Full mouth dental implants guide: everything you need to know to replace your teeth overseas
Are you thinking about alternatives for replacing missing or damaged teeth? In this article, we will present detailed information to help you learn more about the most common questions regarding teeth implants and why Turkey is a great place to get them.
What exactly is a teeth implant?
This treatment consists of inserting a device into the jawbone to substitute lacking teeth. Its phases are:
- In the first step, a qualified dentist uses a drill that he inserts in the gums to make a hole in the gum’s bone, providing a replacement tooth root.
- Then we have to wait for the healing process that usually takes eight weeks.
- The next step involves the placement of a crown, bridge, or denture onto your mouth’s new structure. To accomplish the feat, the surgeon will use an abutment.
This will simultaneously give you a fixed solution that will last very long, unlike removable dentures, and may be the perfect solution to someone who wants to restore his whole confidence in a great smile!
Here is a list of benefits:
- They are more secure ( can’t be lost, for example, as they are fixed)
- They preserve your chewing capacities
- They don’t interfere with the speaking process
- They don’t risk you getting bone resorption as dentures do
What are the advantages of getting teeth implants in Turkey?
Turkey’s healthcare prices are much more affordable than in other countries like the United Kingdom.
People from all over the world are running away from expensive dentistry procedures and so they are traveling to take care of their health abroad, where they can improve their health and meet new places and cultures at the same time, enjoying fair price, excellent service and cheap price.
The average amount of money one British citizen can save just by doing it in Turkey surpasses 50%.
What kind of materials are used in this treatment?
Usually, the material used is made from titanium (a light, durable metal) or zirconia, but there are other options that the dentist will assess depending on the patient’s mouth situation.
What are the steps involved in an initial consultation?
In your first visit to the clinics, our dentists team will work to provide an overall treatment plan that includes:
- Full check-up
- Image scans (full mouth panoramic X-ray)
- 3D CT scan if required
- Gum evaluation
- Bite analysis
- Costs and duration
What is the difference between the different types of implants?
Depending on the patient’s needs, the dentist will determine what type of surgery will work best to fit the patients demand. Of course, this can change according to each medical situation, and some people may need several surgeries before the prosthetic is in place. Other times a patient may not require many surgeries.
Because a dental implant is made to look just like a real tooth, this procedure attracts lots of people that are interested in natural looking teeth.
Are there any existing risks involved with this surgical operation?
As with all things, there are minor risks, but they are not something that will affect the functioning of the implants. In addition, these issues can be easily countered if the patient check the quality of his required oral hygiene every day.
Also, a minority of people that experience treatments for teeth restoration are concerned about what other people think about their new smile. They just care excessively about what other people are going to think – that their new smile is silly or not as nice as it could be. While this is a possible scenario, most people with an implant feel very comfortable and self-assured exhibiting their smile.
What is the cost for getting a full mouth dental implant?
The expenses for the implant procedure can vary widely depending on your insurance company and the benefits that you may be able to get. Because insurance companies cover many medical procedures that are performed in their network, it makes sense to try to get a reasonable discount.
But for general rules, you can expect the total cost to be between $1500 and $3500, depending on the type of implant you have.
How to decide about the clinic?
