Understanding the Procedure
One of the most important aspects of your dental implant procedure is the Initial consultation. In addition to determining whether you are a candidate for implant-supported dentures, this appointment builds the foundation of your customized treatment, detailing each aspect of your care to provide you with the most successful results.
If you suffer from dental anxiety or wish to make your experience a little less stressful, PGA Dentistry also provides IV and oral conscious sedation.
Guided by each of your needs, Dr. Ajmo will masterfully sculpt your new denture to fit comfortably on your gums and accent your other facial features. Our highly acclaimed dental laboratory is located in Palm Beach Gardens, where your implant-supported dentures will be fabricated. While your dental implants heal, we will fit you with a temporary restoration to maintain the aesthetics of your smile; after a few months, your permanent restoration will be placed.
On the day of your procedure, we will administer anesthetic and give you time to get comfortable. Dr. Ajmo will gently place the small titanium implants into your jawbone, where they will act as an anchor for your dentures. Next, the process of osseointegration, the fusing of the implant to the bone, begins. Your implants will heal and become secure extensions of your jawbone; artificial tooth roots. Finally, your dentures will be locked into place, and you will be on your way with a brand new smile.
The Oral Health Benefits
Removable dentures can trap harmful bacteria against your gums and raise your risk for periodontal disease. Traditional Dentures don’t protect against the resorption, or deterioration, of your jawbone, but implant-supported dentures integrate with your jaw to maintain the structure of the bone and the health of your mouth. The small titanium screws are incredibly durable, and if properly cared for, your new smile could last the rest of your lifetime. The high-quality dentures Dr. Ajmo uses make chewing, eating, and speaking significantly easier than with removable appliances. Losing all of your teeth can be detrimental to your oral health, but with implant-supported dentures, you can rebuild your smile from the root up.
The Aesthetic Benefits
Your smile is a great way to express yourself and to make a great first impression. Removable dentures can slip or affect your speech. If you feel unconfident or embarrassed about the appearance of your smile or worry about your teeth slipping, it may be difficult to speak with confidence. As soon as you leave our office with your new smile, you can enjoy a rejuvenated sense of self-assurance and pride.
