At Cottage Dental Care, not only do we take care of your traditional dental needs like cleaning and exams, fillings, root canals and crowns but we also practice Complete Health Dentistry, the first line of defense against disease.
One aspect of Complete Health Dentistry is educating our patients about the systemic link between the mouth and body. Another aspect is blood pressure monitoring at every appointment and optional glucose testing at cleaning appointments. Annually our hygienists will complete an oral cancer screening using VELscope technology. Blood pressure, glucose, and VELscope are all done at no additional charge. Research show that Periodontal disease and other infections of the mouth are linked to higher risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other systemic diseases.
