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 $2,699, for you get a complete Invisalign orthodontic treatment at North Kansas City Dental Group (up to a $7,900 value).
Dr. Bill Busch, recipient of the Mastership Award from the Academy of General Dentistry (MAGD) and member of the American Dental Association, 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 your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Routine follow-up visits ensure that teeth continue to reset in proper fashion.
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. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
