Learn About Dental Implants in Honolulu, HI
If you have one or more missing teeth, dental implants can restore your smile to its fullest function. At the Waikiki dental office of Dr. Stephen R. Ho, we offer premium quality dental implants that are crafted right here in the United States. We work with local and California-based labs to provide our patients with the finest dental implants and restorations available today.
Advantages of Dental Implants
Dr. Ho uses Nobel BioCare, Biomet 3i, and Ankylos implants, which are renowned for their performance and durability. Not only does our dental office place the implants, we create aesthetic prosthetics and will restore them if ever needed. Here are just some of the benefits our patients experience when they choose dental implants:
- The replacement of one or more missing teeth without compromising surrounding teeth
- Increased self-confidence
- Freedom to eat favorite foods with no restrictions
- Stability for partial or full dentures — no more slipping and no adhesive required
- A younger look; implants support the facial structure to prevent sagging
- Restoration of proper chewing and speech
In addition to traditional dental implants, Dr. Ho and his experienced, friendly staff also offer mini implants. Mini implants are a faster-healing option for patients with less bone mass or those who want to support removable dentures.
Are Dental Implants Right for You?
If you’re interested in traditional or mini dental implants, the first step is a consultation. A comprehensive dental exam will determine whether or not implants are a good choice for you. Implants can be used to support the following types of replacement teeth:
- Single crowns
- Partial and Full Upper and Lower Dentures
Whether you have one missing tooth or more than one, implants can make all the difference in your smile. Dental implants are usually crafted from ultra-durable titanium and placed directly in the jaw bone; the bone heals around the implant for unparalleled stability. After the implants are placed and allowed to heal for a few weeks, replacement teeth are added.
Invest in Your Smile
Dental implants are an investment in better oral health, a more beautiful smile, and an improved quality of life. Missing teeth compromise your appearance and can even cause dental health issues, and traditional dentures come with problems of their own. Replacement teeth secured with dental implants look and feel natural — often for a lifetime! Dental implants are designed to offer superior performance for many years.
