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. High-quality Dental Implants are typically unaffordable for many patients, especially those in the UK, Europe and the USA. Dental Centre Turkey offers patients an affordable Implant solution without compromising on the quality of materials. Patients who choose us for their Dental Implant procedure can rest assured that we only offer leading global Implant brands, all of which come with a lifetime guarantee.
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. Dental 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 following your arrival.
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 teeth 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 to Turkey. 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 Crown(s) 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 to Turkey 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/ euros or dollars. Dental Centre Turkey offers patients seeking Dental Implants an alternative solution. A solution which comes at a lower cost and does not compromise on the quality of materials used or expertise of our Dentists and Oral 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.
Dental Centre Turkey places Titanium Implants, manufactured from 100% grade 4 or grade 5 Titanium. Titanium is used for Dental Implants, as it is extremely durable, lightweight and very biocompatible, meaning it is not going to wear out and is highly unlikely to be rejected by your body. There are many different types of Titanium that are used for different purposes, building, medical supplies etc. Titanium Grade 4 or Grade 5 is used in the medical field and should be the only type of Titanium used for Dental Implants. Sometimes low cost Implants are not made from Grade 4 or 5 Titanium or they are only plated in Titanium. We give you a guarantee that we only work with premium Dental Implants that manufactured from 100% Titanium and come with a lifetime guarantee.
What if I need Bone Grafting or Sinus Lifting?
Once a natural tooth is extracted, the jawbone density will start to reduce after a period of time. In some cases, the reason for the loss of the tooth initially can be due to a reduction in bone density. In such cases, in order for an effective Implant placement Bone Grafting is required. Along the upper jaw the position of the sinus pockets is of vital importance to ensure a safe Implant placement. If there is insufficient room under the sinus pocket a Sinus Lifting procedure may be advised. In most cases, we carryout Bone Grafting and/or Sinus Lifting alongside the Implant placement.
Dental Centre Turkey Implant Brands:
Dental Centre Turkey ensures that patients have access to the best global Dental Implant Brands. The Brands we use are the same as what you will find in any reputable dental clinic in your home country. We have provided further details in relation to our Dental Implant Brands below.
Alpha-Bio is our chosen economic Dental Implant Brand. Although Alpha-Bio is our economic Implant it by no means falls short in its quality. Alpha-Bio have a large global distribution network both in Turkey and across the globe therefore in the event that you need to service your Implant later in life you can be sure to find an Oral Surgeon who works with the Alpha-Bio brand no matter where you live in the world.
The Alpha-Bio brand is now stronger than ever thanks to Nobel Biocare announcing the acquisition of Alpha-Bio in 2008 for $95 million dollars.

Straumann or Nobel Biocare:
If you are looking for a well-known, leading Dental Implant brand, you will not go wrong with choosing Straumann or Nobel Biocare. There are now thousands of Implant brands offering Implants of varying quality in different parts of the world. Dental Implants is a lifetime changing procedure that is also very long lasting. Let’s face it, you are not planning to invest in more Implants during your lifetime so they will need to be looked after for years to come. Nobel Biocare was the world’s first Implant brand in 1952 and Straumann followed soon after in 1957.
Both Implant brands are world players in the Implant market and such they are also the world’s largest global suppliers. There are many different advantages to choosing either brand and more details of each are provided below but the overall advantage of either brand is that they are recognised by every Oral Surgeon across the world and are considered to be the very best Implant brands available. Both Straumann and Nobel Biocare spend multi millions of pounds every year for research and development with both brands having a large business growth and subsequent profit margins.
Both Straumann and Nobel Biocare command high prices across the UK, Europe and the USA and are often seen as unaffordable. We have a number of dental clinics in Turkey and have been operating since 2005 therefore, we have a strong long-lasting relationship with our global Implant suppliers. We have a large demand from patients seeking Dental Implants compared to most smaller clinics in Turkey and subsequently we place a high number of Implants each month. Such supply and demand enables us to buy our Dental Implants in bulk and with this buying power comes savings, savings which are in turn passed onto our patients.
The running costs associated with owning a clinic in Turkey are significantly less than that of the running costs of a clinic in your home country, coupled with the buying power of a large group of clinics such as ours, we are able to offer high quality Dental Implant brands at highly competitive prices.

How many times do I need to visit Turkey for my Implant treatment?
In the case of Dental Implants two visits to Turkey are required to complete the treatment. This ensures that the Implants are strong in the jaw bone to support your new Crowns. The integration between the Implants and the jaw bone takes a period of 3 months. In the case that Bone Grafting and/ or Sinus Lifting is required the Oral Surgeon may advise a maximum healing period of 6 months to ensure your Dental Implants are strong in the jaw bone and are ready to support the Implant Crowns/ Implant Bridges ensuring the long term success of your Implant treatment. Many patients return after the recommended healing time according to their personal plans, some patients return the following year according to their holiday dates. This will not have a negative impact on your treatment, you can return later than the advised healing time just not before. During the healing period, there is usually the option of a temporary solution so you will not return home without the appearance of teeth.
Can I have a Dental Implant after a tooth extraction?
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.
What if I do not have enough bone?
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.

I have been told I need a Sinus Lift, how does that work?
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.

What about my Guarantee?
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.
Why should I have my Dental Implants in Turkey?
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.
What happens on my second visit?
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.
Will the procedure hurt?
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.
Can I have sedation or General Anesthesia during my Implant placement?
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.
Why should I choose Dental Centre Turkey for my Dental Implants?
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.
