What is a Dental Implant, and how does it work?
Dental professionals commonly see dental implants as the most effective treatment in the market for restoring impaired or lacking natural teeth. They are recognized by dentists as far more durable compared to any other restorative treatments available today in Cosmetic Dentistry. In fact, with the proper care, they endure for a lifetime with superior functionality than dentures or any other procedures.
Dental implants are placed using tiny screws made of titanium (a thin, robust and biocompatible material), which are intended to work just like a natural tooth root.
The surgeon inserts the implant into the jawbone, and with time they blend, as the jawbone integrates the titanium material surface. Typically, the healing process takes at least eight weeks, and after this period, a crown, bridgework, or denture is secured to the implant with the help of an abutment. Then the freshly restored tooth or teeth will look and feel much like your natural teeth, and your smile, bite and confidence will be fully restored!
What are the implant surgery phases?
It is a 3 phase process.
First, the qualified oral surgeon will do the placement of the implant itself, that will imitate the natural root of the tooth.
Second, an abutment is attached to form the tooth above the gum line.
Third, the replacement tooth (crown) is positioned to look and function like it was natural.
What other procedures might be required before placing dental implants?
It is typical for the bone around the region where teeth have been lost to reduce in size naturally. This process is called bone loss and can be triggered by the following factors:
- Tooth loss
- Gum disease
As dental implants are surgically positioned into the jaw, some patients will need a surgery called Bone grafting to insert new bone and generate a safe space for placing the implants.
Five important things that will influence the costs
1- How many replacements the patient will need
The cost will be different depending on the number of implants required. Repairing several missing teeth will be more expensive than the restoration of a single tooth.
2- Location of the tooth
Each patient’s mouth is different and demands individualized care. Different types of teeth can require slight adjustments in the procedure to achieve the best results. The angle of the front teeth is especially important as it will need to match the existing jawline to make sure your smile looks excellent. Certain scenarios require more complex work, which can also affect the cost.
3- Bone Density
There has to be sufficient bone to ensure the titanium post of the implant for them to be successful. Low bone density won’t disqualify you from choosing dental implants, but it will require more preparatory work to ensure a successful result. Initial bone grafts or sinus augmentations can be options to prepare your mouth to receive a replacement tooth successfully.
4-The Need for Extractions
A separate procedure may be needed if you have teeth that need to be extracted.
5- Overall Oral Health
Patients who suffer from gum disease or other oral health conditions may need independent initial treatments to ensure a healthy mouth and the best likelihood for successful implantation.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does it hurt to get Dental Implants?
With sedation techniques and helpful instructions for home care following the procedure, many people experience recovery better than medical prediction. They often return to work and their daily activities in a short period. While there may be some discomfort, this typically lasts only temporarily, but the new teeth are permanent!
How Do I Care for My Dental Implants?
With the same hygiene you are used to when caring for your natural teeth: brush, floss and visit your dentist for regular cleanings and check-ups.
Why getting Dental Implants in Antalya costs so much less than in the United Kingdom?
Several factors contribute to making running a dental centre in the United Kingdom more expensive than it is in Turkey.
Dental Implants there average a cost in the range of 750 – 1550 euros, while in Antalya it would cost less than the half.
As a result of that price disparity, dental travel was born. It’s a strong and rising trend today that makes thousands of people travel to take care of their oral health.

The dental implant (titanium cylinder) enables the “reconstruction” of a missing tooth. It serves as an artificial root which enables the attachment of a crown when inserted into the jawbone (false tooth). The procedure is dependable, but it is time-consuming and can not be determined in haste.
“A dental implant is an artificial root, normally made of titanium, that replaces a natural root that has been removed or damaged by accident, infection, or periodontal disease,” describes stomatologist Dr. Guy Lasry. The implant is positioned in the jawbone, assuming that there is plenty bone.
In the other side, if the tooth’s root is in excellent health, the dentist would not recommend an implant. “This is important to note that an implant is not a dental prosthesis, but rather the anchor point for a fixed prosthesis: a crown or brace where many teeth are involved, or the dental appliance with a reversible prosthesis,”
Why get a dental implant?
Dental implants can be proposed to patients who have had one or more teeth extracted. The reason is not only aesthetic: the dental implant allows the patient to regain comfortable chewing abilities. It also prevents the adjacent teeth from having to compensate by being raised, for example.
Is it painful?
Dental implants are placed under local anesthesia and are painless.
The dentist decides whether or not a dental implant should be inserted after a surgical examination and a panoramic X-ray (or even a CT scan of the jaw).
After that, the teeth and gums are handled so the mouth must be cleared of pathology before dental implants can be inserted. “Perfect dental hygiene is needed to reduce the chances of infection and implant failure,”.
What is the cost of an implant?
The cost of an implant is also prohibitive in Europe. The average price is between 1300 and 1500 euros, but it can go from 800 to 2500 euros or more, while the price in Turkey varies from 350 € to 500 €.
The cost of the prosthetic act (cost of the prosthesis, complexity of realization, materials…), all the technological platform used by the dentist, the costs and charges related to the office, to the personnel….
Before making any decision, do not hesitate to ask for an estimate of your dental treatment, which will show you the final cost to be paid.
