Having dental implants in Istanbul is affordable, safe and convenient when using Dental Departures to book at one of the city's top private clinics.

Here are a few pointers that will help you make the most of your dental vacation in Turkey's most-visited city.

Find the Best Prices for Dental Implants

The local currency is the Turkish Lira, though you can pay in Euros in most places.

A standard titanium implant costs around €850, whereas a standard implant crown with abutment costs around just €100. By getting quotes from various clinics, you can potentially find even lower prices for essentially the same (if not better) quality of dental work that you find in your country. This is the primary reason for the growth of dental tourism in Turkey.

Please note that these are estimates at the time of writing. Check our clinic listings for up-to-date prices for implants in Istanbul.

Finding a Clinic

There are many excellent clinics in Istanbul for dental implants, and we have partnered with some of the very best. For some recommendations, here are some of the most reputed clinics in the city:


Getting Around Turkey

Travelling around Istanbul is a breeze thanks to its amazing public transport system, with bus being the most affordable option available. You can pay for all transportation using a topped-up ‘Istanbulkart’ available at the airport, which saves you the hassle of carrying loose change.

Can I Claim My Dental Insurance in Turkey?

The answer depends on where you are flying in from and also your insurer. The fact of the matter is that most dental insurance companies around the world still don’t provide coverage for implants, considering this procedure as cosmetic dentistry. That is why many are flying to Turkey to get implants at the top prices.

Implants in Istanbul are of a high quality and yet cost lower than countries like the UK, France and Germany.
