If you have a tooth that needs to be extracted and you plan to replace the missing tooth with a Dental Implant, we can extract your tooth and place the Implant as part of the same procedure. There is no need to have the tooth extracted before you visit us. If we extract a tooth in conjunction with an Implant placement we do not make any additional charges for the tooth extraction. Alternatively, if you have recently had your tooth extracted, you will need to wait 4-6 weeks before your Dental Implant is placed. Once your gum line is in a healing stage we cannot interrupt it to place the Dental Implant but we can complete both the extraction and the Implant placement at the same time.
In the case of Dental Implants your bone density and quality is a vital. Approximately 30% of our Implant patients do not have sufficient bone available for the placement of Dental Implants without the need for Bone Grafting. If you are unsure about your suitability for Dental Implants, please get in touch with us and we can assist you in arranging a Panoramic X-Ray in your home country before you travel. Alternatively, you can visit us in our clinic for a full consultation and Panoramic X-Ray, which is free of charge. We will assess a number of measurements to determine the best location and angle for the Implant placement. At Dental Centre Turkey, if you do need Bone Grafting, essentially the Implant procedure will be no different for you. The only difference is that the Implant procedure itself will take a little longer as the Oral Surgeon will apply Bone Grafting material in the appropriate areas alongside your Implant placement so if Bone Grafting is required you will still only need to make 2 visits to Turkey to complete your Implant treatment. The healing time advised by the Oral Surgeon maybe longer than 3 months however a temporary solution will be provided so you will not return home without the appearance of teeth and can continue daily life as normal until you return for your permanent Implant Crowns. Over time the Bone Grafting material will integrate with your own natural bone and your Dental Implants. On your new X-Ray or Tomography/ 3D MRI scan you will see the improved bone level compared to your previous scan. Our prices are set for Bone Grafting at a minimum and maximum price therefore, if you do not have a Panoramic X-Ray in advance of your visit we can inform you of any potential Bone Grafting costs before you travel so you know potentially how much your entire treatment will cost you before you travel to Turkey.

In the case of Dental Implants in your upper jaw the position of your sinus pockets is very important. If your Sinus Pockets (left, right or both sides) are too low, they will need to be lifted to make space available for your Implants to be placed safely. Approximately 25% of our Implant patients do not have sufficient space under their sinus pockets for the Implant placement to take place without the need for Sinus Lifting. If you are planning Implants for your upper jaw and you are unsure about your suitability for Dental Implants with or without the need for Sinus Lifting, please get in touch with us and we can assist you in arranging a Panoramic X-Ray in your home country before you travel. Alternatively, you can visit us in our clinic for a full consultation and Panoramic X-Ray, which is free of charge. We will assess a number of measurements to determine the best location and angle for the Implant placements and assess if Sinus Lifting is necessary. At Dental Centre Turkey, if you do need Sinus Lifting, essentially the Implant procedure will be no different for you. The only difference is that the procedure itself will take a little longer as the Oral Surgeon will lift your sinus pocket into the appropriate position alongside your Implant placement. The healing time advised by the Oral Surgeon maybe longer than 3 months however a temporary solution will be provided so you will not return home without the appearance of teeth and can continue daily life as normal until you return for your permanent Implant Crowns. Our prices are set for Sinus Lifting therefore, if you do not have a Panoramic X-Ray in advance of your visit we can inform you of any potential Sinus Lifting costs before you travel so you know potentially how much your entire treatment will cost you before you travel to Turkey. Many patients also report an increased sense of smell and can breathe easier which is a positive side effect to a Sinus Lifting procedure although essentially we carry out the procedure to ensure there is no risk to the sinus pocket or patient during the Implant placement.

Dental Centre Turkey prides itself on a transparent guarantee showing you all the terms and conditions, written in a language that is easy to understand (no mumbo jumbo included). Our extensive guarantee is one of the best you can find from a medical tourism provider and probably the best you will find from a Turkish dental clinic. Our team of Dentists, Surgeons and Technicians ensure that your treatment is carried out to the highest possible standard. Not only do we offer one of the longest guarantee periods, in the event of any issue Dental Centre Turkey are the only company who will offer to pay for your return flights up to the value of €150*. In case of a failure of the laboratory works our clinics will cover all necessary dental and laboratory costs to rectify the problem. The Implant screw itself is guaranteed against fracturing or breaking for a lifetime. If the Dental Implant fails we will replace it once free of charge. Please be aware that the number of patients needing to return for corrective treatment is so low as to be almost unheard of, that said, you can be sure that you are offered a legitimate guarantee by a company of longstanding operating since 2005 and not a cowboy company created last week.
Many Implant patients consider travelling abroad for their Dental Implants due to the cost savings but the skills and expertise should also not be ignored. All of our Dental Implants are placed by a fully qualified Oral Surgeon. In many UK and European dental clinics Implants are placed by a general dentist and not an Oral Surgeon. Your local Dentist may have experience of placing Dental Implants but in most cases this experience is limited and only a few Implants are placed each month. We have made a huge investment in the acquisition of specialised Implant technology to ensure accurate pre-planning of Implant placement, bone density measurements and lower invasive methods for Bone Grafting and Sinus Lifting procedures (if required). We place on average over 250 Implants every month with a 99.9% success rate since 2005. The global average success rate is 95% so we consider ourselves to be well above average giving our patients the confidence to choose us for their Implant treatment.
The process for the Implant placement and subsequent Crown is carried out as follows:
On the first visit the Implants will be placed and the gum will grow over the top of the Implant within in a short space of time (usually 5 – 14 days). When you return for the second visit the Oral Surgeon will gain access to the Implants by either opening the gum line surgically or with a laser, which option is most suitable will depend on the thickness of the gum. A healing cap will then be placed over the Implant so the gum line settles to the correct shape in preparation for the Implant Abutment and Crown which usually takes a few days. Once the new Crown is fabricated the healing cap is then removed, the Abutment is fitted to the Implant and subsequently the Crown is fitted to the Abutment.
In all cases, Implant treatment is effected with local anaesthetic, which numbs the area so that you will not feel the Implant placement. Following your Implant placement, we will provide a prescription for both antibiotics and pain killers. In terms of pain relief, most patients take pain relief medication for 24-48 hours following their procedure after which time they feel it is no longer required.
For our patients who have a fear of dentistry, we do offer treatment while sleeping (General Anesthesia) in our Antalya clinic only and at a cost of: £100 per hour, capped at a maximum cost of £400. We also provide the option of a sedative, for which there is no charge; you will be awake and remain calm throughout. Most patients prefer their treatment to be effected with just the Local Anesthetic, which numbs the area so that you will not feel anything at all. The combination of a sedative and Local Anesthetic will be extremely effective and with no extra cost. The choice is yours as to which option you prefer and both options can be discussed in the clinic itself with the dental team.
Dental Centre Turkey was established in 2005, that’s over 11 years of experience and 11 years of offering a legitimate guarantee. There are many cowboy clinics in the industry both at home and abroad that have been in business for 5 minutes and make huge claims which are nothing more than invented poppycock! We have over 150 real patient video testimonials as well as many written reviews on social media and hundreds of patient before and after examples. It takes time and effort to generate such statistics, for example: we only ask 2% of our patients for a video testimonial. We have done so to provide each potential patient with transparent information so you can make an informed decision about the right treatment provider. In recent years, we have been trusted to recreate the smiles of some well-known TV personalities which is a great addition to our expanding portfolio. Over 30% of the patients that visit us today are from a referral from a previous patient which is a statistic we are very proud of and strive to maintain.
