Dr. Ajmo is your full-mouth reconstruction expert. Many patients may be missing teeth or have alignment issues, and full-mouth reconstruction treatment can combine several procedures to restore your smile. Patients will commonly have dental implants placed in combination with orthodontic treatments for a more complete smile enhancement.
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 well being. By addressing the entirety of the mouth in 1 procedure, we can restore the natural beauty and brilliance to your smile.
Harmonizing Your Oral Health
If one part of our mouth is not working well, this malfunction could very well lead to health problems elsewhere. As mentioned above, a malocclusion, or a misalignment of the jaw, can result in reduced bite strength and tooth decay, and these in turn could lead to other complications. Tooth decay, if left untreated, can even cause tooth loss by wearing down the various tissues that comprise human teeth and by eventually attacking the center of the tooth.
Similarly, if you are suffering from dental caries, there is a high likelihood that you are also experiencing a periodontal infection, which can cause gum and bone tissue loss. If caught early, these oral diseases can be treated; however, it’s important to seek a dentist’s expertise before they spread and cause significant damage to your oral anatomy.
Tooth loss and extensive tooth damage can also lead to deterioration in your dental health. Teeth that are atypically angled or fractured, may have some hard-to-reach surfaces and therefore, may receive less brushing and flossing time, which increases the risk of an oral infection. Furthermore, if your upper and lower arches are not fitting well together and your teeth are already significantly damaged, the risk of further fracturing and straining is higher than it would be otherwise.
An unhealthy mouth can also affect your emotional wellbeing. In our modern society, our smile is one of the most important components to our appearance and missing, damaged, or infected teeth can hurt our self-confidence and cause a loss in self-esteem. Being unhappy with your teeth can change how you interact with others, how other people interact with you, and could result in depression and deep emotional distress. Fortunately, a full-mouth reconstruction at PGA Dentistry can help brighten up your day by revitalizing your smile.
What a Full-Mouth Reconstruction Can Do For You
Through a comprehensive approach, a full-mouth reconstruction tackles every aspect of your oral health, all in the same procedure. At our Palm Beach Gardens, FL office, we use cutting-edge computer imaging technology to build a precise digital impression of your mouth, which we will use to design an effective and multidimensional treatment plan that addresses your oral health as a whole. Through a combination of treatments we can eliminate your dental pain and help your smile regain its lost luster.
Each patient has a unique oral anatomy and an exclusive set of dental health care issues. As such, no two full-mouth rehabilitations will be the same; the combinations of treatments will change depending on each person’s specific dental needs. Generally speaking, at PGA Dentistry we like to confront the higher priority health risks first. This may include, for instance, periodontal and Root Canal Therapy to eliminate gum disease and tooth decay, respectively. If the patient has suffered from bone loss, either as a result of a periodontal infection or because of tooth loss, we may also perform a bone graft. Once the mouth has healed from these initial treatments, we can then use Dental Implants, removable dentures, or dental bridges to replace lost teeth, while damaged teeth can be repaired with natural-looking Porcelain Veneers.
Does visiting the dentist make you feel nervous or anxious? 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. Our patients can benefit from luxuries like aromatherapy, massage chairs, and silent hand pieces. Additionally, Dr. Ajmo is 1 of a small number of South Florida dentists who specializes in Sedation Therapy, which will keep you calm and awake during the procedure. Expertly monitored by Dr. Ajmo and his elite staff, oral conscious sedation is safe, effective, and extremely popular amongst our patients.
