Your at-home oral hygiene regimen will be evaluated by our dentists and hygienists at Green Bay Smiles, and they will offer suggestions on how to make it better. Call our office at 920-339-9013 to make an appointment with Dr. Aaron Bushong to discuss dental hygiene in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Our staff puts a lot of effort into enhancing your dental health while you are a patient with us. However, it is crucial that you maintain good dental hygiene at home to continue caring for your smile. Numerous routines and practices that you may adopt to maintain good dental hygiene can keep your smile healthy and radiant. To maintain the healthiest possible state of your smile, our dentist advises that you take the following simple actions:
- Brush your teeth after each meal or at least twice a day. We encourage you to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a toothpaste that includes fluoride.
- Floss at least once every day. The most important time to floss is just before you go to sleep at night.
- Eat a balanced diet. Limiting your intake of very sugary and acidic foods can help to prevent tooth decay.
- Maintain your regular visits to the dentist every six months. During these visits, we will provide a professional teeth cleaning and a thorough dental exam to make certain we provide any needed preventive or restorative treatments.
When you visit our dentist and staff, we will discuss your dental hygiene practices with you and provide any extra information you may need to take further efforts to improve your oral health. We invite you to contact or come by our office now to learn more about dental hygiene and to set up your next appointment.
Gum Disease Treatment
You might have periodontal disease if your gums bleed when you brush or floss! In order to manage the dangerous germs in your mouth and start restoring a healthy smile, Dr. Aaron Bushong provides gum disease therapy. To arrange a consultation with one of our experienced dentists and learn more about gum disease treatment in Green Bay, Wisconsin, call Green Bay Smiles at 920-339-9013 right away.
Periodontal disease, often known as gum disease, is a progressive disorder mostly brought on by bacteria present in plaque. Infected and inflamed gum tissues from the bacteria can eventually cause the gums to tear away from the teeth if left untreated. Gum tissue recession, tooth loss, and bone loss are all possible consequences of untreated periodontal disease.
You might have periodontal disease if your gums are swollen, red, sensitive, or bleed easily. Gum disease also frequently causes loose teeth, difficult chewing, ongoing poor breath, and receding gums, which make your teeth appear longer than they should. Our dentist and staff will be able to tell if you have periodontal disease after an examination at our clinic.
Depending on your individual dental requirements, your gum disease will be treated. Our dentist may advise more professional cleanings, better at-home oral hygiene, antibiotic therapy, scaling and root planing (deep cleanings), or gum surgery, depending on the severity of the condition. We work to stop the spread of the disease and assist you in regaining your oral health. We encourage you to contact or drop by our office soon if you would like additional details on periodontal therapy. We are eager to take care of your smile!
General & family dentistry
Our dentists can provide you a personalized night guard if you suffer from bruxism, or teeth grinding, to keep your teeth safe while you sleep. Night guards are made with particular attention to comfort and breathing accessibility. Call Green Bay Smiles at 920-339-9013 right away to make an appointment with Dr. Aaron Bushong and to find out more about night guards in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
A unique kind of mouth guard called a night guard is used to treat bruxism, or teeth clenching and grinding. In order to avoid teeth grinding while you sleep and preserve your teeth from harm, a night guard may be advised if your dentist suspects that you suffer from bruxism. Due to the fact that bruxism often happens when people are sleeping, many sufferers are unaware of the disease. Common indications of teeth clenching and grinding at night include:
- Chronic jaw pain, facial pain, and ear pain
- Awakening with a tired or tight feeling in the jaw
- Frequent tension headaches and migraines
- Excessive tooth wear, leading to chipped, flattened, cracked, or very worn teeth
- Extremely worn tooth enamel, exposing the inner layers of the tooth
- Indentations on the side of the tongue
- Increased tooth sensitivity
If you exhibit bruxism symptoms, a personalized night guard might be helpful. You will be able to sleep soundly while your smile is protected thanks to the specific fit and effectiveness of our night guard. To learn more about night guards and how we can stop teeth grinding, we cordially welcome you to get in touch with us right away. We are committed to giving your smile the best treatment possible.
From routine tooth extractions to the treatment of sleep apnea, Dr. Aaron Bushong provides oral surgery to treat a range of ailments. In order to determine which kind of oral surgery is appropriate for you, we will carefully examine your mouth during your appointment at Green Bay Smiles. We will also go over your available treatment choices with you. To learn more about oral surgery in Green Bay, Wisconsin, or to schedule a consultation with one of our skilled dentists, call our office at 920-339-9013.
