Dental Care in Honolulu HI

Importance of Dental Care

The Importance of Hygiene Visits

Having your teeth cleaned regularly, by a professional hygienist, is one of the best things you can do to stay healthy.

Plaque is soft and sticky, and even with regular brushing some of it gets left behind in the grooves and pockets of your teeth and gums. If it’s not removed, plaque hardens into tartar, which is beyond the scope of your typical toothbrush and floss.

Tartar develops below the gumline as well as on the surface of your teeth, posing serious problems within your mouth – decay and even gum disease. Recent research shows an unquestionable link between untreated gum disease and other serious conditions such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.

Which means having your teeth cleaned is one of the most important reasons to visit your dentist!

Saving Hopeless Teeth

Missing teeth can create big issues for your dental health. A root canal can save teeth with roots that have been damaged or infected, a situation that used to require extraction.

A root canal is a procedure that fixes a tooth by removing the pulp chamber and filling the space with a filling material.

This is often required when dental decay reaches the nerve of the tooth (or the tooth has become infected), and beyond the scope of a simple filling. At Honolulu Smile Design, we are skilled in advanced root canal therapy.

The root canal has earned an undeserved reputation as something to be avoided. However, with modern anesthetics and technology, root canals are actually a manageable form of treatment.

We Care About Kids!

We aim to make our young patients (ages 10 and up) feel comfortable and enjoy themselves. You can rest assured your child will receive the latest advancements in children’s dentistry, such as dental sealants, which are an excellent way to prevent cavities in the deep grooves on their back teeth. All care is provided with caring, thoughtfulness, and compassion. We encourage proper dental care habits in children and enjoy showing them how to keep their teeth healthy for a lifetime.

Senior Dental Care is Different

Our teeth are as susceptible to the aging process as the rest of our bodies. Gum disease and root decay are more prevalent in seniors. Daily cleaning and good nutrition are vital for maintaining healthy gums.

In fact, if your gums have become red, irritated, or prone to bleeding, or if your teeth have started to feel loose, please contact us immediately.In addition, aging typically means more medications. Reduced flow of saliva is sometimes a side effect of these medications.

There are simple products that can help this condition. Even your fillings can show signs of age. They can weaken or crack. Regular check-ups will allow us to stay on top of your existing fillings. Don’t forget that years of plaque buildup, as well as consuming coffee, tea, or tobacco, can make teeth appear dark. Ask us about procedures that can combat all these problems.

Solutions for Denture-Wearers

We offer natural-looking, slip-proof dentures! With a breakthrough in design and fit, we can provide a securely anchored denture plate so you no longer have to worry about the foods you eat. Your dentures won’t shift or slip. If you are a denture wearer, be sure to ask us about this. It will make your life so much easier.

Our Patient Say the Nicest Things

Here’s what our happy patients say about us.

Honolulu Smile Design is awesome! Dr. Ha and his team are professional, friendly and so organized. I’ve been to a handful of dentists (inHin and California) and Honolulu Smile Design has made me feel the most comfortable (and who can say that about a dentist?!). The scheduling process is very easy – communication is clear, easy and fast. I especially appreciate seeing one hygienist each time (Jessica!) who is very knowledgeable. Dr. Ha is very thorough, explains everything clearly and doesn’t push or sell procedures (which I’ve experienced at other dentists). And best of all everyone is so kind, nice and make the experience of going to the dentist painless.
