Golden braces. They look unconventional. Suitable for allergy sufferers, as well as those patients who wish to emphasize their individuality and status.
These are the most expensive and one of the most discreet braces in Turkey, which are at the peak of popularity. They are aesthetic, the doctor matches the color of the teeth, which makes the patient’s smile natural.
Ceramic systems are of 2 types:
- polycrystalline – opaque, partially transparent;
- monocrystalline – completely transparent, with a sparkling effect.
Patients note that these systems fit snugly to the teeth and do not irritate the gums.
However, with many advantages, ceramic braces also have some disadvantages:
- high price;
- longer wearing process;
- large size (compared to metal ones);
- may cause increased friction between the archwire and bracket groove;
- unpleasant process of removing braces from tooth enamel.
Ceramic braces are suitable for those who have a darker shade of teeth.
These are outward-facing braces that are made from artificially grown sapphire crystals. This is a transparent and durable type of braces. They do not accumulate plaque and do not stain. Orthodontists in Turkey recommend installing these systems for patients with light teeth.
Sapphire braces in Turkey are in demand among many foreign patients for several reasons:
- they are invisible to others;
- caring for them is very simple;
- affordable cost;
- they do not cause foreign body sensations in the mouth.
The disadvantages include a lot of friction between the bracket groove and the archwire, which is why the bite normalization process is slower than with metal brackets.
Lingual Braces in Turkey
The main advantage of these systems is that they are placed on the inside of the teeth, so they are invisible. Among the disadvantages are:
- possible problems with speech in the first 2 weeks after installation;
- long period of teeth alignment;
- increased requirements for care.
Lingual braces in Turkey can be made from different materials – ceramics, metal, and gold.
Combination of different types
Most often, when choosing braces in Turkey, patients pay attention to the cost. A good solution would be to install combined systems. For example, in noticeable places (upper jaw, front teeth), it’s necessary to install ceramic braces and put metal braces on all other teeth. It is also popular to install a lingual system on the upper jaw and ceramic or metal on the lower.
For many foreign patients, it is important how much it will cost to get braces in Turkey. The combined option will save a lot. In addition, getting used to lingual braces on one jaw is easier than on both at once.
After removing the braces, the orthodontist in Turkey uses retainers – special devices for fixing teeth. This is an important stage of treatment, which allows to avoid displacement of the teeth after alignment, because after the removal of the braces, the teeth still retain mobility for some time and can return to their original place.
Retainers can be:
- removable – plates, mouthguards;
- non-removable – springs, wires.
Most often, doctors use non-removable models and fix them on the inner surface of the teeth.