Several surgical dental procedures fall under the category of oral surgery. Enhancing the function, health, and look of your smile and the supporting structures, such as your jaw, is the aim of oral surgery. We aim to offer the most conservative care feasible in many situations. However, in order to treat some diseases and enhance your oral and general health, oral surgery may be required. Dental surgery might involve:
- Tooth extraction (for teeth that are decayed, damaged, or infected to the point that an effective restoration is impossible)
- Wisdom teeth removal (for wisdom teeth that are impacted or have grown in at an incorrect angle)
- Jaw surgery (to treat a TMJ disorder, to correct uneven jaw growth, or to improve the fit of dentures)
- Bone grafts (to increase bone density and/or to improve the chances for a successful dental implant)
While we do do some oral surgery procedures in-house, we also collaborate closely with other specialists and oral surgeons in the area to give you the superior outcomes you deserve. If oral surgery is the best possible treatment option for you, our dentist will carefully assess your smile and your dental needs.
Your oral surgery will be performed as comfortably as possible. To arrange your personal appointment and learn more about oral surgery, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us right away!
Sleep Apnea Treatment
In order to help you sleep better at night and improve your dental and general health, Green Bay Smiles offers sleep apnea treatment. Many people have visited us to learn the reason behind their snoring, lack of sleep, and sleep apnea. To help manage this issue, we have a variety of treatment choices, and our dentists will work with you to choose the one that will be most helpful. Call us at 920-339-9013 right away to set up your appointment with Dr. Aaron Bushong and to learn more about sleep apnea treatment in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
A sleep disorder called sleep apnea is characterized by pauses and disturbances in breathing while you’re asleep. Each night, there may be dozens of these pauses. When the soft tissues in your throat or your tongue collapse or roll back to restrict the airway, it results in obstructive sleep apnea. When left untreated, sleep apnea can lead to a number of grave illnesses, including heart disease, high blood pressure, and liver issues.
Common sleep apnea symptoms include:
- Extreme daytime drowsiness
- Irritability and personality changes
- A dry or sore throat upon waking up
- Frequent headaches in the morning
Depending on the severity of your disease, our office offers a variety of therapies. Our dentists may advise a CPAP machine or an oral appliance to fit over your teeth and keep your airways open if you have mild to moderate sleep apnea. In more severe cases, we might advise oral surgery like Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP), which involves surgically removing the extra tissues from your upper mouth and throat.
Please get in touch with our office right away for additional details on sleep apnea treatment and to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced dentists.
TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders (TMD) can significantly annoy your jaw during the course of the day. Patients with this illness frequently express worries about their jaw snapping, clenching, discomfort, dislocation, or lockjaw. Our dentists can offer treatments to ease your pain and discomfort if you have a TMJ or TMD issue and assist you in regaining a healthy jaw function. To schedule a consultation with Drs. Aaron Bushong and Beau Schneiss and to learn more about TMJ and TMD treatments, call Green Bay Smiles at 920-339-9013.
The joint that joins the lower jaw to the rest of the skull is called the temporomandibular joint, or TMJ. TMJ problem, also known as TMD, is referred to by the abbreviation “TMJ” and develops when the jaw joint is overworked, damaged, or out of place. Stress, bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching), temporomandibular joint arthritis, trauma and damage to the head, neck, or jaw, and other conditions can all contribute to TMJ disease.
You may suffer from TMD if you experience frequent jaw pain or facial pain. TMJ disorders may also cause:
- Grinding, clicking, or popping sounds in the jaw when you open and close your mouth
- Inability to open your mouth wide to speak, yawn, or chew
- A locked or stuck jaw
- Pain when chewing and biting
- Pain in the neck, shoulders, or ears
- Frequent headaches
Our dentist can assist you in identifying the disorder’s cause and advising the best course of action. Your condition’s severity and cause will determine your course of treatment. Treatment options include exercises to relax the jaw and face, dietary adjustments, restorative dental procedures, a mouth guard or night guard, or jaw surgery. We invite you to get in touch with us right away to learn more about TMJ/TMD treatment and to arrange a consultation with our dentist.
If your tooth has significant decay, is fractured, or has other problems, our dentists may suggest extraction. Tooth extractions are commonly necessary when a tooth is too badly damaged to be repaired. A wisdom tooth extraction may also be suggested in order to get rid of it. To learn more about tooth extractions in Green Bay, Wisconsin, or to arrange a consultation with Dr. Aaron Bushong, call Green Bay Smiles at 920-339-9013 right away.
A tooth extraction is the act of removing a tooth. While we always aim to avoid the need for tooth extraction, there are a few issues that can make it the ideal solution for restoring the health and functionality of your smile. To restore the health, beauty, and functionality of your smile, we are happy to provide you with one of our top-notch tooth replacement operations.
Several conditions may necessitate tooth extraction. Among these are:
- Severe infection that has destroyed a significant portion of the tooth and supporting bone structure
- Serious decay that has damaged a tooth beyond repair, making a successful restoration impossible
- Crowding caused by too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth
Our dentist takes great care and competence when extracting a tooth in order to make your dental operation as painless and comfortable as feasible. You will also be given thorough post-treatment care instructions so you can properly take care of your smile as it heals. For additional information and to schedule your personalized consultation, we strongly encourage you to contact or visit our friendly dentist office right now. We’re committed to improving your smile!
