What Is EZ-Align?
When your teeth are incorrectly aligned, it can be a real blow to your self-consciousness, and perhaps, make you hesitant to smile. Braces can be helpful but are also extremely visible. EZ-Align clear aligners can correct misaligned teeth by gradually moving them into their proper position. There are several types of EZ-Align, each meant to treat a different need. Meet with Dr. Kathy Jacobsen at our dental practice in Gilbert, AZ today to discuss which of these aligners can restore the life of your smile. The staff at Dr. Kathy Jacobsen Contemporary Dentistry is expertly trained and passionate about ensuring our patients receive the very best care possible.

Am I an Ideal Candidate for EZ-Align?
As with almost any form of treatment, EZ-Align may not be right for everyone. There is no age associated with the treatment, as they have been found to be suitable for everyone, from preteens to adults. Patients must be able to commit to regularly scheduled appointments at our office in order for EZ-Align to work properly. This allows us to consistently adjust the mouthpiece as your teeth are repositioned. Additionally, patients should have healthy gums and teeth.
Typically, EZ-Align is ideal for patients who have:
- Gaps between their teeth
- Crowded or overlapping teeth
- Upper teeth that aren't visible in their smile
- Space between their upper and lower teeth when they bite or chew
- Teeth erupting in the incorrect areas of the mouth
How Does EZ-Align Work?
During your initial consultation with Dr. Jacobsen, she will take a detailed scan of your teeth in order to create a precise map of their positioning. Using this, she will project the exact movement of your teeth at various points throughout the treatment. The aligners themselves will then be carefully molded to meet the specifications of this map. Once they have been finalized, patients will be asked to pick them up from our office for their fitting. During this time, our staff will be able to ensure the EZ-Align clear aligners fit perfectly onto your teeth and to walk you through how they should be cared for in your everyday life.
What Results Can I Expect From EZ-Align?
As you continue to wear the aligners, your teeth will slowly begin to shift closer and closer to where they belong. For this reason, it's important to remember to maintain regular appointments with Dr. Jacobsen to adjust the EZ-Align clear aligners to the new position of your teeth and keep them on the correct path. The exact time of treatment will vary from patient to patient, depending on a number of factors, including the severity of the misalignment of your teeth and your overall oral health.
