During Self-Improvement Month this September, Round Rock, TX dentist Dr. Bhavesh Bhakta is helping his patients enhance their smiles with the Prettau® Zirconia Dental Bridge. This implant-supported bridge is a strong, durable tooth replacement that prevents bone density loss and stays permanently secure.

In support of Self-Improvement Month this September, Dr. Bhavesh Bhakta, a Round Rock, TX dentist, is helping his patients improve their smiles, self-esteem, and oral health with the implanted Prettau® Zirconia Dental Bridge. Like other implants, the Prettau® bridge stabilizes bone density levels and poses no risk of slipping out of place. This bridge offers a high rate of success due to its precise production and favorable characteristics, such as durability and flexibility.

A Prettau® Dental Bridge offers longer-lasting results than many other tooth replacement prosthetics. Research published in the International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery indicates that Prettau® bridges have a 100 percent success rate over a five-year period. Compared to other prosthetic materials, Prettau® zirconia is highly durable and resistant to damage; additionally, this zirconia is more elastic than other implant materials, which improves functionality and stability. Dr. Bhakta often recommends this bridge to patients who are using or considering hybrid bridges or bar overdentures. To accommodate the unique needs of each patient, Dr. Bhakta offers bridges that are custom-designed and produced with computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology, which ensures precision.

In addition to lasting results, the Prettau® bridge offers patients significant health benefits. The implants that anchor the bridge in place also provide the stimulation necessary to prevent jawbone deterioration. Jawbone deterioration often follows tooth loss, and is associated with changes in facial appearance and mouth structure. The stabilization of bone density levels also allows patients to continue using the same tooth replacement prosthetic for years.

People interested in the Prettau® Dental Bridge can benefit from visiting Dr. Bhakta, a Round Rock, TX dentist. Since the bridge is an implant-based prosthetic, Dr. Bhakta can only place it if a patient has adequate bone density. People who wait too long to receive an implanted bridge may require bone grafts to offset bone density decreases. Patients are encouraged to call the office of Dr. Bhakta to schedule an appointment today. Patients can also visit Dr. Bhakta’s website to find more information about the Prettau® bridge.
