Do you need braces but want to avoid clunky metal traditional braces? Dr. Joseph Kizior, your Western Springs, IL, orthodontist can help. He provides his patients with a treatment called EZ-Align. This technique is ideal for people who want to discreetly straighten teeth and correct bite issues.
More About EZ-Align From Your Western Springs Dentist
EZ-Align consists of customized clear aligner trays that apply pressure on each tooth. This technique moves teeth to their correct positions. EZ-Align’s trays are made of thermoplastic material and latex. These materials contain no bisphenol A, or BPA for short, which makes them safe and comfortable to wear.
Each aligner tray adds continues pressure for two to three weeks before your doctor switches them for the next tray in the series. The number of trays you'll need depends on how much your teeth will need to be moved, or the severity of your dental condition. This is something vital to speak with your doctor about, so do so during your EZ-Align consultation.
If your dentist determines that EZ-Align is the best treatment option for you, this orthodontic procedure may take several months, but will treat issues like, overbite, underbite, cross bite, open bite, misaligned teeth, overcrowding, and under crowding.
Patients wear EZ-Align aligner trays for at least 20 hours a day, so it is necessary to be committed to this plan.
EZ-Align has several benefits:
- Unlike traditional braces, EZ-Align trays are almost completely invisible, so you'll be discreetly straightening your teeth without anyone's knowledge.
- You can easily remove aligners to eat.
- You'll cut down the amount of time spent on routine dental care time because you'll be able to remove aligners while you brush and floss, unlike caring for bulky metal braces.
