Bone Grafting

Bone Grafting
A healthy, confident smile relies on a strong jawbone foundation. Bone loss not only leads to tooth loss but also contributes to an aged appearance. The issues go beyond aesthetics; a decayed jawbone limits your diet and hinders speech. Dr. Gerry Curatola and the Rejuvenation Health team, experts in biological dentistry, can rebuild your jawbone through bone grafting. This procedure restores both the form and function of your smile, allowing you to resume daily activities without discomfort.

How bone grafting works

Bone grafting involves taking actual bone material or a biocompatible substitute and placing it in areas where you’ve lost jawbone. The graft material slowly joins with the existing bone, giving it sufficient strength and mass to hold dental implants, which replace your lost teeth with durable, long-lasting replacements. Careful selection of materials is key to success in bone grafting and the ultimate goal of improving your overall health. We’ve done decades of research to find the best biocompatible options—ones that also resist infection and facilitate healthy blood clotting.
Biological bone grafting enhances healing with plasma-rich growth factors (PrGF) derived from your blood. These growth factors, isolated through centrifugation, form a protective layer in surgical sites, expediting recovery. Additionally, our ridge augmentation process, using high-quality bone graft materials, restores your jawline for a healthier, more youthful appearance. Jawbone loss complications, including sunken sinuses, are addressed through a sinus lift, elevating the sinus floor and placing bone graft material to restore proper positioning.

Anxiety-free dentistry

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.

Nothing you wear is more important than your smile!
