Houston Dental Implants

Beautify your smile today!

Dental implants have quickly become the preferred method for replacing missing teeth. Anchored in the jaw bone, dental implants function like natural teeth and offer many benefits over traditional bridges and dentures. As a leading implant dentist, lecturer, and patent-holder, Dr. Gittleman has the innovation and expertise required to solve even the most complex implant cases.

Dental Implants 101

Modern dental implants came to fruition in the 1980's after decades of research by Professor Brånemark. He discovered that bone tissue fused to titanium in a process called osseointegration. He applied the principle to dentistry, and the first dental implants were born. Implant technology has continued to improve over the years, and they've maintained a 90% success rate.

The titanium portion of the implant is surgically inserted into the jaw bone, near the proximity of the tooth's former root. Over time, bone tissue fuses to the implant, creating a foundation for a crown or prosthetic device. Dental implants can anchor a single replacement tooth, as well as bridges, partial dentures, and full dentures.

Benefits of dental implants include:

  • Independently Anchored
  • Long-Lasting
  • Fully Functional
  • Aesthetic
  • Stimulate Bone Growth

At Houston Prosthodontic Associates, our primary concern is to preserve bone. When teeth are lost, the jaw bone can eventually wither and atrophy. Dental implants are the only solution that can curb bone loss and actually encourage new bone to grow. Learn more about bone loss by contacting our office today at 713-993-0003.

Testimonials

Dear Dr. Gittleman, I should have sent this along ago but struggled with trying to find the words that truly conveyed my gratitude. I don't know if you have any idea what you have done for me – maybe you do; but you have given me several gifts… a lot more confidence, through the roof comfort and a cost that was affordable for us. I'm able to eat, laugh, talk and even travel now without worrying that my prosthesis is going to shift or move or click – for the first time in almost 4 years! And because it doesn't move or shift, there is no more pain. Before the implants, I had constant discomfort, mouth sores and difficulty eating. I know it's only been a little over a month, but it's been fabulous so far! You and your staff were wonderful and completely professional. I will never be able to return the kindness – but if I know anyone who is considering implants I will send them your way – you are simply the Best!
