Why Choose Candid Clear Aligners Over Invisalign?

Candid has many of the same benefits but with MORE conveniences.

Better Tracking
You’ll get hands-on support from our Portsmouth dentist and a licensed orthodontist without you having to be in the office physically. Just send some photos every 14 days, and you’re all set.
Remote Visits
There are no in-office follow-ups required unless you have a problem. A licensed orthodontist tracks your progress to confirm if it’s time to switch out trays or give your aligners more time.
Faster Treatments
Treatments are typically shorter because Candid focuses on mild misalignment correction, and everything is done at home. Invisalign and braces require in-office visits every 4-6 weeks.
More Natural
While Candid clear aligners are similar to Invisalign, they don’t require resin buttons on teeth or enamel reduction. This means a more discreet, comfortable, and non-invasive way to straighten teeth.
Less Expensive
Candid is usually a third (sometimes half) of the cost of Invisalign because treatment time is typically shorter and requires fewer in-office visits. Meanwhile, you still get the professional and dedicated care of a licensed orthodontist.
Greater Comfort
Clear aligners are made of form-fitting plastic without the metal wires and brackets of braces. Nobody has to know you’re undergoing ortho treatment, and they’re removable for eating and oral hygiene.

FAQ about Candid Clear Aligners

Learn more about this Invisalign alternative.
  • How do Candid clear aligners work?

    Candid clear aligners are similar to Invisalign. The main difference is that you complete check-ups from your home’s comfort via teledentistry.

    After an initial consultation to see if you’re a candidate for Candid aligners, we create your treatment plan. Once ready, you receive the teeth straightening kit with all of your plastic tray aligners and a scanning device.

    Wear your trays according to the plan, perform a scan every 14 days, and your dedicated orthodontist checks on your progress. If everything looks good, you switch to the next trays and guide your teeth to a straighter smile.

    The virtual orthodontic check-ups add extra convenience, and you’ll only have to visit your dentist if there’s a problem.

  • How long is treatment?

    Candid clear aligner treatments are typically shorter than Invisalign. On average, they take about six months.

    The main difference is that Candid is monitored more closely every 14 days to ensure you’re only moving to your next trays when ready and approved by an orthodontist.

    With Invisalign, an orthodontist gives you a set of trays, and you switch them out weekly without proper monitoring. The problem with this is that patients who don’t comply with wearing their trays per schedule may be changing them out too early each week.

    At the end of the day, better accountability with bi-weekly remote consultations equals better compliance and faster treatment!

  • How much does Candid cost? Does dental insurance cover it?

    Candid costs about $4,000. Invisalign is about $6,000-$8,000.

    Our clear aligners in Portsmouth, NH, are the most affordable way to straighten teeth at home if you have slightly crooked or crowded teeth.
