    What is Orthodontic Treatment?

    Orthodontic treatment not only improves the look of your smile but your health as well. Straight teeth are easier to clean and less likely to get tooth decay or injured.

    People of any age can benefit from orthodontic treatment. Teeth that are crooked, crowded, or that stick out affect the way your teeth look and work.If you are not happy with the way your teeth look or work, our orthodontic treatment at Istanbul Dental Clinics will help you.

    Orthognathic Treatment

    This is an aesthetic jaw surgery  aimed at repositioning either or both jaws in patients with large jaw-divergence compared in sizes. Further, when the jaws are abnormally positioned in connection to the skull, this treatment is undertaken.

    Why is Orthodontic Treatment needed?

    Orthodontic treatment straightens your teeth and corrects the problems with the bite to improve the appearance of the teeth and how they work. It can also help to look after the long-term health of your teeth, gums and jaw joints, by spreading the biting pressure over all your teeth*Braces or other appliances are used to put gentle pressure on your teeth. Over a number of months or years this pressure can move your teeth into the right position.

    Orthodontic treatments are performed by an orthodontist, who is a dentistry specialty that addresses the diagnosis, prevention, and correction of mal-positioned teeth and jaws, and misaligned bite patterns. It may also address the modification of facial growth, known as dentofacial orthopedics. (Wikipedia)

    There are a lot of treatment options these days, from retainers to clear aligners to invisible, metal, ceramic and micro braces. They each have their uses.

    Our experienced orthodontists know what to use and when to use it, and will work with you to make the best decision – for your best smile. 

    The types of orthodontic treatmen can be listed as follows:

    • Dental Braces
    • Invisalign
    • Orthognathic Treatment
    • Headgear
    • Retainers
    • Teeth Removal

    Dental braces

    Dental braces exist in different types and they comprise metal braces, clear braces, and
    self-ligating braces, among others. 

    Braces are mainly used as orthodontic treatment, and unlike the past; they are modernized, and when worn, people aren’t likely to notice. Additionally, braces can either be fixed or removable. As an orthodontic treatment appliance, fixed braces are used to correct or guide the teeth into the absolute position.

    Types of Braces


    Dental braces are used by orthodontists to correct the alignment and straightening of the teeth. Braces put pressure on the teeth, and move them in the desired direction.

    While the majority get their braces when they are younger, adults can get braces too. Braces these days are hardly noticeable and offer excellent results in a short time. The types of braces can be classified into groups and this groups change according to the orthodontist’s approach. 

    Let’s see the main type of dental braces.

    Metal Braces

    Also known as traditional braces are commonly used by kids for its affordability. They are metal brackets that are applied to your teeth, and the metal wire which is threaded on the brackets is meant to exert pressure on the teeth and finally move them.

    Lingual Braces

    Lingual braces are applied on the inner side of the teeth and work similarly to metal braces. Unlike metal braces that use small elastic bands to keep the metal wire in place and they aren’t visible from the outside unless patient opens his/her mouth. If you have an extreme orthodontic issue, it might not be an ideal treatment for you.

    Self-Ligating Braces

    Self-ligating braces use a built-in system. Thus they are easier to clean and require fewer visits to the orthodontist. With this type of brace, the bracket and wire system is significantly functional. Concretely, they are widely used by the experts today; contrary to the conventional method. Besides, they are not as painful as other types.


    Headgear is still used as an orthodontic treatment for some moderate-to-severe conditions, although it’s becoming rare. Orthodontic headgear works to correct malocclusion and teeth misalignment effectively in children, and is still in use.


    Retainers are pieces of plastic or metal that are custom-made for each person and usually used during the final process of treatment; it can either be fixed or removable.

    They’re made to match the shape of your mouth and the alignment of your teeth and no two retainers are the same. When incorporated, this treatment holds the teeth while the gum and bones are moved to a new spot. You can permanently straighten your teeth if you consistently wear a retainer for the better part of your lifetime.

    There are two general kinds of retainers:

    • Fixed. These are made of thin, custom-fitted wire that is bonded to the tongue-side of your child’s upper or lower teeth.
    • Removable. These can be put in and taken out daily by your child. They can be wire retainers (made of wire and a plastic-like material) or clear retainers (transparent trays made of a plastic-like material).

