Frequently Asked

We have compiled the short answers to frequently asked questions about dental treatments in Turkey, the advantages of treatment prices, and general dental health for you below. You can contact us for any other questions you want to ask.

Why is dental treatment in Turkey cheaper than European countries?

Even though the same quality materials are used as they are imported from Europe, the reason for the cheaper prices are the considerably lower labour and overhead costs in Turkey. The high currency exchange rate is another reason you will pay less compared to the clinics back home.

How Long Will I Need To Stay In Turkey For?

The length of your stay will depend on the kind of treatment you would like to have. All dental treatments we offer can be completed in 7 days. The only exception is the implant procedure which two 7-day visits are required due to the two different stages of the treatment.

How Long Does It Take Implants To Heal?

It takes around three to six months for dental implants to be fully healed where you can go back to your daily routine without any issues. It can take longer for some patients,  depending on whether bone grafts or sinus lifts were used during the surgery, any other medical condition they may have or improper care following surgery. Smoking can also delay the healing the process.

Do wisdom teeth need to be extracted or can they be treated?

The loss of these teeth does not affect the chewing process, so there is no danger of their removal. It is very difficult to treat them because they are difficult to reach. These are the exhaustive prerequisites for extraction.

When is a surgical tooth extraction needed?

Surgical extractions are required when your the tooth is buried under the gums and some of the gum tissue or bone need to be removed to take out the damaged teeth. The are is then stitched carefully and left to heal completely. Local anaesthesia is used to numb the area which minimises the discomfort of the patient during the removal of the tooth.

What Is A Dental Bridge?

Dental Bridges are used to bridge the gap in between teeth. A bridge is commonly made up of two crowns with false tooth or teeth placed in between. Bridges are also referred to  as fixed removable dentures or fixed dental prosthesis. They are attached to your natural teeth or implants for support.

Dental bridges help restore your smile and support the neighbouring teeth so they aren’t misaligned.

What Is Gum Disease?

Also known as periodontal disease, gum disease is mostly caused by plaque and bacteria buildup that is not treated in its early stage. Other causes of periodontal disease include tobacco use, teeth grinding, some medications, and genetics. Gingivitis is the beginning stage of gum disease, and, if detected, is treatable. Gingivitis left untreated may turn into gum disease. Advanced gum disease will lead to tooth and bone loss, and is a permanent condition. Brushing your teeth regularly and visiting the dentist every six months will help prevent gingivitis and more severe cases of periodontal disease. Common signs of gum disease:

  • Red, irritated, bleeding, or swollen gums
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Loose teeth, or loss of teeth
  • Extreme tooth sensitivity
  • Receding gum line
  • Abscessed teeth
Are dental X-rays safe and needed?

Medical and dental experts study the use of X-rays and set limits for their safety. Your dentist should take as few as possible. Sometimes dentists may recommend X-rays to diagnose a special problem. Advancements in technology mean today’s digital X-rays release much less radiation and are safer than in the past.

Kids have more X-rays done than adults because their teeth are changing and because they get cavities more easily.

We offer as DMC Tour Dental free  X-ray and tomography services.

What are early signs of dental trouble?

Visit a dentist if you have any of these issues or see your child having trouble chewing or complaining of soreness:

Mouth sores
Jaw pain
Swollen face or gums
Tooth Sensitivity
Broken teeth
Dry mouth
Bleeding gums
Bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth.

How long will my Dental Implants last?

How long your implants will last depends on your oral hygiene routine and overall health. When both are good, your dental implants can last up to 15 years.

What are porcelain crowns?

Porcelain crowns are made from dental porcelain that is shaped to replicate the appearance of a natural tooth.

Porcelain crowns are strong and resilient; although they do age just likely your regular teeth and can need repairs or replacement if they become too damaged with time.

The porcelain crown often replaces a whole external section of a tooth all the way down to the level of the gum.

Crowns, in general, are a great way to fix a damaged tooth since they can recreate not only the form but also the function of the damaged tooth.

Porcelain Crowns can also be used to create a better aesthetic appearance for a slightly damaged tooth the owner might want to look more regular. In the case of teeth grinding, a porcelain crown can bring back some of the lengths of your teeth that have been lost due to grinding your teeth.

To put a crown or not?

It is impossible to answer unequivocally – every case is different. Modern filling materials allow you to avoid a crown, but you should not completely abandon dentures. If the case is neglected and the tooth is destroyed to the ground, you may even need to change its position – you can’t do without a crown. The same applies to the lateral teeth, which have a high chewing load.

