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.
