Dental Bridge


Dental Bridge Treatment History

Dental prosthetics have been known since BC.

  • During the excavations of the ancient city of Sidon (III-IV centuries BC), artificial teeth were also found in the woman's coffin, which could be called the prototype of modern bridges. Fastening of artificial teeth with gold wire, as well as threads from other materials, are among the earliest methods of fixing prostheses.
  • In the tombs of the Etruscans (IX-VI centuries BC), more modern gold prostheses were found, reinforced with gold rings or stripes. In the Roman Laws of the Twelve Tables (5th century BC), there are indications of the use of gold wire for splinting.
  • The 11th century Arab physician Abulkasem (936-1013) rightly assessed dental prosthetics as a medical science.
  • Giovani Arkone (early 15th century) filled cavities with sheet gold.
  • Ambroise Paré (1517-1590, Paris) is a 16th century surgeon - he replaced missing teeth with artificial ones made of bovine or ivory, reinforcing them with gold wire. He made the first attempt to replace the defects of the hard palate with an obturator.
  • In 1728 - Pierre Fauchard's guide to dentistry "Dental surgery or a treatise on teeth" was published. He was responsible for the development of a method for attaching complete removable dentures with springs, he improved the palatal obturator by connecting it to the prosthesis.

So, what is Dental Bridge?


  • A dental bridge is a construction of two crowns, between which artificial teeth are located.
  • Dental bridges are non-removable prosthetics, that is, they cannot be removed on their own, without the help of a doctor. The prostheses are fixed on the abutment teeth, replacing the missing units in the middle part.
  • The main design details are artificial teeth - more precisely, their crown parts - and retainers, by means of which the dental bridge is securely attached in the oral cavity.
  • Fixing attachments of the bridge can be represented directly by dental crowns, put on the abutment teeth, inlays and clasps - iron brackets. In some cases, the design is supplemented with an element that mimics the gum tissue.

There are 3 types of bridge connections:

  • washing (temporal). There is a slight gap between the dental bridge and the gums, which is not conspicuous, but greatly facilitates cleaning. In addition, food debris does not get stuck under the denture;
  • tangent. The prosthesis touches the gums, as if passing along one tangent line. This type of dental bridge is relevant in the smile zone, since it does not interfere with normal conversation, is available for cleaning with a toothbrush and looks good externally;
  • saddle. The bridge is very tight to the gums.

Types of dental bridges:

Dental bridges are classified according to material and manufacturing technology. The raw materials for bridges can be:

  • metal;
  • cermets;
  • ceramics;
  • zirconium dioxide;
  • polymers.

Depending on the manufacturing technology, dental bridges are classified into the following types:

  • adhesive, which are mainly used for prosthetics of 1 dental unit. This type of bridge has a fiberglass arch frame with a crown located on it. The adhesive structure is placed on the halves or even quarters of the crowns and fixed to the abutment teeth with special glue;
  • classic, when the supporting units are completely covered with crowns.

Dental Bridges for:

  • Those, who wants to restore the appearance and function of their dentures.
  • Those with strong, healthy teeth on either side of the gap between your teeth.

Dental Bridges Duration:

  • Dental bridges are a two-step procedure that takes two days.
  • Each lesson lasts from an hour to an hour and a half.

Dental Bridges Recovery Timeline:

  • Any minor pain caused by the placement of the bridge should disappear after a few days.

Possible risks for Dental Bridge:

  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Allergic reaction to anesthetic or restorative material
  • Increased risk of decay of abutment teeth
  • Pulp damage or death from tooth loss

Our medical consultants will take care of you during 1 year after the surgery.

Dental Bridge Healing Process

The healing process will not take a long time.

Since the procedure is performed under local anaesthesia, you will not feel any pain. You may experience some sensitivity in the mouth area for the first few days after the new bridge is placed. However, this can be easily handled with conventional painkillers and will disappear within a very short time.

Please do not eat anything until the local anaesthesia has completely worn off. Otherwise, you run the risk of biting yourself.

