The Candid process begins with an appointment with Dr. Farber for a complete set of x-rays and a full-mouth digital scan.
Afterward, you can expect these steps:
- Dr. Farber will send your x-rays and scan to Candid for an orthodontist to review.
- The orthodontist will review the images and recommend a treatment plan within ten days.
- When you return to our office, Dr. Farber will present the treatment plan.
- If you approve the treatment plan, Dr. Farber will order your Candid clear aligners and collect payment.
- Candid will send you the trays and a digital monitor for scanning your teeth.
- Every two weeks, you will follow instructions for using the digital monitor to scan your teeth.
- Dr. Farber and a Candid orthodontist will remotely examine the scan to check your progress and see if your treatment needs adjustment.
- Through CandidApp, the orthodontist will notify you when it is time to switch to a new set of aligners.
- You will not need to come in to our office unless you have technical issues with treatment tracking.
- After you have worn all the aligners and completed treatment, you will have beautiful straight teeth.
- Dr. Farber will take a final scan of your teeth to request a custom retainer that will keep your teeth aligned.
