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 orthodontic examination (a $300 value) plus $1,500 to put toward a teeth-straightening treatment (either Invisalign or braces) from Boschken Orthodontics. This Groupon can be redeemed at one of three orthodontic centers in San Jose, Mountain View, and Los Altos.
Under the watchful eye of elite provider Dr. Boschken, an Invisalign procedure straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. The 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, will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (starting at around $5,200); this Groupon gets you $1,500 to put toward that final cost. The credit can also be used toward traditional braces (starting at around $4,800) as well.
Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 60 separate Invisalign aligners will need to be worn over a period of six to 18 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.