A crown came off, what should I do? Can it be glued back on?

Your crown came off? No big deal! The main thing is to save it for later fixation. Do not eat solid food and urgently visit our clinic. The doctor will clean the crown and the surface of the tooth from the remnants of cement, on which the crown was previously fixed, and re-attach it with a special cement.

What should I do if I break my tooth?

Breaking a tooth can be a scary experience, but it is important to stay calm and take appropriate action. Depending on the severity of the injury, there are different steps you can take to ensure the best possible outcome. In this essay, we will explore what you should do if you break your tooth, including assessing the injury seeking emergency care if necessary and scheduling a non-emergency dental appointment.


If you break your tooth, the first step is to assess the severity of the injury. If the tooth is chipped or has a minor fracture, it may be possible to smooth the rough edges with a nail file and schedule a non-emergency dental appointment. If the tooth is not causing any pain or sensitivity, it is likely that the injury is not severe and can be treated with a simple repair.

What if I crack my tooth?

A cracked tooth is a common dental problem that can happen due to various reasons such as eating hard foods, trauma, or cavities. It can cause discomfort and pain, and if left untreated, it can lead to further dental problems. In this essay, we will discuss what to do if you crack your tooth and how to prevent further damage.


If you crack your tooth, the first thing you should do is schedule an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible. Delaying treatment can cause further damage to the tooth and lead to more extensive and expensive procedures. The dentist will examine the tooth and determine the severity of the crack. If the crack is minor, the dentist may recommend a filling to restore the tooth’s structure. However, if the crack is severe and extends to the root, the dentist may recommend a root canal or extraction.

How often should I get a Dental Clean?

We like to say “Prevention is better than a cure” and professional cleaning is a preventative measure for many oral health problems.

It is recommended that you visit the Dentist a minimum of 2 times a year. According to the Dental Association of Australia, “dentists recommend a routine dental check-up every 6 months, but a cookie-cutter approach does not necessarily work for everyone.” We recommend a professional clean every 6 months for most people, but others with a high risk of gum disease or tooth decay may need to visit the dentist every 3 months.

How much does a checkup cost? Are checkups important?

Smiles Unlimited offers complimentary checkups during weekdays. We are more than happy to assess your oral health for free because your smile is our passion. This will allow us to determine whether your mouth is healthy or if there are any issues we can address in later visits. Hence, checkups are important as they can help see if you’re healthy!

    If the filling has become dark or stained around the perimeter, should it be replaced?

    It’s a must. The filling not only restores the tooth but also protects it from further damage. If it has changed color, it means that there are microcracks in it, and the seal is broken. Microorganisms responsible for cavities can get into the gaps, so you need to replace the filling as soon as possible.

    Why re-treat "non-vital" teeth if they don't hurt?

    There is a very high chance of exacerbation, so these teeth need to be checked regularly. If you change clinics, your new doctor will be forced to take responsibility for someone else’s shoddy work. No one wants that, so he or she will try to re-treat the tooth.

    Why do I need dentures?

    Dentures are inserted if the chewing efficiency has decreased because food is not chewed well and this has a negative effect on the stomach. A second reason is jaw deformities, which appear, for example, due to the space left vacant after a tooth extraction, resulting in a movement of the tooth row. Dentures also help to restore a smooth, attractive smile.

    Can I get my teeth treated during pregnancy?

    It is better to have your teeth treated before you become pregnant, but if you have a problem that needs to be treated urgently, you should not delay. There are some drugs that pregnant women can use without any problems. The only procedures that you should refrain from are X-rays, major surgery, and some others that any dentist will tell you about. You should visit your dentist once every trimester during pregnancy.

    Can I have my teeth whitened?

    Of course, you can. It does not cause any damage to the teeth, the dental tissue remains in its original form. If you are still thinking about a gentle whitening system, consult your dentist. Your dentist will find the most appropriate system for your teeth.

    What are professional teeth whitening?

    These are procedures designed to lighten the natural color of the patient’s teeth. Teeth are whitened by several shades, from 4 to 8. DMC Tour Dental will choose an individual course of whitening according to the condition of your teeth, using a variety of methods. Procedures will be performed either in the clinic or at home, in which case the doctor will monitor the process during your appointment.

    Why Do I Need Dental X-Rays?

