Bone Grafting - NEW YORK CITY, NY
Don’t Let Bone Loss Limit Your Life
Recapture Your healthy Jawline
A healthy, confident smile is built upon a healthy jawbone. If that foundation isn’t strong, your smile may literally fall apart. Bone loss leads to tooth loss and gives your face an unnaturally aged, sunken appearance. The issues you face aren’t purely esthetic either. With a decayed jawbone your diet becomes very limited. Speaking becomes difficult and embarrassing. The holistically focused multi-specialty team here at Rejuvenation Dentistry®, overseen by our founder and leading authority in biological dentistry Dr. Gerry Curatola, can rebuild your jawbone, allowing you to enjoy daily activities again without discomfort or self-consciousness. We’re your trusted source for bone grafting in New York, NY.
New Bone from the Best Source
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. You won’t find many practices using materials of such high quality for bone grafting in New York.
Bone Grafting Treatments & Benefits
Occurring naturally in your own blood, plasma-rich growth factors (PrGF) facilitate faster healing following bone grafting and other surgical procedures. We collect these growth factors from you by extracting a small amount of your blood. We then spin it at a high speed in a centrifuge, isolating the growth factors from other elements of your blood. Once harvested, we place your growth factors in concentrated form into your surgical sites, where they become a protective layer that aids in healing. A comparable natural process is the way a scab forms over an abrasion to protect the wound.
Tooth loss and bone loss can destroy your distinctive facial appearance. Fortunately, our team can restore your look through ridge augmentation. For this process we use our high-quality bone graft materials to reconstruct and strengthen your jawbone. You get back more than bone and teeth after ridge augmentation—you get a healthier, more youthful look.
Jawbone loss has many complications, as you’ve seen. When your upper jaw recedes, it can have an additional detrimental effect. Some of your sinuses are supported by your upper jaw. If the bone collapses, those sinuses do as well. We’ll restore your sinuses to their proper position with a sinus lift. For this we carefully raise the sinus floor and place bone graft material below it.
