All on 4 in Istanbul

The Ultimate Guide to All on 4 in Istanbul

Last fact-checked: 3 February 2021

If you’re looking for an affordable alternative to dentures, then the solution could be a dental tourism trip to Turkey for the All-on-4® treatment concept.

Provided by Nobel Biocare®, can replace all your teeth with this mouth restoration treatment in Istanbul for less than a third of the price you’d pay at home—saving you literally thousands.

If you’ve never been to Istanbul it’s an endlessly interesting city to explore. From a cultural perspective, you’ll see centuries of history woven into the fabric of its architecture, with astounding sites from empires past leaving their mark for all to see today. Istanbul’s location straddling Europe and Asia has been much coveted throughout history, and modern visitors still appreciate its unique position, as well as the beautiful vistas over the Bosphorus Straits and Sea of Marmara.

Either as a traditional tourist or dental tourist, Istanbul is a captivating experience.

What Is the All-on-4® Treatment Concept?

Pioneered by Dr. Paulo Malo from Lisbon, Portugal in the 1980s, the All-on-4® treatment concept is an innovative procedure for patients who have lost all (or most) of their teeth, or those with failing teeth.

If you struggle with dentures, or just prefer the idea of having permanent, secure teeth then the All-on-4® treatment concept is a dental implants procedure you may want to consider.

The procedure can be carried out in a day—which is why you may have seen it referred to as "same-day smile." It's less time-consuming than traditional implants, although the entire process does involve a six-month wait between implant placement and the attachment of the permanent fixed bridge. This is because the implants need to fuse with the jaw bone to provide a strong and secure base.

The reason the All-on-4® treatment concept can be carried out in a day is that the rear implants are longer than traditional implants, and they are inserted at a 45-degree angle, rather than the typical 90-degrees, which provides a bigger surface area for bone-to-implant ratio.

This also eliminates the need for bone graft surgery in patients who have suffered bone loss or deterioration. 

What Is the Cost of the All-on-4® Treatment Concept in Istanbul?

If you’ve already looked into the prices at home, you’ll be aware that this treatment is considerably expensive, which may well have put you off getting them until now. The All-on-4® treatment concept remains one of the most expensive dental procedures, so saving over £10,000 (€11,200; US $13,000; AUD $18,100) is no drop in the ocean and could well make your procedure affordable if you head to Istanbul for more reasonably priced care.

What Does the All-on-4® Treatment Concept Entail?

There are still several stages to the treatment, much of which will take place before your appointment. These involve:

1: Consultation & Assessment:

This procedure requires accurate planning and assessment. Thus, you will have a thorough examination and consultation with the dentist who will examine your mouth, as well as taking x-rays and/or scans to make an assessment on whether your jaw bone is viable to place the implants. Although the procedure is suitable for patients with some bone loss, you will still need a reasonable amount for the implant to seat well.

If the dentist confirms you are a suitable patient for the procedure, then impressions will first be made of your mouth and sent to the lab where your new arch of teeth will be manufactured and available to attach on the day of your procedure.

2: Treatment Day:

Treatment will be carried out under local anaesthetic, usually with conscious sedation, and typically requires two hours for each jaw. After any remaining teeth have been extracted, four implants will be placed in each jaw—two at the front at 90-degree angles, and two at the rear, at 45-degree angles.

Once the implants are in place, your new temporary arch of teeth is attached using specialized abutments and copings, thus completing the surgery. 

Note: After surgery, the implants will take around three to four months to fuse with the jawbone (osseointegration), while the gums and fixed prosthesis should also be protected. Thus, patients are advised to follow a diet of semi-solid/soft food during this time. 

3: Permanent Restoration:

You will return to the dentist after around six months (or you can leave it longer if you wish) to have your permanent fixed fitted. This will be based on new impressions of your mouth.

Why Should I Consider Treatment in Istanbul?

  • Quick Procedure with Minimal Downtime: The surgery is normally carried out in just one day. With minimal downtime (save for a little swelling and bruising), you can carry on with your holiday without too much interference, provided you take it easy per doctor's recommendations.
  • Save money: The cost of the All-on-4® treatment concept in Istanbul makes it a good-value procedure and much more within many people’s reach.

  • Modern Facilities: While Istanbul may be an ancient city, it is contemporary in other aspects. You can rely on modern clinics equipped with the latest technologies, such as CAD/CAM, 3D CT scanning and digital x-rays, providing both accurate diagnoses and predictable treatment outcomes.
  • Easily Accessible: Plenty of airlines fly into Istanbul from across the British Isles with return flights costing as little as £200.

DentGroup International has a sister office in London where you can have your consultation and assessment before you travel to Istanbul for your procedure.

Is this a Good Procedure to Have in Istanbul as a Dental Tourist?

Absolutely. For such a life-changing, major procedure, it’s surprising how quickly the treatment is carried out, and even more surprising to learn that patients seldom experience complications or associated after-effects of treatment.

It is worth remembering that the treatment is a surgical procedure, and you should take things easy after the procedure as your body will need time to heal itself and recover. However, the inner city is dense with sightseeing and activities; you should be able to find something that doesn’t wear you out too much.

Although Istanbul’s ‘Big Four’ tourist attractions (the Grand Bazaar, Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia) are all in the Sultanahmet District, you may only be up to taking in one or two if you’re out and about after surgery. Maybe a leisurely cruise down the Bosphorus would be a good first post-treatment trip?
