Chamber Of Dentists President Dt. in Antalya Kepez, reacting to the claims that “the Implant (root of the tooth) makes cancer and bone resorption” in some publications in recent days, said: “the titanium implant is tissue friendly. It doesn’t do cancer or bone resorption,” he said.

Dt, in a statement, said that implant treatment has been used in Turkey for a long time, saying that he had not heard of a ‘fake implant’. “Implants are made of titanium.

There have been no cases of titanium-related cancer. Titanium is a metal that is used extensively not only in implants, but also in orthopedics. It is a tissue-friendly substance. In these subjects, the necessary information can be obtained from the jaw surgery chairs in the faculties of Dentistry. We and our chamber members use products that have a barcode on them, which are licensed from the Turkey Ministry of Health, which have an import permit or a domestic production permit, which have been inspected,” he said.


In seminars, conferences and scientific meetings organized as a room, dental colleagues are given the necessary training, dentists are constantly renewing themselves, Turkey Medicals said.:

Dentist offices Antalya, polyclinics and Oral Dental Health Centers are regularly inspected by the Turkish Ministry of Health. Protocol books related to the procedures performed are examined, the input and output of the materials we use in oral dental health are looked at. Our patients who will have implants do not need to be alarmed.

Don’t let them think I’ll get cancer. Keep them away from places called fake dentists. As a room, we are behind this to the end. A problem that will occur in the natural tooth of a patient with a bone problem can also occur around the implant. ‘Implant causes bone resorption’ rhetoric is also not true. I also condemn people who say ‘implant makes cancer’ without relying on scientific reasons.”
