"Treatment modalities such as treatment of gum disease, root canal therapy, and restorative services such as fillings, crowns and bridges can help patients towards better dental health.  We provide these services at Tischler Dental. There are times, however, when it might make more sense from a long term solution standpoint to replace teeth with a poor prognosis with dental implants. This determination can only be made after a comprehensive consultation where the risks and benefits of implant treatment are reviewed and all possible treatment options are discussed. Call us for a complimentary consultation to determine what is best for you."

This is simply the most permanent tooth replacement option available in dentistry. Come to our monthly seminar to learn more. This zirconia material it is made of is specifically made of Prettau zirconia, it will not chip or break. We have undergone special training by Zirkonzahn the parent company of Prettau and are uniquely qualified to deliver this incredible option at Tischler Dental. No other acrylic option compares.

The Prettau Bridge is named after region of Prettau in Northern Italy and was originated by Zirkonzahn the leader in Zirconia dental technology .We are aligned with Zirkonzahn. Tischler Dental and Tischler Dental Laboratory is one of only a select number of dental facilities that can fabricate the Prettau bridge in their own laboratory and deliver it as dentists.

The Prettau Bridge dental protocol for dental implant systems is unique and involves computer generated CAD CAM designing and milling of the actual bridge out of zirconia, the hardest dental material available. The temporary screw retained bridge is also milled and designed CAD CAM out of a specific plastic from Zirkonzahn. This unique dental step is integral to the Prettau protocol and sets this apart from every other technique available. Special stains made for the Prettau zirconia are also used as part of this dental implant protocol. This dental implant protocol from Zirkonzahn is time tested and unique.


At Tischler Dental we have a unique dedicated team of doctors and a laboratory to deliver the Prettau Implant Protocol. Dr. Michael Tischler feels that this is the future of replacing teeth that are missing or will be missing. The reason?. No acrylic to chip, totally impervious to staining, no metal substructure, gorgeous long lasting esthetics, and digitally milled and designed. The future is here! It is at Tischler Dental and produced right here at Tischler Dental Laboratory. The Prettau Bridge protocol also offers the availability to offer a non denture tooth option soon after implant placement. This allows better stabilization of implants.This protocol has been widely used in Europe, and was originated in Prettau Italy.

Notice the life/like appearance of the upper and lower Prettau Bridge. Unlike acrylic solutions, the longevity is higher with regards to staining and chipping.

What is Zirconia?

• Zircon (ZrSiO4) is a mineral belonging to the mineral class of Silicates, discovered in 1789 by M.H. Klaproth. • Zirconium dioxide (ZrO2) is a compound of the element zirconium occurring in nature and has already been used for 10-15 years in prosthetic dentistry due mainly to it's high bending strength. Why Zirconia? Zirconia has a high resistance and is fully biocompatible. It is increasingly used in dentistry (posts, crowns, bridges and implants). The white basic color of Zirconia. The possibility in dentin colors.Its biotechnological characteristics enable the production of biocompatible, high-quality and esthetic dental and implant reconstructions. Sintered Prettau Zirconia displays incredible density and smoothness. Therefore the material does not cause any wear on natural dentition. By contrast veneer porcelain (or even metal) will cause wear on natural dentition due to its highly porous structure which acts like sandpaper.
