Why are dental implants cheaper in Turkey?
Dental implants in Turkey are cheaper for several reasons, mainly related to the Turkish economy. These facilities are only cheap for international citizens who visit Turkey with stronger currencies and the Turkish Lira. They were extremely expensive for Turkish patients.
There are 5 factors that influence the price and make it affordable. These are:
- Importance of medical tourism
- High competition
- Cost of living
- Currency exchange
- Government aids
If you come from countries with euros, dollars or pounds, the exchange rate will be extremely in your favor. For this, the prices offered by the clinics will seem extremely cheap to you while they will not be cheap for people with hard currencies.
Medical tourism in Turkey every year brings a high number of patients coming to Turkey – and Istanbul – to get a dental implant. This high number of cases makes the market highly competitive and highly profitable. Also, because of the high quantity of orders, it is possible to get and produce dental top-grade materials for a fraction of the price.
In addition, the government noticed how profitable and beneficial the medical tourism sector is and for Turkey. So, the Turkish government sets aids for the private health sector with lower taxes and incentives. This has a strong influence on the prices, especially for low taxes.
