Prettau® Clinical Information

Implant-supported Bridge

IMPORTANT: We need a minimum of 12mm prosthetic space per arch for the Prettau® Bridge!

This 12mm of prosthetic space is gained through adequate alveoloplasty. Our Prettau® DVD and Prettau® Course covers the surgical steps needed to ascertain this space.

Laboratory Steps

The process of creating the final Prettau® Implant bridge is a multi stage process that involves specific sintering protocols, with proprietary Zirkonzahn® stains used prior to sintering. These stains allow gorgeous esthetics and translucency of the zirconia that rivals porcelain. At times special Zirkinzahn porcelain is placed on the esthetic areas out of any occlusal areas. The final bridge is connected to the implants via titanium interfaces that are specially bonded to the Prettau® zirconia.

There are many choices and options for the surgeon, restorative clinician, patient, and dental laboratory team to review and accept prior to the scalpel being used.
