It is a branch of science that aims to correct position disorders in teeth and jaw structures.

With the eruption of the milk teeth and the eruption of the permanent teeth, some irregularities can be seen in the tooth arch, which has a very smooth appearance. There can be many reasons for these irregularities. The way the child was born, the drugs taken by the mother during pregnancy, the nutritional habits, the use of pacifiers and bottles, rotten teeth, prematurely extracted milk teeth, etc., and genetic factors also play a role.

Orthodontic treatment is of two types, fixed and mobile (the patient can put on and take off). Age factor is important in some cases in orthodontic treatments. It is important to solve the problem at this age, as it will be easier for patients to accept the treatment in childhood. However, orthodontic treatment is possible in adult ages and materials that can eliminate the aesthetic concerns of the patients are used. 


The most common acquired cause of orthodontic disorders is early loss of primary teeth. Solving the problems that occur in the tooth related to the milk tooth sequence as soon as possible, that is, preserving the continuity of the sequence will bring the solution to this problem.
The cost of regaining lost primary teeth is at least 20 - 25 times more than a placeholder or any clinical treatment.


are the main force-transmitting elements of the fixed orthodontic treatment principle. It is adhered at the beginning of the treatment and remains on the teeth until the end of the treatment. There are varieties according to the needs;

Estetik Braketler


Metal Brackets


Lingual Brackets (applied from the inner surface of the teeth)



 Orthodontic treatment can be performed in every case with healthy teeth, gums and bones. Age is a criterion related to the total duration of the treatment and the technique to be chosen. Problems that are not limited to only the teeth, but also include the jaws, are more closely related to age. Your child's ability to have a healthy closing relationship depends on a small sensitivity that you show. Regardless of your age, you and your child Never hesitate to have a specialist check any position changes that don't seem "normal" to you for your child.


There is no harm in either the material directly or the treatments as long as it is applied correctly. However, the wrong treatment methods applied by non-specialized dentists, which are frequently encountered in our country, and the treatments applied to people who do not even fully perform normal oral care can be indirectly harmful.

Undoubtedly, all parents would like to give a good answer to this question. However, in order to give these answers, the concepts of "normal" tooth sequence and jaw must be defined. A dentist will be able to make this definition for you. For this, you need to go to an Orthodontist. The treatments that may be in question are important that can affect your child's whole life.

Now we suggest parents do a little test. Call your child or children with you, suggest that they grit their teeth and look carefully.

  1. Does the upper row of teeth grasp the lower row from the outside?  

  2.   Do the mandibular and maxillary molars meet? 

You can also apply this mini test to yourself in front of the mirror. Have your answers verified by an expert as soon as possible.


Chewing dysfunction, jaw joint disorders and phonation (speech) disorders are criteria that can be evaluated more priority than aesthetics according to the individual.

The cause of orthodontic anomalies can be hereditary or acquired (acquired). For example, acquired causes such as bruises, infections, extractions, and bad habits such as long-term false breast, bottle use, thumb sucking, inserting foreign objects into the mouth ... However, none of these are unsolvable. It will be very easy for families to focus on them.  

  • Will my child suck his thumb at night damage his teeth? 
    If the habits we call bad habits, such as thumb sucking, pacifier use, bottle use, nail biting, etc., still continue when the child is 3.5 years old, they should definitely be stopped. If it continues, the effects of these habits become permanent and the child needs serious and long-term orthodontic treatment. Thumb sucking is the most difficult of these habits to quit. When you diagnose thumb sucking in your child, it is useful to get under the control of an orthodontist.  

  • My child is snoring at night while he sleeps and his mouth is open during the day, I see that there are some deteriorations in his teeth, could it be a connection? 
    Yup. People who have difficulty in breathing through their nose try to compensate for the problem in their nose by automatically starting to breathe through their mouths. Orthodontic problems often occur in individuals with mouth breathing. Therefore, you should be under the control of an otolaryngologist and an orthodontist.


  • What is the duration of orthodontic treatment? 
    Depending on the condition of the case and the age of our patient, it may vary between 6 months and 36 months.  


  • What should I pay attention to during my treatment? Are there restrictions? 
    It is important for the success of the treatment that the wires (brackets) adhered to your teeth stay on the surface of the teeth without breaking them. During your treatment, you should avoid the following foods; (or you should eat it by cutting it into small pieces),

    Hard foods, nuts, hard candies 
    Fruits such as apples, plums, quince 
    Foods such as chewing gum and Turkish delight that can stick to your teeth and are difficult to clean 
    Acidic drinks such as cola  


  • Will there be pain or tenderness during treatment? 
    In the first days of wearing the braces, there may be mild irritation on the inner surfaces of the cheeks and lips and pain during chewing on the teeth. Regardless of the degree of your complaints, you will not feel that you have wires in your mouth within a maximum of 10 days.  


  • Can my teeth deteriorate again after they are fixed? 
    After your teeth are straightened, your braces will be removed from the tooth surfaces. After this process, reinforcement devices will be applied to you in order to maintain the current situation. If these devices are not used for the recommended times and if you do not come to the control for a long time, there is a possibility that your teeth will deteriorate again.   


  • What problems might I encounter if I don't get my teeth fixed? 
    Irregularities in your teeth will become more severe as you age. In other words, the appearance of your teeth will become more uncomfortable in the long term. 

    The fact that your teeth are not closing properly can cause more pressure on your jaw joints than normal, and may lead to problems such as mouth opening and closing restrictions and jaw locking in the long term. 

    Because of the irregularity in your teeth, the gap between the teeth and some surfaces will be more difficult to clean, so the formation of caries will be more than an individual with regular teeth.   


  • How can I diagnose an orthodontic problem in my teeth (my child's teeth)? 
    Our patients mostly consult a specialist in cases of severe crookedness where the canine teeth are up. If there is no remarkable situation at that level, orthodontic problems are noticed at a late age and patients give up orthodontic treatment by saying "I can't be treated at this age" and either prefer to stay that way or have their healthy teeth cut and have prosthetics. 

    My suggestion is that every individual over the age of 3 should go to a dentist check-up, ideally once every 6 months, if you say this happens very often, once a year at the latest. Even if the doctor you go to is not an orthodontist, conscious dentists will diagnose the orthodontic problem and direct you to specialists.  


  • I have pain in front of my ears, can this pain be related to the disorder in my teeth? 
    Pain in the jaw and facial system can be caused by teeth. But it is difficult to say that it is definitely caused by the teeth, because there can be many reasons that can cause this pain. In such a case, the treatment of the teeth is one of the primary procedures to be performed.  


  • Will there be any stains on my teeth after removing the braces? 
    If you are sensitive to the cleaning of the teeth, it is not possible to leave a stain. The discolorations referred to as stains are actually rotten starting areas.  


  • Some teeth had to be extracted for treatment. Is it okay to lose teeth? 
    Tooth extraction for the purpose of orthodontic treatment is mostly not desired by the parents of our patients. However, the decision of tooth extraction ensures that the result of the treatment is more successful and the result obtained is more permanent in cases where the teeth cannot be placed on the jawbones.
