Westchester and Scarsdale Dental – Meet the Team
Dr. Jesse Hofer DMD, Periodontist & Implant Surgeon
Dr. Jesse Hofer is our periodontist and implant surgeon who is trained to treat patients with gum and bone diseases and bone loss. Periodontitis is a silent gum disease that directly causes bone loss. Bone loss reduces bone structural integrity and causes tooth loss and premature aging like sagging facial skin and losing firm facial muscles. Bone grafting replacement and reconstruction can help restore bone loss and rebuild the healthy bone structure to support implants and restorative teeth that keep facial youth and facial muscle healthy. Without healthy bone structure, teeth and their structure can be further collapsed overtime as lossing bone can cause tooth loss and vice versa. Without healthy bone structure, teeth are lossen and facial skin and muscles are experiencing premature aging. Comprehensive oral treatments with our periodontist and implant surgeon can help patients restore healthy gum and bone structures and reengineer full mouth rehabilitation to regain healthy teeth and facial youth. Healthy gum and healthy bone improve healthy heart.
