Misaligned teeth can make cleaning them difficult and smiling a chore. But the idea of wearing bulky, conspicuous braces might not appeal to you either. That's why Dr. Joseph Kizior, your orthodontist in Western Springs, IL, offers EZ-Align as a comfortable, hygienic, and practically invisible alternative to traditional braces. If you'd like to learn more about EZ-Align's benefits, you've come to the right place!
How does EZ-Align work?
EZ-Align uses the same technology that traditional braces employ; localized pressure is placed on certain teeth to move them into place. However, EZ-Align from your Western Springs, IL, orthodontist doesn't require the brackets and wires; this orthodontic system uses a series of flexible plastic trays that are custom-fitted for you. When your teeth have shifted - usually after a month or so - you simply switch to a new aligner that will reflect those changes and continue the process. These removable trays are worn between 20 and 22 hours a day for an average of a year to give you a newly aligned smile you'll be proud to show off!
What are the benefits of EZ-Align?
One of the most compelling advantages of EZ-Align is that the trays are designed to be removed while eating and cleaning your teeth. Unlike traditional braces, this means you're free to eat what you like and maintain your normal dental hygiene routine. You'll also be able to thoroughly clean the trays before wearing them again. Another great aspect is that other people won't be able to see your EZ-Align trays while you're wearing them, thanks to their clear, flexible plastic material. Your journey to a straightened smile will be a completely personalized and comfortable experience!
