Turkish health care is of world-class standards and is very affordable. A million foreign patients visit Turkey every year for treatment. Additionally, Turkish citizens living in countries such as Germany, England, and America also prefer to have their medical treatment in Turkey.

The procedure may differ from clinic to clinic. However, when you contact our clinic, we arrange an online appointment with one of our dentists in order to show you exactly what to expect before the treatment.

We are an international dental clinic, and we know that dental treatments can only be successful when there is effective communication. Our dentists can speak English. We can arrange an interpreter for you if you speak a language other than English.

Antalya is a worthwhile place to come with your partner, and we recommend that you come that way. Most of our patients prefer to come with their partners or family. If you let us know in advance, we can make the necessary arrangements for the extra accommodation.

As Medical Dental, we use the highest quality dental products in all our treatments. For example, we prefer Straumann dental implants and crowns, a Swiss company and a global leader in implantology. We also noticed that many of the European patients we treat were directed to cheaper dental materials due to high costs in their countries.

You can buy a round-trip ticket to Antalya from all over Europe for an average of €400. Hotel fees range from €40 to €100 per night. For a two-week treatment and holiday, you need to pay on average between €1000 and €1800 depending on your choice of accommodation. Airfare is included in this price. A couple would spend between €1800 and €2500 in total, except for the treatment fee.

Implant treatments are two-stage treatments. However, during your first visit, we can insert your implant and discharge you with your temporary prosthesis after removing your old tooth and cleaning the infection and caries. But we will need to see you again about three months after your implant is inserted to fix your permanent crown.

Especially after complex dental treatment procedures, swelling of the gums, short-term bruising, bleeding, and severe pain may occur. So, you should be prepared for these complications.
You may need gauze in case of bleeding and a painkiller for aching, but we provide them for you in such cases. But you can carry a lip care cream and ice container with you.
