in Thayer, MO
Too often, people overlook the crucial part their teeth play in their quality of life. However, it becomes painfully apparent that a whole and healthy smile is essential to enjoy your favorite foods, create good impressions on people, and talk clearly and confidently when teeth are lost or seriously damaged due to trauma or decay. While many options are available to replace missing teeth, at Thayer Dental Care, we provide the Prettau® implant bridge in Thayer, MO.
What is the Prettau Implant-Supported Bridge?
Dr. Samir Patel and Dr. Chyrelle Blount at Thayer Dental Care proudly offer the astonishingly lifelike Prettau bridge. The Prettau implant bridge has changed the way we restore missing teeth. It is a better option than dentures because it enables patients to get replacement teeth that feel, look, and function like natural teeth.
We use dental implants, which act as synthetic tooth roots, to support these dental bridges. The bridge is securely held in place because we surgically insert the implants into the gum tissue and jawbone.
Your implant bridge will be custom-made for the best possible comfort and appearance using our cutting-edge imaging technology, combined with unique digital milling and design.
Prettau Bridge Material
In contrast to conventional bridges, the Prettau bridge is specially made of zirconia, a material that has a natural appearance and is renowned for power, stability, and biocompatibility. Zironia, a natural mineral, has been utilized in dental prosthetics for over ten years. Because zirconia is so smooth and solid, it won’t wear down your natural teeth or other restorations.
Zirconia’s non-metallic makeup enables the final restoration to have a stunning, bright natural color. This cutting-edge material can permanently fuse with personalized tints and shades to provide the natural appearance of healthy teeth and gums and resist chips and fractures.
What are the Advantages of the Prettau Bridge
The Prettau implant bridge helps to organically stimulate the jawbone and prevent bone loss and undesired changes in facial structure, in contrast to a conventional denture or partial that rests along the gums. This innovative alternative allows patients to eliminate the drawbacks of traditional poorly fitting dentures.
- No sticky adhesives
- No slippage
- No restricted foods
- No staining
- No loss of bone
- No gum irritation
However, there are more advantages of the Prettau zirconia bridge in terms of functionality, aesthetics, and health, including the following:
- It does not cause allergies in anyone.
- It allows you to eat and speak without worrying about your teeth slipping or hurting.
- Explicitly made to feel and look natural in your mouth.
- It won’t eventually stain, crack, chip, or lose color.
The Prettau Bridge Process
Dr. Patel or Dr. Blount will arrange a consultation with you before you receive your bridge to evaluate the proper positioning of any required dental implants and bone grafting. We will submit your measurements and impressions to a lab while your jaw and gums are healing around the implant posts. Prettau zirconia will be specially crafted into your bridge. You will need to visit Thayer Dental Care after the bridge is ready and your gums and jaw have completely recovered so we can attach the bridge to the implant posts.
