The Importance of Airway

Airway has always been a vital factor for growth and development. It has become more important as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) has been steadily increasing in diagnosis among patients in all areas of society. A deficient airway also has negative repercussions in children if not addressed early which can lead to delayed or underdeveloped growth. A proper consult for crooked teeth involves more than just straightening teeth, but not disturbing the natural growth pattern of a child during their adolescent years. Dr. Keri Do has treated numerous cases avoiding this scenario and is available for a consult to discuss what she can do for you at Manoa Dental.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Obstructive Sleep Apnea(OSA) can be a silent killer. It occurs while you sleep and unaware of the damaging effects it causes on your body. The symptoms include sleepiness during the day, and can lead to serious systemic conditions such as high blood pressure and heart disease. It creates theses problems by disrupting your sleep numerous times throughout the night to force your body awake and breathe in more oxygen that your body can’t provide on its own. Snoring is an extremely common precursor to this condition and could possibly be the best indicator if you have been or will suffer from OSA. Call Dr. Keri Do at Manoa Dental to discuss how she can provide treatment for you.

How to eat again with missing teeth


In Honolulu, we are a melting pot of cuisines from around the Asia-Pacific region. From fresh fish to locally grown fruits, Hawaii has a variety of culinary delights not easily available anywhere else. However, without healthy teeth, will you be able to enjoy them? Missing teeth may feel like an inconvenience to many people, but they are more detrimental than that. The loss of each tooth increases the biting force on the remaining teeth, much more than they were designed to withstand. This ultimately decreases the lifespan of those teeth through gum disease or wear leading to their loss as well. The domino effect of losing tooth after tooth not only increases the forces on the remaining teeth but also magnifies it as well. Dental implants are the perfect solution to replace missing teeth since they are just as strong as your original teeth, but allows you to chew just as easily. Dr. Malcolm Choy has trained under the most highly recognized implant surgeons in the world and is located at Manoa Dental in Honolulu, Hawaii. Call for a consult and see what are your best options.