    Your dentist should take a full set of dental X-rays early into the doctor-patient relationship. X-rays help your doctor monitor any changes that could be happening in your teeth between appointments. Most adult patients have bitewing X-rays every year. Our clinic provides in-house X-Rays with our X-Ray machine. This means you do not have to go to another X-Ray clinic. We can take the X-Ray during your first consultation visit. 

    A filling fell out of a tooth, what to do before the doctor's appointment?

    It is advisable to refrain from eating solid food. Try not to chew on the side where the filling has fallen out. After eating, you should rinse your mouth well with water and be sure to brush your teeth.

    A tooth under a filling hurts. Why does it hurt and what to do?

    Pain under the filling can be caused by the occurrence of secondary caries under the filling, a violation of the seal of the filling to the walls of the tooth, and an inflammatory process in the nerve of the tooth. It all depends on how long ago the tooth was treated, what was the initial diagnosis, what treatment was performed, etc., etc.

    I have a yellow and black plaque on my teeth. How can I get rid of it? Can professional cleaning help?

    Once every 6 months we recommend having your teeth professionally cleaned. For this purpose, the clinic uses the Cavitron device. The magnetostrictive method of work is more comfortable and safer for the patient. In addition, after the removal of dental coverings, teeth are whitened by several tonnes.

    Teeth became sensitive, what to do? How can I relieve tooth sensitivity if it hurts from hot and cold?

    Tooth sensitivity can occur when there are microcracks in the teeth, wedge-shaped defects, abnormal tooth abrasion, and denudation of dentin tissues. In all cases of discomfort and pain, you need to be examined urgently and get professional advice from your dentist.

    How do I get used to dentures faster?

    The average time to get used to dentures is thirty days. This is the physiological norm, the process can only be accelerated due to your characteristics. If you feel discomfort, you should make an appointment with a dentist or orthopedist to determine the cause and eliminate it.

    Broken anterior tooth at the root. How can it be repaired? How do I get my front teeth fixed?

    With this type of injury, it is not possible to restore the tooth with a restoration. Initially, a dentist will carefully examine your tooth. An appropriate radiological examination and endodontic treatment will be performed. Subsequently, the tooth will be prepared and a core builder will be placed. After that, a crown will be placed.

    Why does my mouth feel dry?

    A dry mouth can be a symptom of many different problems and can happen as you get older. Quite often it is a side effect of medication – especially heart, blood pressure, and depression tablets.

    If you have a dry mouth, this can be very uncomfortable and it can make eating certain foods very difficult.

    Many prescription medicines can cause a dry mouth, if you are taking any regular medication from your doctor, it may be worth discussing these symptoms with him to see if there is an alternative that does not have the same side effects.

    If you think that you are suffering from a dry mouth, you should discuss this with our dental team. It may just be that you are dehydrated but it may be telling of a bigger problem. We may recommend one of the many products that are available over the counter to help to alleviate this problem or turn you to your GP if there is a greater health issue.

    I Have Sensitive Teeth. How Do I Fix This?

    You can try using a toothpaste specifically designed for sensitive teeth such as Sensodyne.

    Rub a little toothpaste into the sensitive area when going to bed as it helps protect the surface.

    You should try to avoid strongly acidic foods or drinks and wait at least an hour after eating before brushing as this could cause even more sensitivity. Grinding your teeth can also increase sensitivity and a mouth guard may be necessary.

    If the pain continues, speak to our dental team and they may be able to offer further care to reduce your symptoms. Several things can cause sensitivity and our dental team will be able to identify these and advise the correct care.

    How Do I Practice Good Oral Hygiene at Home?

    Aside from the obvious – brush twice a day for 2-3 mins each time– here are some steps you can take for great dental well-being.

    • Floss daily
    • Use mouthwash daily
    • Use products that contain fluoride
    • Eat a balanced diet of fruits and vegetables while limiting your intake of high-sugar snacks
    • Drink plenty of water
    • Avoid tobacco

    If you still have questions – and we hope you do – please do not hesitate to call us!

    Why remove plaque or tartar?

    This can harm aesthetics, and it is often gum and plaque that cause bad breath. As tartar spreads, it irritates the gum, causing it to become inflamed and can lead to periodontal disease. In addition, the more bacteria, the greater the chance of tooth decay. Even healthy teeth can be lost this way.

    Are there any restrictions after professional teeth cleaning?

    There are no special requirements, the main thing is to follow all the instructions of the dentist. It also makes sense to avoid the use of colorful foods and tobacco products.

