Healthy gums, body, and soul
Your gums are the gateway to your overall health
Losing your beautiful smile isn’t the only reason to seek gum disease treatment and preventive maintenance. Your mouth is a mirror to the rest of your body. When the bacteria that cause gum disease are left untreated, it will pass through the open door of a periodontal pocket and spread throughout your body. This infection and chronic inflammation can increase your risk of systemic illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. That’s why gum disease treatment and prevention should be a top priority for you. It’s certainly a top priority for us. Esteemed biological dentist and founder of Rejuvenation Dentistry®, Dr. Gerry Curatola, and our entire acclaimed team offer periodontal maintenance to promote full-body health and wellness and prevent re-infection.
Periodontal maintenance visits are essentially deep cleanings that keep your mouth fresh and healthy. Scheduled every three to four months, the visits allow us to clean your teeth below the gum line, at the root surface. We also monitor the oral environment for any changes that may indicate a recurrence.
Stop chronic inflammation
The bacteria that cause periodontal disease are always present in your mouth. Chronic infection and inflammation begins when the bacterial population is not managed or cleared away on a regular basis through brushing and flossing. Gum disease treatments initially remove problematic bacteria overgrowth and infected tissue, but new bacteria will grow. Continual maintenance is critical to your oral health or this silent infection will lead to systemic conditions.
If we see any cause for concern during your checkups, preventative gum disease treatments, such as scaling and root planing, can be scheduled. Scaling and root planing is a nonsurgical procedure that removes harmful bacteria from the periodontal pockets and tooth roots while also encouraging the reattachment of gum tissue to the tooth surface.
We can help put an end to your painful and discouraging symptoms with full mouth solutions that fit your lifestyle, smile goals, and budget!

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.
