What you need to know about?
We always advise our potential patients to visit a local dental clinic before contacting us. At this clinic, first they will check your health, and the condition of your teeth. There are too many factors that will determine what treatment you need.
Therefore, take your 3D Dental tomography and talk to your local dentist. The dentist will inform you about the final cost that you can use to compare the prices in Turkish dental clinics.
The next step is to decide the location of the dental clinic. For example, Americans prefer Mexico because it is the closest location to them. Other most popular places for dental surgeries are Turkey, India, Poland, Thailand and Hungary. There are several cities where dental clinics are located in each country. Sometimes the best dental clinics can be the ones that are furthest from the capital.
The Best cities in Turkey for Dental Tourism
You may be closer to Istanbul, the most famous city in Turkey than you think. It only takes four hours to get here by plane. Ticket prices differ between low-cost airlines and luxurious airlines. Izmir and Antalya are two other famous cities in Turkey, which are only a few hours away by plane from Istanbul. Whichever of these cities you choose, you will not compromise on the quality of dental treatment you will receive. In addition, some clinics in Turkey also have branches in other cities. People generally make their choices according to the city’s attractions and entertainment activities.
For example, a lot of people who come to Turkey expect the capital to be the most favourite tourist destination and the heart of the country as it is in the US and in the UK. Ankara is an administrative center like Washington, which has small tourist sites compared to Istanbul and has no attractive beaches compared to Antalya.
Dental clinics in Antalya are the most preferred by dental tourists. Antalya is an attractive city with 5-Star resorts and hotels located very close to the beaches. These hotels from the moment you checked in, are famous for their all-inclusive services, such as accommodation, beach bars, and buffet.
Some other dental tourists prefer to visit Istanbul’s attractive historical sites such as Grand Bazaar, Sultan Ahmet, Dolmabahçe Palace, Hagia Sophia, and Topkapı Palace.
Izmir was founded by the Greeks and captured by the Romans. It was rebuilt by Alexander the Great in the fifteenth century before the Ottoman Empire conquered the city. Due to all these features, Izmir, which has a rich and impressive history, is the third biggest city in Turkey.

Is flying to Turkey for dental treatments worth the risk?
To answer this question honestly and truly, we need to determine what risks we should consider. Even after reading this article, you may still have untouched concerns and you may not trust such things unless you face them in real life. This is a situation that can be understood.
There is no risk of having dental treatment in Turkey, except for the simple fears people feel about coming to a country they have never been to. You may be worried that Turkish dental clinics will disrupt your teeth, take your money, will not maintain their guarantees and will not answer your calls.
Dental clinics have to protect their reputation in the worldwide market. Only reliable and trustworthy clinics can survive. Every online review is quite precious for them.
70% of people who prefer Turkey for dental tourism, come here with the guidance of the people who recommend the clinic where they have previously been treated. Therefore, maintaining high quality and standards will benefit clinics to attract more international patients. In a modern, and competitive world, it is a fact that reducing costs and compromising the quality business model cannot survive in the dental industry.
The actual risks of dental implants are similar to those you would face in the UK, for example:
- Infection at the implant site.
- Injury or damage to surrounding structures, such as other teeth or blood vessels.
- Nerve damage, which can cause pain, numbness or tingle in your natural teeth, gums, lips or chin.
- Sinus problems, when dental implants placed in the upper jaw protrude into one of your sinus cavities.
Imagine that you smile wonderfully with your White teeth throughout your life. It would be great to smile while taking pictures, and not to worry about the appearance of your teeth again. If your teeth have been worrying you for quite a long time, do you think it is worth going to Turkey and having a smile makeover?
Turkey is a developed country with high standards and competitive power. These features have made it one of the best places for dental patients. Besides, with a rich history and superior customer service, hosting 5-star hotels and holiday resorts gives you the chance to enjoy your holiday to the fullest.
