The absence of one or more teeth is a significant functional, phonetic and aesthetic handicap. To solve this problem, there are several solutions, including the installation of a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a dental treatment that forms a bridge between several teeth, generally two. It can replace one or two missing teeth, by resting on the adjacent teeth (abutment teeth), sometimes devitalized. It can be made of metal, ceramic-metallic or entirely ceramic.

Who Is This For?

Healthy individuals who are missing multiple teeth and have sufficient healthy tooth structure

Treatment Duration

60-90 minutes per visit (treatment usually takes at least two visits)

Potential Risks & Side Effects

  • Bridge failure
  • Infections
  • Chewing problems
  • Tooth decay

Recovery Time

The recovery time of a dental bridge is very short. Minor pain or mild tenderness usually goes away within a few days. You will easily get used to eating with your new dental bridge in a short time.

Success Rate: 95%

Alternative Treatments

  • Dental Implant

How Does it Work?

There are mainly 4 types of dental bridges:

  • Conventional Bridge: Used to replace one or two teeth, this bridge is placed after grinding or devitalization of the abutment teeth (with or without devitalization).
  • Resin-Bonded Bridge: It is used when there is only one tooth to replace. Unlike a conventional dental bridge, its installation does not require devitalization or volume reduction in the abutment teeth. It is simply fixed with cement on the inner edge of the adjacent teeth.
  • The Implant Bridge: This type of bridge is used when there are no teeth around which can serve as abutments. The dentist then places implants at the locations of missing abutment teeth before the placement of the bridge.
  • The Dental Bridge of Several Teeth: If it is necessary to devitalize and crown teeth that are adjacent to edentulous teeth or to cut them before placing the bridge, the dentist can recommend his patient the installation of this type of bridge. This type of bridge is a more economical and more functional solution than a bridge over implants.

What Does a Dental Bridge Involve?

1.         Consultation for Dental Bridge

Your treatment process begins with an online consultation. Our experts listen to your complaints, your health story, and your expectations; They will inform you about whether you need a dental bridge or other dental treatments. It is important to share all your health information that may be useful at this stage. If available, please share your diagnosis and treatment process documents, imaging results and information about your current health status during this online consultation.

2.         Planning Your Trip and Choosing the Clinic

After your first evaluation, we offer a list of clinics that meet the criteria you provide us. You will then examine this list and decide on one of them. Depending on your choice, we move on to the next step: planning your trip and the entire dental bridge treatment process.

3.         Final Consultation with Your Dentist

When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your dentist. Everything about your dental bridge treatment will be discussed and decided during this consultation. The dentist will try to understand your expectations and concerns better and also make you understand what you should expect from your treatment with its potential risks or complications. Your doctor will explain the whole process clearly and try to simulate it as much as possible, in order you to feel well-prepared.

4.         Medical Examinations

Before the dental bridge treatment begins, your dentist will conduct a computer-based diagnosis and blood tests to make sure that you are in acceptable health status for the process. Every patient is required to undergo preliminary examinations to ensure that nothing can hinder the success of the procedure and if any risk obtained, doctors will try to eliminate them first.

5.         Treatment

Dental bridge treatment usually consists of two dentist visits.

  •  First Visit:  Your dentist shapes your anchor teeth or implants to get them ready for the crowns that will hold the bridge in place. Then the molds of your teeth are sent to a dental laboratory to make the bridge. This is a waiting period which may take about a week or longer.
  • Second Visit: Your dentist places and adjusts the bridge received from the laboratory and cements it into place after making sure it fits comfortably.
  • The dental bridge process is completed once the dental cement is applied but after the bridge is placed, you may need some extra visits to make sure if it fits well and adapts to the structures.
  • If you need to undergo a root canal treatment as well, you will have one or more visits to the dentist before beginning the dental bridge process.


What Should I Expect After Dental Bridge Treatment?

  •  You will feel numbness in your mouth for a few hours after your dental bridge procedure due to the effect of local anesthetic.
  • Some tenderness and sensitivity to cold and heat for a few days or weeks after the procedure is also normal and gradually disappear.
  • You should take the medications given by your dentist regularly, follow all his or her instructions, and pay attention to oral hygiene.



Is Dental Bridge Procedure Painful?

Post-operative pain is generally very mild and relieves taking pain medications for a few days.

What to Choose: A Dental Bridge or An Implant?

The dental bridge and the implant are the two treatments frequently used to replace one or more missing teeth. They both have advantages and disadvantages. It is therefore advisable to choose the one that best suits you in consultation with your dentist, but also according to your expectations or desires (time, price, aesthetic, etc.).

Are There Any Contraindications Associated with Dental Bridge?

Generally, the dentist does not use a dental bridge if one of the abutment teeth or neighboring teeth are infected. When a root is too short or the patient suffers from advanced periodontal disease, he or she can also refuse to use abutment teeth which would then be too unstable. Finally, if the missing teeth are too numerous or there are no longer any teeth adjacent to the one you want to replace, it seems difficult to install a bridge. Fortunately, other solutions exist in this condition, such as dental implant.

    I had a wonderful experience booking my dental work with Flymedi. I needed a fair amount of work done and was required to visit twice but luckily the clinic was so hygienic and professional that it was a no-brainer to return. The dentist was great, he explained the procedure very clearly and I knew exactly what was going to happen in each session. The procedure itself was totally painless which was a first for me having had bad experiences with dentists in the past so that was really encouraging. I would highly recommend Flymedi's services as they exceeded my expectations (:

    A very positive outcome, following my decision to pursue in having dental cosmetic surgery/treatment carried out in Turkey. Excellent advisory skills by Flymedi rep Abud. He was professional, well informed, and followed me up with total attention throughout the whole process. Last but not least, I thank Dr Ahmed Kumsan and his team at Infinity Smiles Dental Clinic for their commitment and professionalism. Highly recommended.

    I was considering several different options, however Abud was by far the most committed and helpful of all the agents I'd been in discussions with. Everything was organised for me and I was guided throughout and if I was feeling apprehensive about anything or had any questions Abud was always on hand to answer my questions and give reassurances. I'm so happy with the results of my operation and I was left overwhelmed by how friendly and supportive everyone was throughout. If you're considering using flymedi then I can honestly say you'll be delighted with the service both before during and after your surgery.

    I was having dental problems. One of my colleagues told me about flymedi and how great his experience with them. So I decided to talk to them. They reached out to me right away. Best decision I've ever made. They arranged my treatment with Ilayda Askan. My hotel and transfers from the airport were also arranged. The clinic was the best I've ever seen. Everyone spoke English and they helped me calm down. They were clearly a very experienced team. And the clinic was spotless and for me hygiene is the most important thing when it comes to dental clinics.

I highly recommend her clinic and Ezgi. Professional, friendly, caring and so kind. Price fantastic. I hated the thought of dentists until this experience. Ezgi was so reassuring and kind, made sure I had no pain, and took great care of me. I am extremely happy and thankful for the work. Thank u Ezgi, wishing u health and happiness.
