dental implant

Dental implants can be costly, making it challenging to afford this dental treatment without breaking the bank. It’s no wonder that many residents of the UK and other European countries are choosing Turkey for their dental treatments.

Turkey’s dentistry is, on average, affordable and high-quality, but there are many implant types, and dental clinics are not equal in quality.

What Is A Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a permanent prosthesis that completely replaces the tooth root. While each of the patient’s teeth has a separate root, dental implants can support both individual crowns, which replace the visible part of a single tooth, or dental bridges, which replace several adjacent teeth.

Dental implants are a perfect choice for many patients because they do not have any shortcomings of other teeth replacements. The implant requires no special care and does not move once installed. 

BEFORE & AFTER

Dental Implants in Turkey

The implant requires no special care and does not move once installed. Its ability of osseointegration (fusing with the jawbone) ensures that the patient can use their full bite force while eating. For comparison, the most popular dental implant alternative—dentures—reduces the patient’s bite force by five times, leaving them unable to eat hard foods.

Depending on what teeth they are replacing, implants can have different shapes, but most are screw-shaped. This shape allows the implant to attach to the surrounding jawbone more securely, which is why it is possible to replace all the teeth in a single jaw with a bridge supported by as few as four implants.

Unlike dentures and other teeth replacements, modern dental implants can last a lifetime without maintenance or refitting. Furthermore, implants are the only treatment for jawbone degradation that begins once a person loses some of their permanent teeth. As the jawbone stops receiving mechanical stimulation from the lost teeth’s roots, the osseous tissue starts to shrink. As the dental implant functions as an artificial root, the mechanical stimulation carried through it is enough to stop or even revert bone shrinking.

Who is eligible for Dental Implants?

Dental implants are not offered to patients younger than eighteen, as their bone development is incomplete. As their jawbones grow, any installed implants will get displaced, potentially damaging their natural teeth.

Dental implants are most suitable for older patients with missing teeth or whose teeth are very damaged. Several health conditions can make a person ineligible for dental implant installation. Among them are severe diabetes, haemophilia, cancer and immunodeficiency.

Some patients can be temporarily ineligible for implant installation because their jawbone density is not enough to support an implant. Such patients usually have bone grafting surgery that will increase their jawbone density.

What Types Of Dental Implants Can You Get in Turkey?

Clinics in Turkey offer every modern dental implant type. Implants can be made of several different materials and have different shapes. The most dental implant materials in modern dentistry are titanium and zirconia.

Titanium implants are the first implant type ever made, and they have continued improving since their introduction in the sixties. These grey metallic implants are very durable and versatile. Titanium is non-reactive, so an implant made of it does not alter the taste of food. Titanium implants are also the most versatile. They can be made in a single piece or use an abutment to install the implant at an angle to the visible part of the tooth prosthesis.

Only two categories of patients may benefit more from getting an implant made from other materials. Up to half a per cent of patients have titanium hypersensitivity, which manifests as allergy-like symptoms from contact with titanium-containing materials. The other reason to avoid titanium is if there is a risk of soft tissue recession. In such cases, the metallic implant can show through the gums, making them appear greyish and unhealthy.

Zirconia implants are made of white zirconium-based ceramic that is more aesthetic, as it does not look out of place in patients with gum recession. These implants are broadly comparable to titanium ones in material properties. Zirconia is more expensive to manufacture than titanium alloy. A zirconia implant must be made sufficiently large to prevent micro-fissures in the material, which makes it unsuitable for patients with thin jawbones. There are no known cases of ceramic hypersensitivity.

Dental implants can be classified by their shape. The most popular of these are All-on-X implant systems and zygomatic implants.

The All-on-4 and All-on-6 implant systems are full-arch fixed bridges supported by four or six implants. The full-arch bridge replaces all the teeth of a single jaw, and the reduced number of implants does not place the jaw under stress. It also allows you to save money.

Zygomatic implants replace all teeth of the upper jaw. This type of implant uses two very long screws inserted into the patient’s zygomatic arch, where the bone is much stronger. As a result, zygomatic implants can be installed even if the patient has low bone density without a bone graft.

Why Choose Turkey for Dental Implants?

The most popular reasons for choosing Turkey for dental implants are:

  • Turkish clinics are well known for their high quality. Turkish medical schools have rigorous requirements, making Turkish doctors very good at their job.
  • Turkish dental services are much cheaper than in the West.
  • Complementary services. When you get treatment in Turkey, you also receive accommodation at a premium hotel, in-country transportation and other additional services.
  • Holiday value. Dental treatment in Turkey is easily combined with a holiday. Turkey has many beautiful natural and architectural landmarks known worldwide.

Dental implants in Turkish clinics cost far less than in the UK. For example, at our clinic, you can get a dental implant for as low as £250.  Turkish dentistry is affordable because of the lower cost of living in the country and government aid, so clinics in Turkey can offer high-quality implants that don’t cost a fortune.

Turkey Dental Implants Price vs the UK

Depending on what type of implant you are getting, the price at a Turkish clinic can be as low as a quarter of the cost for the same treatment in the UK. As Turkish dentists use the same brands and materials for their dental implant treatments, you can be sure that the quality of treatment will be the same if all other criteria are equal.

How to select a dental implant clinic in Turkey?

When choosing a clinic in Turkey, pay attention to patients’ reviews. They can be found on the clinic’s site or specialised review platforms. Check the price range of the chosen clinic relative to others in the same area. It shouldn’t be suspiciously low. Ask the clinic if they have certificates of authenticity on their impleads. A quality clinic should have one and reply promptly.

Frequently Asked Question

Is Dental implant treatment painful?

Dental implants are installed under local anaesthesia, so the surgery is not painful. The patient can feel some aches after the anaesthesia loses its effect.

How long will I stay in Turkey for dental implants?

You’ll have to visit Turkey twice to complete your treatment. The first stay should be about five days long, and the second will take about ten days.

Can I trust a dental implant surgeon in Turkey?

Turkish dentists need to pass many tests to get their education, as well as have a practice at a dental clinic. Thus, even fresh graduates of Turkish dental schools are experts in their fields that can be relied upon.
