Dental Implants - cost & reccommendations?
« on: November 10, 2005, 17:04:26 PM »
Hi All
Yes, I've done a search on here first but could find little concrete information on who has been to what dentist & whether they were happy & actual cost.

Problem - I have a tooth that needs attention. I do have a dental appointment next week for a check-up initially at a cost of £35 just for the check-up. Now I'm seriously wondering whether to keep this appointment & just have it seen to in Turkey.

I previously had asked my dentist about implants but he doesn't seem too keen to do this for me. The thought of dentures makes me feel sick & the tooth I'm now having problems with is next to one that has already been taken out. I have the feeling that my dentist will be pull crazy on this one too.

Has anyone had implants over there? Are you happy with them? Costs? Which dentist did you use & where are they located? Is there one that specialises in this form of work? Does he/she speak good English?

We are hoping to come out next month for a couple of months & I think I'd like to get this sorted in Turkey rather than pay privately here - unfortunately I'm one of those who hasn't got an NHS dentist.

Any info. would be appreciated.

Linda

Hi there, I haven't personally had implants out here but do know a couple of people who have.  

A friend of a friend had them done last year for around 10-20% of the price in the UK and was very happy with the work.  

I have a dentist in Fethiye who has been recommended to me as very good.  I am going to see her for a clean and check up next week.  I will ask her about implants and the associated costs and post when I have some news.

Have had clean, check up and filling work done whilst in Fethiye. Excellent treatment, great views from the surgery and very good value compared to UK. In fact I use them as my local now. Had some crowns priced and they were considerably cheaper than in UK.

Although I haven't used him myself there is a dentist that comes highly recommended. My partner's son and the husband of a forum member have both been to him. His name is Kadir Sarihan and he has a surgery close to the PTT in Fethiye. He's got very modern equipment and he speaks good English. He's also very cheap in comparison to UK dentists.

If you want his details e-mail me through the forum.

Try this one .....website is www.dental-holiday.com   surgery is in Fethiye and the site lists costs for various proceedures and also gives uk price for comparison.  You will fall off your chair when you see some of the prices. :)

I fell off my chair when I saw the UK prices.

Where did they get those prices from? I pay privately but have never paid anywhere near that much.
Is my dentist here that much less expensive than others?
From memory over the last few years I have paid approximately the Turkish cost in ££'s instead of $$'s.

The crowns I had fitted were quite a few years back but I had the new superclean (lazer?) last year for £35 & an extraction last year for around £35.

I may reconsider having the work done here if there isn't too much difference. The only problem is I don't think he's too keen on giving me implants.

Are the prices on that site expensive or normal? Is my dentist here much cheaper than normal?

No Linda I don't think they're normal at all.
I've just had one extraction, one small filling and a laser clean - £86.

Was that in this country or Turkey?
Which are the un-normal prices - My dentist or the Turkish prices?
