PREVENTIVE DENTISTRY MAINTAINS ORAL HEALTH
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 learn 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!
Renewing Old Dental Work
During your check-up, Dr. Ajmo will also evaluate your existing dental work for wear, leakage, or structural damage that could compromise the health of the teeth they are meant to protect. If he locates problematic restorations, Dr. Ajmo will discuss your options for replacing them. Old, unsightly metal crowns and fillings are routinely replaced with aesthetic alternatives, like porcelain crowns, inlays and onlays, or composite resin fillings. An advocate of aesthetic dentistry, Dr. Ajmo enjoys helping his patients achieve a smile that looks natural and white.
