Dental Implants in Istanbul

Compare 9 clinics

Dental implants, also known as endosseous implants are used in order to provide a stable platform and support for a dental prosthesis such as a denture, bridge or crown. Implants are usually used as a platform to support dental crowns. Dental implants are made out of titanium and zirconia with the latter being in use for a shorter period of time – titanium dental implants have been the norm due to the metal’s durability and biocompatibility. Advances in the field of implantology made dental implant problems a very rare occurrence – reliability of the implant itself and the fact that it’s a very safe procedure are just a few factors that make it such a popular choice for dentists as well as patients.

Dental Implants Candidates

Dental implant surgery is recommended for individuals with missing teeth or patients who need dentures.

Am I Suitable for Dental Implants?

A dental implant procedure is not recommended for individuals that suffer from jaw bone loss, diabetes, a suppressed immune system, individuals that had radiation therapy on the head or neck or individuals that had a heart attack recently. Pregnant women should avoid having dental implant surgery – it’s best to wait a bit.

Preparing for Dental Implants

It’s usually a good idea for the patient to have a set of dental x-rays before leaving for dental implants overseas.

How is Dental Implants Performed?

A dental implant process can be divided into two sections and two sessions with the dentist:

During the first session of a dental implant procedure, the dentist will create an incision into the gum, in the area where the implant will be placed. The gum tissue is then pushed back in order to expose the bone – this is where the actual implant will be placed. A small hole will be drilled and the dentist will proceed to screw the titanium or zirconia implant in. Once the implant is placed, the abutment can be put in place over the implant. A temporary dental crown is then placed over the abutment.

During the second session of the implant surgery, the dentist will remove the temporary crown and place the permanent dental crown or bridge. Dental implant pain is practically non-existent as anaesthesia is administered to the patient before the procedure begins. The average dental implant recovery time is around 2 months – this is the time it takes for the bone to completely heal and tighten the implant in place.

A dental implant abutment can be made from either titanium or zirconia, depending on where the implant is placed.

Dental Implants Risks and Complications

Dental implant complications can include:

● Dental implant failure (the fracture implant abutment screw, implant or both)
● Infection of the area - easily treatable with antibiotics
● Blood vessels, tissue and teeth structures around the implant can be damaged
● The implant can push into a sinus cavity (upper jaw implants only)

It’s worthy to note that dental implant problems are few and far between. Implant fractures are at 0.14%. Crown fractures are at 4.5%.

Dental Implants Side Effects

Dental implant surgery side effects can include swelling, slight bleeding, discomfort and pain which can be soothed with painkillers.

Dental Implants Success Rates

Dental implants are one-time investment, as they usually last a lifetime. Dental implant patient reviews report a 96.8% success rate.

Before and After Dental Implants

Dental implants are practically indistinguishable from natural teeth. When a ceramic crown is used, the material will reflect light in the same way as a real tooth would do. Patients can request dental implant pictures from clinics before visiting them for treatment.

Istanbul

Istanbul is the biggest city in Turkey and In Europe, according to population – it has over 14 million inhabitants. Istanbul is Turkey’s financial, cultural and healthcare hub – it’s the city with the most JCI accredited private hospitals. The city spreads on both sides of the Bosphorus – The strait that divides the Marmara Sea and the Black Sea. Istanbul also connects Europe to Asia forming a very interesting mix, both gastronomically and culturally.

Over 11 million tourists visited Istanbul in 2012, making it the fifth most popular tourist destination in the world.

Sights to See

The Blue Mosque
The Sultan Ahmed Mosque, also called the Blue Mosque incorporates Islamic architecture and Byzantine Christian elements in its design. It is considered to be the last great mosque of the classical period. The Mosque got its name from the 20,000 Iznik blue ceramic tiles used to line its interiors. The Blue Mosque is also the final resting place of Sultan Ahmed which commissioned the building in 1609, with work finishing in 1616.

Basilica Cistern
The Basilica Cistern is one of the most popular tourist sites in Istanbul. The Cistern is huge, with a total of 336 columns arranged in 12 rows. It was built in order to store water during the Byzantine time – in the 6th century. Most of the columns feature decorative carvings, as they were re-used from other classical-age structures. Some of the most interesting columns on the site are the Medusa stones, in the north-west corner of the Cistern.

Topkapı Palace
Topkapı Palace is one of the finest examples of Islamic art and architecture. The palace itself was built by Mehmet the Conqueror in the 15th century and has been the residence of Ottoman Sultans for over 400 years. The palace is a vast complex of richly decorated courtyards and rooms. The palace features a Harem, the Imperial Treasury room, the Imperial Council Chamber, the Second Court, the Third Court (the Sultan’s private rooms) and the Palace Kitchens. The palace became an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985 and has been described as “one of the best examples of palaces of the Ottoman period”.

Tourists can enjoy a wide range of shopping centres and bazaars such as the Grand Bazaar, the Egyptian bazaar and many modern shopping malls all around Istanbul.

Things to Know

● Tourists arriving in Istanbul will be required to purchase a tourist Visa – the procedure can be easily done online or at a visa machine before the immigration section of the airport. The Visa costs around 20 USD.

● There are 3 main airports in Istanbul. Hazerfen Airport is a private airport with limited traffic. Atatürk Airport is located on the European side of Istanbul and Sabiha Gökçen Airport is located on the Asian side of Istanbul. Usually planes land at the Atatürk Airport (IATA:IST) which is just 20 km from the city centre. From there a visitor can take a taxi to Taksim Square for around TRY60. Tourists can also use a local airport service called Havataş which runs express bus services every 30 minutes for around TRY11 to Taksim Square and Aksaray.

● Food and drink at the airport is quite expensive and may cost 4 times more than in the city. It is advisable to bring your own meals from the town if you have a lot of waiting to do at the airport. There is also a supermarket close to the airport metro entrance where you can buy reasonably priced food and drink.

● You can change any sort of currency into the Turkish Lira (TRY) just about anywhere across Istanbul. Most shops and supermarkets also accept credit cards for payment.

● Roaming fees in Turkey are expensive, but you can simply buy a new SIM card when you reach Istanbul and use it for the duration of your stay.

● Istanbul has a humid subtropical climate, so the summer months are generally warm and in winter temperatures differ from place to place.

Dental Implants FAQ

?
Will it hurt?

You won’t feel a thing – the surgeon will administer anaesthesia before beginning to plant the dental implant. Some patients may feel mild discomfort but that is comparable to a regular filling procedure.

?
What is the best dental implant abutment type?

This depends, dental implant abutments can be made out of titanium, gold, surgical stainless steel or zirconia, with the latter being a relatively newer material choice. While zirconia is more aesthetically pleasing, it is not as durable as titanium for example and a good dentist would recommend a titanium abutment for teeth subjected to high amounts of pressure – the molars for example.

?
Dental Implant vs Bridge – What is better?

If the patient has enough jaw bone tissue to support an implant, it’s definitely the better choice. If there is not enough tissue, the patient may opt for a dental implant bone graft or a dental bridge. Dental bridges will need to be replaced every 10-15 years but dental implants last a lifetime.
