Braces abroad

girl in white shirt with bracesDental tourism is a good way to get affordable dental treatment abroad, including orthodontic treatment, even though braces require follow-up visits, getting braces abroad is still more affordable than the cost of orthodontic treatment UK. 

What is orthodontic treatment? The purpose of orthodontic treatment is to align the teeth into the correct position to offer the patient a proper chewing function. 

There are to orthodontic systems:

  • Traditional braces: This system uses braces attached to the teeth surface and connected to each other through a wire. There are different types of braces since these can be made of different materials to make them less noticeable to the naked eye.
  • Clear aligners: This is an innovative system that uses trays made of almost invisible material, the trays fit over the teeth and there is no need to use wires, this makes them not only highly aesthetic but also way more comfortable than braces. 

clear bracesEven though the systems implement completely different appliances, they both work in the same way: Exerting light pressure on key points of the denture to slowly move the teeth into the ideal position.  

Can you get braces abroad? Of course, this not only allows the patient to get cheap braces abroad but also some of the best quality treatments in Europe. Contrary to what many people think, affordable prices do not mean low quality, in fact, some dental tourism destinations hold international recognition for their high standards on dental services. 

The types of braces abroad are the same as in the UK, regardless of whether the patient requires adult braces, teen braces or even braces for kids, these are:

  • Traditional metal braces: Typical dental braces attached to the teeth surface.
  • Ceramic braces: Ceramic materials are similar to the natural colour of the teeth.
  • clear aligners (2)Damon braces: Also known as self-ligating braces can be made of metal or clear materials, unlike traditional braces, these do not require elastic bands, which makes them more hygienic and aesthetic. 
  • Lingual braces: These are just like normal metal braces but instead of being attached to the outer surface of the teeth, these are braces behind the teeth, which makes them go completely unnoticed from the outside. 
  • Clear braces: Also known as invisible braces or clear aligners are removable invisible trays that fit over the teeth. The most popular brand of clear braces is Invisalign braces.  

Braces abroad are the best option for patients looking for affordable prices, especially if they need braces for adults UK since the NHS only covers orthodontic treatment for people under the age of 18.