Oral hygiene and regular brushing is very important. Take care of your teeth as usually. You should use dental floss to remove all food particles.

Dental bridge FAQ


In Turkey, salary and living costs are lower than in Europe, and the government subsidizes the health sector. Therefore, dental treatment in Turkey can be done at a much lower cost without sacrificing quality and standard.

With over 1.5 million medical tourists per year, Turkey is one of the three world leaders in health tourism. The healthcare system in Turkey is strictly monitored and regulated to ensure the best quality and highest standard of treatments. Experienced doctors together with a professional team take care of the patients in a professional and competent way. It is safe to undergo dental treatment in Turkey.

You save money and costs, benefit from international quality and avoid long waiting times. In Turkey, you get the appointment for your dental treatment at short notice, in Germany you have to wait weeks. Our contract clinics work closely with laboratories and dental technicians, some of them have their own laboratories. Thus, the production of dental bridges in just a few days is no problem. The short flight time from Europe is another advantage.

Turkey is one of the best countries for dental treatment. On the list of top ten dental tourism countries, Turkey ranks fourth after Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic. With approximately 86 million population, Turkey ranks 17th in the world in terms of population. Doctors have a lot of practical experience compared to other countries, which makes them competent professionals.

Our clinics offer the comfort of a 5-star, high-class hotel. The medical equipment meets international standards of the highest level. Across Turkey, 600 clinics have been awarded the coveted JCI certificate, which attests to safe and effective treatment methods, structured working methods and comfortable conditions.

Of course, you can and should even combine the pleasant with the useful! Even while you are waiting for your new bridge, explore Istanbul . After your treatment is finished, continue your sightseeing without any worries.

Since the procedure is performed under local anaesthesia, you will not feel any pain. You may experience some sensitivity in the mouth area for the first few days after the new bridge is placed. However, this can be easily handled with conventional painkillers.

The durability of a dental bridge depends primarily on the material used. Oral hygiene and regular brushing and flossing also have an effect. As a rule, it can be estimated that bridges will last for at least 10 years on average.

Dental bridges are used to close a gap between two healthy teeth. To ensure the stability of the dental bridge, one missing tooth, at most two, is usually bridged over. If more teeth are missing, implants are a good option. The insertion of a bridge prevents the surrounding teeth from

The healthy teeth to the right and left of the gap that support the bridge are called abutment teeth. These teeth are crowned and in their middle is a false tooth, that fills the gap.

Dental bridges can be made of ceramics and zirconium, materials containing precious metals such as gold, or non-precious metal alloys such as chromium and cobalt. Today, mainly ceramic crowns are used. These can be precisely matched to the colour of the teeth using a special technique.

Temporary bridges are used to protect teeth from bacteria and to maintain chewing function and the visual appearance of the dentition. Usually, temporary bridges are made of plastic. Temporary bridges are nowhere near as durable as the final bridge and do not withstand the same pressure. Since your dental bridge will be ready within one day, you will not have any problems with the temporary bridge.

Traditional fixed bridges are used to bridge a gap between two healthy teeth. If the gap to be bridged is at the end of the row of teeth and only the last tooth in the row can be used as the bridge abutment, these are called cantilever bridges. Adhesive bridges, also known as Maryland bridges, are cemented to the teeth that serve as the bridge abutment. For this purpose, only the enamel surface on the back of the abutment is slightly acid etched so that the bridge can be adhered. Adhesive bridges are mainly used to replace missing front teeth.

Please do not eat anything until the local anaesthesia has completely worn off. Otherwise, you run the risk of biting yourself.

Are you curious about how your teeth look with your new bridge? Just take a look in the mirror! The result is IMMEDIATELY visible! You will leave our clinic with the perfectly aesthetic teeth you have always dreamed of!

Your dental bridge does not require any specific aftercare. Some sensitivity may occur in the mouth area during the first few days after treatment.

Your treating doctor will discuss any details with you personally.
