General & Family Dentistry

Preventative dental care is the best way to avoid long, uncomfortable, and expensive procedures. Many dental issues also contribute to major health conditions, like diabetes or cardiovascular disease. We want to prevent serious health concerns by helping you maintain great oral health!

At your regular cleanings and checkups, your dentist performs a thorough examination to determine your level of oral health while checking for preliminary signs of dental issues.

Blue River Dental offers comprehensive general and family dentistry, so you can get the care you need for your whole family in one place. We provide professional cleanings, x-rays, and oral cancer screenings to help you protect your overall health.

What Is General Dentistry?

General dentistry encompasses a variety of dental procedures and preventative measures, including professional cleanings, x-rays, and oral cancer screenings.

Professional cleanings are more than a dentist brushing your teeth for you. You need professional cleanings to remove plaque and tartar.

Both tartar and plaque contribute to tooth decay, so removing these substances prevents cavities, fillings, abscesses, and root canals. Getting plaque and tartar removed at Blue River Dental keeps your smile bright and white!

X-rays and oral cancer screenings are also vital to your overall dental health. X-rays allow our team to anticipate issues like dying roots and impacted wisdom teeth, helping us save you from the pain of infections or tooth crowding. Oral cancer screenings are an early detection measure that can help prevent the advancement of this disease.

Family Dentistry Helps Your Children, Too!

Generally, it is recommended that children start seeing a dentist between ages 1 and 2, around the time their first tooth erupts. This visit helps familiarize your child with the dentist and dental office experience. Our team at Blue River Dental loves working with patients of all ages; we want to help children develop healthy habits for dental care at an early age!

Though children’s teeth are eventually replaced, it is still important to make sure their baby teeth, or primary teeth, are healthy. Tooth decay at any age can lead to more widespread oral health issues, so it’s vital to make oral health a priority for patients of all ages.

Give your children a great start in life! A healthy mouth can keep your child healthy overall. We want to see them smiling for a lifetime!
