At Massa Dental Center, we are dedicated to giving our patients access to the latest techniques and technology that can improve either their results or experience. That’s why we are constantly evaluating new approaches to dentistry as they become available and adopting ones that we think will help our patients.
That’s why we’re proud to introduce Candid Pro: a new approach to orthodontics that is easier and more convenient for you. It’s designed to take advantage of modern technology to reduce the number of office visits you need to get your teeth straightened while ensuring your cosmetic dentist can monitor your treatment closely. You get the best of both worlds: maximum convenience and the peace of mind that comes from professional care you can trust.
An Orthodontic Approach You Can Administer at Home
Candid Pro combines convenience and assurance for the best experience and the best results from your orthodontic treatment using clear plastic aligners, similar to Invisalign. We send the complete set of aligners to your house. Just wear the aligners about 22 hours a day in the recommended order to straighten your teeth.
The custom-made aligners move your teeth in a precise sequence of steps. Each step takes about two weeks, but there is some variability. Your teeth might not always respond as well to the treatment, or perhaps a particular step is more rigid and might take a little longer. Or maybe a step goes quickly, and you can switch early. How can you deal with this variability?
With traditional orthodontics, you make periodic visits to your cosmetic dentist. They can check your progress and make sure your treatment is on track. With some at-home treatments, you get little monitoring, letting small problems multiply, leading to complications.
But with Candid Pro, you get the tools you need to monitor your treatment without coming in for an appointment. In addition to your aligners, you get a CandidMonitoring™ tool, an attachment for your cell phone that lets you take detailed photos of your teeth. It’s as easy as taking a selfie. You send these pictures to Candid Pro and your cosmetic dentist at Massa Dental Center. We can look at the pictures and clear you to move on to your next aligner, recommend you keep using this one a little longer, or ask you to come into the office if there’s a problem.
You get peace of mind from a dentist monitoring your treatment but don’t need to make unnecessary dental visits.
Treat Common Orthodontic Concerns
Candid Pro isn’t just convenient; it’s effective for mild to moderate malocclusions (teeth misalignments). You might be a candidate for Candid Pro if you have:
- Spaces between teeth
- Protruding teeth
- Misaligned teeth
Clear Aligners Don’t Interfere with Your Lifestyle
In addition to the convenience of at-home monitoring, Candid Pro lets you enjoy all the regular benefits of clear aligners.
With Candid Pro, you don’t have to deal with the problems of metal brackets and wires. This means you won’t have the wires and brackets poking your lips and cheeks. You also won’t have to worry about having a metal mouth when you talk, smile, or eat. The clear plastic aligners are so discreet that people won’t know you’re straightening your teeth unless you tell them.
With the removable aligners, you can enjoy even more freedom when you’re getting your teeth straightened. You can remove the aligners and eat all the foods you love. You won’t have any diet restrictions. Keep eating popcorn, taffy, gum, crusty bread, and all the other foods that can damage braces. You don’t have to worry about cleaning around your brackets and wires either; just remove the aligners, and brush and floss normally.
Plus, Candid Pro is very fast. The average Candid Pro orthodontics case takes just six months to complete.
There is no orthodontic approach that is easier on your lifestyle than Candid Pro.
