Smiling in Huntingburg, IN
While regular brushing and flossing is an important habit in maintaining your smile, routine exams allow our trained dental staff to perform a thorough examination of your teeth, mouth, and gums. This can be critical in catching any issues early, providing proactive care, and avoiding more costly and uncomfortable future treatments. Huntingburg Family Dentistry provides our patients with teeth cleaning services, oral cancer screenings, fluoride treatments, and more.
Periodontitis is an inflammatory disease of the gums that can result in a variety of symptoms that may range in severity and can worsen without proper treatment. Often noticed through the red, inflamed appearance that presents around your gumline, it may also include bleeding gums, gum tenderness, receding gums, and loose teeth. Huntingburg Family Dentistry can prevent, diagnose, and treat all stages, ranging from mild gingivitis to severe periodontitis cases.
Huntingburg Family Dentistry is proud to offer our patients state-of-the-art dental technology to provide faster, safer, and more precise dental care. Using advanced digital x-rays, our dental staff has access to imaging with much higher-quality details and accuracy over traditional x-rays, allowing for more effective treatment and less radiation exposure for our patients.
Dental implants, crowns, and bridges aren’t just purely cosmetic. Missing or misaligned teeth can cause your other teeth to shift or cause additional stress or strain to the surrounding teeth. Using dental implants, crowns, and bridges, we can restore the look and functionality of your smile.

Dental implants require a surgical procedure to implant a titanium post to act as the stable root of your replacement tooth.

Rather than replacing an entire tooth, dental crowns allow our dentists to create a custom-shaped cap to seal and protect a damaged or decaying tooth. This procedure is less invasive than a full-scale implant and some can be performed in as little as one office visit.

Dental bridges are similar to a crown but are used in situations where a patient has multiple teeth damaged or missing. Using two crowns on either side to stabilize the bridge, the replacement tooth, or teeth, will fill the gap to provide you with a seamless smile.