    Invisalign is a series of custom-made clear braces that cover your teeth and gently pull them into the proper position over time.

    Invisalign treatment is invisible as well as removable at all times. Although Invisalign aligners may not be completely invisible, these clear coverings fit tightly over your teeth and are much less noticeable than the brackets and wires of traditional braces.

    The only downside to owning an Invisalign is that it is expensive but still; Invisalign is possibly our most popular and the best orthodontic treatment at Istanbul Dental Clinics.

    Orthodontic treatment with Clear Aligner (Invisalign) is an aesthetic orthodontic treatment option made without the use of dental braces. Thanks to technological advances, many orthodontic problems can now be corrected with the Invisalign treatment. Invisalign treatment options which are suitable for all needs for children, teenagers and adults are made in our clinic.

    Procedure of Invisalign

    Before the commencing of treatment, records of the dental structures of the patients are taken. These records are transferred to the digital media, approximately how the teeth will recover at the end of the treatment. Thanks to this advanced technology all this information is obtained prior the treatment. In the same way we can understand how many plaques need to be used to achieve the desired goal of the treatment.

    However, since it is not possible to imitate the response of living oral tissues in the digital environment, this data is not a definitive result. It is possible to give an estimated amount of time.

    Advantages of Invisalign


    1. Due to the fact that it can be worn and replaced at any time on special occasions (engagement, wedding, etc.) you do not have to take a break for your orthodontic treatment, you can laugh as you want during your treatment.
    2. Your oral care will be very comfortable because there are no braces.
    3. Since the plaques are removed while eating, you can eat whatever you want. There are no stiff restrictions as in dental braces treatment with the Invisalign treatment.
    4. In other orthodontic treatment options, an orthodontist check-up is required once a month. During Clear Aligner(Invisalign) treatment, you can go for a check-up at longer intervals (every 2-3 months).

    Disadvantages of Invisalign

    The only disadvantage of invisalign is that it is a treatment based on patient compliance. Effective results can be obtained if the plaques are worn regularly for 20-22 hours a day. If patients do not wear their plates regularly, treatment progress slows down and the process becomes prolonged.

    Cost of Invisalign
    The most commonly asked question from our patients is ‘how much does invisalign treatment cost?’ Clear Aligner (Invisalign) price varies according to the disorder in the mouth structure of the person and the number of plaques to be used. The Clear Aligner (Invisalign) brand used for this purpose is also an important element that determines the price.

    In our clinic, the most preferred and worldwide well known brand, Clear Aligner (Invisalign) is applied to our patients. Unproven systems are never used at Istanbul Dental Clinics.

    How Do I Know
    if I Need Orthodontic Treatment?

    Here are some problems with your teeth that may require orthodontics:

    Overbite – In this case, the upper front teeth appear to stick out over the lower teeth.

    Underbite – Here, the lower teeth may appear too far forward, while the upper teeth are set too far back.

    Crossbite – You know you have a crossbite when your upper teeth fit behind your lower teeth when your mouth is closed.

    Open bite – Some people have a vertical gap between the front lower and upper teeth when biting down. This is called an open bite.

    Misplaced midline – Here, the center of your upper and lower front teeth don’t line up.

    Spacing – In this case, your teeth don’t seem to fill up your mouth. There appear to be random gaps or spaces between teeth.

    Crowding – This is what happens when the dental ridge in your mouth doesn’t have room for all your teeth.

    However, only your orthodontist can correctly determine which orthodontic treatment is right for you.

    Using diagnostic tools such as clinical exams, plastic models of your teeth, and X-rays, your orthodontist will develop a treatment plan that works for you and your teeth.

    In order to understand your current dental situation and to decide what orthodontic treatment is best for you, please  contact our experienced team at dental centre in Istanbul.

    Rarely though, tooth removal may be necessary at some point. It’s typically done to enhance and correct the placement of the subsequent tooth/teeth.

    The best time is generally during childhood, but adults can have orthodontic treatment too – and more and more are doing so. Age is less important than having the right number of teeth. In children it may be necessary to wait for enough teeth to come through before starting treatment.
