How Does EZ-Align® Work?
Some people may not realize that there are other forms of treatment aside from braces when it comes to straightening the teeth — enter EZ-Align®. Recently, aligners have grown in popularity because of their look as well as because the process can be done a lot quicker. EZ-Align happens to be one of those methods that provides someone with a way to straighten their teeth, quickly and aesthetically.
Knowing what EZ-Align does and exactly how it works can be beneficial to a person that is considering having aligners put on. Today, we will go over how it works so that the next time you’re at your orthodontist, you can talk to them about EZ-Align.
How does EZ-Align work?
This method of treatment is said to give a patient complete control. This is because the EZ-Align method allows the patient to remove the aligners at any given time. Although a patient can take the aligners out at any time, it is still necessary that they wear the aligners for the majority of the day. It is recommended to only take the EZ-Align out when brushing, flossing or eating throughout the day. However, in order for them to work properly, a person must wear them for at least 20 hours per day.
Because EZ-Align is clear and removable, they are one of the most discreet methods of treatment when it comes to straightening the teeth. The removable aligner allows for one to take it out in certain situations where they may not want it to be noticed.
On the flip side, even when it is being worn, it is incredibly difficult for someone to notice it because it is so clear and so thin. This provides a huge advantage to patients who don’t want to draw attention to their mouths during the straightening process.
Quick and efficient
Aligners of all sorts are actually quicker and more efficient than that of braces. The same applies to EZ-Align. Because EZ-Align is one aligner that fits all of the teeth, it works quickly to straighten the teeth altogether, as opposed to each individual tooth with brackets when braces are used. Most people find it hard to believe but individual brackets on each tooth shift each one individually as opposed to aligners that move all of the teeth together.
Being aware of what EZ-Align is and how it works can greatly benefit someone who is considering an alternative to braces. EZ-Align allows for straightening of the teeth quickly and efficiently while also being pretty discreet in the process.
