Keep Teeth Healthy With General Dentistry in Butte, MT

While our Butte, MT dentists have advanced training in procedures designed to save damaged teeth, like root canals, it’s better to prevent damage in the first place. That’s where general dentistry comes in. While regular dental exams and dental cleanings are the cornerstone of general dental care, it also includes:

  • Nutritional counseling, to help you make dietary changes that will benefit your oral health and overall health too
  • Preventive treatments like fluoride and dental sealants, to help prevent cavities
  • Screenings not just for cavities but also for issues like dry mouth and gum disease

Don’t neglect your family’s general dental care! Call 406-565-4458 to make an appointment today.

For Healthy Teeth, You Need Healthy Gums

You can’t have healthy teeth without healthy gums! While many people worry about cavities, gum disease is actually the leading cause of tooth loss among adults. So our dentists look for signs of gum disease during every exam. If you have gum disease, they can treat it with a deep cleaning method called scaling and root planing. This removes bacteria and makes it more difficult for it to collect in spaces between teeth and gums.

Get Solutions for Your Dental Problems

If our dentists see any signs of problems, they’ll suggest solutions for you. For example, many prescription medications can lead to dry mouth, a condition characterized by a lack of saliva. Since saliva helps prevent cavities, you don’t want to ignore it. We’ll suggest products that will help.

We may also suggest a custom mouthguard for you or your child to wear to protect teeth during athletic activities. A custom mouthguard fits better and is more comfortable than sports guards bought from a store, so you’ll be more likely to consistently wear it. We can also fit you for a mouthguard that will prevent you from grinding teeth in your sleep, a habit that can cause dental damage.

To get the general dentistry your family needs, call Butte Family Dental at 406-565-4458. Or use our convenient online form. Our Butte, MT dentist office is located near the Butte Family YMCA and Stodden Park.
