The first time I had some doubts about the intervențion , Due to the fact that the hair regenerates periodic,what I can say is that the result of a hair transplant is 100% successful. This revival comes after a period of 9 months waiting to see the result of the intervention. I recommend Flymedi and of course I recommend the person who was near me during the intervention Mr Mustafa. Mr. Mustafa is a person I rarely met. I can say that everything related to professionalism is on his side. I recommend to all those who want to have professional interventions, to have the highest confidence in Flymedi. Thank you Flymedi !

I came across FlyMedi online while looking for medical tourism options for septorhinoplasty in Turkey. I was contacted by FlyMedi's Nadia via email within hours of submitting for more information on their website. Nadia made herself available 24/7 via email and WhatsApp, even as I traveled across multiple time zones. Nadia provided multiple options in multiple locations with pros and cons and for each and stayed in touch throughout the process. I already recommended FlyMedi and specifically Nadia to friends and family considering Turkey for any medical tourism they may be considering. Thank you Nadia!

I'd been researching the procedure for a while and the cost in Australia was significantly higher than in Turkey. I came across the Flymedi website and within hours of submitting an enquiry, Nadia had reached out. She provided multiple quotes with different options, background on the doctors and hospitals. Nadia was available 24/7 and really helped me through everything from start to finish. Great business idea, exceptional staff and great customer service

Nurse Yeliz is adorable and has always been by my side. She was also always available and answered all my questions. I have felt very well, thanks again to all I am very satisfied.

Recommended For Metal Braces

Metal braces are recommended for patients who want to opt for orthodontic braces treatment and do not care about the fact that the braces will be visible. Most patients want to opt for metal braces in order to correct one or more of the following:

  • Gapped teeth
  • Overcrowding
  • Overbites, crossbites, and underbites
  • Other malocclusions

Not Recommended For Metal Braces

Metal braces are not recommended for patients with one or more of the following:

  • Inflammation of the oral cavity
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Deficient teeth
  • Paradontosis
  • Tooth decay

Overview

Metal braces for teeth are one of the most popular types of braces. Metal braces are the classic orthodontic treatment and the first option for most patients, despite the existence of other types such as lingual braces (which are placed behind the teeth) and Invisalign, also known as clear braces. This is due to the fact that even if some people may feel uncomfortable wearing metal braces, the majority of patients who want straighter teeth do not shy away from wearing visible braces.

Another advantage that metal braces have over other types is the cost: these are more affordable than other treatments which may be over the budget of some patients. It's also important to note that metal braces guarantee the same results as other braces, and the difference between them is purely aesthetic.

 

Clear Braces VS Metal Braces

Clear braces are becoming more and more popular among patients, but this increase in popularity is due to the fact that some people do not want to wear visible braces such as metal braces. Dentists and orthodontic specialists will more often than not recommend metal braces since they are more durable, and reliable, making the teeth straightening process easier in the long run.

How It Is Performed

The metal braces treatment is performed in two stages. First, an orthodontist will carefully analyze the patient's dental x-rays and dental pictures in order to create the braces. The second stage of the treatment is applying the custom braces on the patient's teeth. Most dentists will use an adhesive and bonding cement to fix the metal braces in place. The average metal braces for adults treatment can last between half a year and two years, depending on the severity of changes which need to be made. Some patients may also require dental surgery or extractions before the metal braces can be applied. 

Once the metal braces are applied, the patient will have to visit the dentist every few months for minor corrections. This will gradually lead to straighter teeth.

Risks

Although the metal braces risks and complications rate is very low, problems can still appear, just as with any type of orthodontic braces treatment. Risks and complications can include: 

  • Metal braces breaking - while metal braces are the most durable and reliable, there is a slight chance that they might break. The risk is still lower than with clear braces, for example. 
  • Mouth sores - during the first few months after the braces are applied, patients can experience sores. These should pass as you get more used to wearing braces
  • Tooth decay - dental braces increase the risk of tooth decay and developing plaque on your teeth - this is why it's mandatory to have excellent oral hygiene during the course of your treatment.
  • Allergic reaction to the dental braces - some patients may be allergic to metal. In these cases, the dentist would recommend another type of dental braces.

Side Effects

Metal braces side effects can include the following:

  • Tenderness of the gums
  • Soreness during the first few weeks
  • Pain and discomfort for a time after the metal braces are applied
  • Some patients may become lisp for a couple of weeks

Success Rates

Dental braces reviews set the average treatment success rate at 89%

Before And After

Patients need to devote extra time and care to their teeth while wearing dental braces. Plaque can form very easily around the braces, and this can lead to cavities or tooth decay. Brushing is a must, and mouthwashes are also recommended while wearing dental braces. 

The time required to wear dental braces depends on a number of factors: 

● The health of the patient’s teeth 
● The amount of correction that needs to be made 
● The health of supporting bone 
● The patient’s dental health issue 

Once the orthodontic braces treatment is finished, patients will be required to wear a retainer all the time, for at least 6 months. After that, patients will only have to wear it during night time. This is done in order to help the teeth maintain their new position. 

Faq

How Much Are Braces? 
As we have mentioned before, metal braces cost is lower than other types of braces, making them a tempting alternative to braces such as clear braces and Invisalign. 
As for metal braces cost itself, it varies between orthodontic specialists as well as between countries. Getting braces in Turkey or other medical tourism destination will definitely be cheaper than braces procedure in the USA or UK. 

Metal Braces vs. Ceramic Braces – What Is Better? 
Metal braces are statistically more resistant to pressure and damage than ceramic braces or clear braces. Additionally, they are cheaper than the other types of braces for teeth. Nevertheless, if you seek invisible braces, it is worth considering lingual braces or Invisalign. 

Is Teeth Straightening without Braces Possible? In general, orthodontists agree that teeth braces are the best solution for people of all age. Adult braces become increasingly popular, so there is no need to seek alternatives to braces. 

What are the Most Affordable Braces? Metal braces cost is usually lower than other types of braces for teeth, so it is safe to say that they are the most affordable braces so far.
