Restorations with Rocky Hill, CT Prettau dental bridges

Posted by writer

Missing teeth hurt self-image, eating, speaking and bone structure. Read about Prettau dental bridges from Rocky Hill, CT dentist, Dr. Thaddeus Michalski.

Stability, solid bone structure, natural aesthetics–Prettau dental bridges from Thaddeus Michalski DMD in Rocky Hill, CT offer all 3 benefits. A truly innovative tooth replacement, the Prettau dental bridge reflects light just as natural tooth enamel does, and it’s anchored by dental implants for superior stability and longevity.

Traditional tooth loss options

Tooth loss happens. Whether it’s through accident, decay, gum disease or another unfortunate dental condition, a smile gap affects confidence, natural oral function and the size and density of gums and jaw.

For years, dentists had few options to replace missing teeth. The traditional fixed bridge spanned a gap created by one or more teeth in a row, but had the disadvantage of requiring removal of substantial amounts of enamel from neighboring teeth. Traditional full dentures stayed in place with the mouth’s natural suction but had common problems of slippage and speech slurring. Both options did nothing to preserve the size and density of the jaw, and over time, the bone simply resorbed and shrank.

Enter the Prettau Bridge

Dr. Thaddeus S. Michalski offers a better replacement solution. It’s called the Prettau Bridge. Designed by Dr. MIchalski and manufactured by a special laboratory right here in the United States, the Prettau Bridge looks so natural and functions so well that anyone, including the wearer, would be hard-pressed to distinguish it from real teeth.

Customized with CAD-CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) processes according to Dr. Michalski’s specific instructions and patient images, the Prettau Bridge is made from zirconia. Brilliant, realistic and durable, this state of the art material creates artificial teeth that feel and function like real ones.

Plus, the prosthetic is mounted on dental implants, multiple cylindrical screws surgically placed directly into the jaw. Over time, the implants and bone fully bond together through a process called osseointegration. Osseointegration keeps the implants in place for decades and strengthens the jaw every time the patient bites and chews on the bridge.

Your Rocky Hill, CT dentist is a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. Fully trained in the art and science of dental implants and their restorations (crowns, bridges and dentures), Dr. MIchalski evaluates candidates for the Prettau bridge. Through oral examination and CT imaging, he can tell if the jaw is strong enough to accept implants or if it needs bone grafting or other augmentation procedures.
