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 a complete ClearCorrect teeth-straightening treatment, including the initial examination, x-rays, and impressions at Signature Smiles of Tulsa (a $5,733 value).
ClearCorrect straighten crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 90-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 without the cuts and scrapes of traditional braces. Wearers schedule appointments to fit their schedule, returning about every three weeks for a new set. View some ClearCorrect 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 6–24 months, depending on the individual, 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. Signature Smiles of Tulsa's team of smile lovers is captained by Dr. Bert Franklin, whose big-hearted desire to induce smiles everywhere has led him to help start clinics for needy mouths in Mexico and Barbados.
Signature Smiles Dental Spa
Dr. Bert Franklin cares for smiles with a full range of preventive, corrective, and cosmetic dental services for which he pursues continuing education. A Tulsa native, Dr. Franklin headed to the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry to earn his toothy know-how. From there, he heeded the call of southern climes such as Mexico and Barbados, where he helped to found dental clinics for the underprivileged. Dr. Franklin then returned to Tulsa to build the Signature Smiles of Tulsa practice upon his charitable and worldly experiences.
