Dental Implants in Turkey

Despite all the developments in oral and dental health, many people suffer from tooth loss, mostly due to tooth decay, periodontal disease or injury. For many years, the only treatment options available for people with missing teeth were bridges and dentures. However, today there is a brand new, more reliable, more aesthetic and more permanent method.

Implants are screw in teeth made of titanium that are used in the treatment of missing teeth and are placed inside the jawbone. A dental prosthesis is placed on these screws. The advantage of teeth implantation over other treatments is that neighbouring teeth are not damaged, which means that neighbouring teeth do not need to be cut. The implant tooth acts as a root and you can eat, talk and laugh just like a natural tooth.

Tooth implant procedure also involves a surgical process that replaces tooth roots with metal, screw-like posts and replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that closely resemble and function like real teeth. Dental implants are biologically compatible with the body thanks to their titanium composition.

Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable artificial teeth made to fit your natural teeth. In other words, a dental implant is an artificial tooth "root" artificially placed in your mouth to support dental prosthetics, such as dentures or bridges. They are screws made of tissue-friendly Titanium and placed in the jawbone, which acts as a root for the missing tooth. With dental implants, a longer-lasting and healthier result and a more natural appearance are achieved compared to traditional bridges and total dentures.

There are so many advantages of them, whether you get a single implant or a full set of dental implants, some of which are: 

  1. Perfect Appearance
    Dental implants look like your own teeth and give you the feeling of them. Moreover, they are permanent because they are designed to fuse with the bone.
  2. Speaking Fluently
    With ill-fitting dentures, teeth may slip in the mouth and cause mispronunciation. Dental implants allow you to speak without worrying about teeth shifting.
  3. Perfect Tooth Root
    The roots of your teeth are attached to your jaw like the roots of a tree. When you lose a tooth, there is a gap left where the root is located, and these roots are reconstructed with teeth implantation.
  4. Ease of Eating
    Traditional dentures often slip, making it difficult for you to enjoy chewing. Dental implants function like your natural teeth, allowing you to enjoy eating your favourite foods without any extra effort or pain. It allows for better bite force than a person with traditional dentures.
  5. Confidence
    Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
  6. Oral Health    
    Thanks to dental implants, it is not necessary to reduce/change the forms of adjacent teeth as is the case with bridges. Since neighbouring teeth are not changed to support the implant, your own teeth remain healthy in your mouth for a long time. Implants allow you to have new teeth without damaging the adjacent tooth, with the abutment/support placed on them, which acts as a natural dental skeleton.
  7. Durability
    Single or full dental implants can be used for a long time, even for a lifetime, if oral hygiene rules are followed.
  8. Suitability
    Dental implants prevent the discomfort encountered in removing dentures.
  9. Success
    The long-term success rate of teeth implant process is 97%.



In Which Situations Is a Dental Implant Performed?

  • Single tooth missing: 

If the bone in the area where the implant will be placed is sufficient, the implant can be used to replace the missing tooth by making a dental crown on the implant.

  • Complete or partial toothlessness: 

If more than one tooth is missing, fixed or removable dentures can be made using implants. Fixed dentures are fixed to implants by screwing them and are more comfortable and useful than removable dentures.

  • Jaw and facial defects: 

In the treatment of defects in the jaw and facial area, an aesthetic appearance can be achieved by using implants.

  • Melted jaw bone problem: 

Missing teeth can cause melting of the jaw bone over time. If the jaw bone has melted, bone grafting may be required before implant treatment.

  • Patients who do not prefer removable prosthesis: 

Implant is an ideal option for patients who do not prefer removable prosthesis. It is more comfortable and useful than removable dentures.

It is necessary to have sufficient bones and healthy gums. Patients must commit to paying attention to post-implant oral hygiene and visiting their dentist regularly. Diabetes or heart diseases, radiation treatments to the head/neck area should be evaluated individually on a patient basis for a tooth implant procedure. You should definitely consult your dentist to find out whether a dental implant is suitable for you.

Another topic that many patients are curious about is “How long does a dental implant procedure take?”.  The duration of implant treatment depends on the patient's jawbone and the number of implants to be applied. The procedure time for a single implant is approximately 15-20 minutes. Applying a large number of implants and performing advanced surgical procedures may cause in prolonging the duration.

