Orthodontic treatments are treatments that we perform by applying force to the teeth. For this strength, we use various devices in Turkey, such as braces, clear aligners, and removable acrylic appliances for young children. In Turkey, we can treat young children, teenagers and adults in braces treatments. It is possible for people of all ages to receive orthodontic treatment in Turkey if their gums and bone structure are healthy. We provide braces treatment with our highly specialized orthodontist, Dr. Şebnem Deniz Güneş, in Antalya, Turkey. She is one of the leading orthodontic dentists in Antalya. As Adalya Dental Centre Turkey, we provide our patients with excellent treatment results in braces treatments as in other dental areas. Additionally, the cost and price of our dental braces are very affordable in Turkey compared to UK and Europe.

In orthodontic treatments, in Turkey, we fix the teeth and jaw structures with fixed, non-removable dental braces, removable devices such as removable clear aligners (Invisalign) or using lingual braces applied by the tongue. So, you can get braces in Turkey at our dental centre. In addition, you can get braces in Turkey at affordable price compared to many country. We also use functional, extraoral devices to correct jaw structures. However, braces treatments are not only treatments that can be achieved with the efforts of orthodontists.
In orthodontic treatment, patients should carefully follow all the recommendations that are told to be made. Therefore, patients should be patient and actively participate in the treatment process. In other words, almost half of the success of the treatment depends on the cooperation of the patients.

Types of Dental Braces Treatment in Turkey
- Metal Braces
- Ceramic Braces (Clear Braces)
- Lingual Braces (Invisible Braces)
- Clear Aligners (Invisalign)
Metal Braces in Turkey
Metal braces are one of the most commonly we used in Turkey and most durable treatments. Generally, we use it more in individuals between the ages of 12-18. There are 2 types of application ways of metal braces, from the front surface and the back surface of the teeth. We place the brackets and wires we use in the treatment of lingual braces, which is another treatment option, on the inner surfaces of the teeth instead of the visible surfaces. Therefore, with this method, we obtain tooth movement. In cases where aesthetic anxiety is high, we evaluate and apply lingual braces and invisalign braces options in Turkey Antalya according to the conditions and demands of the patients.
Foods You Should Not Eat in The Treatments of Metal Braces
It is extremely important for the success and duration of the treatment that the wires are not damaged in any way during the treatment of metal braces. Therefore, there are certain foods that should not be eaten after metal braces treatment in Turkey. As long as the patients follow these rules carefully, they do not have any problems with metal braces treatments.
- You should not chew gum during the braces treatment process.
- Avoid foods such as cookies and popcorn.
- You should eat foods with seeds such as plums, cherries and olives by removing the seeds with your hands, not with our mouth.
- Don’t eat sticky food like jelly beans.
- Avoid croquant chocolate.
- Bagels, toast, etc. you should usually eat the food not by tearing it with your teeth, but by tearing it with your hands.
- You should not bite hard objects such as pencil heads.
- Since acidic beverages increase the risk of caries, you should consume as little as possible.
Invisalign in Turkey
Invisalign braces is one of the most frequently used orthodontic treatment methods in our dental centre in Antalya Turkey. We use removable transparent plaques instead of fixed braces in this treatment. Therefore, Invisalign treatment has many advantages.
Since the plaques are transparent, it is very difficult to be noticed. Therefore, it is a more aesthetic treatment method than other braces treatments in terms of appearance. In this way, our patients can adapt to their treatments more easily. One of the most important advantages of Invisalign treatment is that it is removable. In this way, people can remove their plates for a short time while eating, brushing their teeth or for an important meeting. Therefore, it provides a great comfort to the person.
During the Invisalign treatment process, we do not have any restrictions on the eating and drinking of our patients. Patients do not have to avoid hard foods as in the treatment of metal braces.
In Invisalign Turkey treatment, we transfer the records of our patients to digital media. So, at the beginning of the treatment in Turkey Antalya, we show our patients the shape their teeth will take after the invisalign braces. However, invisalign treatment is a form of treatment that requires a lot of patient discipline.
Our patients should wear these plates for at least 20-22 hours a day. In this way, the treatment process will proceed in a healthy way as we planned and the success rate of the treatment will increase a lot. Otherwise, the treatment will fail.

