Payment Plans For Braces & Orthodontics

Types of Treatment
Dr. Turke and the orthodontics team of Turke Orthodontics in Tampa, FL, and Brandon, FL, offer the most advanced braces for children and adults, including metal braces, Damon braces, Invisalign, Invisalign Teen, and clear braces. We can even help you achieve your confident smile up to 50% faster!
TP Braces
Committed to using the latest in technological advancements to treat his patients, Dr. Turke uses the Tip-Edge PLUS elite bracketing system. The miniature brackets and light wire technique work in tandem to gently, effectively, and efficiently move the teeth into their desired position. The special Tip-Edge® technology also gives you a straight, beautiful smile in fewer appointments than with traditional braces.
Damon Braces
In a continued effort to provide you with the latest in available orthodontic technology, Dr. Turke offers the Damon braces in Tampa & Brandon, FL, to our patients. Damon braces are a light wire system using a self-ligating (tie-less) bracket available in both metal and ceramic materials. Damon braces in Brandon, FL, are gentle, fast, and efficient as they move teeth, and they require fewer office visits than traditional metal braces.
A beautiful, healthy smile can have a big impact on one’s life. A nice smile with straight teeth will improve how others perceive you and, more importantly, how you perceive yourself. People with beautiful smiles traditionally demonstrate higher levels of confidence, self-esteem, and approachability. If you’ve always wanted a perfect smile without the look of braces, Invisalign in Tampa & Brandon, FL, may be the right choice for you or your teen!
Invisalign Teen
Invisalign Teen in Tampa & Brandon, FL, is a practical and highly sought-after course of orthodontic treatment. There is no longer any need for your teen to feel self-conscious about wearing metal braces, to be concerned about playing a musical instrument or participating in athletics, or even to worry about how metal braces may affect his or her social life. No more worrying about pictures for quinceañeras, homecoming, prom, or the yearbook! Invisalign Teen is a clear, removable, more comfortable alternative to metal braces.
Gold Braces
The distinguishing cosmetic option of gold braces has the same advantages of traditional, “tried and true” metal braces. While some people consider metal braces to be antiquated, today’s metal braces are smaller, sleeker, and far more advanced than they were ten years ago. Conventional metal braces may not be the quickest or newest method of straightening teeth, but they can often be the best option for optimal results.
The retainer we use in our Tampa orthodontics office and our Brandon orthodontics office is custom-made out of clear plastic to fit your unique teeth. Using retainers is an integral part of any successful orthodontic treatment plan. The length of time a retainer must be worn varies for each person, but it is essential after having your braces removed. During the process of wearing braces, your teeth have been moved into the desired position, but they are not yet settled into the gum and jaw. Wearing a retainer helps to further set your teeth in their new position.

I had an amazing experience at Dr. Turke’s office. Everything went so smoothly, I must admit I was nervous at first but once I got in the office, Dr. Turke and Christine made me feel at home. Dr. Turke also answered all of my questions and was very polite throughout the entire process. It’s always positive energy when I’m here.
