Types of Dental Implants:

A dental implant is an artificial tooth used to replace a natural tooth. As new technologies and information are discovered and revealed, dentists have been able to enhance the usefulness of implants. With new implant techniques, our Green Bay dentists are able to provide a wide range of dental implant solutions to those in and around Green Bay. Different types of implants include:

  • Single Tooth Replacement – A single implant is inserted into the bone to replace the root of a tooth.
  • Multiple Tooth Replacement – Implant teeth can be utilized to support a bridge for when you are missing multiple teeth.
  • Implant-Supported Overdentures – Implants can be used to support dentures, making it more comfortable to wear.

How Dental Implants Work

Our Green Bay dentists place dental Implants in the jawbone to replace missing teeth, to help with supporting dental bridges, or to hold dentures in place. After a few months, the implants will heal and integrate with the actual jawbone. Once it heals, a crown that mimics the missing tooth will be placed on top of the implant. This can enhance how your mouth functions and its overall appearance.

Dental Implants Maintenance & Care:

After receiving dental implants in our Green Bay office, our dentists recommend maintaining proper oral hygiene. Improper oral care can lead to swelling of the gums and/or cause your jaw to recede. A jaw that recedes can weaken the newly placed implant and make it necessary to get a new one. After receiving the implant, we recommend that you come into our Green Bay dentistry office at least twice a year so that we can evaluate the health or your teeth and implants.

One thing that has not changed during this time is our commitment to the safety of you and our staff.

You may have noticed infection control has always been a top priority at our practice. Our established processes ensure you receive care that is both safe and comfortable. The COVID-19 pandemic is not the first contagious illness to have circulated our country, nor will it be the last. Over the lifetime of our practice we have successfully prevented the transmission of many infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, Swine flu, H1N1, MERS, SARS in addition to our annual “flu season.” Furthermore, hepatitis in its many forms, HPV, herpes, etc. are all part of our everyday lives as your dental care team.

In addition to our standard and universal precautions we want to tell you of additional infection control procedures we have implemented. We follow the daily updates and recommendations of the American Dental Association, the CDC, and OSHA. You may notice the following changes at your next appointment:

  • ⦿ Our office will do a brief but thorough screening process prior to arriving at our office and when you arrive including taking your temperature.
  • ⦿ We have hand sanitizer present throughout our office including at the reception area when you enter and exit and ask that you please use it.
  • ⦿ We have removed difficult to clean items from our waiting rooms like magazines, children’s toys, etc.
  • ⦿ Social distancing will be considered as we allow increased space in our waiting room and the option to wait in your vehicle prior to your appointment.
  • ⦿ We request you please bring a mask for yourself to wear in our waiting room.
  • ⦿ Our staff will be wearing personal protective equipment at the highest available level which may include wearing masks and face shields for the entirety of your visit.
  • ⦿ We have installed multiple Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization Systems in our office which has proven very effective at safely filtering air within our office and killing many pathogens including SARS and other versions of coronaviruses.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you have regarding the steps we take to ensure the safety of everyone in our office. Thank you for being our patient and we look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors, and friends.
