Bone Grafting
It is our goal at Simple Smiles Dentistry to provide the most needed and long-lasting care possible for all our patients’ needs. For example, when a tooth is lost, the surrounding bone structure begins to shrink, and if an unhealthy tooth remains in the mouth too long, this process can be accelerated. In order to provide a proper foundation for a dental implant, our dentists may then recommend bone grafting. Dr. Carlos Rojas and his team offer three types of bone grafting procedures:

  • Sinus lift
  • Ridge augmentation
  • Socket preservation

Bone grafting can enhance the bone and encourage bone growth to allow for the successful placement of a dental implant. Our dentists may suggest bone grafting in conjunction with the placement of the dental implant or tooth extraction; it may also be recommended simply to facilitate the placement of a dental implant. For more information on bone grafting in Patterson, New York, we welcome you to contact our dental office.

Dental Implants
Dental implants are a type of tooth replacement that provides exceptional stability and naturalistic results. The dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically implanted in the jaw. After a period of healing, our talented dentists will place the dental implant restoration. Your custom dental implant restoration may be a:

  • Full denture
  • Partial denture
  • Dental crown
  • Dental bridge

When your dental implant has been restored, it will improve your ability to chew, eat, and speak, as well as enhance the beauty of your smile and prevent other teeth from shifting in the mouth. Because dental implants replace both the root and crown of the missing tooth, they look and feel natural and are very secure.
