Dr. Ajmo discusses full mouth reconstruction process

Harmonizing Your Oral Health

The human mouth is a complex system made up of various tissues and a number of different parts, which include the gums, jaw, teeth, and inner cheeks. These components are interconnected in function. For example, how the upper and lower jaws come together is known as an occlusion, and if your teeth are misaligned this can result in several significant dental health problems, including tooth decay and reduced bite strength. A full mouth reconstruction is a comprehensive treatment of any and all oral health issues that may be compromising your dental and overall wellbeing. By addressing the entirety of the mouth comprehensively, we can simultaneously restore your entire mouth back to good health and create natural beauty and brilliance to your smile.

A full mouth reconstruction optimizes and harmonizes your oral anatomy’s health in its entirety, from your jawbone to gums, your teeth and your smile. Since each patient’s oral structure and dental needs are unique, the treatment has to be individualized. PGA Dentistry, in Palm Beach Gardens, FL offers a broad range of specific cosmetic, implant and restorative options that we can choose from to build a treatment plan that addresses the exclusive needs and requirements of each patient. Because the procedure must be custom-tailored, only Dr. Ajmo can provide an accurate idea of the structure of the reconstruction process. However, in what follows we try to offer a general overview of what your full mouth reconstruction procedure will look like.

What a Full Mouth Reconstruction Can Do For You

A full mouth reconstruction is a comprehensive and inclusive dental treatment that seeks to revitalize your smile and your oral health. At PGA Dentistry we custom-tailor the full mouth reconstruction to the specific issues that are affecting your oral wellbeing, thereby delivering an optimized treatment that will help ensure a strikingly healthy smile. As such, there is a broad range of restorative options, each of which offers its own set of benefits.

Through a comprehensive approach, a full mouth reconstruction addresses every aspect of your oral health, all at the same time. PGA Dentistry makes use of the latest state-of-the-art technology to make your visit to our Palm Beach Gardens, FL office as comfortable as possible. One such piece of equipment we use is the Biolase® Waterlase™ laser, which is a virtually painless method of manipulating the different tissues of the gums and jawbone. At our Palm Beach Gardens, FL office, we use leading-edge computer imaging technology to create a precise digital impression of your mouth which will be used to design an effective and multi-dimensional treatment plan that addresses your oral health as a whole. Through a combination of treatments, we can eliminate your dental problems and help your smile regain its lost luster.

Our Process

Each patient has a unique oral anatomy and an exclusive set of dental health care issues. As such, no two full mouth reconstructions will be the same; the combinations of treatments will change depending on each person’s specific dental needs. Different dental health problems are prioritized by the severity of the health risk they pose. As such, any dental issues that may be causing you pain are immediately addressed and dental infections or gum disease are treated as early as possible and teeth that can’t be saved are extracted. At this initial stage, bone grafting may also be performed, dental implants may be placed and you’ll receive temporaries or provisional teeth so you can smile comfortably. At PGA Dentistry, we make it a point to include a multitude of procedures simultaneously, minimizing the number of procedures you have to undergo.

What to Expect

Following this initial stage of the procedure, you will likely have a recovery period during which your gums will heal from the initial treatments. After the infections and disease have fully healed, you will return to PGA Dentistry for a reassessment to prepare for the next phase of treatment. Depending on your situation, this may include implant supported bridgework, cosmetic crowns or implant supported dentures to restore your mouth to proper function and esthetics. It’s also at this time that we’ll correct any malocclusion, or misalignment, that your jaw suffers from, so that we can make sure your bite is healthy and at full strength.

For Your Comfort

At our Palm Beach Gardens, FL practice we prioritize your health and your comfort, and to that effect we offer a variety of spa-like amenities. Dr. Ajmo is one of a small number of south Florida dentists who specializes in IV sedation therapy, which will keep you calm and awake during the procedure. Expertly monitored by Dr. Ajmo and his highly trained team, IV sedation is safe, effective, and extremely popular amongst our patients.

Who is an Ideal Candidate?

If you have recently had a tooth extracted, then you are most likely a candidate for full mouth reconstruction. Because the procedure takes an all-inclusive approach to oral wellbeing, Dr. Ajmo and his staff will take care to prepare you for each subsequent stage of the process. For example, if you and Dr. Ajmo decide to replace missing teeth with dental implants, we may need to conduct a preliminary and supplemental procedure, such as a bone graft or a soft tissue augmentation. Thus, even if you weren’t originally a candidate for a specific facet of the treatment, we can help to treat and overcome whatever obstacles stand between you and a gorgeous, healthy smile.

Keep in mind that a full mouth reconstruction aims to bring the entirety of your oral anatomy back to full health, so if you suffer from any major dental problem you very well may be a perfect candidate for the procedure. The treatment concentrates on eliminating tooth decay and gum disease, as well as restoring and replacing damaged and lost teeth. It can also address jaw misalignments and issues with the temporomandibular joints (TMJ), which can cause the patient much discomfort and soreness.

