Biologic dental implants
Regain the look, and feel of your natural teeth
Tooth replacement is about more than filling gaps in your smile, it’s also about restoring your ability to chew properly, to speak with confidence, and to feel good about yourself. We take pride in offering solutions that restore the look and function of your smile using biological principles that will not harm your health. Rejuvenation Health restorations are designed to be comfortable, permanent, undetectable, and most importantly, bio-compatible. Dr. Gerry Curatola, founder of Rejuvenation Health, and our entire distinguished team specialize in planning and placing dental implants and restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
Why you should choose dental implants
When you suffer from tooth loss, tooth implants are recommended over short-term bridges, that harm adjacent healthy teeth, and full or partial dentures. Although dentures have long been a staple of restoration dentistry, many find their temporary nature to be problematic. Poorly adhering pastes and sliding dentures can be uncomfortable and leave you feeling insecure. Dental implants you can regain your confidence. A balanced and healthy diet, the freedom to laugh fully, and the ability to speak without hesitation can all become realities. Schedule a consultation with our team to learn how we can revitalize your smile with dental implants.

Avoid making cosmetic mistakes
Dental implants are a lifetime investment in your health, function, and quality of life. Avoid the common mistakes people make when considering implants by following our recommendations.
Zirconia Implants: Metal and allergy free
Why Zirconia Implants? Zirconia is both a tensile and a very durable, dense material. Since it is highly bio-compatible (i.e. able to integrate naturally into the body), it is used in dentistry for posts, crowns, implant abutments and dental implants.
Zirconia matches the color of natural teeth, and is bio-inert making it both a good-looking and superior material in implant dentistry particularly in cases where metal allergies, aesthetics or other compatibility issues are of concern.
The benefits of our biologic approach to dental implants
As biologic and restorative dentists, we consider the whole patient including the systemic effects of treatment. That’s why we highly recommend zirconia dental implants. Zirconia does not cause allergic reactions and is not sensitive to temperature (since it is thermally not conductive). Given their natural tooth-like appearance, zirconia implants have an aesthetic advantage over titanium implants. While attractive aesthetic results can also be obtained with titanium implants where ceramic posts and crowns are used, this significantly increases the cost of treatment. Ceramic implants cause very little inflammation, exhibit significantly less plaque formation and in the event of slight gum recession or shrinkage, they do not reveal the unsightly gray lines attributed to titanium implants. Zirconia implants are non-corrosive and have no impact on taste in the mouth. Significantly, Zirconia implants do not cause health disturbances such as galvanization (electro-current disturbance) which naturally disrupts the body’s energy meridians and inter-cellular electric currents, as well as causes or accelerates disease processes.
Bio-Compatible bone graft materials
All of the bone grafting materials that we use here have been painstakingly selected over decades of research. Our team has considered only the most natural, effective and top-of-the-line materials available on the dental market with the greatest consideration of every material’s bio-compatibility. All of our grafting materials have bacteriostatic properties, and facilitate blood clotting in a bone graft, enabling the material to take on the necessary density. Further, these materials are rarely utilized by other general dentists or oral surgeons because they require more investment of time, educational effort, and cost on our part. We believe that you’re worth it!

At Rejuvenation Health, your overall physical and emotional wellbeing are as important to us as your oral health. As a biologically driven multi-specialty dental team, we consider how what we do impacts all of you—not just your mouth. We offer all major sedation methods from local to general anesthesia, our practice is synonymous with sedation dentistry in New York, NY so that you can relax through your appointment without fear or pain.
We use local anesthesia, the foundational level of sedation, to numb treatment sites before a minor procedure. You remain completely alert under its effects.
We’ll prescribe a medication for you to take either before your visit or during it. The level of anxiety you have will determine the kind of medication we provide as well as the level of comfort you experience.
We administer nitrous oxide, sometimes referred to as laughing gas, through a mask. Nitrous oxide keeps you alert but relaxed throughout your treatment, and its effects wear off quickly after the mask is removed.
Administered intravenously, IV sedation puts you in a sleep-like state, though you’re not actually asleep. You won’t feel any sensation during your procedure, nor will you remember anything about it afterward.
Usually reserved for use during the most complex dental and medical procedures, general anesthesia is a combination of medications that renders you fully unconscious for the duration of your procedure.
