Some conditions, like these, don’t mean you are not suitable for become, but require to visit your dentists and get it fixed before focusing on straightening your teeth.

  1. Root canals
    Root canal-ed teeth are movable but please wait for 1 to 2 months after the procedure before starting your smile correction.
  2. Crowns
    If they are in the front 6 to 8 teeth, it will be on a case-by-case basis whether or not it is suitable. 
  3. Veneers
    Teeth can be aligned but there is a very low risk that a veneer might fall off if it is fixed to the front 6 to 8 teeth.
  4. Loose dental fillings
    The filling has to be re-done or it might pop off, especially if it is on the front teeth.
  5. Gum issues
    If you have swollen gum or excessive bleeding when brushing or flossing, these can be signs of gum disease. We advise to consult a dentist.
  6. Untreated cavities or caries
    These need to be fixed before straightening your teeth.
  7. Excessive plaque (calculus) on teeth
    If there is too much plaque, you need to go to the dentist before coming for a scan as we won’t be able to scan the actual shape of teeth.

In conclusion, if your teeth do not meet the unsuitable conditions as mentioned above, we would love to assist you on your teeth straightening journey to reach your new smile goals. If your gum is healthy, your teeth are clean, what are you waiting for? Start by booking a FREE dental scan at one of our partner clinics and we’ll send you a preview of your ‘after-become’ smile!

How Healthtech Makes Invisible Braces Affordable for Youths

What is healthtech?

Healthtech is a sector where digital products and services and healthcare meet. Designed in a way that provides people with a faster, cheaper and more accessible care. These services are usually found outside of a clinic to remote areas where healthcare is not as accessible. 

By using advanced technology, it creates new areas of innovation such as teledentistry to 

emerge and allow healthcare systems to reach across the Philippines and Southeast Asia to meet growing demand and need to access healthcare everywhere.

Healthtech and teledentistry

One of the rising sub-areas of healthtech is telehealthcare, where it enables people to access to receive assistance and the help they need remotely. Given the ability to speak to multiple people at once instead of spending long hours for one person this allows the service provider to be more responsive in handling the consumer’s different needs and ultimately makes it easier for all healthcare professionals to provide high quality service to more people. 

Teledentistry is part of the larger picture in telehealthcare. Where similarly, the goal is to improve the access of dental care, create a place for licensed dentists to exchange insights, and further advance dental care remotely. This will greatly help those who are unable to reach a dentist or just live too far away from a dental clinic in the Philippines. 

At become, we push to make teeth straightening accessible to all but also affordable for all. High quality of care without the costs of time, money, effort and at times feels tense and rushed. This is possible because we eliminate the costs that are in between in-person consultation and the middlemen that are providing you the invisible braces, with a direct to consumer model. 

Most importantly, your teeth straightening process will be handled by our partner dentists but become has fixed the price for you.
