Are you struggling to cope with your existing dentures, facing the prospect of removable dentures or don’t like your gap? If the answer is yes the most natural solution is Dental Implant.
A Dental Implant is a small titanium screw that is placed within the jawbone to replace teeth that are already missing or are in need of replacement. Implants are made of titanium as titanium is known to integrate with your natural bone. It is the same material used in knee and hip replacements. Consequently the Implant forms an artificial tooth root that anchors in place a new dental crown. In the case of multiple teeth missing along the same row (three or more teeth) we can attach an Implant Bridge to the Implants. Since the Implant fuses to the jawbone, the end look and feel is completely natural.
The word 'Implant' refers directly to the titanium screw, which is implanted into the jawbone; in addition to this there is the Implant Abutment (the small attachment that connects the Implant to the Crown) and then of course the Porcelain Crown itself to complete the treatment. Dental Centre Turkey will always provide you a quote that is all inclusive of all costs related to your treatment, our Implant price includes the cost of the Abutment, ensuring there are no hidden costs.
How Many Dental Implants do I need?
Depending on how many teeth you have missing will depend on the number of Implants you will need. Dental Implants can be used to replace any amount of teeth - from a single missing tooth to full mouth restoration. Our expert dental team will tailor a treatment plan to suit your personal requirements.
Generally we do not replace every missing tooth with a Dental Implant. If you have NO teeth on your upper and lower jaws we will usually place 6 Implants along the upper jaw and 6 Implants along the lower jaw, 12 in total. These Implants will support a full set of 28 teeth (14 along each jaw).
If you have a gap where 3 or 4 teeth are missing along the same row, we will place 2 Dental Implants (one at each end of the gap. These Implants will support a 3 or 4 Tooth Dental Implant Bridge. Alternatively if you only have one tooth missing, we place will place 1 single Dental Implant and Implant Crown.
Your treatment can be completed in two short visits. The first visit is for the placing of your Dental Implants. Following your Implant placement you must wait a minimum of 3 months before your permanent Implant Crowns can be fitted. This is very important for all patients to ensure your Implants have time to settle and are strong in the jawbone before any weight or force is applied. This will ensure the long-term success of your treatment. During visit one a temporary solution can be applied so you will not return home without the appearance and function of teeth. On your return visit we will fit the Implant Crowns or Dental Implant Bridges to the Implants and your treatment will be completed.
Dental Implants and the cost of their placement can command eye-watering prices, often running into the thousands of pounds. We offer an alternative at a lower cost that does not compromise on the quality of materials used or expertise of our Dentists and Surgeons. Much of this can be attributed to the running costs associated with owning a clinic in Turkey, which is significantly less than that of the running costs of a clinic in your home country. Couple that with the buying power of a group of clinics such as ours, that places an increasingly high number of Implants per month, then the costs are brought down even further. This cost saving is passed on directly to you.

Do you offer payment plans?
We are unable to offer finance plans for our patients where monthly payments are available, however an alternative option is for you to take a small personal loan from your bank to finance your dental treatment. The bank % APR is usually quite low, in fact, much lower than it would be through a dental provider so this is often a more smarter option to pay for your treatment.
Do I need to make two visits?
It is entirely your choice as to how many visits you would like to make to Turkey, however it will be more economical for you to make one visit for your consultation and subsequently your treatment, should you wish to proceed.
The timeframe needed for each of our treatments is shown on each treatment page. If you are planning multiple treatments or you would like to double check you can get in touch with us and we will advise accordingly and answer any other questions you may have. The timescale advised allows for both your consultation and the completion of your treatment. The usual process involves your first visit to include your consultation and the start of your treatment should you wish to proceed, which will allow plenty of time to complete your treatment before you return home.
There is no charge for any aspect of the consultation to include Panoramic X-Rays and no pressure to proceed with treatment. If you would not like to proceed with treatment following your consultation, no charges will be made and we will return you to your hotel/ accommodation if this service is provided by the clinic.
