Orthodontics in Turkey

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the correction and alignment of misaligned teeth. In Turkey, orthodontics goes beyond this, as it equally addresses bite and mastication issues.

Orthodontic Treatments

Orthodontic treatments come in different forms and applications, each fashioned for a precise purpose. In the following paragraphs, we will detail the different orthodontic treatments offered in Turkey and their functions

Fixed Braces

Fixed braces are little square brackets placed upon the teeth with a wire running through them. This appliance is aimed at straightening your teeth through pressure from the wire to the brackets. They are “fixed” because patients can’t take them off themselves; they’ll need dentists’ assistance.
It takes approximately 18-24 weeks to see final results with fixed braces. During this period, the patient will constantly keep them on and contact the dentist if it loosens or breaks.

Movable Braces

For minor misalignment cases, movable braces are an excellent treatment choice. These braces come in the form of plastic trays that can be snapped on and off the teeth. The said trays come in different pressure densities for each treatment step until final results are seen.
Made of stainless steel and acrylic, these braces make use of disintegrated stainless steel springs. These springs, when moving back to their original positions, pull your teeth into alignment.
Treatment with removable braces is estimated to take between 12-18 months, after which you should have reached the expected results.

Functional Appliances

Functional braces or appliances are devices that help reduce front teeth protrusion and overbite. They achieve this by adapting themselves to jaw muscles and encouraging them to grow together.

Orthodontic Headgear

Popularly used in pediatric dentistry, headgears are worn partly in and out of the mouth. This design is aimed at correcting and controlling dental and facial evolution and growth.

Braces Options

Dental Braces

Braces make use of bracket-shaped squares linked by a wire to align your teeth through pressure applied. Depending on the state of your teeth, you might have to go with either traditional, lingual, or porcelain bracket braces.

Invisalign/Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are great alternatives to braces when it comes to teeth alignment. With this method, patients are given a set of trays to snap onto their teeth. These trays will take about a week or two to shift the teeth, then will be swapped for another one. The tray swapping will go on until your teeth finally reach the desired alignment.


After straightening your teeth, you’ll want to make sure they stay right there. Retainers are meant to be worn after final results to help maintain the latter. They could either be fixed or removable, but their aim remains preventing teeth from shifting.

Benefits of Orthodontics

  • Straight Teeth: Crooked teeth are unappealing, more prone to accumulating bacteria and tartar, and most likely to contract tooth decay. Aligned teeth are aesthetic and are less likely to attract and conserve food particles. They are also easier to brush and floss, thus reducing chances of accumulating tartar and bacteria.
  • Self-Confidence: Who doesn't want a smile worth flaunting? Through orthodontics, your smile gets corrected, and your self-esteem when smiling or talking will be through the roof.
  • Wider Range of Activities: Being deprived of activities because of your teeth is quite unfair. After your orthodontic treatment, you will be able to play the flute and do everything your teeth didn't let you.
  • Better Oral Hygiene: By straightening your teeth, orthodontics makes oral hygiene recommendations easier to respect. Brushing and flossing become easier, less food gets trapped between teeth, and the accumulation of tartar and bacteria becomes less probable.
  • Improved Facial Shape: Misaligned teeth can ruin facial structure. Orthodontic appliances like headgears correct the shape and growth of the teeth, as well as the face bone structure.
  • Better Speech: Suffering from overbite and crooked teeth will put you through hell trying to communicate. Patients suffering from these difficulties have trouble pronouncing some sounds, and some sputter when speaking. Orthodontics puts this nightmare to an end and gives you normal speaking abilities.
