Prettau® Implant Bridges

Change your life in one day with the Prettau® Implant Bridge!

Missing teeth can cause many problems. For one, there are the obvious aesthetic issues related to tooth loss, making people feel self-conscious to speak, smile, and laugh, even around people that they’ve known for years. In addition, there are the various health and wellness problems associated with missing teeth, including problems chewing, loss of bone density in the jaw, and gum recession. That’s why many people are replacing missing teeth with the Prettau® Implant Bridge.


While initially it seems less expensive to get a traditional denture, implant supported bridges pay off tremendously in the long run. The dental implants provide anchored chewing support and prevent bone and gum loss, which results in a longer lasting smile, preserved oral health, and less long-term payments for replacement and restoration procedures. Implant supported dental bridges preserve your bones and gums so that you can continue smiling and chewing for years to come.

About the Prettau Implant Bridge

The Prettau Implant Bridge is a major step forward in restorative dentistry. These dental bridges are supported by dental implants, which are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone and gum tissue, allowing for incredibly secure hold. The artificial teeth are made from zirconia, which is an incredibly sturdy and natural-looking material.

Many of our patients come to see us after pouring time, money, and energy into treatments with questionable long term prognosis.  If you suffer from broken crowns, defective bridges, failing root canals, questionable periodontal health, loose or ill fitting dentures, the Prettau Implant Bridge may be ideal for you.  Those who have had success with this treatment have gone from hiding toothless smiles, struggling through painful meals, and avoiding conversations to feeling whole again, regaining confidence in their appearance and their expressions. The Prettau bridge is the longest lasting, most effective way to replace your missing teeth, bar none, and we are proud to offer it to our patients.

If you are looking for the most esthetic and durable, permanently attached implant supported teeth replacement option, the Prettau Implant Bridge is the clear choice!  The Prettau Bridge is made of Zirconia, the strongest tooth colored material used in modern implant dentistry.  If you’ve been told that an acrylic hybrid bridge (a titanium metal bar covered with pink acrylic and plastic denture teeth) or a metal bar overdenture with plastic teeth are your only options, you should think again.

The Prettau Bridge has so many advantages over every other tooth replacement option available today. Prettau is made of Zirconia which is totally biocompatible with the human body.  It’s the strongest dental material available and is tooth colored, so the cosmetic results look totally natural and will last many years. Dr. Herman will custom design your Prettau Implant Bridge to give you a long lasting beautiful smile that will make you look and feel younger and healthier. There’s no metal to hide and no acrylic or plastic that can stain, crack, chip or break. The clear choice is to replace your teeth with the Prettau Zirconia Bridge, not with acrylic.

Dentures vs. Implant Dental Bridges

If you are missing most or all of your teeth you have probably considered getting dentures. While traditional dentures restore the look of your smile and support facial muscles, they come with some disadvantages. Because a traditional denture rests directly on top of the gums but has no underlying support, the gums and jawbone lack the stimulation of tooth roots to keep them strong and healthy. Bone loss, receding gums, and face shape alteration are not uncommon for denture wearers. A patient who experiences these consequences may need denture resizing and can be at risk for periodontal disease. Other disadvantages of dentures can include:

  • Slipping and sliding
  • Gum irritation
  • Minimal chewing support
  • Impaired talking ability
  • Embarrassing clicking or sucking noises
  • Reduced food taste

Alternatively, dental bridges provide a longer-term and healthier solution for tooth replacement. Instead of having to reshape the adjacent healthy teeth, one or more dental implants are positioned into the gums to function like tooth roots. These dental implants attach to the dental bridge, creating chewing support and preventing bone or gum loss. In addition, implant supported dental bridges are slip resistant, since they are attached firmly to the implants.
