Angela went above and beyond my expectations. She is very friendly and you can always feel at ease contacting her. She made sure I was comfortable with our choice of surgeon Dr. Can Karaca and set up a video call for me. Always ready to help and answer any questions (she would always be available despite the 7 hour time difference)! I wasn’t really sure about traveling to Istanbul, Turkey for my procedure until I met Angela and she explained everything from start to finish and stood behind her words to always be of assistance. Mind you I have been researching for months now for a good doctor and went back and forth between waiting 2 years to get my surgery done in Canada or even traveling to Mexico for it! I was thinking Turkey would be a difficult route due to time difference and the distance but I’m very happy I chose to go to Turkey with Flymedi and I’m glad my agent was Angela Sabou! Do not hesitate to work with Flymedi and especially request Angela if you can!!! - a very satisfied client

Adonis Fertility International Caring Professionals

After trying IVF unsuccessfully in the US for many years Maria from Adonis Fertility International gave me hope. I was very impressed by her work ethic and I trusted she would work hard at helping us become parents. Her communication was top-notch. I choose Adonis because of Maria and then worked with Amy, Nancy, and Ivanna and ALL were Amazing. Everything is broken down for you in steps and very organized. There was always someone there to answer a question you may. Its been a very smooth process, with all the legal documents and made transporting the biomaterial stress-free. We are still in our beginning stages and I will give another review at the end but everything so far has been excellent and I would recommend Adonis to any US couple looking to try IVF and hopefully become parents.

Excellent service

Excellent service. I was really hesitant at first, because I’ve never done anything like this before, but Kirstie did a great job of answering all my questions & concerns, in a timely manner. I would highly recommend using this service.

At the beginning, I was very hesitant about having my surgeries, especially the idea of having them in Turkey, which is a country located across the ocean of where I come from, the United States of America. When I initially started my research, I came across Flymedi, and I strongly believe that connecting with them was the best decision I have made in regards of having my desired surgeries. After entering my contact information, I was contacted from Flymedi by an agent named Abud. On one hand, Abud has been a great assist and support to my journey, as he was involved in every step throughout the process. He was very responsive to all my concerns and inquiries before and after the operations. On the other hand, everyone at the clinic that I was referred to (EstEthica) was very nice and welcoming. The in-person consultant on site (Lamia) was extremely helpful and kind. She, along with the whole clinic staff, made me feel so comfortable and made the whole trip seem as smooth as possible, despite the discomfort after the surgeries. In terms of the results, I can not speak of this just yet as it has only been a week since I have had my operations. However, I will definitely come back within a couple of months to update my review and speak about the results and any other additional notes along the way. In a nutshell, all I can say that I am grateful for everything so far, and I truly appreciate everyone that was involved in this process! P.S. as a word of advice, if you are having a hair transplant operation, I highly recommend having it at least 3 - 4 days before your departure flight back home, as the post operation instructions are a bit intense and not being in a rush would significantly help with the recovery process.

Overview

Dental braces for teethor orthodontic braces are special dentistry devices applied by orthodontists in order to correct, align, and straighten teeth. Most patients opting for this procedure have one or more of the following:

  • Malocclusions
  • Overbites
  • Deep bites
  • Open bites
  • Crossbites
  • Crooked teeth
  • General flaws of the teeth and jaws

While most patients opt to use dental braces alone, as a cosmetic measure, others combine dental braces with other orthodontic treatments, such as widening the palate or widening the jaws.  

 

Braces for teeth come in different types, including:

Preparation

The dentist will need to see a set of dental x-rays before the treatment can begin. The dentist will analyze these x-rays and decide if the orthodontic braces are the right choice for the patient.

How It Is Performed

Most patients ask themselves how braces work. Here is the full procedure explained: Firstly, the teeth of the patient are checked and inspected thoroughly in order to see if this is the right procedure. Impressions of the teeth are then taken before carefully analyzing the patient's x-rays. By analyzing the x-rays and impressions, the dentist is able to determine the best treatment plan for the patient. Sometimes digital models can be created, and the patient will be able to see the results of the treatment even before starting it.

This type of orthodontic treatment can take between six months and two years, depending on the state of the patient's teeth. In some cases, surgery might be necessary before undergoing this treatment. The amount of time it takes to put the brakes on and the amount of time needed to keep them on are heavily dependent on the issue the patient is facing, and the types of dental braces applied. Generally speaking, adhesive and bonding cement is used to apply the braces and keep them in place.

Recovery

Patients will be required to visit the dentist regularly for adjustments – usually between 4 and 10 weeks after the orthodontic braces are fitted. During these appointments, the orthodontist can evaluate the patient's teeth and any progress made, while at the same time ensuring the desired result is achieved.

Risks

Orthodontic braces risks and complications can include: 

● Increased risk of tooth decay 
● Difficulty speaking 
● Mouth sores 
● Allergic reaction to the dental braces 
● Plaque 

Side Effects

Dental braces side effects can include the following: 

● Discomfort and pain, especially immediately after the dental braces are fitted 
● Soreness 
● Tenderness of the gums 

Success Rates

Reviews set the average dental braces success rate at 69.5% for adults and 100% for young adults such as teenagers.

Before And After

Before and after braces pictures might seem appealing, but patients are required to devote extra care for their teeth while having the braces in place. One of the biggest issues patients are facing is plaque – which can form very easily and lead to tooth decay or cavities. Brushing is mandatory for all patients, and mouthwashes are highly recommended during the treatment.

The total treatment time depends on several factors, including:

  • The patient’s dental health
  • The state of the supporting bone tissue
  • The corrections which need to be made
  • Any other dental issues the patient may be having

After finishing their orthodontic treatment, patients will need to wear a retainer during the day and night for at least six months. After this period has ended, the retainer will only be worn during the night. The retainer’s role is to keep the teeth in their new position.

Faq

- What kind of foods do I need to avoid while wearing dental braces?  Hard foods and sticky foods need to be avoided during the orthodontic braces treatment. Taffy, caramel, hard pretzels, and carrots can actually damage the braces themselves and prolong the treatment. 

- What is the least visible type of dental braces? 
Invisalign braces, as the name suggests, are a type of invisible braces, but it has several disadvantages. 

- At what age should my child have orthodontic treatment? The sooner, the better – certain conditions such as teeth crowding, underbites, overbites, and others are much easier to correct when the patient is young, and the jaw is still growing. This doesn't necessarily mean that the treatment won't work for adults as well, but if the patient is young, the treatment will take less time, and the results will be better.
