What You'll Get
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 Invisalign examination (up to a $350 value) plus $1,000 to put toward the full teeth-straightening treatment. This Groupon can be redeemed at one of the following orthodontic centers run by Dr. Wayne Hickory and Dr. Sandra Selnick:
- OX Orthodontix, with locations in Ellicott City and Clarksville
- Dr. Wayne Hickory Orthodontics in Washington D.C.
- Maryland Children Dental Care and Orthodontics in Bethesda
- Sparks Valley Dental Specialists in Sparks
Invisalign 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 (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.
Depending on the client’s teeth, an average of 18 to 30 separate aligners will need to be worn over a period of six to 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.
Seventy-eight percent of more than 450 Real Self users say Invisalign is worth it:
