Oral health begins as early as age one, and Michael Miyamoto, DDS of Miyamoto Dental Design Suite Inc. in Wailuku, HI encourages parents to use our children’s dentistry services from age two and up. Even this early, decay can begin and alignment can be disrupted. We have the specialized training needed for family dentistry, including children’s dentistry.
Our technologies incorporate many options to reduce discomfort or fear. Dental anxiety is often cued by less favorable experiences early in life, and our staff goes to great lengths to ensure your kids look at a visit to the dentist as a painless, fearless and totally positive experience.
Simple exams and cleanings, fluoride treatments, sealants and oral hygiene aids can all become part of your child’s oral health regimen when you get them an early start in our office.
What is the one thing that most people dread about dental fillings or treatments? While you might think it is the needles used for anesthetics, it is actually the drill. The vibration, heat and sound tend to cause mild to severe anxiety. This is why Michael Miyamoto, DDS of Miyamoto Dental Design Suite Inc. in Wailuku, HI is glad to offer laser dentistry with the BIOLASE Waterlase technologies.
Instead of the typical metal drill, our laser dentistry relies on laser powered water droplets to remove decay and other materials in a way that is more precise, faster, and without the discomforts that traditional drills can cause. Whether it is used for gum treatment, advanced cleanings, or standard cavity preparation, patients experience much better outcomes, with less bleeding, pain, or risk of damage and discomfort to surrounding teeth.
Snoring is a symptom of a rather serious health issue known as sleep apnea. This is something commonly experienced by millions of people, and few realize that they actually cease breathing many times each night, and that can harm their health over the long-term. This is why Michael Miyamoto, DDS of Miyamoto Dental Design Suite Inc. in Wailuku, HI provides sleep apnea treatment for patients diagnosed with the condition.
There are two primary forms of sleep apnea, and the most common is obstructive sleep apnea. This is when the soft tissue of your palate collapses against the back of your throat, making it impossible for air to pass. You don’t get oxygen and you struggle to breathe, and only when you jar yourself awake do you regain your breath.
Our approach to this risky condition is one of the most effective, and relies on custom made oral appliances that you can safely and comfortably wear as you sleep. These appliances realign the jaws and prevent that soft tissue from falling back against the throat. You sleep better, and experience greatly improved health.
If you experience chronic discomfort in your jaw and neck, hear unusual popping sounds when yawning or using your jaw, and have ever had your jaw lock in place, it could be that you have TMJ/TMD. This chronic issue has symptoms that include teeth grinding, ear pain, tooth damage and more. We have a very comprehensive, effective and simple way to begin addressing this harmful and painful issue. Get in touch to book an evaluation and discover if our TMJ/TMD treatment will work for you.

Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique
Gum recession is something that occurs when you have periodontal (advanced gum) disease, but is also due to aging or overly aggressive tooth brushing. It puts your teeth at risk by exposing the root structure. This is something typically addressed with the painful and invasive technique known as gum grafting. However, we offer the advanced Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique that remedies gum recession without stitches, grafting and overly long recovery periods. Find out more about this innovative option.
