Dental Implants Are Like 'Growing' New Teeth!

Lost teeth can cause bigger problems than you might imagine. The open space allows other teeth to shift and move, which can alter your bite. The tooth no longer stimulates jaw bone, so the bone begins to deteriorate. Chewing, speech, and appearance can all be affected with missing teeth.

That’s why the ideal missing tooth replacement is a dental implant. Whether you’re missing a front tooth, molar tooth, side tooth or where you need the most stability, in the back, implants can help you recapture a healthy and beautiful smile.

Unlike dentures and bridges, which rest on top of the gums, dental implants are placed under the gums. The crown placed on an implant can look just as real as the original, because it comes through the gums – so it’s like growing a new tooth!

Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth or several teeth. Even if you have no teeth, you can benefit from these permanent false teeth. Imagine replacing your dentures with teeth that don’t move around when you talk! And of course implants are the best permanent teeth replacement option and don’t need to be taken out at night.

Dr. Ha handles the entire dental implant process, beginning with the placement of the implant post all the way through crown fabrication. So there’s no need to be referred to another office. He is also skilled in bone grafting, sinus lift, and tissue grafting if these are needed to produce the optimal outcome.

Three-Dimensional Dentistry

3-D cone beam CT digital imaging technology is one of the latest advances in dentistry and is used to provide greater accuracy and precision with implant placement. We are excited to soon be one of the first practices in our area to provide this service. Think of this as a three-dimensional X-ray that is FAR more accurate than traditional X-ray equipment, taking much less time and doing it with far less radiation exposure. Ultra cone beam images present an outstanding advantage when diagnosing patients and evaluating treatment options.

Success Rate of Dental Implants:

Dental implants have an impressive success rate, with studies reporting success rates of 95% or higher. Factors that contribute to the success of dental implants include proper patient selection, adequate bone quantity and quality, meticulous surgical technique, and adherence to post-operative care instructions. Regular dental visits and maintaining good oral hygiene practices are also essential for long-term success.

Your smile, perfected through understanding.

Are there any age restrictions for getting dental implants?

Age is not a major factor; overall health and bone density matter more. Our Honolulu Smile Designs team evaluates each patient individually to determine candidacy based on their unique oral health situation.

What if I have gum disease or bone loss?

We offer solutions! Our skilled professionals can address gum disease and perform bone grafts to create a suitable foundation for implants. Schedule a consultation to discuss your options.

Can implants replace removable dentures?

Absolutely! Implants can secure dentures, enhancing stability and comfort. Enjoy unrestricted eating and speaking without the worry of dentures slipping.

Will I need to go without teeth during the process?

No need to worry. Our Honolulu Smile Designs team ensures you never go toothless. Temporary restorations can be provided, allowing you to maintain your confidence throughout the implant process.

Is smoking a barrier to getting implants?

While smoking can impact healing, it doesn’t necessarily disqualify you. Quitting or reducing smoking before and after the procedure significantly improves implant success.

How do I schedule a consultation?

Booking a consultation at Honolulu Smile Designs is easy! You can call our office or use our online appointment request form to choose a convenient date and time for your visit.

Our Patient Say the Nicest Things

Here’s what our happy patients say about us.

Staff are always very friendly and dependable in their healthcare. Top of the line equipment and they know what they're talking about.

From stepping into the office, it and the staff were very welcoming. Had an 11am appointment and there was no waiting. At 11, they were calling me in. Karen was very nice and professional taking pictures. During the exam, I suddenly felt very "out of sorts" and had to leave to get some air. Shawn came out to make sure I was OK and was very caring and we appreciated her kindness and understanding. Mahalo HSD!

5/5

There is no better dentist. I have never been to this location, but saw him at a previous practice. Dr. Ha is the perfect dentist. I had severe dental anxiety which caused me to neglect my teeth health, needed a root canal. He made me stop hating the dentist. He is caring, funny, has amazing banter and is just genuinely an awesome dude. Since he moved practices I’ve had no one that can possibly compare to him. Do yourself a favor and choose him for your dental care. I wish I still could.

5/5

We are a dental technology and continuing education provider for dental professionals on a global level. We have worked with over 15,000 dentists over the last 2 decades and intimately know the level of care Dr. Ha provides for his patients. He makes no compromises in delivering dentistry at the highest level possible. We had the privilege of hosting him at a recent event with dental professionals where he shared his vast knowledge and expertise with fellow like minded dental professionals. Everyone was thoroughly impressed with the amount of detail he pays attention to with every single patient. We can’t recommend him highly enough for your dental care.

5/5

I had a wonderful experience at Honolulu Smile Design! Everyone was very friendly and professional. Dr. John Ha has a very proactive approach to dentistry. He took the time to answer all my question and he was able to explain it in a relatable way which made it easier to understand. I had a smile on my face from the time I got in till the time I left, I’m guessing that was all by design.

5/5

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.
