Flymedi- Abud Alielah

I found flymedi based on a recommendation by a friend of the family, I was given Abud contact with high recommendation of his service and I was not disappointed at all ! From day one Abud was very helpful and professional. Abud found for me the suitable medical center and the perfect surgeon! He was always available day and night and on weekends as well and very patient with my unlimited questions and inquiries :) and very clear with provided information. After agreeing on the price, place, doctor and dates of the surgery, Abud took care of and planned everything from the day of arrival until the departure, including the hotel, driver, dates of surgery, consultations and more. I am very satisfied, everything was great 👍🏻 I would definitely use his services again I definitely recommend ✅ ✅ ✅

Never expected such a great hospitality…

Never expected such a great hospitality from Flymedi as a foreigner. From the time I landed in Turkey to the time I come back in my country I was treated as a friend. Thank you Yasmin for guiding me all the way. As you promised, I was not placed on the wait list.

Made my trip overseas so much easier!

Yasmin was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! She told me how to get a travel visa and luckily warned me of any travel restrictions that were going on! I had to rebook my trip twice due to covid & restrictions and Yasmin handled everything on the hospitals end. One of the times I had to rebook it was because my layover was in london and Turkey banned all incoming travel from the UK. The airline never notified me so if it wasn't for Yasmin warning me I would have gotten on the plane and been stuck in london! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Yasmin made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

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.
