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 $2,999, you get a complete Invisalign treatment from Dr. Brigidanne Murphy at the office of Dr. Joseph Serra in Novi (up to an $8,000 value).
The complete Invisalign treatment includes:
- An initial examination
Dr. Brigidanne Murphy, a 20-year tooth-tending veteran, trains slipshod rows of teeth to march in clean, orderly lines with complete Invisalign treatments. 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 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. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
A neuromuscular specialist, Dr. Serra fills his office with advanced tooth-mending technology, including a K7 evaluation system to track jaw movement and proper bite location, and intraoral cameras, which provide unimpeded close-up shots of teeth for dramatic effect during chase scenes.
