Like glaciers, teeth are slow moving, difficult to relocate, and often surrounded by admiring tourists. Shape impressive pearlies with today’s Groupon: for $2,599, you get a complete Invisalign treatment at Floss Dental (a $6,000 value). This Groupon can be redeemed at Floss' locations in Dallas, Fort Worth, Plano, and Rockwall, or any of their other Texas locations.
The team of dentists at Floss Dental use Invisalign treatments to straighten crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the techniques of time-tested orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. Clients begin the initial 30-minute exam with a flurry of x-rays, photos, and impressions that map mouth terrain and pave the way for calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Sessions are in private rooms equipped with flat-screen TVs and satellite radios that let patients revel in entertainment without being blitzed by a clown-college football team.
Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners (plus a retainer to be used at night) will need to be worn during a period of 6–15 months before the straightening effect is complete. Patients can remove aligners when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
