I know how invaluable these reviews are to people looking to get treatment abroad so I will try and cover everything as best I can.
The estimated cost for treatment based on 3-4 implant supported 6 tooth Zirconium bridge to replace 6 missing front uppers = 2,000 Euros. This included consultation, panoramic x-ray, surgery and temporary denture.
Any necessary bone graft is not included but estimated as 250 Euros maximum.
Actual treatment: 3 implant supported 6 tooth zirconium bridge and bone graft, panoramic x-ray, consultation and surgery. (6 tooth bridge will be fitted at a later date).
Actual Total cost = 1,900 euros which took into account the reduction in implants needed and the addition of the bone graft.
I made my initial contact with this clinic via WhatsApp and Dr Yildiz responded shortly after even though it was late evening. I put forward what work I wanted - all on 4 implants to replace 6 missing teeth and sent him a photo of my mouth. Dr Yildiz suggested a different treatment as it turns out my understanding of all on 4 was wrong. Dr Yildiz advised that a 3-4 implant supported bridge would be my best option and I agreed. We then discussed the price and timescale so I could arrange time off work. Dr Yiildiz also advised that I may also need a bone graft. The cost of any bone graft was included as an addition in the cost if it was needed, So there were no hidden extras. My communication with Dr Yildiz then varied between WhatsApp and email depending on how much detail was needed.
Once I booked my flight, I sent the details to the clinic again via WhatsApp and an appointment was booked for an initial consultant and x-ray a few hours after my arrival with surgery booked in for the following day - Saturday. This was tailored to my need, timescale and I was happy with this. The clinic sent a taxi to collect me and take me back to the hotel so there was no hassle or pressure to find the clinic. I was back at the hotel approximately an hour later after a stop off at the chemist to collect antibiotics and mouthwash for after surgery the next day so don't forget to take enough money with you. Approximately 40 TL covered my prescription, however, this may differ depending on what you need.
On the day of surgery, I would be lying if I said I was relaxed. I was a nervous wreck as I always am when getting work done on my mouth, however, Dr Yildiz and his assistant were marvellous and incredibly professional and patient putting me at ease so I soon relaxed. I needn't have worried I was 100% in safe hands, everything went well and with the exception of the pain from the injections I did not feel a thing. I was literally just a face in a chair as my entire body was covered over with surgical gowns, hair coverings etc in order to make everything as sterile as possible.
After making payment for this part of my treatment I was driven back to my hotel with an ice pack. After a couple of hours rest, I was out and about having a leisurely stroll taking in some of the sights and getting fresh air while being careful not to overdo it.
I had some swelling for the next couple of days which was only to be expected but it didn't really hinder me in any way. I returned to the clinic several times over the week I was there for Dr Yildiz to check my progress, realign my partial denture and ensure everything was ok. I had absolutely no problems at all with the surgery or afterwards which I am sure is a testament to Dr Yildiz's skill and experience.
I should point out that Dr Yildiz's proficiency in both written and spoken English is very good and I did not feel there would be any communication problems which eased any concerns I had in that respect.
I wanted to wait until a few weeks after treatment to write the review when everything had settled down. It has now been almost two months and everything is still going well. I am due to go back in February for the teeth to be fitted and can't wait to see the final result.
I am so impressed, I am looking to have my bottom teeth done too.
Due to the cost of treatment in the UK I had researched treatment in various countries over several months and chose this clinic because it ticked off all the key areas on my list such as cost, qualifications of staff, fluency of English, location and communication.
I was very impressed with Dr Yildiz's qualifications as I wanted to have my work done by someone who had the necessary skills and experience to do the job and could be verified independently. I also did not like the idea of what I call a conveyor belt clinic. I was looking for more of a personal approach.
On arrival at the clinic, I was impressed by the reception and waiting area of the clinic which was very nice, professional looking and has a very calm atmosphere. Everyone is required to wear shoe coverings on arrival to maintain hygiene standards. There are free water, tea and coffee making facilities.
The clinic has its own on-site state of the art panoramic x-ray scanner and all the treatment rooms are fitted out to a very high standard with all the latest up to date modern equipment and are very hygienic, clean, light and airy. Very impressive.
Also as an extra touch, there is also individual toothbrushes and toothpaste available for use in the very modern clean toilets if needed.
The staff are very friendly, make you feel very comfortable and relaxed. The clinic itself is very modern, relaxing and professional. I would and do recommend this clinic to anyone and everyone.
