Q: What is the most affordable way to get a brighter smile

Professional teeth whitening is an easy and affordable way to get a brighter smile. It is less invasive than other cosmetic dentistry options and produces great results for most of our patients. Although whitening kits are available at drugstores, it is safer and more effective to have your teeth whitening supervised by a dentist.

If whitening is not enough of a change, you might consider coming in for a consultation where we can discuss all your cosmetic dentistry options. We can take a close look at your budget and smile goals to find a solution that will work for you!

Q: At what age should my child have the first dental visit

Some dentists recommend that children should be seen as soon as their teeth start erupting from their gums. A good guideline is to bring them after they have teeth, but no later than their first birthday. Their first dental appointment is to make sure their teeth are growing normally and everything looks good.

An added benefit to bringing your child to their Butte family dentist at a young age is that they develop a healthy and positive understanding that the dentist is a friend who is there to help. This can prevent dental anxiety because they realize that going to the dentist is just a routine part of taking good care of your health, not something scary.

Q: How often should I see the dentist

The American Dental Association recommends that you visit your dentist every six months for dental cleanings and exams. This helps prevent tooth decay and gum disease by cleaning the plaque and tartar off your teeth that oral hygiene at home can miss. It also gives your dentist or hygienist the opportunity for early detection of dental problems, so they can be treated quickly before they become bigger issues.

If you have any pain or swelling, or experience any injury, do not wait for your next scheduled visit. You may have a dental emergency. Make an appointment to be seen at Butte Family Dental right away.

In some cases, your dentist may recommend you visit more regularly to address your unique needs.
