More Than Metal Braces
Most patients we treat at Abenoja Orthodontics choose traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth.
While metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment in Vestavia Hills, you have other options, too!
Fixed & Removable Appliances
At Abenoja Orthodontics, we believe you should be well-informed when it comes to your treatment.
It’s important to understand the difference between fixed and removable appliances. Fixed appliances, like braces, are attached to your teeth and aren’t taken off until you complete your treatment.
Removable appliances, like the Invisalign clear aligner system, are worn about 20-22 hours a day but can be taken off easily.
Besides these obvious differences, Dr. Abenoja uses Invisalign aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems.
At Abenoja Orthodontics, we generally use fixed appliances for comprehensive and serious and treatment.
