Implants and crowns at Medlife Group in Turkey: Yvonne`s story

Treatment: Bridge (12 tooth bridge, 4 implants)
Provider: Medlife Group
Date: Nov 2018

Yvonne will be starting the New Year with a huge smile following treatment with dental implants and crowns at Medlife Group in Izmir, Turkey.

When Yvonne Healy connected with Medlife Group in Izmir, Turkey, she already knew what she wanted done. Whilst still in her home country of Ireland, she provided Medlife's medical consultant with her x-rays and treatment plan, which the consultant immediately passed onto the dentist. Yvonne was extremely keen for the work to start as soon as possible and Medlife's professional team were on hand to help; the consultant was able to get back to Yvonne with the dentist's professional opinion that same day. Yvonne was pleasantly surprised that everything was going so fast and was deeply impressed with Medlife's tailormade hospitality service.

Knowing that an implant operation has two steps, Yvonne chose a date that was suitable for her initial treatment and the Medlife team arranged all the necessary appointments.

First day

On arrival at Adnan Menderes Airport in Izmir, Yvonne was met by a member of the Medlife team and taken directly to the clinic to meet her dentist. Treatment started the same day and the dentist prepared 25 teeth for crowns in a procedure taking 2.5 hours. Following the treatment, Yvonne stayed in Medlife's contracted hotel.

Second day

Yvonne woke early and went to the clinic with a member of the Medlife team. The second stage of the treatment involved fitting the 25 crowns and placing 5 implants. She spent 2.5 hours in the clinic, after which she returned to rest in the hotel once more.

Third day

On the third day, Yvonne saw the dentist for a final check up before she returned to Ireland. The dentist explained what the second visit would entail and provided her with all the necessary medication. He was able to answer all Yvonne's questions, making the process totally clear and stress free.

Last day

On the afternoon of Yvonne's last day in Izmir, the Medlife team picked her up from her hotel and took her to the airport. The goodbye is only temporary, however, as they are looking forward to seeing her in January 2019 for her final treatment. Yvonne will be starting the New Year with a huge smile.
