Digital X-Rays

Digital X-rays allow our dentists to capture high-quality images of your teeth and supporting structures. Digital X-rays permit closer examination and increased accuracy in your diagnoses, and they produce significantly less radiation than film radiography. To make your appointment with Dr. Aaron Bushong and Dr. Beau Schneiss, and to learn more about digital X-rays in Green Bay, Wisconsin, please call Green Bay Smiles at 920-339-9013.

Digital X-rays are one of the advanced diagnostic tools we use to provide you with the best possible care. Digital radiography has changed the way we take dental X-rays by making the process faster, more comfortable, and more convenient than ever before. Digital X-rays use a digital sensor to take images of your teeth, unlike traditional X-rays that use film.

Digital-X-ray

Digital X-rays use significantly less radiation than conventional film X-rays, and they require the use of no chemicals for developing the images. Our dentist can then instantly view the high-quality images on monitors right in the treatment room to provide you with efficient, accurate diagnoses and care. Our team is able to use digital radiography to identify and diagnose several types of dental problems, such as:

  • Decay in between teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Improper tooth root positioning
  • Cysts and abscesses
  • Fractures in existing fillings
  • Tumors
  • Infection in the tooth nerves
  • Bone loss

We may also use digital dental X-rays to plan certain kinds of dental treatment, such as oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implants, and more. To learn more about digital radiography and how we use X-rays at our office, we welcome you to call or visit us soon.

Electric Handpieces

Dr. Aaron Bushong and Dr. Beau Schneiss use electric handpieces when performing your treatments. Electric handpieces are stronger than air-driven handpieces, allowing us to remove decay and complete your treatment more quickly. Give us a call today at 920-339-9013 to learn more about electric handpieces in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and to set up your appointment with our dentists at Green Bay Smiles.

Your health and comfort are our top priorities. We are dedicated to providing you with a positive and enjoyable dental experience each time you visit our office. Our dental technology, including electric handpieces, assists us in providing you with the best possible dental care. Our dentist is proud to utilize electric handpieces to ensure that your dental visit is as comfortable and efficient as possible.

Electric-Handpieces

Handpieces are used to remove the decayed and damaged portion of a tooth in preparation for a dental restoration, such as a dental crown or filling. There are two commonly used types of dental handpieces: electric handpieces and air-driven handpieces. Electric handpieces are driven by a motor, rather than compressed air, making them stronger than air-driven handpieces. Because electric handpieces are stronger, they allow our dentist to remove the decayed portion of the tooth at a faster rate, providing you with a shorter visit. Another benefit of electric handpieces is that they are quieter and smoother, so your treatment will be more comfortable and pleasant. We welcome you to contact our friendly dental office today to learn more about electric handpieces and how they can enhance your dental experience. We look forward to speaking with you soon!

Intraoral Cameras

When examining your teeth, our dentists may use intraoral cameras to check the areas of your mouth that are more difficult to reach. Intraoral cameras capture high-quality images of your teeth, projecting them onto a nearby screen to make viewing your mouth much easier. To learn more about the benefits of intraoral cameras in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and to make your appointment with Dr. Aaron Bushong and Dr. Beau Schneiss, please call Green Bay Smiles today at 920-339-9013.

An intraoral camera is a tool we use to get a closer look at different parts of your smile. The intraoral camera is a small, pen-shaped tool that we can use to take color, high-quality photos of your teeth and gums, as well as other structures in your mouth as needed. Because the intraoral camera is so small and easily maneuverable, we can use it to see angles in your mouth that we cannot easily view with the unaided eye.

Intraoral-Cameras

We may utilize the intraoral camera to better evaluate your oral health and to diagnose dental problems like tooth decay and periodontal disease, as well as tooth damage like a cracked or chipped tooth. The intraoral camera is also useful in following up after a treatment has been completed.

In addition to helping our team get a better view of your smile, the images taken with the intraoral camera are also helpful for allowing you, our patient, to gain a better understanding of your oral health and dental treatments. We can also send these photos to other dentists and specialists, and submit them to dental insurance companies as needed. To learn more about the uses and benefits of intraoral cameras, we invite you to call or visit our dentist and dental team soon.

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer screenings are a key part of your regular dental visits. When diagnosed early, oral cancer is one of the easiest forms of cancer to treat. Green Bay Smiles uses state-of-the-art technology to accurately detect and diagnose abnormal tissues in your mouth so that you can begin receiving treatment as quickly as possible. We invite you to call us today at 920-339-9013 to learn more about the benefits of oral cancer screening in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and to make your appointment with Dr. Aaron Bushong and Dr. Beau Schneiss.

Oral cancer includes cancers of the lips, tongue, floor of the mouth, cheeks, throat (pharynx), sinuses, and hard and soft palate. While oral cancer can usually be successfully treated when detected early, most cases of oral cancer are not detected until they have progressed into a more serious, advanced stage that is much more difficult to treat. In fact, oral cancer may be life threatening.

Oral-Cancer-Screenings

At our office, we are dedicated to doing all we can to detect and treat oral cancers and other abnormalities at the earliest possible stage. During your routine dental cleanings and exams at our office, our dentist and team will perform an oral cancer screening to check for the signs of oral cancer.

