Best Candidates for Oral Exam
Oral health exams should be performed once every year starting at about 18 months old. MINT dentistry offers superior dental care to every member of your family, and we can help address dental conditions of varying stages using modern techniques and technologies. Our team focuses on providing a good experience for younger patients so it's easier to keep them coming back for a lifetime of good oral hygiene. We also like to help our adult patients who may have had a negative experience at another dentist. We aim to help them feel safe and comfortable during their appointments at MINT dentistry.
What to Expect with Oral Exam
You will be given a pair of our swanky MINT sunglasses to wear during your dental exam as you sit back in a massaging treatment chair. Your exam will start with an overall evaluation of your mouth and teeth while you catch up on your favorite shows beneath our flat-screen televisions or listen to music through Beats headphones. Then, we will get a series of digital x-rays to show possible concerns, like abnormal tissue and cavities. You can expect an evaluation of your head and neck, especially your jawbone and bite. A MINT dental professional will go over your results, and if a problem is diagnosed, your options for treatment will be explained. We will record any health problems you have, including current medications and supplements to see if this may be affecting your oral health. Finally, we will evaluate dental restorations, like dentures or a bridge, to check the fit and wear.
Oral Exam Treatment Aftercare
If our team does not diagnose any problems, then the only aftercare necessary would be to follow a good home care routine, which includes flossing and brushing twice a day. You also need to schedule twice-yearly cleanings with oral health examinations at our office. Most patients only need an oral health examination two times every year, but MINT dentistry may suggest getting exams more frequently for patients with serious oral health problems. If our team does see something that needs to be addressed, your options for treatment will be discussed and planned. For example, if a cavity is found, we will ask you to schedule an appointment to have it treated with a tooth-colored filling.
The MINT Commitment
Proactive dental care, like annual exams, is important so it is typically covered by dental insurance. We will contact your dental insurance company to determine your coverage and any out-of-pocket costs. If you don't have insurance, we offer the MINT Discount Plan that features large discounts on most every dental procedure at MINT. As an added incentive to attend your annual exam, we give you free teeth whitening. At MINT dentistry, we provide complimentary mouth trays and professional whitening gel when you visit for your annual exam and biannual cleanings. This is just part of our commitment to helping you get your brightest, healthiest smile.
