Dental implants have always been a powerful solution to replace damaged or missing teeth. However, when it comes to the dental implant cost in Turkey, you might feel confused about the price range. Of course, that is a completely normal issue since the materials and techniques used vary from dental implant procedure to another. In this article, let us talk about the types of dental implants and their costs to learn more about how prices are determined.

Generally, a dental implant procedure involves several stages. For every stage, there is a different fee that collectively represents the final cost of the dental procedure. Let us have a look at those steps:
In the first dental appointment, the doctor will use tomography or 3D imaging to examine the bone structure and determine the density of the jaw bone. If the patient has no sufficient amount of bone, bone grafting is needed before implant placement. Dental bone grafts can add volume and density to specific areas of the patient’s jawbone where bone loss is and support the success of dental implants. Typically, the total cost of jawbone grafting is not included in the dental implant cost, and the patient has to pay extra money for this procedure.
The patient does not have to wait until he has a missing tooth to get a dental implant. He might get a severely damaged tooth that requires an extraction for better oral health. The doctor might advise different types of techniques, including simple extraction and surgical extraction. In a simple teeth removal procedure, teeth can be extracted under local anesthesia as one piece. While surgical extraction involves making an incision in the gums to remove the damaged tooth. It is usually done under general anesthesia. The cost of tooth extraction will be considered as an extra cost added to the final cost of a dental implant
During the consultation, the doctor will offer the patient several brands of dental implants. It is essential to choose the brand that can ensure the longevity and durability of the restoration. In the market, several dental implant manufacturers provide multiple types of dental implants at different prices, the higher quality the patient chooses, the greater cost he has to pay. At Mira Clinic, we use a German dental implant brand known as Biotec dental implants. It is made of high-quality materials in a precise way and functional design at very competitive prices.
When it comes to dental crowns, various materials such as porcelain, zirconia, metal, and composite resin are used to create crowns. Usually, the doctor helps the patient choose the material for his crown considering several factors, like the location and function of the tooth, the position of the gum tissue, the color of the surrounding teeth, and the damage of the tooth. The type of crown the patient chooses will affect the dental crown cost.
A dental implant consists of three parts, the metal screw, the abutment - the connector that attaches the screw to the crown- and the dental crown. Each part of these has a separate price. In Turkey, the average cost of a single dental implant ranges between $250 and $900.
Typically, if you have multiple missing teeth that are not adjacent, each crown needs a metal screw (implant) to hold in place. In case you want to replace missing neighboring teeth, you have a chance of using a dental bridge that can fill a gap of three or four teeth next to each other with one or two implants only. When it comes to cost, it's obvious that a dental bridge based on fewer implants will be less expensive than having an individual implant for each tooth.
A full-mouth tooth replacement is performed through several methods. You can replace your entire teeth individually, which requires a dental implant for each missing tooth. Although this method allows the cosmetic dentist to keep your existing healthy teeth, it will be more expensive than other options.
The cost of a full mouth implant in Turkey ranges from $2000 to $7000.
If you want to consider other approaches, such as All-on-4 or All-on-6, your entire teeth will be replaced with a tooth prosthesis based on four or six implants. Apparently, this method is cost-effective since it depends on a few dental implants.
As we mentioned before, a dental implant involves three items: the metal post, the abutment, and the crown. Each part has a separate price, and the crown is considered the most expensive part. However, all of these components are typically priced together in dental clinics.
