Learn about Invisalign in Vestavia Hills
Invisalign® treatment with Dr. Abenoja and the team at Abenoja Orthodontics can give you beautiful, straight teeth without braces.
A Modern Approach
This nearly-invisible option to straighten your teeth is truly changing the way people see orthodontic treatment in Vestavia Hills. Dr. Abenoja has a lot of experience treating patients with Invisalign, and we’re excited to offer this technology to our orthodontic patients at our Liberty Park office.
Invisalign straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. It’s virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth.
Wearing the aligners as directed will gently move your teeth into place little by little, based on the exact movements Dr. Abenoja plans for you.
With Invisalign treatment from Abenoja Orthodontics, there are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners every week until your treatment is complete.
At Abenoja Orthodontics, you’ll achieve a great smile with a treatment that doesn’t get in the way of your daily life. The best part about the whole process? Most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth!
The Invisalign Process
The Invisalign System combines advanced 3D computer graphics technology with the 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by Dr. Abenoja.
Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. Your first step is to visit our office in Vestavia Hills to determine if Invisalign is right for you.
After sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions in a sequence of finely calibrated aligners. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss.
As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually—week-by-week until you attain the final alignment prescribed by Dr. Abenoja. Then you'll be smiling like you never have before!
Differences Between Invisalign & Braces
Unlike traditional braces, smooth plastic Invisalign aligners don't have metal components that can irritate your mouth.
Because they’re removed when you eat, you won't have to watch what you eat like you would when wearing braces. That means there are no food restrictions!
In fact, aligners must be removed for eating and for drinking anything other than water. You need to make sure you’re willing to do that before you decide on Invisalign clear aligners.
To prevent staining, you’ll need to clean your teeth before putting the aligners back on after you eat. Of course, brushing and flossing are much easier than with traditional braces, since you don’t have any brackets and wires to maneuver around.
