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 $2,899, for you get a complete Invisalign orthodontic treatment (a $6,000 value) at OC Dental Center, with locations in Santa Ana, Mission Viejo, and Fullerton.
A team of dentists fills cavities, cleans mouths, and straightens serrations with Invisalign treatments. 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 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. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $3,500 to $8,000). 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, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
OC Dental Center
At OC Dental Center and OC Smile, which has three locations in the Orange County area, the team of dentists restores the smiles of patients young and old in an ultramodern facility with massage chairs and flat-screen televisions. Lush, Tuscan-style environs accented with rich murals provide a refreshing contrast to the sterile decor and loose teeth scattered throughout most dentist offices. Low-radiation digital x-rays represent OC's commitment to safe, up-to-the-minute technology, which also includes the latest teeth-whitening treatments and Waterlase, a laser-based treatment that can eliminate the need for drilling. Additionally, most of the offices have bilingual staffs who are able to guide patients through visits in both English and Spanish.
