Basma at a Glance
Basma is a good solution for mild to medium misalignment issues. This includes things like overcrowding and gaps in the teeth. Basma is not the best solution for bite issues. However, bite corrections may inadvertently occur as a result of the treatment.
- Gaps in the teeth
How Does it Work?
One of the reasons people like Basma is because it is an entirely at-home treatment plan. You never have to enter a dental clinic, and you don’t have to worry about booking appointments or waiting in waiting rooms. Here’s how it works:
- Order and get the impressions kit
Ordering is done online. Simply visit the website, and order your kit. Basma will ship you out an impressions kit, and it should arrive in 2 or 3 days but can also take longer, depending on where you live.
- Take your impressions and send them back
The kit will come with detailed instructions on how to take your impressions. Follow these instructions to avoid rejected impressions due to poor quality. Basma sends a return label, so you don’t have to pay for return shipping.
- Assess and confirm your treatment plan
An orthodontist will review your case, and if you are a proper candidate for the aligners, Basma will create a customized treatment plan complete with a 3D rendering of your teeth. Review this plan and approve it to continue.
- Receive your aligners and start treatment
Basma will create custom-made aligners to fit your treatment plan and ship them out. You should receive the set within 20 days of confirmation. Basma aligners need to be worn for 22 hours a day, only being removed to eat and be cleaned.
- Use chewies for better placement and fit
Chewies are used to create a better fit to your teeth. After inserting the aligner, you’ll put the chewie tabs in between your teeth. Chew these tabs with your teeth, moving them from one side to the next, and then remove them.
Once a month, you’ll be required to upload photos of your teeth. Then a licensed orthodontist will review your case and make sure you are progressing properly. Basma will also send you email reminders to change to your next aligner in the set.
Treatment on average runs 4-6 months. Once treatment is completed, you’ll wear your retainer to maintain the results.
Basma is one of the more affordable clear aligner options in the UK. You can pay the entire sum upfront or break down your balance into monthly payments. Unfortunately, Basma only lets you break it up into five monthly payments, while other services allow you to stretch it out over a year. But because Basma is cheaper than some other competitors, you may not need as long to pay it off.
Initially, you’ll pay £9 for the impressions kit. If you order your aligners, the money is put towards the total amount. And if you don’t order your aligners kit, then you’ll be refunded the £9. Normal impressions kit pricing is £15.
If you opt to pay out the sum in installments, it’ll cost you £1325. So it’s only slightly higher and well worth the small increase for the convenience of paying it out over five months. Basma also offers free shipping no matter where you are in the world and sends you a free return label to ship back your impressions.
What You Get
Here’s what is included within your Basma box are the following items:

Something else that’s included free with your Basma purchase is a retainer. This is not the norm for this industry, and it has a £99 value.
Best of all, you’ll get free teleconsultations with licensed orthodontists once a month. These professionals will assess your progress to ensure that you are staying on track for your end results. They will also tell you if you have any deviations or corrections to make in your treatment plan. You can even ask questions or air concerns during these teleconsultations.
Basma has a results guarantee. If you aren’t satisfied with your results, you can get a full refund. Basma does require you to keep close tabs on your progress. This includes sending in monthly photos of your development via the private online portal you’re provided with when you purchase your aligners kit. If you have followed the instructions, keep track of your progress, and are unsatisfied, Basma will issue you a refund.
