Dental and oral health is an integral part of your overall health and well-being. Poor oral hygiene can lead to dental cavities and gum disease and has also been linked to heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. At Blount Rural Health Center, we understand that maintaining healthy teeth and gums is a lifelong commitment requiring regular professional care. That's why we encourage you to call us today to schedule a dental appointment. Our skilled providers are here to help you achieve excellent oral health through cleanings, exams, treatment, and patient education. We look forward to partnering with you for a lifetime of healthy smiles!
Our dental hygienists clean tartar and plaque off your teeth, then polish them. They may take X-rays of teeth and gums, provide fluoride rinses, and apply sealants to ward off cavities. We review home care tips on brushing, flossing, and eating for maximum dental health.
Early oral cancer detection improves treatment success. That's why we recommend regular screenings for adults over age 20 and annually for those over 40, examining the entire mouth.
We provide treatment and cleaning for periodontal diseases like gingivitis that cause swollen, inflamed gums. Our staff can help manage these common gum infections.
If you want a brighter smile, we offer professional teeth-whitening services performed by our skilled staff.
A full slate of dental restorations is among our many specialties. We offer restorations like fillings, crowns, implants, bridges, and dentures if your teeth are damaged, decayed, or missing.
Visit us for professional fluoride treatments with high fluoride concentrations applied by our dentists and hygienists to improve your dental health and reduce cavities.
We perform tooth extractions when decay, injury, or other issues require removal to prevent damage. The dentist safely pulls the tooth.