    Can I get an implant right after a tooth extraction?

    Yes, it is possible, but only if there is enough bone to fix the implant so that it is immobile. However, if there is a cyst or inflammation due to an extracted tooth, you should not place it right away.

    What is the warranty on the implant that is placed?

    It all depends on the manufacturer. Usually, the warranty is either indefinite or covers 10-15 years. It’s the same with crown warranties, but you also have to consider the material they are made of. If the warranty is open-ended, the crowns are made of zirconium dioxide.

    As for the medical services, the guarantee is given by the clinic itself. This point is specified in the contract. Reimplantation can be done either free of charge or at full price – it all depends on the policy of the medical facility.

    A crown came off, what should I do? Can it be glued back on?

    Your crown came off? No big deal! The main thing is to save it for later fixation. Do not eat solid food and urgently visit our clinic. The doctor will clean the crown and the surface of the tooth from the remnants of cement, on which the crown was previously fixed, and re-attach it with a special cement.

    Which is better - implants or dentures? Bridge or implant?

    Prosthodontics is the process of replacing dental defects. Implants are one of the options for replacing dental defects because there are implant prosthetics. Therefore, we recommend that you make an appointment with a dental surgeon and an orthopedic dentist to determine which type of denture is best suited for your clinical situation. Depending on your diagnosis, a treatment plan will be chosen, including the implant system and type of prosthetics. We always practice an individual approach to our patients.

    How are implants done? How is a tooth implant fixed during placement?

    Implantation is a process that consists of several stages:

    The first stage is surgical when a hole is prepared in the bone tissue for placing the implant and the implant itself is placed.

    The second stage is surgical when two months after the implantation, a gum former is placed.

    The implant is made of titanium or titanium and zirconium. It has a special “thread” through which it is attached to the bone tissue.

    How long do dental implants take to take root?

    After the implant is placed, the bone tissue fuses with the artificial root (the root part of the implant), firmly anchoring it in the bone. In medicine, this process is called “osseointegration”. How long does it last? On average, two to six months. The individual conditions of the patient’s body, such as pre-existing or previous diseases, lifestyle, hygiene and, last but not least, the make of the implant, must always be taken into consideration.

    Two months after implantation, a gum former is placed, and after another two months, we can place the crown, “loading” the implant. Crowns on Straumann SLActive implants can also be placed after 3-4 weeks. At the same time, each case has to be treated individually.

    Do I have to have my wisdom tooth removed? If a wisdom tooth becomes inflamed, what are the consequences if it is not removed?

    There are several indications for the extraction of a wisdom tooth:

    A wisdom tooth that has not erupted is not correctly positioned in the jaw, traumatizing neighboring teeth and soft tissues.

    Extensive decay with considerable damage to the crown

    Installation of a bracket system. Sometimes only by removing the wisdom tooth, the other teeth can be moved properly.

    Pulpitis, periodontitis

    Most often, problems start during the teething period, which is associated with high body temperature, swelling, or edema. More detailed information in each case will always be provided by the dentist at the consultation. After that, a decision will be made about the dental treatment.


    A wisdom tooth is cutting and my gums are hurting. How to relieve the pain and make it easier to erupt?

    The inflammatory process in the gum at the time of teething can be relieved by medication, in the form of oral baths with antiseptic drugs (Chlorhexidine, Rotokan, Decoction of Camomile, Tebodont) in combination with the use of drugs in the form of gel (Mitragil gel dental, Solcoseryl gel dental, Tebodont gel). There is also a surgical method of laser excision of the overhanging gum canopy, which is much faster and is successfully used in our clinic. This or that method can be prescribed to you by a dental surgeon during the consultation because self-treatment can be dangerous to your health.

    Tooth cyst - what does it look like and how is it treated? How is a tooth cyst removed?

    The word “cyst” comes from the Greek word (cystitis), which means bubble – a cavity filled most often with liquid or mushy contents (dead cells, bacteria, etc.). This condition can be treated conservatively with endodontic treatment, or surgically by removing the cyst with part of the tooth root. Sometimes, unfortunately, the tooth may also need to be extracted. Only a dentist-surgeon together with a dentist-therapist will be able to give you the right diagnosis and possible treatment at the consultation.

    Bite correction without braces - is it possible? How can I get my adult teeth straightened without braces?

