Missing teeth can adversely impact the way you eat, smile, laugh, and talk. This predicament will also begin to affect your health and appearance before long, adding years to your look, while subtracting them from your life expectancy.
That’s why our Honolulu, Hawaii dental office offers great modern solutions to this age old problem. One of our very best treatments for adult tooth loss is a procedure involving dental implants. Dental implants can be called upon to replace single missing teeth, large gaps of missing teeth, and entire arches of missing teeth.

Regain Your Biting Power With Dental Implants
Here’s some good news for you: dental implants nearly match the bite force of your natural teeth, so you can eat whatever you want, whenever you want, and you’ll never have to fret about your teeth slipping and sliding around or falling out altogether like dentures sometimes will. This treatment will allow you to continue eating a balanced diet, and living a confident lifestyle.
By contrast, most of the patients we see who are living with removable dentures have to worry about eating foods like pizza, corn, steak, deli sandwiches, and raw fruits and vegetables. And they have their share of embarrassing moments related to impaired speech, loose smiles, and inability to share intimate times with the ones they love.
Dental Implants Boost Your Looks
Tooth loss makes you look and feel older. But this isn’t just your imagination. To be sure, once the teeth have been lost, the jawbone and face will literally begin to shift shape.
This occurs as the jawbone is in the process of receding. During this time you’ll take on a “sunken in” appearance in the face. Fortunately, our dental implants will prevent the jawbone from further receding and will restore to you a more youthful and vibrant appearance overall.
Implants Are Built To Last
As far as replacement teeth go, implants are incredibly lifelike and durable. They really are the strongest fix you’re likely to find. But the advantage to them not being real teeth is that they do not get cavities and they can just about last forever with proper oral care.
You Have Dental Implants Options
Around here, we primarily make use of two distinct types of dental implants: traditional dental implants and mini dental implants. The mini dental implants (surprise, surprise) are smaller in diameter. They perfect for patients who have jawbone recession and, as such, are never going to be candidates for traditional dental implants. During your consultation, we’ll be able to determine which style is best suited to your current situation.
