At Manoa Dental, we are committed to every patient's long-term oral health. Our goal is to evaluate, diagnose, and treat whatever present or future problems we can see during our exam. Dr.Do and Dr.Choy analyzes three main factors, which are teeth, bite, and TMJ. They are all interrelated, and can affect each other. If there is a breakdown in one of these areas, it will eventually create an issue in another or all three. Training after dental school is imperative to know what future problems can occur.

Cosmetic dentistry has taken tremendous leaps in the last 20 years regarding techniques and materials used. We now can rejuvenate a smile without cutting down a tooth, as opposed to before where teeth would always need crowns to create your special smile. Additional training is required, so always check the qualifications of your dentist to perform these procedures. Since cosmetic dentistry is not a specialty, training and credentials are the most accurate way to determine their qualifications. Dr. Do is accredited by the premier cosmetic dentistry organization known as the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry(AACD). They maintain high standards for their members, and much higher standards for their accredited members.

Orthodontics(braces) are not just for kids anymore. It's extremely useful for cosmetic dentistry and treating Temporomandibular Joint(TMJ) disorders. Adults do take a little longer to treat than children, but overall treatment length has decreased as techniques and materials have improved over time. Patient options also include more aesthetic choices such as ceramic(tooth-colored) and clear braces depending on your final goal. It's never too late to achieve that smile or appearance you have always wanted!
