You take care of yourself. You get plenty of exercise and fresh air, eat right, and keep up with all your regularly scheduled wellness visits. That is all so important! But if you aren’t getting the best possible general dental care in Palm Beach Gardens your oral health may be undoing all those other health precautions you’re taking. And that’s a fact. Your mouth not only lets you speak, eat, and smile, it is also inextricably linked to the rest of your body. Here’s how:

Your gums are mucous membranes that, when healthy, protect your body from toxins. But when they themselves become infected and diseased, they are direct portals for all those bacteria and toxins to enter your body. This has led scientists, dental experts, and health-care professionals to see direct links between gum disease and:

  • Strokes
  • Heart attacks
  • Diabetic issues
  • Cancer
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Altzheimers
  • Lung disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Inflammation
  • and so much more

Your jaw and bite (the way your teeth work together) can have serious effects on your wellbeing when they are not in balance leading to all kinds of issues including:

    • Headaches (often is a trigger for migraines)
    • Upper body pain
    • Tinnitus (ringing ears)
    • Facial numbness and tingling
    • Sleep apnea
    • Jaw locking and popping
    • Difficulty eating certain foods

And those are just two of the ways your smile and body are connected and can affect your life!

Because of this, your Palm Beach Gardens general dentists at PGA dentistry puts a lot of energy into getting your preventive and general interventions just right. We care deeply about our Juno and Palm Beach Gardens general dentistry patients and support your healthy lifestyle body, smile, and spirit!

The old saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” is especially meaningful when discussing dental health. Prevention can mean the difference between addressing the earliest stages of tooth decay and having to undergo invasive restorative procedures like Root Canal Therapy. While preventive dentistry is certainly concerned with maintaining healthy, strong, functional teeth, you may be surprised to learn that the scope of preventive care includes treating the gums, the soft tissues of the inner cheeks, throat, tongue, palate, the jaw, and the temporomandibular joints (TMJs). Although Dr. Jay Ajmo is a recognized regional expert in cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry, all dental treatment must be built upon a foundation of good oral health if it is going to last. Dr. Ajmo provides comprehensive preventive dentistry at our luxurious Palm Beach Gardens dental practice. Contact Us Today to…

As plaque builds up in your mouth and on your…

As plaque builds up in your mouth and on your teeth, your risk for periodontal, or gum, disease increases. If this plaque hardens, it can develop into tartar that only professional cleaning can remove. The longer you leave these harmful buildups on your teeth, the greater the threat to your oral health. If your condition worsens to gingivitis, your gums will become red, swollen, and may bleed easily. If gingivitis is left untreated, it can advance to periodontitis, which causes your gums to pull away from your teeth to create pockets that often become infected. At this stage of gum disease, your soft-tissue and jawbone may begin to deteriorate, and complete tooth loss becomes a risk. Dr. Jay Ajmo provides periodontal treatment at his Palm Beach Gardens practice in order to improve the health and happiness of his patients. Studies…

Is your smile riddled with unattractive metal fillings? Fortunately, dental care has undergone rapid advancements over the years. Dentists used to repair teeth with dark toxic metals because they were the only option. Today, however, tooth-colored fillings made of strong porcelains blend beautifully into anyone’s smile. As a general and cosmetic dentist, Dr. Ajmo uses tooth-colored porcelain fillings to replace outdated silver/mercury amalgam fillings. This year, the Food And Drug Administration deemed amalgam fillings, which contain mercury, hazardous to children, fetuses, pregnant women, and people with mercury sensitivity. For your safety, Dr. Ajmo does not place amalgam fillings or use toxic materials that could be harmful to your overall health. Placing a tooth-colored filling is quick and easy, and we pay close attention to Patient Comfort during any procedure. If you need fillings, don’t postpone treatment. Tooth decay won’t heal…

Toothaches can range from a slight twinge when you bite down, to a dull, throbbing pain that won’t subside, even when you are using over-the-counter medication. Regardless of the severity of the discomfort you’re experiencing, you should promptly seek professional help for a toothache. Often, a toothache can be attributed to an untreated cavity or fracture, both of which can extend into the pulp at the core of your tooth. Bacteria can then invade the tooth’s core and cause infection, pressure, and pain. In cases like this, Dr. Jay Ajmo often recommends root canal treatment. Root canal treatments at our Palm Beach Gardens dental practice emphasize patient comfort by removing the source of the toothache and salvaging the healthy portions of the tooth.

There is a distinct relationship between oral health and overall health. Certain oral health disorders can increase your risk of systemic illnesses, while some chronic health conditions may increase your risk for oral disease. In some cases, the relationship is cyclical. For example, diabetics are more susceptible to gum disease, and gum disease can be a factor in developing diabetes. Attending Preventive Dental Care visits with Dr. Jay Ajmo can lead to early diagnosis of a host of oral and general health issues, giving you an opportunity for early intervention and improved overall health.
