Why do patients go to Turkey for dental treatments?
Turkey is popular with medical tourists because it offers modern, high-quality services for affordable prices performed by expert dentists. Clinics in Turkey can use advanced techniques to perform treatments, increasing their success rates and eliminating many side effects common in clinics that use older dental techniques. Since the cost of living in Turkey is low, the prices for dental procedures are very affordable.
The low prices do not negatively influence the quality of procedures because they are caused by the clinics not having to spend a lot of money to cover their operating costs. Many clinics in Turkey employ dentists with different specialisations. It allows them to perform any type of treatment on-site, combining them for a more comprehensive approach to dentistry.

What cosmetic dental treatments are offered in Turkey?
Turkey’s clinics can perform any modern dental treatment. Most medical tourists come to Turkey for cosmetic procedures, as they are often much cheaper here, but many also want to have functional teeth restorations, such as the best dental implants in Turkey.
Types of Dental Treatments
Dental veneers are installed to change the appearance of the patient’s teeth without the need to shave off a lot of enamel, like during crown installation. Veneers cover only the front of the patient’s dentition. They are made from porcelain or polymer resin. The materials differ in their colour, opacity and durability. The wide selection of veneer materials allows the clinics to select veneers based on the patient’s needs.
Dental crowns are installed to cover the entire surface of the teeth. They have a cosmetic and a practical function. Crowns improve the appearance of damaged teeth by repairing visible damage, and because they are made from durable materials, they restore the patient’s ability to use the previously damaged teeth. Dental crowns can be made from a single material or a combination of several layers. The dentist will offer you the type of dental crown depending on where it will be installed, as well as your aesthetic and financial considerations.
Teeth whitening is a procedure used to remove discolouring from natural teeth. It uses several chemical agents to whiten the dental enamel and remove mineralised tartar from the tooth surface. Teeth whitening procedures in Turkey take very little time and may be performed as part of a more comprehensive smile restoration procedure.
Gum contouring and gum lift
Gum contouring procedures are used to reshape patients’ gum lines and make their smiles less gummy. The procedure involves removing or reshaping excess gum tissue to make the patient’s teeth more prominent and make their smile show less of their gums. The reverse procedure, a gum lift, is used if the patient’s gums have receded and exposed their tooth roots. The surgery involves reshaping the patient’s gums to cover the exposed parts of their teeth.
Best teeth implants Turkey
Turkey’s clinics have become very popular for their dental implant treatments. Dental implants in Turkey’s clinics are made by the same manufacturers as those installed in the UK clinics, but they cost far less in Turkey due to several factors. It makes Turkey an attractive destination for implant installation, especially among people who need a full-mouth implant procedure.
The type of best Turkish dental implants that is most suitable for you depends on your oral health, the number of teeth you want to restore and whether you have an allergic reaction to titanium, a common material for dental implants.
Titanium implants are made from a titanium-containing alloy. These implants are the first viable type of dental implants to be used in dentistry. Because of this, there are many types of titanium implants in use today, and most dental implant systems, Such as All-on-X procedures, use titanium implants as the support for visible dental prostheses. Titanium is a light and durable metal, making it a perfect material for dental implants. It is not toxic and does not react with the patient’s tissues meaningfully.
Nevertheless, a minimal number of patients, less than one per cent, have an allergic reaction to titanium. They are recommended to install porcelain implants to avoid any side effects.
Zirconia is a porcelain used for several types of dental restorations. Zirconia implants are both non-toxic and hypoallergenic. They are also more aesthetic because zirconia is white and does not look out of place if the patient’s gums recede or otherwise make a part of the implant visible. Most zirconia implants are single-piece, but if you are getting procedures at the best dentist in Turkey for implants, you may be offered a two-piece zirconia implant. Two-piece implants use an abutment to install a dental prosthesis at an angle to the screw of the implant.
All-on-6 dental implants
At the best dental implant clinic in Turkey, such as FindGlob, you can restore your teeth with All-on-X dental implant systems. They are full-jaw fixed bridges that use fewer implants for support. For example, an All-on-4 implant system uses only four implants to support a bridge that restores all the teeth in a single jaw. Patients who have enough bone density and want more stability can get bridges with six or eight implants.
Zygomatic implants can be used to install a fixed bridge on the upper jaw if a patient does not have enough bone density for other types of implants. A zygomatic system is supported by four implants, two of which are much longer than typical. These implants reach into the patient’s cheekbones, which are much denser than jawbones, allowing the dentist to attach the implant securely.
Additional procedures for implant installation
If a patient does not have enough bone density for a dental implant, they may have a bone graft surgery in our clinic. This surgery increases the patient’s bone density by transplanting material from the patient’s non-essential bones or by using a synthetic filler material. Another surgery that may be required before the patient can get an implant in Turkey is a sinus lift. If the sinuses are too close to the upper jaw, installing an implant without perforating the sinuses may be impossible.
A sinus lift is used to move the sinus cavities higher, freeing up space for the implants. To learn more about the treatments in Turkey and get a free online consultation, contact FindGlob using the provided information.
