Prettau® Zirconia is a full arch restoration that includes artificial teeth and gums, made from durable Zirconia. It’s secured to your mouth via four to six implant fixtures, and remains permanently placed.
Traditional full arch bridges were made from acrylic or porcelain. While durable, these materials are nowhere near as resilient as the custom Zirconia. Zirconia is non-porous, making it perfectly smooth and able to interact with your natural teeth without friction. This also means that Zirconia won’t chip and can’t be stained, so you’ll have a beautiful smile for years to come.
Every part of the Zirconia restoration can be customized for maximum comfort and natural appearance. Each element is hand-painted to match your natural smile.
Prettau® Zirconia is not only resilient to the natural stresses of oral functions, but is also biocompatible much like a dental implant.
The Zirconia restoration is supported on four to six implant fixtures. Like dental implants, these implant fixtures also undergo osseointegration with your jawbone. Osseointegration permanently secures the implants to the jawbone, meaning that you can enjoy your restoration for years or even decades to come. This fusion process also regenerates your jawbone and allows it to heal and become stronger. In the end not only do you have the advantage of a flawless restoration, but also the strength and reliability of dental implants combined.
The implant fixtures are made from titanium, which was discovered in the 1950s to be biocompatible with organic tissues like blood and bone. After this discovery, titanium was integrated into dental and medical devices.
When the titanium fixture makes contact with your jawbone, it triggers the surrounding bone to generate new fibers. These fibers are wrapped around the fixture and solidified, securing it in place. Thanks to this fusion process, your Zirconia bridge is permanently fixed. Unlike dentures, you won’t have to worry about how stable your Zirconia restoration is.
The construction of a Prettau® Zirconia bridge restoration combines both computer precision and a human touch. The bridge itself, including the teeth and gums components, is modelled and milled in a laboratory. Once the frame is complete, a dental technician hand-paints the bridge to match the rest of your smile. The bridge is then heated in a furnace to layer the coloring permanently.
During the installation process, Dr. Andrey Rossius will test to ensure that the bridge is stable in your mouth. Your comfort is our top priority, along with ensuring that your bridge is resilient and beautiful.
You don’t need to resort to regular dentures or a fixed bridge to restore your smile to full functionality. Get the best of both the Zirconia and implant worlds by combining them into a beautiful bridge restoration!
