HONOLULU, HI, December 19, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- If you turn on a sports channel, you may notice players wearing large mouth guards or heavy-duty helmets to protect their mouths. You may even notice that during a hockey game, some players flash smiles that contain missing teeth. We're all looking to maintain happy, healthy smiles; however, for those who play sports, dental injuries are often the most common. Even if you aren't an athlete, there are a host of other causes for losing a tooth. From dental decay to car accidents, the loss of a tooth can be stressful. If you are looking to restore your smile, then visit Dr. Wynn Okuda, who offers cosmetic dentistry in Honolulu, HI.
Dental implants are a natural way to replace missing teeth, as they have the same appearance as a real tooth. A screw, which serves the same purpose as the root of a tooth, is inserted in the jawbone. Over time, the jawbone and gums fuse around the screw, implanting it permanently. Once this occurs, an artificial tooth is then fitted over the screw to create a beautiful, gapless smile.
"This procedure is a wonderful way to replace missing teeth and restore your smile," says Dr. Okuda, who offers dental implants in Honolulu. "However, not everyone is a good candidate for dental implants. You need to have a strong immune system and proper bone density for this procedure to work."
Another advantage of dental implants is that patients don't have to worry about cavities. "It's comforting for patients who have lost teeth because of tooth decay to know that with dental implants, they no longer have to worry about the threat of cavities," says Dr. Okuda, who provides cosmetic dentistry in Honolulu, HI. However, that doesn't mean that good oral hygiene should be ignored. Dental implants can last a lifetime, but only if you properly care for them and brush regularly.
So whether you are looking to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or all of your teeth, dental implants can provide you with a smile that will last a lifetime. "Patients have been very pleased with their dental implants. They are amazed at how natural and comfortable they are," says Dr. Okuda, who offers dental implants in Honolulu. "The smile on my patients' faces proves how life-changing this procedure is."
