At the office of Scott A. Babin DDS & Associates, Edmonds, Washington, beautiful smiles are our business! Through Candid treatment, we can put a beautifully aligned smile well within your reach. If you’re facing problems with crooked or misaligned teeth, we encourage you to visit our clinic to learn more about Candid Clear Aligners orthodontics.
Although traditional metal braces are quite effective at straightening crooked teeth, not everyone feels comfortable with their appearance. What teen or adult wants to flash a mouthful of metal every time they smile or speak? In contrast, Candid uses clear, plastic, invisible teeth aligners to straighten your teeth. These aligners are hardly noticeable on your teeth, even when you smile. You can go about your business confidently, knowing your orthodontic issues are being corrected discreetly.
Upon your initial visit to our clinic, Drs. Scott A. Babin and Anne Mazure-Schmidt will examine your teeth and gums to assess your oral health and identify the problems that need to be addressed. We’ll explain how Candid works and help you set goals for your treatment. We’ll take digital impressions of your mouth to create a three-dimensional mold of your teeth. This mold will be used to customize aligners for your use.
Candid aligners exert gentle pressure on your teeth to shift them into a better position. These aligners will be changed every few weeks to keep the realignment process progressing throughout your treatment. Depending on the problems that need fixing, you could have a beautifully aligned smile in as little as 18 months or sooner.
In addition to being discreet, Candid offers the following advantages over traditional braces for straightening crooked teeth:
Like traditional metal braces, Candid can correct many orthodontic issues, including crooked and misaligned teeth, gaps between teeth, overcrowding, and bite issues, to give you a straighter, healthier smile. Most teens and adults find Candid orthodontics more conducive to their lifestyle, making the teeth straightening process much easier to bear.
