Dentapreg® offers minimally invasive, esthetic, and affordable solution for long term temporaries in the anterior area.
Unlike other materials, Dentapreg® strips make it possible to build a provisional bridge chair-side in a single visit, thus saving time and costs and allowing replacement of the tooth immediately using standard crown and bridge composite. Thanks to the provisional solution, it is possible to postpone the final treatment, such as a ceramic bridge or implant.
Anterior bridge using Dentapreg® strips is indicated in the following clinical situations:
- short-term provisionals
- temporization during healing phase of the implant treatment
- short to long-term temporaries to postpone the final treatment
- anterior bridge combined with perio splint
There are several possible types of retention (wing retention - Maryland Bridge, crown prep, slot, etc.) as well as pontics. You can make a pontic out of composite build-up material, use prefabricated denture tooth or even use the original tooth with the root cut off.
For anterior bridges we recommend using Dentapreg® PFM strip for its excellent pliability, adhesion and convenient size. It is very easy to use and you don't need any special instruments or equipment as it is compatible with all light-curing composites. Dentapreg® is suitable for patients allergic to metals, as it is hypoallergenic.
