Through a recent update, CandidPro clear aligner systems will now include support for eligible mixed dentition cases.

Candid has announced that its CandidPro clear aligner system will now offer dental professionals support for eligible mixed dentition cases.

The feature release builds on upgraded support for interproximal reduction and attachments unveiled earlier this year and a collaboration with Philips Sonicare, among other updates. With support for mixed dentition live, dental professionals now have the flexibility to offer CandidPro’s signature clear aligner treatment to an expanded range of younger patients.

Support for mixed dentition patients helps CandidPro doctors who focus on airway health. Many of these clinicians prescribe orthodontic treatments to younger patients in an effort to preempt airway health issues like obstructive sleep apnea later in life. Clear aligner therapy is often prescribed in conjunction with other airway-centric therapies to achieve functional tooth alignment.

With several major upgrades already released this year, the company says that it is building momentum that promises to last into the future.

“We have some of the most talented clinical minds in the industry building even more clinical tools for our providers,” says Brian Gray, DDS, Candid’s chief dental officer. “I’m proud to see our mixed dentition support go live today, and I’m excited to share more updates to CandidPro soon.”
