The Benefits of Straightening Your Teeth

Are you looking for a way to straighten your teeth but don't want to deal with traditional metal braces? Candid Pro may be the perfect solution for you. In this blog post, we'll discuss the benefits and why it may be the right choice for you.

Discreet Appearance & Comfortable Fit:

Unlike traditional metal braces, these aligners are made of clear BPA-free that is almost invisible. This means you can straighten your teeth without feeling self-conscious about your appearance. These aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly. The aligners are made of smooth, comfortable plastic that won't irritate your gums or cheeks. Unlike metal braces, there are no wires or brackets to adjust, which means fewer visits to the dentist and less discomfort during the straightening process.

Maintaining Oral Health:

When teeth are naturally crowded, it is harder to keep the area clean. Staining is often noticed and it is

s harder to eliminate. These teeth are also more prone to cavities due to a lack of cleanability. Aligner treatment allows improvement in these sites and patients are less likely to need dental treatment.

During aligner treatment, the aligners are removable, which means that you can take them out to eat, brush, and floss. This makes it much easier to maintain good oral hygiene during the straightening process. With metal braces, it can be difficult to clean your teeth properly, which can lead to cavities and other dental problems.

Bite/Occlusion Considerations:

When the teeth are positioned edge to edge, they are more prone to chipping and wear. This results in more extensive dental treatment such as crowns, veneers, root canals, etc. When the space between the top and bottom arches is small, they are more likely to be in traumatic occlusion. Aside from the esthetic aspect, aligner treatment also helps position teeth in favorable conditions.

What Candid Pro can do for you:

Candid Pro has several orthodontists and us overlooking your treatment. You also have the opportunity to track your own case. Every two weeks, you take images of your teeth, so we can evaluate the fit and if the teeth are tracking as needed. If intervention is needed, we reach out so we can see you back in our office for any modifications. Instead of having to come in every 6-8 weeks, you only need to come in on a need-only basis!

With Candid Pro, we can provide effective results with convenience. You are in control of your treatment!

How it works:

1st appointment: Consultation

To see if you are a candidate for aligner treatment, we always have to ensure the patient does not have any dental cavities or significant bone loss that might impact aligner treatment. Cavity-detecting xrays and panoramic xrays are obtained for this evaluation.

2nd appointment: Scans and Images

Scans of your upper and lower arches and bite are obtained. We take images of your facial profiles and your teeth for the lab.

3rd appointment: Delivery of the aligner treatment

We walk you through how to track your treatment.

In conclusion, Candid Pro is a great option for anyone looking to straighten their teeth without the hassle of traditional metal braces. With its discreet appearance, comfortable fit, and effective results, Candid Pro can help you achieve the beautiful smile you've always wanted.
