Why Get Dental Implants in Turkey?
The main reason to travel for dental treatment in Istanbul is the price. Patients can save 50-70% on dental prices comparing to their home country. Of course, the more extensive and costly the treatment, the more you stand to save – and that’s why Turkey teeth implants and veneers are particularly popular.
Also, patients can save money by visiting a dental clinic in Istanbul for other cosmetic treatments like teeth whitening, and even crowns, bridges and dentures. Simply put, if your teeth are in a bad state and the work you need seems unaffordable in your country, a dental holiday in Turkey could be a solution.
Turkey is convenient to reach for dental patients from all over Europe with less than four flying hours.
Turkey has a lot to offer in terms of history, culture, shopping and beaches, so many dental patients choose to extend their trip into a dental holiday and make the most of their time in the country. Many of the best dental clinics in Turkey are located in Istanbul, which is a popular tourist destination in its own right.
You’ll also find that waiting times are next to none. You should be able to schedule an appointment very quickly with your dentist – helpful if you need urgent dental care.
Popular Dental Treatments in Turkey
Dental implants in Turkey cost as much as 70% less than the price you might have been quoted at home, which is why they are such a popular treatment. Depending on the type of implants you’re getting and any preparatory treatments you need (such as extractions, a bone graft or a sinus lift), you’ll need to make two or three visits for your implants. Each of these will probably require a stay of several days or a week. Your dentist will explain more about your treatment plan according to your individual needs.
You might be able to save a lot by getting dental implants abroad in Turkey, especially if you need a full mouth of new teeth. However, don’t forget to factor in the cost of your flights, food and accommodation for each trip when working out whether your dental holiday is really worth it.
For slightly quicker treatment you might opt for All-on-4 full mouth implants. These require fewer implant rods in the jaw than traditional types, which makes them a cheaper option. They’re not right for everyone though, so research this treatment carefully before going ahead with All-on-4 dental implants in Turkey.
If you don’t need implants but do want a straighter or whiter smile, veneer prices in Turkey make them much more affordable. Getting veneers in Turkey usually only requires one visit, but if your veneers are being made in a laboratory (as is the case with porcelain veneers) you’ll need to wait while this is done. This can take anything from a couple of days to a week or more depending on where they are made. A longer stay will add to your costs so it’s important to ask before how long you’ll have to wait between visits.
The cost of teeth whitening in Turkey means you could save a lot on professional in-clinic treatment. However, the savings probably aren’t big enough to justify a trip for teeth whitening alone.
Although there is a big market for cosmetic dentistry in Turkey, people also come for less glamorous treatments including:
Root canals treat diseases or abscesses teeth. Once a tooth is injured, cracked or decayed, it is necessary to open the tooth and clean out the infected tissue in the center. This space is then filled and the opening sealed.
Crowns and Caps
Crowns are dental restorations that protect damaged, cracked or broken teeth. Dental crowns, often referred to as caps, sit over the entire part of the tooth that lies above the gum line.
Dentures are prosthetic devices replacing lost teeth. There are two types of dentures – partial and full. Full dentures are often referred to as “false teeth”.
Bridges and Implants
Bridges and implants are two ways to replace a missing tooth or teeth. They are false teeth anchored in place by neighboring teeth. The bridge consists of two crowns on the anchoring teeth along with the false tooth in the center. Dental implants are artificial roots used to support replacement teeth.
A severely damaged tooth may need to be extracted. Permanent teeth may also need to be removed for orthodontic treatment.
Fillings and Repairs
Dental fillings and repairs use restorative materials used to repair teeth which have been compromised due to cavities or trauma.
A dental brace is a device used to correct the alignment of teeth and bite-related problems (including underbite, overbite, etc.). Braces straighten teeth by exerting steady pressure on the teeth.
Periodontal or gum disease is an infection that affects the gums and jaw bone, which can lead to a loss of gum and teeth. There are two major stages — gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is the milder and reversible form; periodontal disease is often more severe. In some cases, gum surgery will be required to reverse the effect of the disease.
Applying composite tooth bonding is a restorative procedure that uses tooth enamel-colored composite resin (plastic) to repair teeth that are decayed, chipped, fractured or discolored. Tooth gaps can also be closed. Unlike veneers, which require laboratory work, bonding is done in the dental office. Prices are cheaper than private care in the UK for pretty much every treatment so it’s worth getting all the work you need while you have the chance.

Standards, Qualifications and Regulation
The growth of dental tourism in Turkey is not just down to price; the industry also relies on its dentists maintaining high standards to ensure a good reputation. Over half a million tourists visit the country each year for medical treatment including dental work and cosmetic surgery.
Dentists in Turkey must train for five years at one of the country’s 15 schools of dentistry. After obtaining their DDS degree they may specialize with a further five years’ education in the fields of orthodontics or prosthodontics.
Dental education and legislation are regulated by the Ministry of Health, and dentists practicing in Turkey must have a qualification recognized by this body. They must also register with the Turkish Dental Association, an organization which monitors dental practices and helps develop the profession through continuing education. Currently over 26,000 dentists in Turkey hold this membership.
Dentists performing any kind of cosmetic dentistry may also become members of the Turkish Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry (EDAD). This is optional, but it shows a dentist is committed to staying up-to-date with advancements and changes in the field through continued education. If you want to get veneers in Turkey, you may prefer to use an EDAD member dentist.
