Precision Implant Suprastructure Design Center

Our Goal:
Make the prosthesis fit the patient, not the patient fit the prosthesis

The Prism Design Center provides your restorative team with the best of both worlds. The Design freedom of selective laser melting, or Additive Manufacturing, with the accuracy of 5-Axis CNC Milling.

Our specialty is patient-specific implant suprastructures designed to best fit your patient’s needs by a trained PRISM Design Technician:

  • Fixed
  • Detachable
  • Primary Structures
  • Secondary Structures
  • Attachment Bars
  • Bridges
  • All on over 240 Implant Platforms

The PRISM Pearl Finish

Provides unmatched mechanical retention for dental resins and eliminates repair time from acrylic shearing/failures. Time normally dedicated to adjustments and repairs can be allocated to the next case. Mechanical fingers and struts are not needed due to the Pearl micro retention, so the technician does not need to spend time grinding down denture teeth to make them fit the structure.




Surface Retention
Undercuts, honeycombs, and various surface finishes are used to provide superior mechanical retention to dental polymers. AM technology provides for both macro and micro retentions.

Maximize Space
Dynamic 24-30° Angled Screw Access Channels maximize space while improving function and esthetics by controlling the angled placement of screw access holes.

Additive Manufacturing

Freedom of Shape
Additive Manufacturing, technologies (AM) provides unlimited geometric freedom, as well as the accuracy of CNC controlled machining to produce an ideal passive fit without the shape limitations of CNC milling technology that can oftentimes be the cause of undesired irregularities.

Selective Laser Melting and 5-axis milling provides mechanical retention and maximum space and support for resin and esthetics

Perfect Fit
Additive Manufacturing (AM) laser-based technology sequentially builds up thin Titanium layers bottom up. This explains the unlimited design freedom that is associated with our proprietary AM technology. The full freedom in form and function allows dental technicians to design the most sophisticated implant bridges, including highly complex surface retentions and individual emergence profiles.

High Strength Titanium Alloy
All bridge suprastructures are made of medical grade high-strength Titanium alloy. This material is much harder and multiple times stronger than grade II pure Titanium that is widely used in CNC milling. Clinical trials going back to 2006 have validated the strength of this alloy For cases where the technician wishes to veneer porcelain directly to the structure, ceramic cobalt chrome (CTE 14.0) is also available. Titanium and Ceramic Chrome Cobalt Alloys

Patient Specific Design
The layered AM approach allows for designing individual emergence profiles on each of the implant connections, perfectly following the patient’s gingival profile. This results in an aesthetic solution since no metal will be visible in the mouth of the patient. Moreover, it improves the long-term functionality because the prosthetic material is actually enclosed in the small gap formed by the SealWise edge. This avoids the occurrence of micro gaps or chipping of the prosthetic material around the implant connection. This also allows the Dental Team to “reline” the prosthesis to compensate for loss of bone and supportive tissue.

Additive Manufacturing (AM) and CNC milling are both viable technologies to manufacture high-end implant bars. Depending on individual implant bar assignments, you decide which technology is most suited for the bar suprastructure at hand.

We recommend fixed structures are 3D Printed to take advantage of AM technology, while bars with attachments may be fabricated using either technology.

Either way, we streamline the implant bar design with esthetic transitions and polish finishes, offering a perfect fit for the patient and maximum space for the dental technician to finish the final prosthesis.

The use of high-strength titanium alloy provides structures that are multiple times stronger than commonly used materials. Overall, offers the following advantages:

Our Customers Say it the Best

“I first used Preat for a difficult titanium hybrid case I was doing. I worked with Jeff who blew me away with his thorough knowledge of both the biomechanics and the the esthetic nature of the case. Since then I have worked with Jeff on many unique cases and I have never been disappointed. The communication is so complete that you know exactly what to expect. Do yourself a favor and give yourself access to all the nuances of superb design, many of which you may not know are possible!”
Dave Prestipino, CDT – Natural Prosthetics – Star Tannery, VA

“The Prism Design Center is also my choice for 3D printed titanium frameworks. 3D printing of titanium allows us to address situations in which inter-occlusal space is limited. The optional Pearl finish is unique in its ability to retain acrylic if you are utilizing a traditional hybrid approach and cannot be obtained with Milling of titanium. Preat is a forward-thinking company that listens to clinician’s unique challenges and then thinks about these challenges and finds a solution. If you have a challenge with a case, its likely they have the answer.”
Jeremy S. Lansford DMD, MAGD – Paso Robles, California

“The Prism Design team has put us on the map as far as the hybrid printed titanium substructures. Their designs and workmanship is the best I’ve seen in my 36 years of dentistry.”