Full Mouth Reconstruction Treatments

dental implants

Missing teeth can have a profoundly negative impact on overall health. People with one or several missing teeth experience difficulty biting and chewing certain foods, and forming the sounds required for normal speech. People with no remaining teeth may suffer from poor nutrition, and suffer from the poor general health associated with malnutrition. Dental implants provide a secure, long-lasting solution for missing teeth. Dr. Ajmo has received advanced training in all phases of dental implant placement, and he has helped hundreds of patients enjoy renewed confidence, restored function, and a more youthful appearance with dental implants.

Emax dental crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cover created to restore a tooth that has been damaged by trauma, severe decay or infection. Our practice provides patients with all-ceramic E-Max® dental crowns, which are known for increased strength and durability as well as enhanced esthetics. These crowns look just like a natural tooth, so your crown will blend beautifully with your other teeth. Your weakened tooth will be restored to full function, so it won’t impair your ability to enjoy a full menu of normal foods.

zircornia implant bridge

Zirconia implant bridges have been a popular treatment option for edentulous patients in Europe for well over a decade. However, this innovative dental implant prosthetic has only become available in the United States within the last few years, and the PGA Dentistry is one of the only dental practices in South Florida or The Palm Beaches to offer it. The zirconia implant bridge is an implant-secured full arch restoration that is fabricated using zirconia, an ultra-strong, biocompatible type of dental material. Zirconia will not chip, crack, or scratch, and it is stain resistant. This means that your new smile will continue to look new for years.

tooth colored fillings

In the past, treating a cavity meant settling for a metal filling. The unnatural appearance of metal fillings could fill your smile with grey, and make it difficult to smile with confidence. Now we can restore your teeth using tooth-colored fillings. Made of natural-looking composite material, tooth-colored fillings are safe and long-lasting. We can closely match the color of your filling with that of your smile so that no one will ever know you have a filling. The durability of the porcelain material is so high that having a filling will actually strengthen your tooth. There has never been a better time to replace your outdated metal fillings and watch your smile transform into a thing of beauty.

root canal xray

Your teeth contain an inner pulp that contains components commonly referred to as the “nerve” of the tooth. Each pulp chamber branches off, forming canals that lead toward the tooth root tip. A deep cavity, traumatic injury, or tooth fracture can make the nerve canals susceptible to bacterial infection, which can kill the pulp or nerve creating pressure within the tooth. This can cause severe tooth pain and may initiate bone degeneration, tooth loss, and even more acute pain. If you see a dentist in the earliest stages of this condition, the tooth may be saved with a root canal. Otherwise, it should be extracted and replaced with a prosthetic.

dental laser equipment

Your smile is a natural work of art that depends upon every detail of your mouth’s appearance. Sometimes, however, nature needs a little assistance from another artisan. If your smile appears “gummy,” your teeth may not be too small. Perhaps you have too much gum tissue. In cases like this, Dr. Ajmo may use laser dentistry to gently correct visually imbalanced gum tissue. He will artistically sculpt your gums around your teeth to create a pleasing smile. Patients experience little or no bleeding with laser dentistry and healing is usually quite prompt.

dentures

For many patients, dentures are associated with embarrassing slips and the frustration that arises when you can’t enjoy your favorite foods. Luckily, modern dentures offer a lightweight design, precision fit, and better aesthetics than the dentures of days past. Dr. Ajmo is trained to design and place traditional removable dentures, as well as dentures secured by dental implants and mini implants.

Combined Full Mouth Reconstruction Treatments

Cosmetic porcelain crowns can treat cavities resulting from tooth decay. After removing the demineralized or decayed tissue, these teeth can be restored with cosmetic porcelain crowns. At PGA Dentistry we use metal free porcelains that look like real teeth. High quality metal free porcelain is both aesthetically superior to and much healthier than porcelain to metal crowns often used in the past.

Missing teeth, can be replaced by dental implants, which are the strongest, most stable, and longest-lasting solution to tooth loss. An implant replaces the lost tooth root with a biocompatible titanium insert that performs many of the same functions. The implant can also support one or more dental prostheses, which are permanent replacement teeth that closely match the color, size, and shape to your natural teeth. Together, dental implants and cosmetic porcelain crowns can restore the natural beauty of your smile, while simultaneously protecting your health and wellbeing.

If a periodontal infection is particularly severe, it can start to wear away at your gums and the jawbone. Likewise, tooth decay can spread towards the core of your teeth, where the pulp is located. In these cases, two treatments that we commonly combine to treat both of these problems are root canal therapy and laser dentistry.

A root canal procedure, also known as an endodontic treatment, the infected tooth pulp will be removed and the remaining space is filled, and then sealed, with gutta-percha, a tough organic substance. Root canal therapy may be able to save an extremely decayed tooth and can even return its natural chewing strength. Likewise, laser dentistry, a leading-edge solution to significant gum disease, can repair lost gum and bone tissue. One benefit of laser treatment is the fact that it is much less intrusive than alternative methods of gum surgery.

We understand that visiting the dentist can make someone nervous. No one likes to sit on a chair while another person works on their teeth. Our team sympathizes with our patients and know where they’re coming from. IV sedation allows you to experience the treatment in blissful comfort; you’ll experience absolutely no discomfort during the entire procedure.
