A few words about missing teeth solutions

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, you certainly have a variety of options to choose from.

Should you go with dentures?
How about dental implants?
What about a bridge?

As you can see, your options can quickly become overwhelming, especially when you consider the different types of dentures, dental implants, bridges, and more.

It’s confusing. What should you do?

While there isn’t necessarily a procedure that is perfect for everyone, there is one procedure that is paving the way for tooth replacement. Replacing all of your teeth with dentures or dental implants used to be a hassle, but that struggle is a thing of the past thanks to the Prettau Full Mouth Dental Implant Bridge.


What is the Prettau Implant Bridge?

If other missing teeth solutions such as dentures or traditional dental implants have not given you the results you desire (or you’re skeptical about them in the first place), then the Prettau implant bridge may be exactly what you are looking for.

Here are a few facts and benefits regarding the Prettau bridge:

  • The Prettau dental bridge is anchored to your jawbone using dental implants, which serve as an artificial tooth root that is just as strong (if not stronger) than your natural tooth roots.
  • The Prettau bridge is made of the strongest dental-grade material in modern restorative dentistry— Zirconia. The main benefits— Zirconia is tooth-colored (so it is indistinguishable from natural teeth), and will not crack, chip, or break unless exposed to significant dental trauma.
  • The Prettau dental implant bridge is biocompatible with the human body. In layman’s terms, this means you do not have to worry about allergic reactions that often occur when using metal components for tooth replacement.

The bottom line is this— the Prettau dental implant bridge is one of the most significant advancements in implant dentistry in the last 20 years. It can restore your smile, even if you’ve experienced failed dental work in the past.


How is it Different from Dental Implants?

If you’ve researched options to replace missing teeth, you’ve likely come across traditional dental implants; they’ve helped a lot of patients achieve their goals.

However, with the emergence of the Prettau procedure, traditional dental implants with crowns have become somewhat outdated.

To use a metaphor, a traditional implants procedure is equivalent to your average cell phone from 2010, while in the meantime, the Prettau procedure is equivalent to the best smartphones of today.

It’s not that there is anything wrong, per se, with traditional implants with crowns; it’s just that the Prettau full mouth bridge works better for more patients and has a higher success rate.


How is the Prettau Implant Bridge Different from Dentures?

Dentures are usually the lowest cost option to replace missing teeth in the short term. However, the problem with dentures— they do not hold up well over time, and can actually end up costing much more money over the long haul.

Unlike dentures, the Prettau implant bridge is made out of the finest dental-grade Zirconia, and also uses dental implants attached to your jawbone in order to anchor the bridge. Dentures are more or less placed in your mouth with little to no “anchoring,” which means patients often report their dentures shifting or moving around.

In fact, many denture wearers complain of gum irritation, slipping dentures, the inability to eat some of their favorite foods, and much more.

If you are on a budget and your primary concern is aesthetics, a denture might work for you in the short term. However, long term, the functionality is quite poor and does not come close to what you get with dental implants and the Prettau bridge.


What is the Cost?

We would love to give you a price, but the reality is there are so many variables that go into dental implant treatment. Each case is truly unique and it would be irresponsible for us to “throw out a number.”
