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 orthodontic treatment at Greenway Orthodontics in Glen Burnie (a $7,700 value).
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. Dr. Anyadike and a staff of trained tooth techs guide patients through the Invisalign process, which 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. A virtual treatment plan allows patients to see their future smile and any forthcoming audits. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Depending on the client’s teeth, an average of 18–30 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 9–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Patients return to Dr. Anyadike every six weeks to allow the dentist to check on the progress of their gradually straightening smile. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
Dr. Anyadike is a dentist to the dentists. Dedicated solely to orthodontic care, he and his team are trusted to tend to the teeth of doctors, hygienists, speech therapists, and their families. He extends a choice of braces to his patients. The option of colorful elastics and clear brackets or Wild Smiles brackets shaped like hearts and stars put patients in charge of their interior decoration. Dr. Anyadike is also qualified to supply Invisalign braces, nearly invisible aligners molded with the aid of 3-D computer imaging and the office caricaturist.
