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 $2,700, you get a complete Invisalign orthodontic treatment at Starr Family Dentistry in Rockland (up to a $6,300 value).
Dr. Nancy H. Starr, who graduated from the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in only three years and has been in practice for nearly 30 years, leads a team of experienced technicians at Starr Family Dentistry. Her Invisalign treatments eschew 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 the patient’s mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift smiles 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 6–15 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. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
