Dentures Improve Your Life

For patients who are missing teeth, a family meal or social event can present a challenge. How can you truly enjoy the food and conversation when you are unable to chew adequately, or speak clearly and confidently? A complete and functional smile is important to your quality of life, and with the prosthetic replacement options available today, there is truly no reason to live with the discomfort of a compromised smile. Top-quality dentures offered by PGA Dentistry in Palm Beach Gardens are custom crafted to achieve an excellent fit, function properly, and look natural. Completing your smile with new dentures is an experience many patients call “life changing.”

As an implant and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Jay Ajmo has the training and experience necessary to provide denture patients with a variety of functional, attractive prosthetic options. With properly fitted dentures, you can enjoy a traditional meal again, and speak without worrying about impaired pronunciation due to missing teeth. In addition, dentures fill out sunken areas caused by missing teeth, providing the underlying structure needed for a fuller, healthier appearance. Beautiful porcelain teeth restorations offer the look and texture of natural tooth enamel, so you can smile with confidence. And, because you are able to eat a greater variety of nutritious foods and enjoy social occasions, dentures contribute to your overall health and happiness.

We Offer Different Denture Types

At the PGA Dentistry, we offer dentures to patients in Palm Beach Gardens and across the U.S. Different dentures work best for different patients, so we will help you a find the right solution for you. We offer contemporary full dentures and partial dentures that are more comfortable, lightweight, and natural looking than previous generations. Dr. Ajmo also has extensive hands-on experience placing and restoring implant dentures, a good option for patients who want to avoid the common issues of denture slippage.

Traditional Full Dentures

A full denture refers to a removal prosthetic plate that replaces all the teeth on either the top dental arch, bottom dental arch, or both arches. Removable full dentures rest on top of the gums and are usually held in place with denture adhesive. Modern dentures are usually fabricated from lightweight acrylic. We use only top-quality dental laboratory where talented technicians construct full dentures, partial dentures, and implant-retained dentures.

Traditional Partial Dentures

If you are missing a few teeth but still have some of your natural teeth remaining, partial dentures may be an excellent treatment option. Partial dentures fit snugly between remaining natural teeth to complete a full arch. Partials look natural and will allow you to perform daily activities, such as chewing and speaking, normally. In terms of construction, partial dentures bear a close similarity to full dentures: acrylic or porcelain teeth are embedded in a gum-colored base that rests on top of the gum line. Partial dentures can be fixed or removable, and the right option for you will depend on several factors, including the health of your remaining teeth and your goals for treatment.

A Closer Look at Implant-Supported Dentures

Drawing on his advanced training in oral surgery, Dr. Ajmo can secure a full arch or set of teeth on the upper, lower, or both jaws to titanium implant posts. These posts are surgically embedded in the jaw, becoming fused with the bone, much like a tooth’s natural root. Implant-supported dentures provide more stability than traditional dentures. Implant dentures will not slip out of place while you are eating or speaking and never need messy adhesives. In addition to their reliability, implant dentures offer several other benefits:

Improved chewing ability: Although traditional dentures restore some chewing ability, eating certain chewy or crunchy foods continues to present a challenge. Implant-supported dentures dramatically increase the wearer’s bite force and, combined with the improved stability of the denture, dramatically improve the ability to chew crunchy or chewy foods.

Maintained jawbone health: When you lose a permanent tooth, your body detects the tooth’s absence and halts the flow of nutrients to the area. The bone tissue resorbs away and the jaw bone around the missing tooth begins to shrink. When a dental implant is placed, the implant post stimulates the jaw, so the body continues to deliver crucial nutrients to the area, preserving bone density.

Longer-lasting replacement teeth. Implant-secured dentures will last much longer than traditional dentures while the implant posts are designed to last a lifetime in a healthy mouth.

Consultation and Procedure

During your initial consultation, Dr. Ajmo will talk with you about your experience with dentures or missing teeth and discuss your goals and lifestyle. He will explain all the available options, and together you will choose the best option to replace your missing teeth. If implant-supported dentures are your choice, we will perform a CT scan to measure your bone density and determine the best possible placement of the implants. To create dentures with the best possible fit, we will take a digital scan of your teeth to create a three-dimensional model. Dr. Ajmo will take care to ensure the prosthetic teeth are the right shape, size and shade to complement your appearance. The model is sent to our lab, where highly trained dental technicians will custom craft your dentures. Your completed dentures will arrive in a few weeks.
