Questions To Ask When Choosing an Implant Dentist
How Much Experience Do You Have?
You want an experienced dentist who has performed many dental implant treatments with high success rates. It’s also important that this dentist knows how to provide aesthetically pleasing results. They should have before-and-after images of their own work to show potential patients.
Dr. Ajmo has successfully placed thousands of dental implants in his Jupiter practice. He has been using the same BioHorizons Implant System for many years with a 98% average success rate. This American-made implant system has provided him and his patients with extensive benefits.
Dr. Ajmo has also performed full-mouth reconstruction treatment for patients with a wide range of needs over the last 26 years. He provides before-and-after images of his treatments for his patients, and there’s no question of how incredible the results are!
What Certifications Do You Hold?
You want a dentist who has credentials in dental implantology and cosmetics.
Dr. Ajmo has a master’s in Cosmetic Dentistry from the Rosenthal Institute for Aesthetic Dentistry. Below is a list of his other certifications and active memberships:
- International Congress of Oral Implantologists
- American Dental Implant Association
- MISCH International Implant Institute
- American Board of Oral Implantology
- American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
- American Society of Dental Anesthesiologists
Do You Offer IV Sedation?
Having a dentist who is trained in IV sedation is crucial for keeping anxious patients comfortable during treatment. Dr. Ajmo is the only cosmetic dental implantologist who offers IV sedation in Palm Beach County and most of South Florida. This means even the most fearful patients can remain relaxed throughout their implant procedure.
Dr. Ajmo and his certified team will monitor your heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation levels, and EKG during IV sedation. The State of Florida Department of Health routinely inspects our Jupiter facility for safety, organization, and quality of care. We’re proud to receive an A+ rating every time!
Do You Use In-Office CT Scan Technology?
You should look for a dentist who uses in-office CT scan technology for all implant cases. Our Jupiter facility has the latest 3D Cone Beam CT technology that we use for all dental implant treatments. The 3D CT scans let us see a three-dimensional view of each patient’s teeth, jawbones, and surrounding anatomical structures. These features are not readily available with traditional black and white x-rays.
3D CT scans also add a measure of safety since they accurately identify the vital nerves and sinus spaces we need to protect. This technology is rapidly evolving toward the standard of care in dental implantology.
Do You Have a Dedicated Surgical Suite for Implant Placement?
Nobody enjoys going to different locations for one treatment, so it’s important to find a doctor who has a dedicated surgical suite for placing implants.
Our Jupiter practice has a custom-designed private surgical suite equipped with the latest implant dentistry technology. Dr. Ajmo performs each treatment in a sterile setting with assistance from a highly trained and experienced implant team.
Do You Perform Your Implant Treatments in One Location?
Dr. Ajmo is proud to perform dental implant surgeries and restorations in his dedicated implant surgical suite. This offers you the convenience of visiting one location and having one experienced surgeon place and restore your implants. The best part is that you can rely on one doctor to give you the best results you desire.
Do You Have Options for Same-Day Implants?
A dental implant treatment typically takes about six months to a year before it’s complete. If you want quicker results, you should ask your dentist if they’re experienced in placing immediate implants and new teeth simultaneously.
Dr. Ajmo is trained and skilled in Prettau Now! Teeth the Same Day. He can safely and comfortably remove failing teeth and place dental implants in one day. This allows you to enjoy your fully restored smile after a single visit to our Jupiter facility.
Do You Offer Materials Other Than Acrylic?
It’s important to have options for the material used for your implants. Dr. Ajmo has years of postdoctoral training, giving him the latest skills and experience to perform these procedures safely and effectively. This gives you the advantage of relying on one doctor to provide what you want – a beautiful, healthy smile to show the world.
