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, why not book a video call?

ALL-ON-4

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 met.​

  • If the patient does not suffer from diabetes.

  • If a patient with health concerns (like a history of heart disease) has firstly consulted to their doctor and has been given the go-ahead.

  • If there is enough bone at the implant sites.

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

  • If the patient is aged over 18.

Many of the physical conditions can be checked with a panoramic X-ray, which is offered as part of our free consultation. If needed additional 3D Tomography scan can be taken. Then our experts can advise the best individual treatment plan for the patient.

 

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

DAY 1 / Planning and consultation

- Preparing for the patient’s treatment plan using 3D tomography.

- Taking an impression for the patient’s temporary dentures which will be fitted on the day of surgery.*

- Scheduling a date for the operation.

* If an implant operation is performed under sedation, temporary dentures cannot be fitted on the same day. They will be fitted around 48 hours later.

* The quality of the patient’s bone structure influences whether temporary dentures are appropriate.

* Please note, once treatment is agreed, a deposit of £500 is payable in advance.

DAY 4 / Implant Operation and fitting temporary dentures

- Implant surgery will proceed in the morning followed by a denture fitting in the afternoon.

- We advise patients to wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothes and to enjoy a hearty breakfast on the day of their procedure as it may be a long time between meals. However, if the patient elects to have the surgery under sedation then we require that they arrive on an empty stomach. If they have eaten beforehand, we will not be able to proceed.

DAY 7 / Check-up

If the patient elected to have dissolvable stitches before the fitting of their temporary dentures, then they will be checked after one week. They should then dissolve gradually over a period as long as three months.

DAY 10 / Check-up and removal of non-dissolvable stitches

If the patient elected to have non-dissolvable stitches, these will be removed by our dental team after ten days.

HEALING TIME

A minimum of 90 days is required for integration of bone and implant. The recovery period can actually be as long as a year due to the patient's travel plans but the second stage will certainly not proceed for at least three months.

SECOND STAGE / 18 DAYS

It will be a minimum of three months before your dentist can begin the second phase of your treatment. Bear in mind, although no surgery is involved, the installation of your permanent dentures can take up to 18 days to complete. The fitting procedure includes, taking impressions and rehearsals, with the new dentures completed over four or five appointments.

 

Most of your treatment have been done in your first stage. If there are any implants lefted for healing without fixing to temporary teeth, firstly; those ones will need incisions for placing the abutments on them. 4-5 appointments are needed to finalize fitting and rehearsal procedures. We do not need you everyday. Appointments include impressions and fitting procedures. 18 days of stay is needed. 

COST

Full-mouth All-on-4® treatment requires two dentures and a minimum of eight implants and the cost of the treatment starts from £9.300. However, it’s important to emphasise that each patient’s requirements are different so our our surgeons Dr.Kavasoğlu and Dr. Betül Çalışkan Batı 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 panoramic X-rays to allow us to establish a bespoke treatment plan for you. If more detailed examination is needed, additional 3D tomography scan may be taken

 

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. 

 

Top and bottom minimum 8 or maximum 12 implants may be used in an all-on-4 procedure. Your x-ray will be used to make that decision. You can see an estimate of costs here. If your bone quality requires more implants, the price will rise by £545 for each additional implant.

INDIVIDUAL, IMPLANT-SUPPORTED,
FULL-MOUTH SOLUTIONS

INDIVIDUAL

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. Tonguç Kavasoglu and Dr. Btül Çalışkan Batı for your consultation, they 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 their 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. Tonguç Kavasoglu and Dr. Betül Çalışkan Batı 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. 

howlong?

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 if the gap is at the esthetic site our surgeon will also install any temporary teeth which may be required to last the patient until the second stage. Stitches will be taken in the second appointment after 5-7 days.

 

Phase Two: Four appointments over 10 days

The second phase will not proceed until at least three months after the first – it can be up to 12 months depending on to the patients' travel plans. 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 10 days but may take longer, depending on the amount of work required. 4-6 appointments will be needed. 

Thanks to modern dentistry, implants are placed directly into the jawbone, which might sound uncomfortable. 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.

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 have 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.
