Candid Aligners are NewMouth's #1 recommendation for at-home clear aligner treatment.

They provide patients with Invisalign-level care (at an affordable price point) without having to visit an orthodontist in person.

Candid is also the only direct-to-consumer brand that works exclusively with licensed orthodontists. The same orthodontist who makes your treatment plan will oversee your treatment from start to finish.
