Our dentist and dental team at Cottage Grove Dental are dedicated to helping you keep your teeth healthy for life. To achieve this, it is important to practice good oral hygiene, which includes visiting our dental office regularly and taking care of your smile between visits. We strive to always provide you with high-quality dental care, and we can also help you learn how to maintain a healthy smile at home.
Dental Cleanings and Regular Checkups
Routine dental cleanings and checkups are essential to maintaining good oral health. When you visit our dental office, our gentle dentist and dental hygienists will:
- Check for dental problems, such as tooth decay and periodontal disease
- Screen for oral cancer
- Thoroughly clean your teeth by removing plaque and tartar
- Polish your teeth for a bright, healthy smile
If needed, our experienced dentist will recommend further dental treatments to improve your oral health. Be sure to take advantage of this opportunity to ask us any questions you might have about your oral health.
Choosing the Right Toothpaste and Toothbrush
Choosing the right toothpaste, toothbrush, dental floss, mouthwash, and other products is important to keeping your smile healthy. Be sure to choose toothpastes and toothbrushes that have been approved by the American Dental Association, and we recommend that you use a toothpaste that contains fluoride. Dr. Brent Bitner, your dentist in Cottage Grove, Oregon, can recommend certain dental products that match your specific dental needs.
