an accomplished author of dental theory, employs expert know-how during advanced Invisalign treatments designed to craft beautifully straight mouthscapes. 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 crooked and rotated teeth into near-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 4–24 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates. Wearers should only remove aligners when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Clients can sip on a complimentary coffee or tea and reward teeth for preappointment bravery with freshly baked Otis Spunkmeyer cookies before reclining under a cozy blanket in a plush, leather dental chair during treatment. Between mouth-mending appointments, Dr. Smallwood takes up residence behind his elegant wooden desk, where he prepares lectures on Invisalign certification that he delivers in front of international audiences.
