No matter how well you brush and floss at home, it’s hard to remove plaque and tartar from areas like back teeth and in between teeth. Our dental cleanings in Butte make your smile look and feel great. Our hygienists are general dentistry pros who will do it for you while you sit back and relax! Getting regular teeth cleanings will:

  • Help Prevent Cavities – Removing problem-causing plaque from your teeth will help keep them free of decay. This will cut down on bigger, more costly problems later on.
  • Brighten Your Smile – Your smile will look whiter when we remove surface stains caused by coffee, tobacco, and other substances. To take it even further, ask about our limited-time professional teeth whitening specials when you are here.
  • Help You Keep Your Teeth – Removing bacteria-filled plaque from your gumline helps fight gum disease, the leading cause of tooth loss among adults.
  • Improve Your Overall Health – Research has linked the bacteria in plaque to medical conditions like heart disease and diabetes. It is nothing to take lightly.

Strengthen Your Smile With Preventive Care

It might surprise you to learn that over a quarter of adults between the ages of 20 to 44 have untreated cavities. That’s why we go an extra step to make sure you keep your healthy grin. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends you visit us twice a year  to maintain good oral health. In addition to your regular teeth cleanings, our dentists may recommend:

  • Fluoride Treatment – We’ll apply fluoride gel or varnish directly to your teeth to strengthen your enamel. This is an especially important treatment if you are at high risk for cavities.
  • Dental Sealants – A sealant will protect your teeth from future decay by acting as a barrier against plaque. It’s usually used for the most tough-to-clean areas like back teeth.

Our extended morning hours make it a bit easier to make time for biannual appointments. We open at 7 a.m. several days a week. So put dental cleanings in Butte on your calendar! Call Butte Family Dental at 406-565-4458 or schedule online to make an appointment. In addition to Butte, we welcome patients from nearby communities like Anaconda, Dillon, Deer Lodge, Twin Bridges, and Whitehall.

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings

How soon can I eat after a dental cleaning?

It all depends on the type of treatment you receive during your appointment. If our dental team has applied fluoride treatments to your teeth, you’ll want to wait at least 30 minutes before you eat. Otherwise, there’s no reason to wait at all! However, many people prefer to awhile since their teeth and gums may feel a bit sensitive after their cleaning.

Why do I need to get my teeth cleaned by the dentist?

More than 90 percent of people will get cavities during their lives, and more than 70 percent will develop gum disease. Daily brushing and flossing are important for prevention, but professional cleanings are how our dental professionals remove plaque and tartar buildup. This can prevent small issues before they lead to more serious oral health problems.

What happens during a dental cleaning?

At our office, our dental hygienist will floss between your teeth. We will use a scaler to remove plaque and tartar buildup from your mouth. To finish, we will polish your teeth so your smile can look its best. While you are here, we want you to be comfortable and pain-free. We’ll be happy to provide you with a cozy blanket or dental sedation, if you prefer.
