Clinical research shows good teeth also play a major role in our overall medical health. A great smile not only boosts our self-esteem and confidence but also allows us to eat the types of food our body needs to stay healthy.

 The time taken and costs involved are outlined below. However, if you would prefer to discuss your treatment face-to-face with one of our dentists,

ALL-ON-4 TREATMENT:

IMPLANT BASED FIXED DENTURES

This is a question many of our patients ask when they get in touch for the first time. Some with removable dentures have found All-on-4® techniques have been life-changing and we’re always delighted to see them smile with confidence after the treatment.

 

All-on-4® treatment is often the best alternative for patients who use removable dentures. For a start, it includes immediate-load implants which provide patients with a fixed, full-arch prosthesis on the day of the surgery, ensuring both function and aesthetically-pleasing results from day one. 

The procedure can usually go ahead if the following conditions are me.​

  • If the patient has sufficient primary bone contact and primary stability.

  • If the patient does not suffer from diabetes.

  • If the patient has enough time to allow implant treatment to be properly completed.

  • If there is the required quantity and quality of bone at the implant site.

  • If the patient is aged over 18.

  • If a patient with high blood pressure or a history of heart disease has first consulted their doctor and has been given the go-ahead.

Many of the physical requirements can be checked by a panoramic X-ray, which is offered as part of our free consultation. Our experts can then advise patients on the best individual treatment plan for them.

 

However, patients overseas can also send X-rays and images taken elsewhere. We will then offer a clear and concise treatment plan via a video call and even share before-and-after images illustrating implant-supported, full-mouth solutions 

In dentistry, inserting implants after an extraction is known as an “immediate load”. There are certain criteria which have to be met to avoid the risk of infection and there needs to be sufficient bone in the area of the extraction. However, immediate implants are generally faster and more comfortable as long as the procedure is performed by a specialist dental surgeon.

FIRST STAGE

STEP 1: IMPRESSION FOR TEMPORARY DENTURES

We acquire an impression to allow us to model a temporary denture set that will be used after the operation.

 

STEP 2: OPERATION DAY

Dr Kavasoglu loads the implants on the top and bottom jaw. The patient will have temporary teeth to use immediately after the implant operation. 

 

STEP 3: CHECK-UP

HEALING TIME

A minimum of 90 days is required to allow for the adaptation of bone and implant. The recovery period can actually be as long as nine months in some cases but the second stage will certainly not proceed for at least three months.

Minimum 90 days is required for the adaptation of bone and implant. It can be up to 9 months but 2nd stage can not be started before 3 months.  

2ND STAGE

Most of your treatment have been done in your first stage. You will have your temporary teeth after 3-4 appointments. We do not need you everyday. Appointments includes impressions and fitting procedures.

Treatment is our main focus but, of course, we are aware that you will probably look forward to enjoying some of the attractions around Fethiye during your treatment. Perhaps you would like to plan a day at the beach at Ölüdeniz or the Blue Lagoon, enjoy a 12 Islands Boat Trip and take in the amazing bays or watch the stunning sunsets over Fethiye Bay. 

 

As a result, we will make sure you never leave our clinic without teeth and All-on-4 treatment provides you with a new smile on the operation day. Patients – and, increasingly, dentists - are demanding shorter treatment times but being without a "permanent" solution can be psychologically challenging.

 

But don’t worry! You will never leave the Holident Dental Hospital without fully-functioning temporary teeth, fitted as part of your All-On-4 treatment. Our anesthesia team will also provide you with the right medicines to lower your sensitivity after the operation. Examples of temporary teeth can be viewed here:

Full-mouth All-on-4® treatment requires two dentures and a minimum of eight implants and the cost of the treatment starts from £7,500. However, it’s important to emphasise that each patient’s requirements are different so our surgeon and co-founder Dr Kavasoglu will need to see your X-rays first. 

 

If you don’t have them, patients are welcome to visit Holident Dental Hospital for a free consultation which includes 3D tomography and panoramic X-rays to allow us to establish a bespoke treatment plan for you.

 

However, if you already have the required X-rays, we recommend you book a video call and send us copies beforehand. We should then be able to provide all the information you need before you visit us in Fethiye.

You can see testimonials about implant treatment from former patients here. Also, why not visit our social media accounts to find out more about what people have been saying about us? We’re on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

INDIVIDUAL, IMPLANT-SUPPORTED,

FULL-MOUTH SOLUTIONS

Our first aim is always to preserve and protect healthy teeth but, if you already have quite a few missing, we can fill the gaps with implants and crown the remaining ones to complete your new, full-mouth smile.

 

When you visit Dr Kavasoglu for your consultation, he will first check your X-ray to see which teeth are healthy and which are loose before sharing his assessment with you. This will include his expert analysis of the following:

 

• Healthy teeth: These are the remaining ones which have a healthy root and are surrounded by healthy gums which can either remain as they are or be crowned to complete your new smile.
 

• Teeth which require attention: These include teeth affected by a root canal infection or gum disease which, with the right treatment, could still be preserved and then crowned if required. Patients requiring root canal treatment will be seen by our specialist endodontist Dr Irmak Eroglu. Alternatively, our cosmetic dentists will deal with cavities while Dr Kavasoglu will treat gum infections.

 

• Loose or mobile teeth: Wobbly or insecure teeth will probably require extraction in future anyway so will be removed and replaced. Implant-supported crowns will be inserted both for aesthetic reasons and to restore the patient’s chewing. 
 

• Missing teeth: Implants and implant-supported crowns and bridges will be inserted to provide the patient with a full-mouth smile and to fill any existing gaps. The number of implants required will depend on the position of the missing teeth and the condition of the jawbone at the sites where they are required. However, it’s important to understand, if you have three missing teeth in a row, it doesn't mean you will require three implants. Implant-supported crowns and bridges offer 100% function and aesthetically pleasing results so two implants and three crowns may well be enough. 

