What is a dental implant procedure in Turkey?
Most people lose at least one tooth during their lives. Losing even a single tooth without replacing it can lead to severe dental issues. The portion of the jawbone beneath the lost teeth begins to shrink as it stops receiving mechanical stimulation from the teeth roots. Eventually, this causes the jaw to shrink, a little at first, but possibly enough to displace the surrounding teeth and begin a vicious circle of dental issues.
This is why dental implants, essentially artificial teeth roots, are an effective solution to adentia, or tooth loss.
BEFORE & AFTER
Turkish dental implants, in particular, are popular because of their high quality and low prices. But a dental implant procedure has more than just installing dental implants.
A dental implant serves as a new root of the tooth, but by itself, it is an incomplete restoration. To fully restore a tooth, a patient will need a separate prosthesis to replace the tooth’s visible part. This prosthesis will be attached to an implant directly or via an abutment. Dental crowns and fixed bridges are the most popular among these, but there are many others. As such, a dental implant procedure is a process of installing an implant and a supporting prosthesis.
What is the cost of dental implant treatment in Turkey?
The cost of every dental treatment depends on several criteria. In the case of dental treatments, the cost depends on their quantity and material, as well as the type of supporting dental prosthesis used to complete the restoration. For example, at Dentatur, the average full mouth dental implants Turkey price is £4,400.
A full-mouth dental implant procedure is a type of implant surgery that aims to restore or replace all the patient’s teeth, usually used in patients with near-total or total adentia.
Teeth replacement Turkey is, on average, less expensive than in the UK and other Western countries. While healthcare prices in Turkey are lower, it does not negatively influence the quality for reasons that will be elaborated further.
The price of dental implants at our clinic includes additional services that will make it easier for you to travel to our clinic. When a patient purchases a treatment at our clinic, they get accommodation and in-country transfers. Furthermore, the price includes all the medication and supplies required for surgery. Some patients may need additional treatments before installing implants, such as bone grafting. These surgeries are considered separate treatments and are not included in the cost.
Why do dental implant treatments cost less in Turkey?
When comparing prices for dental implants between countries, it is immediately noticeable that the best dental implants in Turkey cost much less than in most other countries. While our prices are lower, Dentatur uses the same brands of dental implants as clinics in Western European countries and employs experienced dentists. Due to this, the quality of dental implant installation at Dentatur is on par with the best clinics in those countries.
Our prices are lower primarily because living costs in Turkey are not as high as in the UK. Lower living costs mean lower rent costs for businesses and affordable locally-made medical supplies. The high cost of imported medical supplies is covered by government aid, so the clinic does not need to raise prices. Furthermore, Turkey is very popular among medical tourists, so there is high competition among clinics, which makes teeth implants Turkey price even more affordable.

How is the implant installation procedure performed?
Dental implant installation is a lengthy procedure which takes about half a year. The patient will need to visit Turkey twice during this period.
The First Stage – Preparation and Temporary Prostheses Installation
During the first visit, the patient will need to stay for about a week. The dentist will first make scans of the patient’s teeth and jaws. The scans will help to determine jawbone density and will help during dental implant installation. Patients with insufficient bone density will need to have bone grafting surgery. If the patient is ready for the dental implant installation, it may begin immediately.
First, the dentist will apply anaesthesia to numb any pain or feeling of discomfort. The dentist will cut the gums, making a separate incision for each dental implant. This exposes the jawbone, where the dental implants are then inserted. After installing the dental implants, the dentist will place temporary crowns or a bridge on them. The patient can then return home for osseointegration.
The Second Stage – Osseointegration and Permanent Implant Installation
Osseointegration is the fusing of bone and dental implant. The process is crucial for forming a strong connection between the dental implant and natural bone, which is why the patient gets a temporary low-pressure crown or bridge after the first visit. If the patient follows the dentist’s instructions properly, osseointegration takes about half a year, after which the patient will need to return to Turkey for permanent crowns or bridges.
Upon returning, the dentist will examine the patient’s dental implants and then install the prostheses. After this, the treatment is complete, and the patient can return home.
What dental implant types are used in Turkey?
There are two main categories of tooth implant Turkey, titanium and zirconia. Titanium dental implants are more established and cheaper, while zirconia ones cost more but can offer more aesthetic value.
Titanium dental implants
Titanium dental implants are made of non-toxic titanium alloys. They are strong and osseointegrate readily. As the first type to enter the market, there is a wide variety of shapes and configurations of titanium dental implants. They are made in single-piece and abutment-using versions, allowing more flexibility in placing dental implants.
While titanium is not toxic, some people can exhibit allergy-like symptoms from prolonged contact with it. Such patients can benefit from installing zirconia implants. Titanium dental implants are also not recommended for patients with gums prone to receding. These patients’ gums can recede far enough to reveal a part of the implant under the crown or bridge. Because titanium is grey, this creates a visible grey strip under the teeth where the gums have receded.
Zirconia dental implants
Zirconia dental implants are a newer material. These dental implants consist primarily of zirconium dioxide porcelain. They are white, non-toxic and non-allergenic. They also tend to be more expensive. As a newer material, zirconia implants are not yet made in all shapes and configurations offered by titanium.
Unfortunately, there is also a limited selection of two-part zirconia implants.
This prevents the usage of abutments for most zirconia implant designs, which can make placing implants more difficult. Nevertheless, zirconia is quite popular for its hypoallergenic properties and natural-looking colour that does not look out of place, even if a patient’s gums have receded.
Who is eligible for dental implant installation?
The dental implant procedure is suitable for people who meet the following criteria:
The patient is also recommended to abstain from alcohol and smoking, as they can interfere with the process of osseointegration.
