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.
