Clear Aligners

Straightening your teeth contributes to a confident smile and improves oral health. When misalignment is present, it not only causes unnecessary stress when biting and chewing but it can lead to other dental issues. Dougherty DDS proudly offers clear aligners to Falls Church patients who want to improve the aesthetics of their smile without wearing silver metal brackets. As a leading provider of clear braces in Falls Church, our team uses this clear aligner procedure to correct smiles and achieve the smile of your dreams.

Candid is a leading orthodontic tech company that offers revolutionary clear aligner treatment. Candid works with Dougherty DDS to bring patients a convenient way to straighten their teeth.

If you’re interested in a straighter, healthier smile, we can get you started with one quick diagnostic appointment.

Benefits of Candid Pro

Candid Pro has many of the benefits of other clear aligner treatments like Invisalign, plus a few of its own. With Candid Pro, you can enjoy:

  • Convenience – With Candid Pro, you only come into our office for the initial consultation and treatment planning, if all goes well. Thanks to Candid Pro’s remote CandidMonitoring™ you can do check-ups from home. This lets you know when to move on to the next set of aligners. You only need to come into the office if you have a problem.
  • Comfort – Candid Pro doesn’t use wires or brackets. The aligners are very comfortable to wear. The transition from one set of aligners to the next is relatively small compared to some orthodontic tightening visits, so the discomfort is minor.
  • Discretion – Traditional braces give you a mouth full of metal. But with Candid Pro, you can straighten your teeth with just clear plastic aligners. These aligners are almost invisible–no one will notice you are wearing them. People won’t know you’re straightening your teeth unless you tell them.
  • Fast Results – Candid Pro is designed to be a quick orthodontic treatment. Partly case selection, but also partly the technology helps you to get the straightening you need relatively quickly. The average Candid Pro treatment takes just six months.
  • Quality of Life – With Candid Pro, you don’t have to give up your favorite foods. You can take out your aligners, eat whatever you want, and put the aligners back in. You can even drink with them in, just remember to rinse them and clean teeth afterwards. Brushing and flossing is easy, too. With aligners out, it’s just like normally brushing, though you have to do it a little more often.

How It Works

During your treatment, you’ll wear a series of clear aligners made just for you. Each aligner step requires two weeks of wear. At the end of each step, you’ll receive a notification via CandidApp™ to share a progress scan with Dougherty DDS. These progress scans help us ensure your teeth are moving according to plan. It’s a great alternative to regular, in-person check-ins—especially if you’re on a tight schedule.
