Generally, Candid will send your aligners within three weeks. Each patient’s case is different, so wait times vary.
You can eat while wearing Candid aligners, but some patients enjoy eating more by removing them. If you choose to eat while wearing the aligners, remove and rinse them afterward. Then, brush and floss your teeth, rinse your mouth well to remove any residue, and wear your aligners again. Also, avoid scorching hot foods or drinks while wearing the aligners to prevent distorting them.
You can clean Candid aligners by removing them and using a toothbrush free of toothpaste. Some patients use one toothbrush for their teeth and another for their Candid aligners. Brush and rinse the aligners thoroughly. You may also soak the aligners in low-strength hydrogen peroxide.
Stay away from the toothpaste for cleaning your aligners. The abrasive particles in toothpaste may scratch the aligner material and give bacteria a place to grow.
