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.

If you want a consultation with Dr. Kizior to determine if EZ-Align is your best orthodontic option, just call his Western Springs, IL, office at (708) 246-1000 to learn more today!

Misaligned teeth can make cleaning them difficult and smiling a chore. But the idea of wearing bulky, conspicuous braces might not appeal ez-alignto 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!
