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 $2,799, you get an Invisalign treatment with up to 48 aligners at Lakeside Dental in Folsom (up to a $6,500 value). The treatment includes:
- Initial examination
- ClinCheck setup
- Required work-up for Invisalign<p>
A preferred provider for three consecutive years, Lakeside Dental corrects crooked grins with Invisalign—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 exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of the patient’s 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 6–24 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Regular trips back to Lakeside Dental ensure the process moves along as expected, with results yielding improved teeth spacing and bite correction. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
