Many people find dental work extremely high to afford especially in the UK, the USA, and some other European Countries when you compare it in Turkey. The prices of oral health in Turkey falls down so dramatically that draws attention for those who want a professional and affordable dental treatment.
There are various reasons about this huge price gap like, the number of shortage of dentists and private dental clinics, high lab prices, high dental material and equipment prices, expensive insurance costs, the rents etc.
You may easily find many offers with the highest quality treatment packages at the most competitive prices in Turkey. Patients can save at least 50-70% on the UK dental prices and when you compare the prices. On average, getting dental implants in Turkey can save you; 90% of the price in the US, 89% of the price in the UK, 70% of the price in Australia.
If we speak with numbers, here is the approximate costs. A Porcelain veneer costs about £500- £750 in the UK but it costs £170- £200 and last 10-25 years. Traditional fixed crown and bridge cost about £250 – £800 per unit but it costs £150- £450 in Turkey. The average cost of a single dental implant in the UK is £2,000 to £2,500 but it costs £600- £1000 in Turkey.
The writer of personal blog Traveling Claus has mentioned about his dental treatment experience in Turkey/ Istanbul and how much he has saved as he tells “I had four root canals and four zirconium crowns made at the Maltepe dental clinic and I paid 100€ for each root canal and 300€ for each zirconium crown, making it a total of 1600€ for the whole treatment. This is a hell of a lot cheaper than most western countries and as mentioned earlier.” You can find the full page here.
Finally, it seems that if you need a dental work to be done by qualified hands and it looks like unaffordable in your home country, dental tourism may be a reasonable solution for your problem.
