Some people are hesitant on getting braces to help straighten out their misaligned teeth due to the visible wires and metal brackets. This is usually common when it comes to adults who have misaligned teeth and are self-conscious with their smile. But worry not! With advancements in technology, there is a clear solution for people that wouldn’t like their braces to be visible—Invisalign.
Invisalign are clear aligners comprised with a series of clear plastic shells that fit tightly around the teeth. It is the invisible way to straighten your teeth.
Some of us have many questions about Invisalign. How much does it cost? How long does the process take?
For parents that are seeking Invisalign for their teens and for adults who are interested to know more about these clear aligners, here’s the article that you might be looking for about Invisalign in the Philippines.
How does the Invisalign treatment process go?
In every treatment that you undergo, consulting with your dentist is the number one thing you are going to do. Not all dentists are Invisalign trained, therefore you have to find a clinic that offers Invisalign. Find a dentist that you trust and you are comfortable with, and most importantly, Invisalign trained.
2. Digital Impressions
Using a digital scan, your doctor will take your impressions to create a 3D digital model of your teeth that will be needing Invisalign. That could be your upper, lower teeth or both of it.
3. 3D Treatment Plan
Your digital impressions are sent to Invisalign dental technicians that work with your dentist to create a digital treatment plan based on your dentist’s prescription. The proposed plan is sent back to your dentist for review, modification, and approval. Your dentist will guide you throughout your entire treatment plan.
4. Custom Aligners
Your custom aligners are made at an Invisalign automated plant where each Invisalign is custom made based on your digital scan and 3D treatment plan. Invisalign is placed over your teeth compared to traditional braces.
You will be receiving a series of aligners that you can change at home every two weeks. And you will only be seeing your dentist every two months. This may still vary with the case that you have.
Invisalign treatment will only take you 12-18 months. This may still increase when recommended by your dentist. They might also recommend you to wear retainers to prevent the teeth from gradually going back to their initial position.
How much does Invisalign cost in the Philippines?
Invisalign can range from Php 200,000 to Php 250,000 and it may go on beyond that depending on your teeth’s case. Although this may sound heavy for most people, there are still different payment options you can choose from to achieve that perfect and aligned teeth you have always wanted.
