Orthodontic Treatment in Turkey, Izmir

What is Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry used to correct the position of teeth and jaws. Orthodontic treatment can provide a variety of benefits, from improving aesthetic appearance to improving chewing functions. Orthodontic treatment is performed with various appliances used to correct the position of teeth and jaws. These appliances apply pressure to ensure the movement of the teeth.

How is Orthodontic Treatment Applied?

Orthodontic treatment is planned and applied by an orthodontist. During the first examination, the orthodontist evaluates the condition of the teeth and jaw. Following this evaluation, a treatment plan is created. Orthodontic treatment can often take several months or years. Treatment duration varies depending on the degree of tooth and jaw irregularities.


What are the appliances used in orthodontic treatment?

Dental braces (braces): It is the most commonly used orthodontic appliance. Brackets are used by bonding to the surfaces of the teeth. Brackets allow the movement of teeth by being connected to each other with wires.

Invisalign (Clear Aligner): These are orthodontic appliances that offer a more aesthetic option than brackets. Transparent aligners can be attached and removed from the teeth.

Retainers: These are appliances used to preserve the results obtained at the end of orthodontic treatment. Retainers prevent the teeth from returning to their previous positions.

Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment

Improving the aesthetic appearance: Orthodontic treatment can correct dental irregularities that disrupt the aesthetic appearance, such as crowded teeth, spaced teeth, crooked teeth.

Improving chewing functions: Orthodontic treatment improves chewing functions by ensuring the jaw closes properly.

Maintaining gum health: Orthodontic treatment reduces the risk of gum diseases by ensuring proper alignment of teeth.

Correcting speech disorders: Orthodontic treatment can help correct some speech disorders.