 

Implant treatment is usually carried out in two phases. The first is the implant operation and the second is the fitting of the crowns. If a patient also requires restorative work on existing teeth this will also be carried out after the initial implant operation. However, nothing proceeds until each patient has been informed about their suggested treatment and fully understands both the procedures involved and the cost. 

 

Phase One: Two appointments over seven days

The first stage includes the initial implant operation when our surgeon will also install any temporary teeth which may be required to last the patient until the second stage.

 

Phase Two: Four appointments over 14 days

The second phase will not proceed until at least three months after the first – although, in some cases, it may be longer. It includes the installation of new, permanent teeth and any other restorative work which may be necessary. The procedures will usually be carried out over a minimum of two weeks but may take longer, depending on the amount of work required.

Thanks to modern dentistry, implants are inserted directly into the jawbone, which might sound uncomfortable. However, it’s important to remember - unlike soft tissue - bone is usually nerveless so procedures can actually be relatively painless. Local anesthetic is usually enough to manage the patient’s comfort.

 

However, we understand some patients may still suffer from dentafobia so, if you prefer, our expert team can offer a general anesthetic. Please click here to find out more about sedation and general anesthesia.

With proper dental care and good oral hygiene, a dental implant can actually last a lifetime. 

You can visit your dentist for a check-up every year.

#3 AFTER SERVICE SUPPORT

"We have been treating patients in Fethiye since 2003"

It’s been a privilege to watch the Holident brand develop over the last 15 years. What began as a small clinic in Fethiye is now the centre of a worldwide community which we strive to ensure transcends the usual relationship between dentist and patient. Indeed, to us, all our patients are much more than just a number and a file; they are family which we are proud to serve. We are not a mobile brand; we have been treating patients in Fethiye since 2003 and plan to remain here for many more years to come.

PARTIAL IMPLANTS

Losing chewing function can have a significant impact on both your health and your quality of life and it’s not just about missing out on the food you love.

  • If you have missing teeth on one side of your mouth it’s natural to chew with the other, which will cause unequal pressure on your jaw and muscles. That can affect the asymmetrical shape of your face and load more pressure onto the healthy side of your mouth. 

  • If you have missing teeth on both sides of your mouth, you may lack chewing function, which means you may be swallowing food which presents more of a challenge for your digestive system. That may encourage you to stick to less-challenging, softer foods which are mostly comprised of carbohydrates. 

  • Many of our patients who have missing front teeth are reluctant to smile, which means they can miss out on enjoying happy events to the full. If you find it hard to laugh or smile, research also suggests it can have an impact on both your social and professional life.

  • There are many ways to improve your smile and chewing function, including partial dentures or bridges. However, dental implants replace natural teeth permanently and offer 100% of the same function and benefits. Patients can look forward to eating, speaking, and smiling with total confidence and comfort while implants also restore the natural balance of your mouth and jaw. Alternative solutions such as bridges or partial dentures may not be able to offer the same stability, which can have detrimental long-term effects.

If you are missing three teeth side by side, that doesn’t necessarily mean you need an implant to replace each one. A bridge with three crowns over two implants may be sufficient. You can see before-and-after images below.

Thanks to modern dentistry, implants are inserted directly into the jawbone, which might sound uncomfortable. However, it’s important to remember - unlike soft tissue - bone is usually nerveless so procedures can actually be relatively painless. Local anesthetic is usually enough to manage the patient’s comfort.

#2 PRICING:"We will only recommend the treatment you need"

At Holident, we have never pushed our patients towards the treatment which costs the most. If you only need six crowns, we will never recommend more and, if there is a chance of preserving a natural tooth, we will make every effort to do just that.

Implant treatment incorporates three elements:

Implant (screw) + abutment (the connection between crown and implant) + implant-supported crown. 

These three different elements have separate costs: 

 

Implant

We use two implant brands:

Straumann: A Swiss brand known around the world  

(Implant + Abutment costs  £990 per tooth)

Nucleoss: The best Turkish brand, FDA approved and with 25 years’ experience, trading in 33 countries. 

(Implant + Abutment costs  £495 per tooth)

Implant supported crown costs £160 per tooth. 

Here is a sample for calculating 2 implant + 3 crown treatment:

A bridge with 3 crowns and 2 implants and abutments to replace three missing teeth costs £1,410.

CONVENTIONAL IMPLANTS

The human body is designed to function at its best with a full set of teeth. Even one missing one can make a difference:

  • If you lose a tooth, it’s natural to try to chew with the other side of your mouth, which may then be overworked and suffer more wear and tear.

  • Unbalanced chewing can have an impact on the asymmetrical shape of your face.

  • Chewing with a full set of teeth is like exercise for your mouth and jaw and helps to keep both healthy. A missing tooth can lead to a weaker area and that can influence whether or not you will be able to have implants in later life.

  • An implant should last a lifetime and, if you have more than one missing tooth, implant-supported bridges can help fill the gaps. We try to encourage our patients to look at implant surgery as an investment in their health and well-being both now and in the future.

  • Replacing a missing front tooth can enhance your smile, your confidence and your own self-esteem. For example, did you know a missing tooth can lead to a deterioration in bone density which can cause facial disfigurement and make you appear older than you are? Our advice is don’t delay; after all, if you do nothing, then nothing will improve. 

 

As well as the gap in your smile, a missing tooth means losing stimulation of the bone when chewing. This not only has a detrimental effect on your dental health but missing teeth can also result in a loss of bone density which causes facial disfigurement and can make you appear older than you are. So, do not delay your implant treatment. Missing tooth can not be repaired without any treatment.
