Dental Implants In Houston - Kenneth M. Lubritz, DDS
Your teeth affect your whole body, so when they are healthy, you are too. Missing teeth can impact your bite, speech, and eating choices. The remaining teeth are relied on more, increasing the chance they will wear out prematurely, be damaged, or misplaced. Dental implants are anchors that integrate with the jawbone to provide secure, stable, and long-lasting tooth replacement that helps restore comfort, function, and self-confidence. Dental implants become part of your jaw, allowing you to eat, talk and smile without worry. When you lose teeth, you lose the supporting bone of the jaw, in other words, the bone of the jaw dissolves. Dental implants help to preserve the jaw bone.
Dr. Kenneth M. Lubritz and his team at Periodontics & Dental Implants specialize in dental implant treatments and provide patients a world class level of expertise and care.
Advanced Dental Implant Care in Houston
Advancements in dental technology have made dental implant treatment more comfortable and efficient than ever. We have equipped our practice with state-of-the-art technology for periodontics, including the latest dental CT scanner to capture 3D, 360º views of the teeth and jaw for precise and efficient dental implant placement. In many cases, this technology can help us extract teeth, place implants and teeth in one day if the circumstances allow this technique.
We precisely plan where to place your implants for best bone volume and density, as well as any other treatment that might need to be done to ensure your implant surgery’s success. Different types of implants are available for you depending on your unique oral health needs:
- Single Tooth Implants: For patients who have lost a single tooth due to decay, an accident, or periodontal disease. The crown on your new dental implant will look and function like your other natural teeth.
- Multiple Implants: For patients who are missing more than one tooth, but still have healthy gums and surrounding teeth. Two fixtures are implanted, and the crown is attached, leaving other natural teeth intact, like a bridge.
- All-On-4 Implants: For patients who need to replace a full upper or lower set of teeth. We will place four implants then attach a full arch of teeth. These teeth can be attached to your implants, so only your dentist can remove them, or they can be “snapped” in and out by the patient. The can also be made with or without a palate, so you can taste your food better.
What Can I Expect After Receiving a Dental Implant?
Your teeth require conscientious at-home care and regular dental visits. Dental implants are like your original teeth and will require the same care. To keep your implant clean and plaque-free, brushing and flossing still apply!
When properly prepared, placed, and looked after, dental implants can last your lifetime. Key to their endurance is the foundation on which they are placed. We make sure that your implants are embedded in healthy bone and gum tissue. Our goal is to provide the best implant dental care for you and your family in a calm, friendly, and comfortable atmosphere.
