We are a Platinum Invisalign Provider
Rankin & Fiume Orthodontics is recognized as a Premier Preferred Provider by Invisalign. This status is awarded to practices that exemplify a certain level of Invisalign experience based on the number of cases treated per year.
What is Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and can be an effective alternative treatment option to braces.
Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which also usually means you spend less time in your doctor's office getting adjustments. Invisalign treatment also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How does it work?
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions. You'll visit us about once every eight to ten weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Who is an Invisalign Candidate?
Invisalign treatment is available to both teenagers and adults. At your initial visit, Dr. Rankin and Dr. Fiume will review your treatment needs to determine if Invisalign is right for you.
