General Dentistry Services
At River Falls Family Dental, we are capable of taking care of a wide variety of dental needs from our one convenient location. When you come in for your appointment, you can count on us to take a thorough look at your dental condition and to present our findings and recommendations with honesty. We look forward to helping you and your family achieve your very best smiles with high-quality, general dentistry.
Routine Dental Care
Routine dental care can save you the trouble of dealing with more expensive, intensive, and time-consuming oral health issues down the road. Our preventive services include teeth cleanings, dental exams, and oral cancer screenings. We also provide fluoride treatments, sealants, and tooth-colored fillings to protect against and remedy cavities. If you play contact sports or grind your teeth at night, we can fit you with a custom mouthguard or nightguard.
Periodontal treatment focuses on taking care of the gums. Healthy gums are crucial to not only a healthy mouth but overall wellness. If you are at risk for gum disease or are currently dealing with gum disease, we can help. Our periodontal services include deep cleanings (scaling and root planing), Arestin® antibiotic treatment, periodontal surgery, esthetic gum grafting, and bone grafting.
You deserve a smile that’s not just healthy, but that you feel confident in showing off too. If you’re unhappy with the color of your teeth, we offer both take-home, custom tray teeth whitening as well as in-office, one-visit teeth whitening. To learn more about these two different options, visit our teeth whitening page.
Root Canal Therapy
Many patients are afraid of hearing they need a root canal, but the consequences of not getting one when you need it are actually much scarier. We provide root canal therapy to treat a severely infected tooth so that it doesn’t cause you any more pain and so that the condition doesn’t worsen, leading to an abscess or necessitating a tooth extraction. To learn more, visit our root canal therapy page.
While we work hard to prevent this from ever becoming the case, there are some situations where getting a tooth extracted is the best course of action for your health. If this is true for you, we can take care of the procedure in-house as we provide surgical extractions as well as wisdom teeth removal. Our team always prioritizes patient comfort, and we also have sedation options available. We are also happy to discuss your tooth replacement options after your procedure if that is something you would like to pursue.
Tooth Replacement Options
With modern dentistry, you have a number of different options for replacing one or multiple missing teeth. At our office, we can create natural-looking dental bridges, removable partial dentures, and complete dentures. We can even stabilize your dentures with dental implants for a much more secure fit. If you’re unsure which method is best for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Hendrix and she can offer her recommendation based on your number of missing teeth, the condition of your oral health, and your budget.
Emergency Dental Care
Dental emergencies always come up when we least expect them. We provide prompt emergency dental care to help alleviate any pain you’re feeling and get back to your daily routine as soon as possible. If you’re dealing with a painful toothache, chipped or broken tooth, or another urgent situation, please call us at 812-945-5533 as soon as possible.
River Falls Family Dental offers additional treatments related to your oral health: headache prevention and TMD/TMJ therapy. If you find that you deal with frequent headaches or you have chronic paint or discomfort in your jaw, we may be able to help with a custom oral appliance.
