Expandable Dental Implant Apparatus

U.S. Patent No: 6,991,461 B2
1/31/2006

A novel dental implant with flexible expansion ribs that lock into and compress the bone within a drilled hole in the jawbone. Upon tightening the screw used to mount the implant abutment, a set of thin medical-alloy ribs lock into the surrounding bone to provide an immediate and permanently strong support for a dental prosthesis while bone growth into the implant occurs. The expanding ribs turn an edge outward to lock into the surrounding bone and preventing the rotation of the implant assembly during installation and use.

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!
