Candid® Clear Aligners
Our office uses Candid® aligners that are made for each patient’s unique smile. In short, they work by gradually pushing the teeth into place, not unlike regular braces. The main difference is that the aligners are made out of clear plastic that’s virtually invisible when worn, and they can be taken out of your mouth when you need to eat or brush your teeth.
Benefits of Candid®
- Faster Treatment: Clear aligners usually require less time to straighten the teeth than metal braces.
- Comfortable: The surface of the aligners is very smooth and won’t risk irritating the inside of your mouth the way metal wires and brackets can.
- Removable: Since clear aligners can be taken out of your mouth, you can eat all of your favorite foods, and you don’t have to change your technique for brushing your teeth.
- Fewer Visits: Aligners don’t need the same kinds of adjustments as traditional braces, so they don’t call for as many progress appointments.
