Surgical Procedure Implantation Stage

Dental implantation treatment is probably the best way to replace missing or severely damaged teeth. But it is a very complex treatment, requiring a lot of experience and expertise from the dentist.

Dental implants are expensive and must be permanent, so getting the best quality ones is paramount. With simple care, correctly installed dental implants function just like natural teeth and will serve the patient for a lifetime.

Costs of Dental Implants in Turkey

Dental implants are one of the most expensive dental prosthetics, so getting a full dental implant treatment locally in the UK is prohibitive to most. The prices vary depending on materials and type, but even the cheapest ones are significantly more expensive than other dental treatments. The results, though, are often worth it. The dental implant is a perfect replacement for lost or damaged teeth – it’s durable, permanent and convenient. After getting an implant, the patient may just as well forget that they have a prosthetic and treat it as a natural tooth, for dental implants do not need any extra care and don’t slip out or interfere with speaking or eating.

In these cases, the best way to save money on dental procedures is to travel to a country with cheaper healthcare, and there is no better country than Turkey for affordable, high-quality dentistry. In Turkey, the price of a dental procedure can be several times less than in the UK for a procedure of the same quality. The price difference is dramatic due to Turkey’s lower living cost and Turkish governmental aid.

In Turkey, the price for most things is lower than in the UK, as the labour cost is lower too. Thus, goods produced in Turkey and services offered there are cheaper for the residents of the UK, whose income reflects greater labour costs in the UK. The government of Turkey also recognises that affordable healthcare attracts tourists, so it offers its clinics subsidies.

Stages of Dental Implants in Turkey

dental implants cost
  • Dental implants are artificial tooth roots to which the dentist can attach dental crowns, full-arch bridges or other teeth replacements. The implant is a metallic or ceramic screw inserted into the jawbone, where it fuses with the bone tissue to form a strong bond. As a result, the implants are attached as securely as natural teeth.
  • Before the actual surgery begins, the patient will pass the consultation. The doctors will do X-Ray scans of the patient’s jawbone to evaluate the bone condition and structure and determine the best implant type.
  • The type of implant selected for the surgery depends on several factors.
  • The most common dental implant type is made of titanium. It is suitable for most patients and is cheaper than other types. Titanium is a non-reactive metal, so the implant is durable and safe. The only reasons a titanium implant may be unsuitable for a patient are if the patient’s gums are prone to receding, which can make the dark metal show through under the crown, or if the patient has a titanium allergy.
  • In these cases, the dentists may recommend the patient get a ceramic implant. Typically made of zirconia, ceramic implants are white, so they do not show through receded gums, and there are no known cases of a patient getting an allergic reaction to them.
  • The other factor that determines the type of implants used is what teeth they are replacing. If the implants are meant to replace molar teeth, the dentists will use implants with an abutment. An abutment is a connector that allows placing a crown at an angle to the implant. Without it, the crown can be attached only parallel to the screw, which is not the best way to replace a molar root.
  • After establishing all the details of the future treatment, the dentist can proceed with the surgery. But as the consultation and examination take a lot of time, the surgery is usually performed at the next appointment.
  • At the beginning of the first stage of surgery, the dentist will apply anaesthesia to numb the patient’s mouth. Then, the surgeon will make incisions in the gums to reach the jawbone, drill the screws into it and stitch the patient’s gums back together with dissolvable stitches. The dentist can’t place permanent teeth prostheses right after this stage, as the implants are not yet fused with the bone. The fusing, also called osseointegration, will take at least several months, during which the implants will be covered with temporary crowns.
  • After the implants fuse with the jawbone, the patient must return to the clinic to receive the permanent prostheses. The doctors will install them and adjust their placement so they fit perfectly. After this stage, the treatment is complete, and there is no recovery period, as this stage contains no surgical procedures.
  • Some patients may require appointments for additional procedures so the dentists can guarantee the safety of their smile makeover.
  • The most common procedures that may be performed before implantation are sinus lift and bone grafting. A sinus lift is performed to raise the patient’s sinuses if there is a risk of an implant reaching into the sinus cavity. Bone grafting is performed when the patient’s bone density is not enough to support an implant.

Advantages of Dental Implants in Turkey

There are many advantages of Turkish dental implants, such as:

  • Dental procedures in Turkey are offered as a package deal that includes surgery, accommodation, in-country transportation, consultation, examination and other related services.
  • Turkish clinics can install every type of modern dental implant, including zygomatic implants, all-on-4 implants and others.
  • The dental procedure in Turkey can be combined with a holiday, as Turkey is a popular tourist destination with rich history and varied natural and architectural landmarks.

Types Of Dental Treatments That We Offer

Why Dental Implantation is Cheaper in Turkey

While the lower living costs and governmental aid are the primary reasons for the affordability of healthcare in Turkey for medical tourists, the price gets lower due to additional factors.

As travelling to another country for teeth replacement is usually stressful, clinics in Turkey provide their procedures as package deals that include all the services related to the procedure, such as anaesthesia, but also additional nonmedical services to ease the patient’s stay in the country. The patients can expect to get a stay in a hotel and in-country transportation arranged for them. As the patient is purchasing services “in bulk”, the price of each provided service is slightly lower than if they were purchased separately.

It is also much cheaper for a clinic to operate in Turkey than in the UK for various reasons. The rental fees in Turkey are lower, for example, and so are the costs of other services required for a functioning business. By saving on operating costs the clinics do not need to charge their patients as much for their surgeries.

How to Choose a Dentist for Dental Implantation in Turkey?

Before getting such extensive permanent treatment as a dental implant, the patients need to make sure they choose the best treatment possible.

The first step is to check the clinic’s online reviews. Often, one can find patients’ reviews on the clinic’s site, but there are other sites where patients can find authentic reviews. Nevertheless, it’s rarely needed to do so, as most clinics use special tools to pull reviews from all over the net, such as from Facebook and Trustpilot, to their page.

The next step is to check the clinic’s Global Clinic Rating, or GCR. It will show the success metrics of a clinic on a score from 1 to 5, as determined by taking into account over twenty-five factors.

The patients should also consider the cost of treatment and what services are included in the dental implant package deal, but these should not be the main reasons for choosing one clinic over the other.