The following are common symptoms of oral cancer:

  • A persistent sore throat or feeling that something is caught at the back of the throat
  • Unexplained bleeding in the mouth
  • A persistent or lasting sore on the face, neck, or mouth that bleeds easily and does not heal within two weeks
  • Unexplained loss of feeling, pain, or numbness in the face, neck, or mouth
  • Ear pain
  • Lumps, bumps, or rough spots on the gums, lips, or other parts of the mouth
  • Red, white, or speckled red and white patches in the mouth
  • Difficulty chewing, speaking, or swallowing
  • A change in the way your teeth or dentures fit together

While our team will perform a screening for oral cancer to check for these and other symptoms, we encourage you to contact us if you notice any of these problems or if you experience any other type of dental pain. We are committed to helping you stay in good health.

Oral Conscious Sedation

While there are many types of sedation available, Dr. Aaron Bushong and Dr. Beau Schneiss primarily provide oral conscious sedation. When you receive oral sedation, our dentists will provide you with a special medication which you can take prior to your appointment. By the time you receive your treatment, you will be completely relaxed! Call us today at 920-339-9013 to learn more about oral conscious sedation in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and to schedule your appointment at Green Bay Smiles.

Oral sedation is a form of conscious sedation we may recommend to ensure you have a comfortable experience each time you visit our office. Administered in pill form, oral sedation is simple and easy to use. 

Because oral sedation is a form of conscious sedation, you will remain awake during the treatment, but you will feel more relaxed and at ease.

Oral-Sedation

There are many benefits to sedation dentistry, including:

  • With oral sedation, you simply need to take a pill. It is quick and easy to use.
  • There are no needles involved.
  • It produces the necessary amnesic effect for a comfortable experience.
  • Oral sedation typically costs less than other forms of sedation.

If you and our dentist determine that oral sedation is right for you, you will be prescribed a pill that will help you relax. You will be instructed to take the pill before your scheduled appointment; be certain to follow the specific instructions included with your pill. It is important that you have a family member or a friend drive you to and from your appointment to provide maximum safety to yourself and others. When you arrive at our office, you will be awake but extremely relaxed. You may feel drowsy, and it is not unusual for you to not remember all of the details of your appointment.

For more information about the benefits of oral sedation and how we can make your visit more comfortable, please call our office today.

Panorex

Green Bay Smiles features Panorex technology, allowing our dentists to capture and view a complete picture of your teeth, head, sinuses, and bones. These panoramic images allow us to easily identify specific structural problems, plan implant placements, and diagnose and treat many other dental problems. Please call us at 920-339-9013 to make your appointment with Dr. Aaron Bushong and Dr. Beau Schneiss, and to learn more about Panorex in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

In order to provide you with the best possible dental care, it is essential that our dentist is able to accurately evaluate and diagnose your oral health. One of the state-of-the-art tools we use to do that is panoramic X-rays. While standard X-rays, called bitewing X-rays, provide us with a view of a few teeth and the supporting bone structure, panoramic X-rays allow us to view the full upper and lower dental arches – including all of the teeth, upper and lower jawbones, and the surrounding facial structures. Using panoramic X-rays, our dentist is able to:

Panorex

 

  • Assess the need for orthodontics and evaluate the progress of treatment
  • Diagnose impacted wisdom teeth and other impacted teeth
  • Analyze the development of periodontal disease
  • Evaluate the TMJ (jaw joint) and diagnose a TMJ disorder
  • Detect oral cancer
  • Plan dental implant placement
  • Diagnose cavities (tooth decay) and other dental problems
  • Evaluate the extent of dental and/or facial trauma
  • Detect abscesses, cysts, and tumors

Using the panoramic X-ray machine is fast and comfortable. The machine simply rotates around your head and provides our dentist with high-definition, nearly instantaneous images that we can then use to evaluate your oral health. We invite you to call or visit us today to learn more about panoramic X-rays.

Rotary Endodontics

Using rotary endodontics, Dr. Aaron Bushong and Dr. Beau Schneiss can perform your root canal treatment faster and more comfortably than ever before! For more information about rotary endodontics in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and to make your appointment with our dentists, contact Green Bay Smiles today at 920-339-9013.

At our dental office, we are committed to providing you with a positive, pleasant experience each time you visit us. Our dentist is pleased to utilize rotary endodontics to ensure that root canal therapy is as comfortable and efficient as possible. Rotary endodontics allows us to complete your root canal therapy and other endodontic treatments more quickly and with less discomfort. Rotary endodontics involves using a specialized, electrical handpiece that makes the treatment easier for your dentist and more comfortable for you. This handpiece helps us to speed up the treatment.

Rotary-Endodontics

Root canal therapy is an endodontic treatment that involves removing infected dental pulp and tooth nerve. You may benefit from root canal therapy if you notice any of the following symptoms:

  • Extreme tooth pain, especially when biting down and chewing
  • Swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums
  • A persistent or recurring pimple on the nearby gums
  • A discoloration (darkening) of the tooth
  • Increased tooth sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures

Root canal therapy can relieve these painful symptoms and return your smile to good health. To learn more about rotary endodontics and root canal therapy, we invite you to call or visit our office soon. We look forward to improving your oral health!