Who Can't Get Dental Implants?

  1. Patients and pregnant women who have not completed their growth and development,
  2. Patients who are undergoing chemotherapy or radiotherapy to their jaw bones,
  3. Implants cannot be applied to the jaw bones of patients using immunosuppressives.
  4. In case of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, liver and kidney failure, clotting problems and immune system disorders,

How Is a Dental Implant Applied?

If you wonder “how tooth implant is done?” or “how long does it take for dental implants to settle?” here are the main stages of a teeth implant process:

  •  Examination

This stage consists of the patient's general health and dental examinations. If the patient's general health condition is suitable for implant placement, the dentist decides the type and length of the implant to be used, based on a special x-ray and the condition of the teeth in the mouth. At this stage, it is very important that the dentist who will decide on the implant and the prosthesis to be placed is experienced.

  • Operation

The placement of the implant is done with local anaesthesia. The procedure may take between 30-90 minutes, depending on the number of implants to be placed.

  • Recovery

After the implant is placed, a certain time must pass for it to integrate with the bone. This period is between 3-6 months. During the recovery phase, if necessary, a temporary prosthesis is made for the patient. Patients continue their normal diet without putting too much stress on the implants applied. During the recovery period, the dentist may call the patient for check-ups at regular intervals and may request another x-ray if necessary.

  • Placement of the Implant Superstructure

Implants generally consist of two parts. The first one is a cylindrical piece placed on the jawbone. For prosthesis construction, there is a second piece called an abutment, which is compatible with the first piece in the bone. After the healing period is completed and the first piece is completely surrounded by healthy bone, the superstructure is placed.

  • Making the Prosthesis

The measurement of the superstructure is taken. The prosthesis is finished using known methods.

Turkey has become the teeth implantation centre of the world due to its affordability and technical development. But there are some other reasons why so many people prefer getting their teeth done in Turkey more than in other countries. Due to Turkey's geographical location, many patients from European countries, Gulf countries and North Africa come to visit our country for the cheapest teeth implants. But Turkey's geographical location is not the only reason for this interest. Patients who come to Turkey every year for a tooth implant procedure leave our country satisfied and happy.

When patients are asked about the services they have taken, dental surgery in Turkey is top on the list, thanks to its correct use of developing technology, effective selection of techniques suitable for each patient and affordable price policy. The fact that tooth implant in Turkey is affordable and that the healthcare sector has technical equipment at international standards makes Turkey a preferred choice for foreign patients. So, you may ask “How much is a tooth implant?” Comparing tooth implant cost in other countries to the tooth implant cost in Turkey, the huge gap can be clearly seen. Moreover, in countries like the UK or the USA, you have to wait an average of 2-3 months for an appointment to have a teeth implantation. In Turkey, however, you can make an appointment for a teeth implantation in a very short time.

Dental Implant Recovery and Results

After the teeth implant process, it is very important to pay attention to oral hygiene. In addition to routine tooth brushing, the implanted area should be cleaned by using special interdental brushes recommended by the dentist. Another important point is to have regular check-ups. The recommended control process is to check every 6 months for the first two years, and then annually. Your dentist will give the most accurate guidance.

Immediately after teeth implant process:

  • Do not eat or drink anything for two hours and do not consume hot or cold foods on the first day.
  • The tampon placed to stop bleeding is removed after half an hour. Bleeding in the form of leakage may occur on the first day. Care should be taken not to rinse or spit in order not to increase bleeding.
  • On the first day, cold is applied to the implanted area at five-minute intervals to prevent too much swelling.
  • Prescriptions given by the dentist are used regularly and in appropriate doses.
  • You should not forget the importance of oral hygiene during the healing process and after the prosthesis is placed.

After implant operations, some swelling, pain and discomfort may be felt in the area where the implant is placed. These symptoms may vary depending on the number of implants made, the location of the implant, whether further surgeries are required or not, individual healing differences and the pain thresholds of the patients. The pain is expected to decrease by the second or third day after the operation. Depending on the patient's age, bone quality and systemic condition, a bone healing period ranges from 1 to 6 months.
