In haste and hurry of day-to-day life, don’t wait until you’re enduring oral pain, tooth sensitivity, or impaired chewing and speaking ability before seeking a dentist’s care. Teeth don’t heal naturally, so a dentist’s care is necessary. Dr. Jay Ajmo excels at performing full mouth reconstructions for patients with several oral health issues. Full mouth reconstruction comprises one or more restorative dentistry procedures available at our Palm Beach Gardens practice.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cover created to restore a tooth that has been damaged by trauma, severe decay or infection. Dr. Ajmo provides patients with all-ceramic E-Max® dental crowns, which are known for increased strength and durability as well as enhanced esthetics. These crowns look just like a natural tooth, so your crown will blend beautifully with your other teeth. Your weakened tooth will be restored to full function, so it won’t impair your ability to enjoy a full menu of normal foods.
Prettau bridges have been a popular treatment option for edentulous patients in Europe for well over a decade. However, this innovative dental implant prosthetic has only become available in the United States within the last few years, and the PGA Dentistry is the only dental practice in South Florida or The Palm Beaches to offer it. Prettau bridges refer to an implant-secured partial denture that is fabricated using zirconia, an ultra-strong, biocompatible type of dental material. Zirconia will not chip, crack, or scratch, and it is stain resistant. This means that your new smile will continue to look new for years.
Your smile is a natural work of art that depends upon every detail of your mouth’s appearance. Sometimes, however, nature needs a little assistance from another artisan. If your smile appears “gummy,” your teeth may not be too small. Perhaps you have too much gum tissue. In cases like this, Dr. Ajmo may use laser dentistry to gently correct visually imbalanced gum tissue. He will artistically sculpt your gums around your teeth to create a pleasing smile. Patients experience little or no bleeding with laser dentistry and healing is usually quite prompt. Learn more about laser dentistry.
For many patients, dentures are associated with embarrassing slips and the frustration that arises when you can’t enjoy your favorite foods. Luckily, modern dentures offer a lightweight design, precision fit, and better aesthetics than the dentures of days past. Dr. Ajmo is trained to design and place traditional removable dentures, as well as dentures secured by dental implants and mini implants.
Missing teeth can have a profoundly negative impact on overall health. People with one or several missing teeth experience difficulty biting and chewing certain foods, and forming the sounds required for normal speech. People with no remaining teeth may suffer from poor nutrition, and suffer from the poor general health associated with malnutrition. Dental implants provide a secure, long-lasting solution for missing teeth. Dr. Ajmo has received advanced training in all phases of dental implant placement, and he has helped hundreds of patients enjoy renewed confidence, restored function, and a more youthful appearance with dental implants.
