The Prettau® Bridge is widely regarded as the best dental implant restoration available today. It replaces an entire arch of teeth with a zirconia bridge that looks completely natural, is exceptionally strong, and does not absorb stains or odors. The Prettau® Bridge is only offered by a relatively small number of qualified dental professionals, including Brian Hirschfield, DDS. He can determine if the Prettau® Bridge is right for you during a consultation at his Lakeville, NY, practice.
What is the Prettau® Bridge?
The Prettau® Bridge is a custom-crafted dental implant-supported restoration made of zirconia, offering exceptional strength and aesthetics. It is placed on a series of dental implants to replace the top, bottom, or both arches of teeth. This restoration carries an exceptionally low risk of chipping and other damage, making it a worthwhile investment in your smile. Many patients who experience adverse or allergic reactions to metal have also found the metal-free Prettau® Bridge to be their ideal solution.
The Prettau® Bridge looks natural, and is highly resistant to stains or damage.
Additionally, the Prettau® Bridge is completely customizable to your needs and goals. It is custom-made to fit your jaw, but can also be colored specifically to complement your gums and provide the shade of white you prefer. You can expect your Prettau® Bridge to look completely natural.
Prettau® Bridge Benefits
If you have several damaged, decayed, or missing teeth, the Prettau® Bridge can give you back your smile. In addition to its cosmetic benefits, the Prettau® Bridge can restore your ability to chew, enunciate, and smile with complete confidence. Meanwhile, cleaning your bridge is simple. Just brush and floss as you normally would. Unlike other denture options, Prettau® Bridge does not stain or absorb odors.
The Prettau® Bridge can be a life-changing alternative for patients currently wearing traditional dentures. Without dental implants, missing teeth result in atrophy (shrinkage) of the jaw bone. This is why traditional dentures must be frequently refitted to accommodate changes in jaw shape. The implant-supported Prettau® Bridge, on the other hand, halts these changes. It allows you to stop worrying about your denture, and start enjoying delicious meals, long talks with friends, and smiling for family portraits.
Candidates for the Prettau® Bridge
Patients with several cracked, damaged, or missing teeth and a desire to dramatically restore their smile are likely candidates for the Prettau® Bridge. However, candidates must first be able to receive dental implants. Dental implants require sufficient bone density in the jaw, so if you have waited many years to address missing teeth, you may require a bone graft to create a suitable implant base.
Candidates should understand that both dental implants and premium restorations are widely considered elective procedures, and insurance rarely contributes to their cost. However, Dr. Hirschfield's staff is glad to discuss payment options that can place this advanced solution within your budget.
