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 $50, you get an initial Invisalign examination, x-rays, and digital images (a $350 value), plus $1,000 toward the full teeth-straightening treatment from Dr. W. Gray Grieve at Invisalign Eugene.
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 60-minute exam, including x-rays and digital images of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (running anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
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, and flossing.
Dr. W. Gray Grieve staffs his office with friendly, expert dental helpers, earning his practice the honor of a 2011 Readers' Choice Award from The Register-Guard. While waiting for their appointments, patients can step into a video-arcade room for some fun-filled stress relief, and sip on coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. Clients should prepare for an hour's disruption in regularly scheduled workdays or staring contests to spend in the cozy dental den.
