Dental Implants - cost & reccommendations?

Wow!  Teeth are probably my specialist subject and I have paid for both private and NHS work.  I paid privately for a wisdom tooth removed - £200, private gum work which ended up with a remortgage and only yesterday paid for an NHS dentist root canal filling (ouch!) with one x-ray, £35.00. I think the Turkish Dentists have been "filled" with misinformation on what we pay and they should consider an extraction!

Linda I would consider a long drive in the UK.  Check out the NHS website where there is a link to dentists, put in your postcode and it comes up with the nearest dentists that are taking on patients.  You can always pretend you live somewhere else - I noticed that mine is taking on new patients if you fancy a trip to Birmingham!!!

PS - have you considered a bridge rather than an implant?

Implants will only be good if the gum and jaw bone in the area is healthy. Often it is not just the tooth that is bad.

A bridge is a simple job. The tooth or teeth that will be used to support the new 'tooth' will have to be strong enough for the job otherwise they might not last as long if they had been on their own.Some care in eating will be needed in the future so as not to break the fitting - jaws have a lot of power!

Sometimes it is worth spending the time to have the gums peeled back and the diseased bone removed and the gums stiched back in place.

That was in UK Linda.
I'd go with Lynne and consider a bridge, I've had one for 15 years now and never had a bit of bother with it.

A Turkish friend of ours had veneers done on his top teeth this year-they look really good-and cost £400!!! Would have been in the thousands in the UK.
Sorry don't know where he had them done-only that it was in Fethiye.

I emailed the clinic at Fetip and have only just stopped laughing from their prices:

Check up £26
Full Clean £52
Full Teeth Bleaching £416
White Composite or amalgam Fillings: £52ea
Crowns and veneers £104 ea.

My dentist in London isn't even that much.

Am checking out another dentist in Fethiye next week, his family have been dentists for 3 generation and he speaks English will keep you posted.

Seems the Turkish dental practices have used some imagination in their estimates of UK prices. For bridgework Dental Holiday says UK prices are £500 per tooth, Fethiye Dental Centre says £2000! I had this work done privately this year in UK at £300 per tooth. However, the Turkish prices quoted are much lower, Dental Holiday = £130 and Fethiye DC = £115 is even cheaper so it had no need to invent the silly UK numbers.
