Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed into the jawbone to replace a single missing tooth, several missing teeth, or to support a full arch of replacement teeth.
Implants are usually made of titanium and are surgically implanted into the jawbone. The bone around the implant grows and fuses to the implant, creating a strong foundation for the replacement tooth.
You’re missing teeth and getting dental implants in Turkey might sound like a good idea. But hold on. Just because you’re missing teeth doesn’t mean you need implants.
Implants are a long-term solution for people who have missing teeth due to injury, periodontal disease or other reasons. But if you’re missing teeth in the back of your mouth, it’s probably not worth it.
If you lack teeth elsewhere, chances are implants will restore your ability to chew and speak, and improve your overall appearance.
Turkey received 150,000 dental tourists in 2019. This didn’t happen without a reason.

Full mouth dental implants in Turkey package deals are priced between €2500 to €8000. This is the average cost of all-on-6 implants on top and bottom of your mouth according to their type and material, including private transportation in Istanbul, hotel accommodation and all clinical expenses.
The same procedure costs anywhere between £12,000 to £25,000 in the UK. This does not even include the consultation, which is around £150, a service we give for free.
The cost of dental implants in Turkey has played a decisive role in the medical tourism boom that has attracted hundreds of thousands of patients to Istanbul every year since the early 2010s.
Care in Turkey operates with implants manufactured in Germany and the US, we don’t get any special offers compared to any other company in any other country.
The main reason behind the cost of dental implants in Turkey is currency exchange. The lower comparative value of the Turkish lira leads to reduced costs in staff, rent, bills, equipment and so forth.
Other factors leading to price differences include:
- Government subsidies to the medical sector
- Strong competition within the Turkish dental implants industry.
You shouldn’t travel abroad without a clear idea of how your medical tourism experience will look like.
Here is the ‘4 Ps’ process of dental implants in Turkey:
While at home, we review your x-ray images and medical history to confirm that you are suitable for the procedure. If your jaw bone and gum are suitable, we choose the treatment plan that best suits your needs.
We organize everything for you in Turkey, including accommodation and private transportation. Once in the clinic, a study of the topography of your mouth will take place, including 3D mapping. The complete treatment plan will be settled, and you will be ready for surgery.
While sedated, implants are drilled into your jawbone and grafts are placed to ensure maximum durability.
Proper aftercare can increase the lifespan of dental implants indefinitely. Here’s our 6 main recommendations:
1. Maintain good oral hygiene
2. Avoid tobacco use
3. Follow a healthy diet
4. Attend regular check-ups: Regular visits to your dentist are essential to ensure the implant is stable and healthy and to detect any issues early on.
5. Avoid excessive force or trauma: Avoid biting or chewing hard foods, and try to avoid any actions that could put excessive force on the implant.
6. Protect your implant from injury: If you play sports or engage in other activities that could result in trauma to the mouth, use a mouthguard to protect your implant.
Have you ever bought a piece of assembly furniture, skipped a step in the instructions, and later realized it was important? The same happens with teeth implants in Turkey.
There are 4 necessary phases to restoring teeth. Not 2 phases, not 3 phases, but 4 phases:
- Consultation: first, your dentist will determine if you are eligible for the procedure.
- First Surgery: next, an appointment will be set, and implants will be drilled into your jawbone.
- Healing: a period of 6 months will be required to ensure proper healing.
- Second Surgery: lastly, crowns will be placed to acquire a natural, functional denture.
This means: to get teeth implants in Turkey, you must visit Istanbul twice.
The cost of dental implants in Turkey remains 70% more affordable, but a double visit is not ideal if you don’t enjoy traveling.
To solve this inconvenience, some clinics have come up with a dangerous offer for overseas patients…
There is an almost 100% chance of complication if the procedure is performed in a single day. Mouth analysis isn’t accurate enough at a distance, without proper clinical examination. Furthermore, a single day procedure doesn’t allow sufficient healing time between stages 2 & 4 (see above).
We strongly warn patients against procedures of the like and the unethical use of marketing to promote dangerous operations.
Same day dental implants in Turkey can lead to very serious consequences, including:

The healing process after a dental implants in Turkey can vary depending on the individual, but it typically involves the following stages:
Immediate post-operative stage: This is the first stage of healing, beginning immediately after the procedure. The area around the implant may be swollen, bruised, and sore, and some bleeding may occur. It is important to follow the post-operative instructions provided by the dentist, taking prescribed medications, avoiding smoking and using ice packs to reduce swelling.
Osseointegration stage: This is the second stage of healing, it typically lasts for around 3-6 months. During this stage, the implant and the surrounding bone fuse together, a process known as osseointegration. This is an essential step in the healing process, as it allows the implant to become a stable foundation for the replacement tooth.
Abutment stage: This is the third stage of healing, which typically occurs after the osseointegration stage is complete. During this stage, the dentist will place an abutment, which is a small connector piece that attaches the implant to the replacement tooth. This step can be done in one visit or two depending on the type of implant and the dentist’s preference.
Prosthetic stage: This is the final stage of healing, it typically occurs after the abutment stage is complete.
Responsible dentists will refuse to treat you under certain circumstances. There are cases in which dental surgery is contraindicated.

