The Prettau Implant Bridge Procedure By Dr. Degel on July 10, 2013

Prettau Implant Bridge ProcedureWhen you are missing a tooth or perhaps multiple teeth, you know that it can have a major impact on the overall appearance of your smile. But did you know that it can also affect your dental health? Gum recession, bone loss, and tooth misalignment can all occur simply from the loss of one tooth.

That is why it's important to consider all of your options for cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry. One particularly helpful treatment option to keep in mind is the Prettau Implant Bridge. Let's take a few moments to look into the procedure right now.

About the Prettau Implant Bridge

The Prettau Implant Bridge is a major step forward in restorative dentistry. It is a bridge intended to be supported by dental implants. The Prettau Implant Bridge is made of Zirconia rather than other dental composites and acrylic materials, meaning that there is greater durability and enhanced appearance compared to other dental bridge options. Patients will not have to worry about staining, chipping, or toxicity from materials.

Best Candidates for the Prettau Implant Bridge

Ideal candidates for the Prettai Implant Bridge are people who are missing a tooth or multiple teeth and have sufficient bone and gum tissue remaining in the area of the tooth gap. Since there is oral surgery involved, it's important that the patient be in good health overall and not suffer from any serious conditions that would render them unfit for care. These matters can be discussed in more detail with your dentists.

The Prettau Implant Bridge Procedure

Using the latest in CAD CAM technology, the dental bridge will be custom designed exactly for the patient's mouth, with each tooth carefully modeled so that it can be precisely milled and provide excellent functionality when the completed bridge is ready. Patients will undergo oral surgery in order to get dental implants placed. We will carefully scan the hard and soft tissues in the mouth to ensure optimal placement of the dental implants.

What follows will be a healing period in which the dental implants are allowed to fuse with the bone and gum tissue, which means they will be able to function just as if they were natural tooth roots.

What to Expect After the Initial Surgical Procedure

In the days and weeks after the oral surgery, you may experience some discomfort and sensitivity in the area of the dental implants. This is normal and will dissipate with time.

As you heal and your dental implants fuse with your jawbone and gums, you will be in contact with our dental care center for monitoring and follow-up visits. When the healing period is complete, you will then be able to return to our practice to have the customized Prettau Dental Bridge placed.
