As Americans live longer, over one-third of us will suffer from missing and failing teeth. Our largest generation to date, the baby boomers (born between 1945 and 1964) consumed huge amounts of sugary foods and drinks, which lead to tooth decay. The fillings and treatments they received as teenagers and twenty-somethings are over 40 years old, with more and more failing every day.
Twenty-first century advances in dental techniques and products provide the basis for creating a truly permanent solution that puts an end to patients’ suffering as well as to continuous trips to the dentist for procedures that eventually fail.
Dental Implants have revolutionized dentistry by providing a solid platform for replacement teeth and bridges.
The first part of any permanent solution for patients with no remaining teeth is a durable full-arch bridge secured to dental implants.
Dr. Michael Tischler, a leader in advances in implant dentistry for over 25 years, began providing full-arches to his patients using acrylic bridges with denture teeth. The BioHorizons Implants he used worked exceptionally well, but the attached bridges failed so often, that he needed a spare to be ready when the patient inevitably experienced a chip, crack, or fracture. In addition to breaking, acrylic bridges with denture teeth also attract stains, plaque, and odors, and can cause additional hygiene issues.
Clearly, a more durable material was needed to create full-arch bridges.
Dr. Tischler began working with Prettau® Zirconia at his Tischler Dental Lab and by 2012 had developed a robust manufacturing process and patient treatment protocol that delivered 219 full arches to 153 patients by the end of 2016. The results of this 5-year study were presented to the International Congress of Oral Implantologists in early 2017, and has set a new paradigm for durability as none of the bridges chipped, cracked, fractured, or otherwise failed – a 100% success rate!
5-Year Documented Study + 100% Success Rate = Proven, Permanent Solution
Not all full-arch bridges are created equal. The Prettau® Zirconia bridges exclusively manufactured for Teeth Tomorrow by Tischler Dental Lab are the only full-arch product with a 100% success rate proven by a 5-year study. This enables Teeth Tomorrow to provide a truly permanent solution that doesn’t chip, crack, fracture, or attract plaque, odors, or stains. Patients clean these bridges as they would natural teeth – they don’t remove them and there is no need to floss!