There are several alternatives to dental implants, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. The best alternative for a particular patient will depend on their specific situation and needs. Some of the most common alternatives include:
Dentures are typically made of acrylic or a combination of acrylic and metal. They are a more affordable alternative to dental implants, but they may not be as stable or secure.
Bridges are fixed dental appliances that replace missing teeth by anchoring to the natural teeth on either side of the gap. They are typically made of porcelain or metal, but they can lead to damage to those teeth.
Dental crowns can fit over the remaining natural tooth structure, providing a support for a bridge or a stand-alone solution for a single missing tooth. However, they can also lead to damage to that tooth.
Resin-bonded bridges are a type of dental bridge that attaches to the back of the natural teeth on either side of the gap. They are typically made of porcelain or metal. However, they are not as durable as traditional bridges or implants.
Implant-supported dentures are a hybrid solution of dental implants. They are typically used for patients who have lost most of their teeth and are not suitable for dental implants
Delicious Mediterranean food, 3000 years of history, palaces, harems…
Dental implants in Turkey can change your life… or they can just change your mouth.
Discovering cities as rich in history as Istanbul might not be your cup of tea, and that’s perfectly fine.
But if it is, Turkey can offer you much more than just dentistry.
Like any other medical procedure, dental implants in Turkey have potential risks and benefits. It is important to consult a qualified, experienced specialist to make sure the procedure is suitable for you and to understand its risks and benefits.
Placing dental implants does not involve manipulating any organs, which means that risks are very limited. Yet it is important to consider all the dimensions of the treatment. We highly encourage you to do your own research before making a pondered decision.
It’s also essential to choose a reputable and certified clinic, ensuring a safe and successful procedure.
Typically, the whole implant procedure can be completed in 2 days. The problem is a 6-month period must span between those 2 days.
Unfortunately, this is the standard procedure all over the world: implants need to become strong and stable enough to support the replacement teeth, and that takes time.
You will have to travel to Istanbul twice if you want to get teeth implants in Turkey. Good news is you will save 4-digit figures despite the 4 plane tickets required.

Dental implant surgery takes please under local or general anaesthesia, depending on the number of implants and the conditions of the patient. The procedure is therefore absolutely painless.
Dairy products can cause inflammation and should be avoided until full cicatrisation has taken place. While dairy is not recommendable, other foods will help you, such as eggs & potatoes. Your surgeons will give you a full list of recommendations after surgery.
We understand “best” as a combination of price and quality. The “best” means the best possible treatment for the most affordable price. In that sense, Turkey is a good option. If you live in the UK or US, treatments are high quality, but their price is very high too due to living expenses.
Dental implants are designed to last for years. With proper care and maintenance, they can last for a lifetime.
The implant itself is made of biocompatible materials, such as titanium, which integrate with the jawbone and provide a strong foundation for the replacement teeth.
However, the lifespan of the implant is also dependent on the quality of the implant, the skill of the surgeon and the patient’s own oral hygiene and overall health.
We recommend having regular check-ups with your dentist to ensure the implant is stable and healthy, and to replace the abutment if necessary.
If you grind your teeth, we also strongly encourage you to wear a night guard.
The right answer depends on a series of factors. One of them could be your budget, another is the topography of your mouth.
- For a single missing tooth: only one implant and crown are needed.
- If multiple teeth are missing: multiple implants can be placed to support a bridge or a full arch of replacement teeth.
In the case of a full arch replacement, the number of teeth implants can range from 4 to 8, it may vary depending on the patient’s jawbone density, the type of implant chosen, and the overall treatment plan. You will have to consult a dental implant specialist to determine the best treatment plan for your specific case.
Dental implants are high-quality materials made of porcelain and titanium that come with great benefits:
- They remodel the natural shape of your face
- They protect and firmly hold substitute teeth
- They improve your capacity of chewing
- They improve your speech capacity
