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 $49, you get an initial Invisalign examination and a new patient consultation, which can include a CT scan, diagnostic records, photos, and an oral exam (a $450 value), plus $1,000 toward the full teeth-straightening treatment at either of Drs. Rogers, Duncan, and Dillehay’s Wichita locations.
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 exam, including a CT scan, photos, diagnostic records, and an oral examination, 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 $4,000 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, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
Headed by veteran tooth caretaker Dr. Ken Dillehay and staffed by an experienced team, Drs. Rogers, Duncan, and Dillehay makes smiles look as bright and fetching as they feel. The two offices ensconce patients in comfortable surroundings, with well-lit waiting and exam rooms filled with noncarnivorous plants to leave patients feeling as comfortable as a kitten in a velour jumpsuit. Patients who are not suitable candidates for Invisalign may receive a discount toward traditional braces.
