Dental Impants and Teeth Fixing

by Dr. Michael Dang

Dental implants are a modern and effective way to replace missing teeth and restore the function and beauty of your mouth.

Dental implants are comprised of two parts: a titanium screw that replaces the root of the tooth and an implant restoration (usually a crown, bridge, or denture) that replaces the visible portion of the tooth.

Dental implants, when placed, can effectively restore stability, strength, support, and resilience to the jaw and mouth. At our Honolulu dental practice, we use Nobel Biocare implants for optimal results.

Dental implants are placed over several visits to our office during the course of six to eight months.

First, the titanium implant post and anchor are surgically placed in either the lower or upper jawbone. Over the next several months, the bone will fuse with the titanium implant in order to restore security and stability.

After the implant has fused with the jawbone and your mouth has healed, your implant restoration will be placed on top of the post and anchor for optimal cosmetic and functional results.

The implants are placed surgically on the upper and lower jawbone of your teeth. When complete, your dental implant will look and feel like a natural part of your smile.

We may recommend dental implants for one or more of the following reasons:

To replace one or more missing teeth
To ease and solve bite problems or joint pain caused by shifting teeth
To restore your chewing, speech, and digestive functions
To prevent loss of facial volume
To lend support to a bridge or denture
To enhance the natural beauty of your smile

We invite you to give our Honolulu dental practice a call at (808) 596-5268 to learn more about the benefits of dental implants. We will be happy to help you learn how dental implants can provide you with a complete, functional and beautiful smile.
