Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Known clinically as third molars, the wisdom teeth are the final set of permanent molars to emerge, usually in a patient's late teens or early twenties. While some people never experience issues with their wisdom teeth, a great many endure potentially serious problems. Wisdom teeth can grow in at an awkward angle, pushing toward the neighboring tooth and causing severe crowding along the dental arch. They can also face outward, toward the cheek. Impacted wisdom teeth affect 9 out of 10 people, and can lead to serious dental infections. Dr. Ajmo can remove wisdom teeth that pose a threat to your oral health.

Extractions of Dead Teeth

When the nerve and blood vessel-filled tissue at the core of a tooth (called the pulp) dies as the result of a dental infection or trauma, nutrients and hydration fail to flow into the tooth, causing it to die. While a dental crown can reinforce the tooth and protect it from further damage, in some cases this simply isn’t an option. Rather than wait for the tooth to fall out on its own, Dr. Ajmo prefers to extract the dead tooth. He can also recommend reliable tooth replacement options, including dental implants that may be placed in during the extraction appointment.

Bone Grafts

For patients who wish to receive dental implants but who have inadequate bone mass in the jaw, a bone grafting procedure or sinus lift can provide the necessary healthy foundation. During this treatment, Dr. Ajmo can surgically implant your own donor bone tissue or lab-prepared donor tissue.

Dental Implant Placement

Dr. Ajmo has built a reputation as the go-to dental implant dentist in South Florida and The Palm Beaches. He has received advanced training at the prestigious Misch International Implant Institute and has placed thousands of dental implants over the years. Depending on the condition of your jaw and other factors, Dr. Ajmo can surgically place traditional or mini dental implants. Traditional implants can secure dental crowns, bridges, partial dentures, and full dentures, while mini dental implants usually secure a denture.

Other Oral Surgeries

Assisted by a staff of caring, talented dental professionals, Dr. Ajmo may suggest extraction to eliminate teeth crowding in preparation for orthodontic treatment. For internal tooth infections, Dr. Ajmo offers simple and complex root canal therapy, and soft tissue grafts are available to repair gums damaged by disease. Dr. Ajmo also performs gum lifts, ridge augmentations, and oral biopsies.

Why Do I Need Dental X-rays in Palm Beach, FL?

Categories:Radiographs, Dental X Rays, RadiationAuthor:Dr. Jay AjmoDate:2014-06-18
Dental x-rays, also called dental radiographs, are essentially pictures of teeth, bones and soft tissues which are used to help diagnose and treat any dental issue that may arise.  Dental x-rays can find cavities, hidden dental structures such as malignant or benign masses, wisdom teeth and bone loss that cannot be found during a dental examination at PGA Dentistry in Palm Beach, FL. A radiographic image is a technique that uses electromagnetic radiation to view the internal structure of the teeth and jaw.  A burst of radiation penetrates the structure and depending on its density will show light and dark areas.  Cavities, infections and changes in bone density will appear darker because these structures are less dense. There are many concerns about radiation exposure, but according to the American Dental Association, the amount of radiation is typically minimal.  It’s very similar to and airplane flight taken cross- country.  Your dental profe

Porcelain veneers are generally considered cosmetic because they create a bright, white smile with beautifully aligned teeth, but ultimately they protect the surface of damaged teeth and can possibly eliminate the need for additional, more extensive treatments. Other benefits include durability, improved smile appearance, and minimally invasive removal of the tooth structure compared to crowns. Porcelain veneers are designed to fix many types of problems such as discolored teeth, due to root canal treatment, stains from tetracycline or other drugs, worn down, broken teeth, misaligned, uneven or irregularly shaped teeth and gaps or spaces

Put Up Your Dukes! Against Astute Bacteria

Categories:Fluoride, Healthy Mouth, Tooth EnamelAuthor:Dr. Jay AjmoDate:2014-03-07
The mineral fluoride was first introduced to toothpastes and municipal water in the ‘50’s because of its ability to harden tooth enamel and fight decay-causing bacteria.  But now, almost 80 years later, the war on cavities just got a little dirtier.  Recent findings indicate that the bacteria that cause cavities can now fend off fluoride, brilliantly working to sabotage its tooth-positive effects.  Scientists don’t know how bacteria does this, but when they do, it will offer the means to create an oral health regimen that is more bacteria-hostile.   But wait! Don’t abandon fluoride! Using fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day, and flossing once a day, continues to be your best defense against plaque buildup and cavities. Regular professional hygiene (cleaning) appointments are also critical to maintaining your healthy smile.
