Today, medical tourism in Turkey has received a new round of development. This was made possible thanks to the latest technology and equipment, along with skilled doctors in many fields of medicine, including dentistry. Dental clinics in Turkey annually receive hundreds of thousands of patients, including many foreigners. Patients choose Turkish dental clinics also because the price of dental services is much lower than for example in European clinics, and the quality of services and materials used is not inferior to anything.
Among the many types of dental care, Turkish clinics also carry out the application of dental implants. Today, implantation is the best method for restoring lost teeth. Only dental implants allow dentists to restore the functionality of the tooth completely, including the root, without deformation of adjacent teeth.
Feeling self-conscious about your missing teeth or wobbly dentures? You’re not alone. Millions of adults are missing at least one tooth. For those who cannot afford this treatment in their own country, we offer dental implants abroad in our first class clinics along the coast of Turkey. Dental implants are made of titanium today, which means they are biocompatible, totally harmless to the human organism. Thanks to its characteristics, titanium is an ideal material for making dental implants and it quickly establishes the requirements of osteointegration, the desired relationship between the dental implant and the bony tissue.
Dental Implant; A cylindrical and/or tapered post, usually made of titanium, that serves as a substitute for the tooth root
Abutment; A connector, placed on, or built into, the top of the dental implant, to connect the implant to the replacement tooth or teeth
Crown; A replacement tooth, custom made to match your natural teeth
Who can receive implant?
If there is sufficient bone to place the implant, anyone can receive this treatment. There is no upper age limit that might prevent application in patients with a good overall health condition. The only reservation might be for younger patients that haven’t completed their bone development yet.
What are the benefits of implant?
Implant is a very reliable, durable and comfortable application. Your healthy teeth will not be damaged next to the gap which is the case in bridge application. It is has a much longer life compared to alternatives. It also eliminates psychological disorders resulting from the lack of teeth thanks to the confidence it provides.
In which cases can implants be used?
If there is suitable and sufficient bone for implant, then implant can be applied under any circumstance.
Does implant cause pain during application?
You will not feel any pain thanks to the anesthetic substances and techniques of today. Either local or full anesthesia can be applied upon demand. There might be a slight pain after the operation that you can easily eliminated with simple painkillers. We would also encourage you to speak to our patients about how they felt after the implant.
Is an implant right for me?
A secure, long-term smile solution, implants are ideal for people of all ages who have lost teeth due to injury, periodontal disease or other causes. A Dental implant can even replace a full set of missing teeth, certain types of bridges, and removable partial dentures. The best implant candidates are those with healthy gums, good general oral health, a strong commitment to oral hygiene, and enough bone near the missing teeth for the implants to attach securely to the jaw. Even if you aren’t an ideal candidate, there are various procedures including bone grafting and sinus augmentation that can help prepare your mouth to accept implants.
