Are you tired of feeling self-conscious about your crooked teeth?

Do you want a straighter, healthier smile but don’t want to deal with the hassle and visibility of traditional metal braces?

We got you covered. Look no further than Candid Clear Aligners.

Today we will take you on a journey of discovery as we look closer at Candid Clear Aligners at Bay Breeze Dentistry.

What are Candid clear aligners?

Candid Clear Aligners is a brand of clear aligners custom-made to fit your teeth and gradually shift them into the desired position.

These aligners are made of a clear, durable material that is virtually invisible when worn, making them a great option for adults and older teens who want to straighten their teeth without the visible appearance of metal braces.

Candid clear aligners straighten mild and moderate cases of:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Protrusion

Benefits of Candid aligners

One of the biggest benefits of Candid aligners is convenience. They are worn for 22 hours daily and only removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. This means you can continue to live your life as normal without having to worry about food getting stuck in braces or the discomfort of tightening appointments.

  • Clear and virtually invisible aligners
  • Custom-made
  • Worn for 22 hours a day for maximum effectiveness
  • Faster treatment time compared to traditional metal braces (typically 6 to 12 months)
  • Can straighten teeth, correct bite issues, and improve overall oral health
  • Convenient and requires no restriction on food or lifestyle
  • After treatment, retainers may be provided to prevent teeth from shifting back to their original position

Another benefit of Candid aligners is the speed of treatment. While traditional metal braces can take up to 2-3 years to straighten your teeth, Candid aligners typically take between 6 and 12 months.

This means that you can have the straight, healthy smile you’ve always wanted in a fraction of the time.

The process of fitting Candid aligners


The first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Santana-Paine. During this consultation, she will examine your teeth and discuss your goals for treatment.

The consultation includes taking impressions, x-rays, and photographs of your teeth to create a detailed treatment plan.

Treatment planning

This plan will include the number of aligners required, the length of treatment, and the expected outcome.

Custom aligner fabrication

Once the treatment plan has been finalized, the information is sent to Candid’s lab, where custom-made aligners will be fabricated.

These aligners are made of a clear, durable material that will gradually shift your teeth into the desired position.

Fitting and instruction

Dr. Santana-Paine will ensure that the aligners fit comfortably and securely and will provide instructions on how to use them.

Monitoring progress

You will need to schedule regular follow-up appointments with the orthodontist or dentist to ensure the treatment is progressing as planned.

Finishing touches

Once the treatment is complete, Dr. Santana-paine will remove the aligners and may give you a retainer to wear to keep your teeth from shifting back to their original position.
