Dental Implants In Houston - Kenneth M. Lubritz, DDS
If you are missing one or more teeth due to gum disease, tooth decay, or injury, Dr. Kenneth M. Lubritz, has the skill and experience to help regain a healthy and beautiful smile. As one of the largest providers of Zimmer dental implants in the West Houston area, Dr. Lubritz has established himself as a specialist you can trust.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
A dental implant consists of a small titanium post that is surgically placed into the jaw to act as a strong tooth root. To complete a smile that feels natural and looks great, dental implants provide reliable stability for the following restorations:
- Full and Partial Dentures
Single dental implants can be used to support a crown when replacing an individual missing tooth, two implants can support a bridge to replace a row of teeth, and dentures can be supported by two to four implants. Dentures can be retained by dental implants that are removable or permanently secured.
The Healthier Alternative
Because the implant post is surgically implanted, implant-supported restorations are far sturdier than adhesive dentures or fixed dental bridges that rely on the continued health of adjacent teeth. Dental implants are a popular choice as they can permanently replace teeth and provide stimulation to the jawbone, preventing loss of bone volume. When jawbone mass is lost over time due to missing tooth roots, a common result is a sunken look that gives the appearance of premature aging.
Receiving dental implants at our West Houston practice also offers comfort and confidence in your smile that is unmatched by other teeth replacement methods. Implant supported dentures allow you to speak freely and eat your favorite foods without the fear of slippage or loss of the restoration.
Our West Houston Dental Implants Practice
Good candidates for dental implants are typically those whose jaw bone is dense enough to hold the implant post, and who are not experiencing periodontal problems. Dr. Lubritz can assess your eligibility for the procedure and provides supportive services for those who have already lost bone volume or are still experiencing the effects of gum disease.
If for any reason, you require pre-treatment before getting your implant(s), our specialist can perform the following procedures:
- Gum Grafting
- Soft Tissue Grafting
- Gum Disease Treatment
- Tooth Extractions
In some cases, it’s possible to get to same-day dental implants from our Houston periodontal office. As each patient’s case is different, Dr. Lubritz only recommends what’s best to meet your specific needs.
We also offer dental sedation and local anesthetic, depending on your needs, to make your implant placement as comfortable as possible.
