Personalized dental implant care you can trust.
Are you missing a tooth? Dr. Aaron Bushong provides dental implants to replace your missing teeth and restore your smile and confidence. Implants are bonded naturally to the bone to replicate your tooth root, preserving your facial structure as well as your smile. We welcome you to contact Green Bay Smiles at 920-339-9013 for more information about implants in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and to schedule your consultation with our skilled dentists.
Implants are permanent, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or all of the teeth. The implant post, which is a screw made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. This replaces the missing tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. A period of healing is then often required to allow the bone to begin to bond with the biocompatible post. Following this healing period, our dentist will place the implant restoration, or replacement tooth, which fits on top of the implant post. Depending on which teeth are missing and your personal dental needs, your implant restoration might be a dental crown, dental bridge, complete denture, or partial denture. Each implant restoration is custom made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.
Replacing a missing tooth can restore your smile to optimal health, function, and appearance. An implant is a great option for restoring your smile because the implant is designed to look, function, and feel just like your natural teeth, and with proper care, it can last a lifetime.

All-On-4® Dental Implants
For patients who are missing most or all of their teeth on one or both of their dental arches, our team at Green Bay Smiles offers All-On-4® dental implants in Green Bay, Wisconsin! This innovative system combines implants and dentures to give you a fixed, natural-looking restoration that can last a lifetime. With All-On-4®, you do not need to hide your incomplete smile any longer! Come visit our dentist, Dr. Aaron Bushong for your consultation. You can schedule your visit by calling our office at 920-339-9013.
Implants are an innovative and popular way to replace missing teeth. Because the implant post is inserted into your jawbone, your restoration is permanent and more like your natural tooth. Basic implants are designed to replace a single missing tooth; the All-On-4® system, however, is designed to replace an entire dental arch.
Full-arch replacement is new to dentistry, but the All-On-4® system has upgraded traditional implant procedures. In most treatments, a full dental arch replacement requires six to eight implants that are often placed only a few at a time. This can drag out your treatment time and cause you to wait up to 18 months to regain your complete smile. All-On-4® uses only four implants, each of which are placed at the same time, so you only need one surgery. Plus, the implants are strategically placed at an angle, which provides a safer procedure and more durable result. Once your implants are placed, our dentist can attach a restoration, such as a set of dentures, so that you can leave our office with a full smile.
Most patients are good candidates for All-On-4® implants. To learn whether this treatment is right for you, our dentist can evaluate your oral health and discuss your smile goals. We will create and review your specific treatment plan so you know what you can expect during your next few visits.
If you would like to set up your consultation for an All-On-4® treatment, we invite you to contact our practice today. We look forward to helping you rediscover your healthy, beautiful smile!
Guided Implant Placement
When receiving a dental implant, it is important that your implant post is placed in the right position, so as to increase your treatment success rate. At Green Bay Smiles, we use a computerized implant placement system to map out the placement of your implants prior to your treatments. This means that Dr. Aaron Bushong can provide more accurate and precise results so that your new implant will last longer. If you would like to learn more about how we use guided implant placement in Green Bay, Wisconsin, we invite you to contact our office at 920-339-9013 and set up an appointment with our dentist.
An implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically placed in the jawbone at the location of the missing tooth. By replacing the missing tooth root, the implant provides a stable foundation for the replacement tooth and ensures that the restoration is lasting and lifelike. After the placement of the implant post, our dentist attaches a restoration such as a dental crown, dental bridge, partial denture, or complete denture on top to fully restore your smile’s health, appearance, and function. You will be able to chew and eat comfortably, speak clearly, and smile confidently.
Our dentist and team are dedicated to providing you with the best possible care and results each time you visit our office. To accomplish this goal, we constantly update our office with the latest techniques and technology. We are pleased to offer computer-guided implant surgery, which is one of these state-of-the-art treatments. As the name suggests, this treatment utilizes computer software and computed tomography (CT) 3D imaging to aid in the placement of the implants. This helps to ensure that we achieve accurate, optimal placement for a tooth replacement that is strong and long-lasting.
For more information about computer-guided implant surgery and how we can improve your smile through advanced techniques, technology, and procedures, we invite you to contact us today. We look forward to speaking with you soon!
Are your dentures loose or uncomfortable? Do you find that your dentures often slip out of place? For patients who are tired of insufficient dentures, or for those looking to replace all the teeth in a dental arch, Green Bay Smiles offers implant-supported dentures in Green Bay, Wisconsin. With this treatment, Dr. Aaron Bushong can provide you with a set of customized dentures that are secured in place with dental implants. This means that you can regain your natural ability to speak, chew and smile without worrying about your dentures moving. Contact us today at 920-339-9013 to learn more, and to set up your consultation with our dentist.
If you are looking for a stable, lasting solution for replacing multiple missing teeth, our dentist may recommend implant-supported dentures. Implant-retained dentures are very similar in form to traditional dentures; however, they are stabilized by implants. Very often denture wearers complain that dentures become loose and “float” around the mouth, limiting their ability to eat and speak comfortably. Implant dentures are a cost-effective solution, and in many cases, we can actually retrofit an existing denture with implants.
The first step in anchoring your denture with implants is the placement. The implants, which are similar in appearance to screws, are surgically inserted into the jawbone in order to securely anchor your denture. While the specific number of implants required will depend on your individual needs, most cases require 4-6 implants per denture. Once the implants have been placed and allowed sufficient healing time, your denture is attached on top. This provides your denture with exceptional stability. In fact, many patients report that their implant-retained dentures feel and function more like their natural teeth.
For more information about implant-supported dentures and dental implants, and to schedule your next visit with our dentist, we welcome you to call or visit our office today.
Surgical Implant Placement
At Green Bay Smiles, we are pleased to offer a variety of implant treatments to help our patients restore their smiles. Dental implants are surgically placed, and our dentist and team have the experience and training necessary to perform your procedure right here in our office. If you are interested in replacing your missing teeth with implants in Green Bay, Wisconsin, we invite you to contact our office at 920-339-9013 and set up a consultation with Dr. Aaron Bushong to discuss the surgical implant placement process.
An implant is a restoration that can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or all of your teeth. It is designed to replace both the crown and root of a missing tooth, ultimately providing a permanent and more durable restoration. An implant is composed of three main parts: the post, abutment, and restoration. The post is what is placed into the jaw bone and replaces the missing roots. The abutment is then placed on top of the post and attaches to the restoration to keep it firmly in place. In most cases, your restoration will be a crown, bridge, or denture.
Before beginning your implant procedure, our dentist will perform a thorough examination of your mouth. If you have good oral health, you will most likely be a good candidate for implants. However, if your jaw bone is not dense enough in the planned treatment area, we may recommend that you receive a bone graft prior to your implant procedure. A bone graft will strengthen the bone in the implant treatment area so that your implant has a greater chance of being successfully placed.
To place your dental implant, our dentist will begin by opening the gum tissue over the opening where your natural tooth once sat. Opening the gum tissue will reveal the bone underneath where your implant will be placed. Next, our dentist will carefully drill a hole the size of the implant post and insert the post into the jaw bone. Once it is inserted, you will have a healing period of a few months to let the jaw bone bond with the implant post. After your healing period, your final restoration will be attached to your implant, and your treatment will be complete.
If you are interested in replacing your missing teeth with a dental implant, we invite you to learn more about the process by contacting our practice today. We are here to help answer your questions and restore your smile.
