General Dentistry

Elk River Family Dentistry provides a broad array of general dental services.

Preventative Dentistry:

Our quality dental services will help to preserve your natural teeth for a lifetime and help to maintain your oral health at the optimum level. We offer complete dental care services that include cleanings, restorative dentistry and cosmetic dentistry.


Dental cleanings include the removal of tartar and calculus to prevent gum disease. Additionally, we provide fluoride treatment to strengthen your tooth enamel. Sealants, plastic preventative coatings, can be applied to the chewing surfaces of permanent teeth to help prevent decay. Nitrous oxide is available at Elk River Family Dentistry to help patients relax and we have found it to work particularly well for children.

Restorative Dentistry:

We offer many options to repair chipped, broken, decayed or missing teeth. We generally recommend white, composite fillings which allow us to match the specific color of your existing teeth. However, silver, amalgam fillings are offered as a less expensive alternative, though they are less visually pleasing.
- White composite fillings allow shades to match the color of existing teeth.
- Silver amalgam fillings provide a less expensive alternative.

Crowns (caps):

Crowns cover, protect and support broken or fractured teeth. They provide an alternative to large fillings for teeth lacking sufficient supportive structure. We utilize porcelain crowns which provide the strength of metal, but with the aesthetics of porcelain to match your natural tooth color. The experts at Elk River Family Dentistry will discuss all possible treatments options to determine which is best for you.
- All porcelain crowns provide the strength of metal with the aesthetics of porcelain.


Bridges replace spaces caused by missing teeth. The general dentists at Elk River Family Dentistry will communicate with you to determine if a bridge is the best treatment option for you.


We provide removal of both permanent and baby teeth. Extractions are also available if directed by an orthodontist in preparation for braces.

Mouth Guards:

We size and fit custom made mouth guards both for athletics and over night protection from wear due to grinding and clenching.


Dental Implants are a surgically placed insert that is connected to the jawbone to anchor a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, or denture. Elk River Family Dentistry partners with the best Implant Dental Specialists in Minnesota to ensure the highest level of dental implant care and treatment.
