Clear Aligners in McKinney, TX
CLEAR BRACES / ALIGNERS SYSTEM
Straighten Teeth the Clear Way
Are you seeking a more beautiful looking smile in McKinney, TX but not looking for the hassle of traditional braces? Candid Clear Aligners might be the perfect solution for you! Many adult patients think that correcting misalignment is reserved for kids and teenagers, but thanks to Candid (a more cost effective alternative to Invisalign®), no one even has to know you're wearing braces. The "aligners" are composed of plastic trays which completely remove the need for any metal fixtures. These trays are virtually invisible and can be removed at any time. This makes activities like eating, brushing and flossing much easier than traditional orthodontic braces. Candid also requires fewer visits to the dentist or orthodontist than traditional braces. For a clear aligner dentist in McKinney, Apollo Dental has you covered with Candid Aligners.

Frequently Asked Clear Aligner Questions:
How long will I wear the clear aligner trays?
The length of your clear aligner treatment depends on the patient. Sometimes it is only necessary to use the system to close a few spaces or treat minor malocclusion. Because each case is different, treatment can last anywhere from as little as 3 months. In some cases, treatment can last a little longer than 16 months.
How long is each aligner worn before moving on to the next one?
Typically each aligner is worn for a period of two weeks. However, each course is specific to the patient and therefore your doctor will outline a specific plan or cycle for each patient.
Is there a recommended age group for Clear Aligners?
Candid treatment is great for both teens and adults who's malocclusion as ideal for treatment. Other problems may exist with a patients bite that may require a more traditional orthodontic approach. Each patient should be evaluated on a case by case basis. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
What is the cost difference in comparison to traditional braces?
Cost is typically comparable to traditional braces but again varies on a case by case basis. If a longer course is needed to correct the malocclusion, pricing can increase.
