A full mouth reconstruction restores the balance and harmony to your dental health by concurrently addressing a number of oral health problems. Commonly treated complications include tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. There are a number of individual treatments that are frequently combined just by their nature and the areas of your oral anatomy they target. Below, we review some of the various treatment options which are often combined by our Palm Beach Gardens, FL patients.
As aforementioned, two dental infections that can be treated with a full mouth reconstruction include gum disease and tooth decay. If these infections are allowed to spread, they can cause significant damage. These adverse conditions can even result in tooth loss if the decay or tissue loss is sufficiently severe. Persons who suffer from an extensive periodontal infection or widespread decay of the teeth may, therefore, find that they will need a mixture of treatments that address both issues.
Tooth-colored fillings can be used to treat cavities resulting from tooth decay. After removing the demineralized, or decayed, tissue, this area can be replaced with a porcelain filling. At PGA Dentistry we use porcelain rather than silver or mercury amalgam; porcelain is both aesthetically superior to and much healthier than the aforementioned alternatives.
Missing teeth, in turn, 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 are closely matched in color, size, and shape to your natural teeth.

Sharon was lost most of her teeth due to failure of her old crowns. She was extremely fearful of dentists and wanted a dentist who could provide her with permanent implant options under sedation. After dental reconstruction Sharon can smile with confidence and never worry about wearing dentures. "I have always suffered with major dental problems and wanted a special dentist who could give me a smile I'd be proud of. I'm so thankful I found the right doctor to help me." - SHARON
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 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 cutting edge solution to significant gum disease, can repair lost gum and bone tissue. One benefit of this treatment that’s well worth taking into consideration is the fact that it is much less intrusive than alternative methods of soft tissue augmentation.
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. Dr. Ajmo sympathizes with his patients and knows where they’re coming from. IV sedation allows you to experience the treatment in blissful comfort; you’ll be fully conscious and able to fully communicate during the procedure, but any soreness or discomfort should be minimal or non-existent.
