Why Is Turkey So Appealing for Dental Implants?

Turkey is a well-established destination for international patients seeking more affordable healthcare, with more than 40 Joint Commission International (JCI) accredited medical centers throughout the country. As a result, dental tourism is a growing trend in Turkey with more and more clinics now catering specifically (although not exclusively) to international patients.

Accessibility is especially easy for Brits or anyone in Europe seeking high-quality, inexpensive dental care, with many airlines flying direct to Istanbul, the capital of Ankara and the pretty coastal city of Izmir.

Welcoming more than 500,000 medical visitors every year, Turkey ranks in the top 10 medical and dental tourism destinations in the world. While not every facility here is going to be up to scratch, our background-checked clinics all feature up-to-date facilities, English-speaking staff and contemporary decor, ensuring a pleasurable and seamless experience while in Turkey.

Combining Dental Care with a Holiday in Turkey

Rich in history, culture and religion, with incredible cuisine, golden shorelines, mountain tops and ancient monuments, Turkey has become hugely popular with dental travellers.

From Ephesus and Istanbul to the dome of Aya Sofia, visitors can embark on an epic journey through this diverse country with its world-famous ruins—dating back to the Roman Empire. A previous stop along the infamous Silk Road, Turkey is brimming with glorious Mediterranean beaches, Aegean olive groves and Asian-influenced monuments.

Explore the Kaçkar Mountains, relax on the beaches at Patara and participate in the abundance of activities: diving, kayaking, windsurfing, rafting and canyoning. Take a gület cruise across the Mediterranean and Aegean or a hot-air balloon ride over Cappadocia. Experience a traditional hammam, take a walking tour or savour Turkey’s spectacular dishes ranging from spicy Anatolian kebabs to baklava.

Dental Implants—Explanation

Dental implant treatment involves small metal posts, usually composed of titanium, surgically inserted into the jawbone underneath the gum, acting as artificial roots. Each implant is then threaded, allowing an abutment to be screwed into place.

Once fused in position (after a number of months), your dentist will mount a false tooth (or teeth) securely onto the implants that match the rest of your teeth. Implants can be used to replace a single tooth (using a crown), hold a bridge of several teeth or as part of the more extensive All-on-4® treatment concept or All-on-6 treatment, whereby four or six implants hold an entire arch of replacement teeth
