What Are Dental Implants? by Dr. Ajmo

Have you lost a tooth to decay, injury, or trauma? Are your smile and confidence suffering? Dr. Jay Ajmo can help. At PGA Dentistry we pride ourselves on the many teeth restorative procedures we offer for our patients. The implant treatments we offer include Prettau Bridges, single-tooth, multiple-tooth, full arch, and mini dental implants at their Palm Beach Gardens office to replace missing teeth.

​A dental implant is a small, yet durable titanium screw, surgically placed in your jawbone to stand in for your missing tooth root. Once implanted, the screw is restored using tooth-colored restorations called dental crowns. Implants are an excellent way to replace your teeth, as they feel, function, and look almost exactly like a natural tooth. To schedule a consultation with our expert implantologist, contact our state-of-the-art practice today.

Understanding the Procedure

Replacing teeth with dental implants can be done quickly and carefully at PGA Dentistry. Your procedure will begin with a comprehensive consultation to determine your candidacy for dental implants. Our Palm Beach Gardens team is incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly and will help answer any questions you may have about the treatment. Dr. Ajmo will discuss with you your options for anesthesia and sedation to help keep you comfortable during your appointment.

A traditional dental implant procedure involves gently inserting the titanium screw into your jawbone. Because it takes a few weeks for your bone and the implant to properly fuse, or osseointegrated, a temporary crown will be placed on the implant to maintain the aesthetics of your smile.

Once your permanent restoration has been crafted by our highly skilled dental laboratory technicians and osseointegration is complete, the temporary crown will be removed and replaced with the more permanent tooth. Each crown we place is custom-designed to match your smile's shape and color, as well as accent your facial features.

We will invite you back for a follow-up appointment a few weeks later to check the healing progress of your gums and your new smile.

Once you lose a tooth, your smile begins to shift; your existing teeth can move out of place, your soft-tissue and jawbone can deteriorate, and the gap left in your gums can harbor disease-causing bacteria. Replacing your tooth with a dental implant not only supports your jaw and the rest of your teeth, it makes it much easier to brush and floss to protect against plaque and bacterial buildup. A missing tooth can make it difficult to chew, eat, and speak normally, but dental implants make your smile whole again, to make those everyday functions easy and natural. Maybe your confident smile has been tarnished by an unwanted gap. Boost your self-esteem and express yourself with pride by replacing your teeth with a dental implant. The benefits you can experience from this procedure are limitless, and Dr. Ajmo's renowned expertise and success can help you enjoy them.

Why Dental Implants

In addition to dental implants having many benefits, many of our patients wonder why they should choose dental implants over the cheaper methods such as dentures and dental bridges. Dental implants offer a permanent tooth replacement that looks and feels natural.