Lingual Braces in Turkey
Nowadays, patients who demand orthodontic treatment are also in their 30s, 40s and 50s, so the need for braces should not be visible at all or should be more aesthetic. Therefore, at this point, the braces treatments that can be applied from the back surface of the tooth, called lingual braces treatment, come into play. It is a type of treatment in which brackets and wires are applied completely from the inside and it is not possible to see them from the outside.
In the treatment of lingual braces in Turkey, wires are used like external treatments and the wires are changed monthly. Although the period of getting used to the internal strings is similar to the external strings, it takes about 1-2 weeks for the tongue to get used to the new strings.
In the treatment of lingual braces in Turkey Antalya, we can obtain the same results as in external treatments. So, we can both relieve the aesthetic concerns of our patients and achieve good treatment results.
Are Braces Expensive in Turkey?
Dental braces prices are not expensive in Turkey. Compared to America, Europe and UK prices, the price of braces is at least 1 in 4 lower in Turkey.
Ceramic Braces in Turkey (Clear Braces)
We prefer clear braces (ceramic braces) more in Antalya Turkey in cases where there are aesthetic concerns and in the treatment of adults. This treatment method, we apply porcelain brackets instead of metal brackets that we routinely stick on the teeth.
In the treatment of clear braces, when the patient smiles, porcelain braces look more aesthetic because they are the same color as the tooth. Therefore, adult patients who are uncomfortable with the metal appearance prefer ceramic braces method more in Turkey. We can also apply clear braces to any patient who can be treated with metal braces.
However, these braces also have some disadvantages. In the treatment of porcelain braces, the treatment time is slightly longer due to the greater friction. Especially in tooth extraction treatments, the duration can be extended between 6-12 months. Additionally, these porcelain braces need to be maintained very well. Patients should avoid yellowing of braces by avoiding too much coloring food consumption and smoking.

How Long Does It Take Dental Braces Treatments in Turkey?
Dental braces treatments differ in Turkey according to age, type of problem, motivation of the patient for treatment and treatment plans of physicians. We can complete the treatment of simple crowding that does not require tooth extraction in 8-12 months.
However, we can complete the treatment of severe disorders such as lower jaw forward and backward in 2.5 years. In addition, the biological structure of the tissues and their response to treatment may differ in each individual.
At braces treatments, which are started at an early age in Turkey, treatment times can be very variable if the treatment is performed with removable appliances that can be inserted and removed before the deciduous teeth are completely changed. These treatments can be completed in 6 months, or it can take years if it is expected until all milk teeth are replaced.
Sometimes we start the treatment with removable appliances and try to achieve orthopedic effects before the growth is completed. Then, we can take a break from the treatment for a while and correct the jaw closure and tooth alignment with fixed appliances in later ages. This type of 2-stage treatments can be seen as spread over 5-6 years in total. But active treatment times are shorter.
Time Differences in Treatments
Orthodontic treatments in adults may be slightly longer than in children. This is because the elasticity of bone tissue is less than in children. However, when the treatment processes of children and adults are compared, there is no significant difference. Fixed braces treatments on permanent teeth take an average of 2 years. During this time, we change and correct the positions, angles, occlusions of the teeth.
However, even though the active treatment is finished at the end of this period, there is a need for a process called reinforcing treatment in order not to deteriorate the straight teeth obtained.
After the dental braces are removed, we apply a reinforcement treatment either with fixed wires that are inserted from the inside or with removable transparent plaques for an average of 1 year in Turkey Antalya. Otherwise, the teeth that were aligned very properly with orthodontic treatment may deteriorate more or less after years.
In Which Situations We Cannot Apply Dental Braces Treatment in Turkey?
- To be able to apply braces treatment, oral and dental health must be very good. Therefore, it is very important that the person does not have tooth and gum problems. In advanced gingival problems, if this is accompanied by bone resorption; that is, if there is osteoporosis in the bone surrounding the tooth, we do not start braces treatment in Turkey in such cases. First of all, we take this gum and bone resorption problem under control. Then we start orthodontic treatment.
- In cases called ankylosis, that is, if the root of the tooth is attached to the jawbone it is in, we do not start braces treatment in Antalya, Turkey. Because it will not be possible to move these teeth, braces treatment cannot be successful.
- We do not start braces treatment in Turkey for people in the last period of pregnancy. Because a lot of calcium from the mother’s bones mixes into the blood close to the birth, a lot of wobble is seen in the teeth when braces are placed. Therefore, we do not prefer braces treatment in the last stages of pregnancy. After a period of 6 months from birth, we can start braces treatment in Turkey.
Reinforcement Therapy After Braces
When we remove the braces after dental braces treatments in Turkey, we perform various applications in order to properly line up the teeth and protect their current condition. These applications that we apply to prevent the teeth from deteriorating after orthodontic treatment are called reinforcing treatment.
Unfortunately, the treatment process does not end with the removal of the braces. Generally, we provide protection of the result obtained with a fixed wire applied to the lower jaw from the back of the teeth. Again, a second passive treatment process begins, which will ensure the permanence of the treatment with transparent plaques that can be placed on the upper and lower jaw for a certain period at night.
The use of clear plaques in reinforcement therapy
We apply clear plaque after braces to patients for a period of 1 year, day and night for the first 6 months, and only night for the last 6 months. Because while the teeth are moving in the jawbone, there is a certain amount of melting in both the root and the bone around the root, and when the treatment is finished, the teeth actually wobble a little. Just as when a part of us is broken, a fixation is made to fuse the fractured area and it heals, this is the case in orthodontic treatments.
After a certain period of time, an ideal relationship is achieved between all teeth and the jawbone. In this way, after the braces treatment in Turkey, there is no regression, no tooth defect. However, if the recommendations and rules given by the physician are not followed, a deterioration in the teeth may occur again in orthodontic treatments.
