Keep Your Teeth Healthy and Bright with Routine Cleanings
The key to keeping all your teeth is to have routine cleanings. Teeth cleanings and your oral health are essential, no matter your age. And at Cottage Dental Care, we offer routine cleaning services for both pediatric and adult patients. Our goal is to provide you with a safe and comfortable environment while taking care of your or your children’s teeth.
Our office provides cleanings for ages three years old and up. Children are evaluated and walked through procedures at their own levels. Sometimes, only an exam can be done. Other times, we can complete the entire cleaning. And for patients who are more sensitive to cleanings than others, we offer different types of numbing procedures (no nitrous oxide).
Adults are just big kids, so we try to make you comfortable with your cleanings as well. Different types of numbing procedures are available if adults have hypersensitive teeth. Sometimes, adults have heavier tarter build-up and stains on their teeth than they did as a child. To prevent this build-up from causing gum disease, cleanings need to be every 3, 4, or 6 months. And the cleaner you keep your teeth at home, the less we need to do to ensure your mouth stays healthy.
What Teeth Cleanings Accomplish:
- Removal of heavy tartar build-up
- Reduction of stains
- Prevention of gum disease
- Reduce chances of other diseases linked to oral health (heart, breathing, and periodontal problems)
How We Accommodate Our Patients:
- Local anesthetic options, except for nitrous oxide (laughing gas)
- Dental chairs with back massages
- TV with cable stations
- Education on maintaining the health of your teeth
For those wanting cosmetic changes, we offer options whether they want to straighten, whiten, or change the overall appearance of their teeth. All of these options can be discussed during and after their regular check-ups. The health of teeth must be the first priority before cosmetic choices can be made. We want everyone to have a HAPPY & HEALTHY smile.