    Bite correction without braces is possible. It all depends on your clinical situation. After consulting with a dentist – orthodontist, as well as other specialists, studying X-rays, and deciphering models, we will choose an individual treatment plan for you. You may be offered a specific bracket system, removable appliances, mouthguards, or liners. Adult dental alignment is not fundamentally different from the treatment of other patients. However, it is necessary to keep in mind the age-related changes, and individual features of the body and strictly follow the doctor’s recommendations.

    The gap between the front teeth: how to remove it?

    The medical term for the gap between your front teeth is diastema.

    You don’t have to worry about it. We can easily remove it with a photopolymer restoration or orthodontic treatment. In addition, we can offer you the placement of veneers or lumineers in the problem area.

    The choice of treatment depends on the complexity and classification of the diastema.

    What should I do if my tooth is blackened after a nerve extraction? How to whiten a dead tooth?

    Endodontic treatment of a tooth consists of the removal of the neurovascular bundle. After a certain amount of time, the dentin can start to darken. We practice endodontic whitening, which consists of placing a whitening agent inside the tooth cavity. If you do not achieve the desired positive result, we can offer you to cover the tooth with a ceramic lining.

    My gums are loose and the necks of my teeth are exposed. What can I do? How can I strengthen my gums and teeth?

    We recommend that you make an appointment with a periodontist as soon as possible to get a more detailed medical history and treatment. To improve the condition of your gums and teeth, follow the rules of oral hygiene – namely, brush your teeth in the morning and evening, use floss (dental floss), every six months to come for a preventive check-up with your dentist. The doctor will individually choose a treatment plan for you. Remember that self-treatment can be dangerous to your health.

    How are decayed teeth treated in young children? What is anesthetized and filled?

    It all depends on the nature of the course and depth of the caries lesion. If the caries process has severely damaged the integrity of the dental tissue, the infected tissue is cleaned and removed under the supervision of a dental marker and the defect is replaced by a photopolymer filling or glass ionomer cement according to the indication for the particular clinical case. Anesthesia is administered according to the age indication and in the presence of allergic tests for anesthetics in children. The pediatric dentist will tell you all of this at the consultation and adaptation visit.

    My gums hurt during pregnancy - they are inflamed and bleeding. How to treat them?

    This can happen with hormonal changes. It is recommended to consult a dentist for a more correct selection of medications depending on the age of the pregnancy.

    How do I relieve a toothache when I'm pregnant? What can I take?

    It all depends on how far along you are in your pregnancy, it’s best to consult with your supervising gynecologist, and your dentist by phone before using an anesthetic.

    What can nursing mothers do for toothache?

    While breastfeeding, breastfeeding moms are generally allowed any type of dental care. The only thing your dentist may recommend is that you do not breastfeed your baby for 4 hours after the anesthesia and that you do not express your milk.

    How do I pull out a baby's baby tooth at home? Can it be done?

    It is not recommended to perform this procedure at home, because there are always risks of infection, or unsuccessful extraction when part of the roots or fragments of the tooth is left in the bone tissue, to the trauma of the permanent tooth bud. At our dentistry, we will do the extraction professionally and painlessly.

    A piece of tooth broke off, what to do?

    No need to worry. We will perfectly restore the tooth with a photopolymer restoration. The clinic uses only advanced, high-quality materials from foreign manufacturers. In some cases, if you have a part of the tooth, it is possible to make a restoration using the native tooth tissue. Do not rush to throw away a chipped piece of tooth.

    Badly hurt my tooth. How can the pain be relieved? Can I at least reduce it to make it last until my visit to the dentist?

    It is possible to prevent pain in the tooth with any analgesic that you are allowed to take (Nurofen, Ibuprofen, Nimesil, Ibuprom, Ketanov). The dosage should follow the manufacturer’s instructions. It is also advisable to make an appointment with a dentist as soon as possible, as there are a huge number of reasons that cause pain in the tooth. Untimely treatment can lead to certain complications.

    The child has a badly painful milk tooth. How to relieve the pain?

    Before taking any medicine, we recommend that you ask your pediatrician for advice. He will advise you about the age of doses and personal intolerance to the drug. If this is not possible, you can give your child Ibuprofen syrup for children.

    How do I get braces on my teeth?

    Braces placement is a painless procedure. Initially, we perform professional oral hygiene – removal of dental plaque. Immediately during the placement of braces, the doctor isolates the teeth from saliva as much as possible and dries the surfaces of the teeth with air to remove any residual moisture. The bracket system is placed on a special luting material.
