When dental implants hold your crown, bridge, or denture in place, it's almost like having your natural teeth back.
It goes beyond function. Implants stop the jawbone recession that follows tooth loss, a benefit no other solution provides.
Sweet Tooth Dental in Kailua-Kona, HI, uses the latest in implant technology for natural-looking and long-lasting results.

How a Dental Implant Is Placed
A Closer Look at Dental Implants
Dental implant-supported restorations are the most lifelike solutions for missing teeth and the only dentistry method that can replace an entire tooth from root to crown. An implant-supported restoration is made up of three parts: the implant, which is a threaded titanium post that acts as the tooth root; a connector piece called an abutment; and the tooth restoration.
After the titanium implant has successfully fused with the bone and is fitted with the other two parts, the replacement tooth looks and functions just like your natural teeth. Implants can be used to support a variety of restorations, from an individual tooth crown to a full-arch denture.
Are You Ready to Smile Again?
We all want to share a beautiful smile and enjoy the foods we love, but there's more than vanity at stake when it comes to replacing missing teeth. Dental implants not only restore your smile, but also help you maintain a strong jawbone and avoid more costly dental care in the future. No other tooth replacement solution provides these priceless benefits.
We invite you to request a consultation with Dr. Oka, a native of Hawaii who has been offering exceptional dental care at Sweet Tooth Dental in Kailua-Kona for more than two decades. Each member of our team is personally invested in your well-being. For us, patients aren't just patients, they are ohana. Call us today:

Introducing All-on-4® A Modern Approach to Implant Dentures
All-on-4 is an implant denture placement method that allows many patients who would otherwise need bone grafts to receive treatment. As the name suggests, All-on-4 uses just four implants to secure a denture. The two posterior implants are placed at an angle that maximizes contact with the existing bone tissue. Need a little extra support for your implants? Dr. Oka can modify treatment into All-on-6 or All-on-X to meet your needs.
If you have a sensitive gag reflex or are anxious when visiting the dentist, we offer sedation dentistry to help you feel at ease.
