Dr. Paul Rim — Redwood City’s Preferred Invisalign Provider

Consider Invisalign treatment to get the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted — without braces. A complimentary consultation at our Redwood City, CA orthodontic office can determine if Invisalign clear aligners are right for you.

When you are choosing an Invisalign provider, it is always in your best interest to work with a specialist, like Dr. Rim, an orthodontist who is a qualified Invisalign provider. This ensures that, in addition to your teeth being straight, your bite will also be healthy and functional. As a Preferred Provider of Invisalign in Redwood City and a specialist in orthodontics, Dr. Rim has the experience and training to complete just about any case using Invisalign.

What is it?

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 has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to administer Invisalign treatment.

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 at Rim Orthodontics 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?

During your initial exam at Rim Orthodontics, Dr. Rim will learn about your lifestyle, schedule, and overall orthodontic goals. You’ll go over his clinical findings, discuss appropriate treatment options, and review the treatment plan to optimally align teeth in the most predictable and efficient way. If you are motivated and driven by aesthetics, we discuss Invisalign as the first option to treat your orthodontic problems.

If you choose Invisalign, we’ll take digital impressions with our state-of-the-art iTero® Element scanner, which will be sent to the Invisalign lab. There, your aligners will be created to the exact specifications of Dr. Rim’s treatment plan.

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 our Redwood City orthodontic office about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.

Total treatment time can be as short as three months (for very mild cosmetic cases) to two years, and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case. To make Invisalign even more efficient, we offer AcceleDent® Aura to accelerate tooth movement and decrease overall treatment time.

When you choose Rim Orthodontics for your Invisalign treatment, you can expect to be supported 24/7 during your treatment. You can reach us by email, text message, and phone anytime of the day for emergencies. We aim for 100% satisfaction with excellent results.
