The more functional your mouth is throughout life, the higher your quality of life and the better your overall health. This is why Michael Miyamoto, DDS of Miyamoto Dental Design Suite Inc. in Wailuku, HI offers our patients a full array of comprehensive restorative solutions.
The loss of a single tooth can create a chain reaction of negative events in your mouth, leading to everything from uneven wear and tooth breakage to TMJ and further tooth loss. When a missing tooth is left without a restoration, adjacent teeth can begin to shift into the empty space, causing a changed bite. This is why we consider the importance of every individual tooth, and can offer multiple solutions for your needs. Our restorative treatments include:
- Dental implants
- Dental crowns (including CEREC services)
- Dentures (full and partial)
- Dental Bridges
The loss of one or more teeth is a cosmetic and a functional issue. This is why Michael Miyamoto, DDS of Miyamoto Dental Design Suite Inc. in Wailuku, HI offers our patients comprehensive restorative solutions, including convenient and effective dental bridges.
A bridge is a lot like it sounds – a span of artificial teeth meant to replace any lost to decay, disease or trauma. However, they are not only cosmetic, they are also a restorative treatment that enables you to use your mouth as fully as before the loss of the teeth. The bridge can be fixed to two natural teeth, though these will require dental crowns to ensure the natural teeth can withstand the years of use, but we can also do two implants to serve as abutments for the bridge.
If you are without teeth, whether you are missing only a few teeth on an upper or lower arch, or the entire set, you can suffer a lot of troubling consequences. Your bite changes, the jaw and gum tissue recede, and even the soft tissue of the face takes on a collapsed and aged appearance. Dentures are a fast, effective and affordable solution. We are happy to offer you full or partial dentures based on your needs, and can also provide implant supported dentures and bridges as a permanent, low-maintenance and superior solution.
We also offer our patients the option of implant retained dentures. Implant retained dentures provide many benefits including stability and an increase in confidence. The implant retained dentures can secure dentures with only 2 dental implants. We also provide the option of implant supported dentures, which permanently attach dentures with only 4-6 dental implants, for a strong and secure solution. This option takes away the fear of dentures falling out while eating or speaking. Patients can now smile, speak and chew with confidence with the help of implant supported dentures.

If you ask anyone about dental work they have had done in the past, most will say they have at least one crown. This is because dental crowns are a universally effective solution to a long list of dental issues ranging from damaged teeth to dental implants. As a superior solution, they ensure you retain your natural teeth, using them fully and without pain or discomfort. However, we have taken another step forward with dental crowns by offering CEREC. This is a technology that enables us to make your dental crowns while you wait, cutting down treatment time to a single office visit! Click here to learn more about dental crowns.
Dental implants are a remarkably beneficial technology. They allow our doctors to replace an entire missing tooth – roots and crown – ensuring your jaw and gum remain healthy and your remaining teeth stay properly aligned. Having this sort of restoration allows you to look, eat and speak naturally, and we are happy to meet with you to discuss all of our options. We can do single tooth or multi tooth implants, as well as implant dentures that can use two or more. We also offer All on 4 Implants for permanently fixed dentures.
