Facial expressions are essential in the way we communicate with people.
Just like a frown of the brow can mean you’re feeling angry or concerned, a big grin from ear to ear can show others you’re pleased to see them and that you’re a friendly, approachable person.
But for those who are unhappy with the look of their teeth, smiling can make them very self-conscious, meaning they shy away from showing their smile in social situations.
And being such a key facial feature, many people find ways to improve their teeth, through braces, whitening or dental implants to create a drastic new look.
What are dental implants?
For those whose teeth are in poor condition, or missing entirely, dental implants are an effective, permanent way of improving the look of your teeth.
For those who opt for dental implants, they may have already tried a number of solutions including dentures and dental bridges to improve their teeth.
Dental implants are a much better alternative to these two options, as they are safer to your natural teeth and are very easy to maintain.
So, how do dental implants work?
A dental implant is secured using a metal post that is surgically placed into your jawbone, below the gumline.
The metal post gives a sturdy base to an artificial tooth, which is mounted onto the metal post by a dental specialist.
When the procedure is complete, there is a healing period in which the bone grows around the implant, ensuring it has bonded to the jawbone tissue.
If this is successful, a dentist will then place an abutment on top of the implant, to support the dental crown and mimic the enamel on your teeth.
And what’s great about dental implants is they don’t have the appearance of artificial teeth. They look like just like real teeth, and, once secured, go completely unnoticed by the patient.
Although dental implants mean the patient having to undergo a number of procedures, the changes they can make to someone’s smile, and of course, confidence, is invaluable.
Dental implants are an effective way of permanently fixing missing teeth, and they don’t require much post-op maintenance, unlike dental bridges.
Being such an effective treatment, dental implants do come with a price tag.
In the UK, dental implants, on average, can cost anything around £800 per implant.
How much does it cost to have dental implants in Turkey?
For some, this hefty price can be just that bit too expensive for those wanting to improve their smile.
But, you’ll be pleased to know, there are in fact other ways to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted, for much less.
To make this procedure a reality, people wanting dental implants can look to travel abroad to have their surgery in another country, where fees are lower.
Turkey is one of the most popular countries to travel to for cosmetic surgery, being particularly popular across Europe.

This is why with MedicoTrips, in Turkey, dental implants can cost as little as £450 per implant.
