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 $2,995, you get a complete Invisalign teeth-straightening treatment at Dr. Daniel J. Drach & Associates (a $5,500 value). This Groupon is valid at two locations in the South Loop and Norwood Park.
Dr. Dan Drach and his staff of trained tooth techs straighten crooked chompers with Invisalign’s combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process, recommended for patients in their teens through age 60, eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. Relax inside brightly hued treatment rooms as technicians administer an initial exam, which includes x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, to pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment.

Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 30 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.
