Best Candidates for Pediatric Dentistry

Problems, like tooth decay and cavities, can develop as early as two years old. MINT dentistry recommends scheduling your child's first visit when they are around a year and a half so a board-certified MINT dentist can make sure there are no overbite problems or structural issues. Your child may keep their baby teeth for several years so it is important that they are healthy while they wait for their adult teeth to grow in. This starts with visiting our office twice a year for exams and cleanings.

What to Expect with Pediatric Dentistry

Before our team of talented dental professionals begins your child’s dental exam, we will make sure they feel safe and comfortable. We will talk to your child and explain what is happening so they feel more comfortable with the process. Your child will be given MINT sunglasses while they sit back in a special treatment chair. A MINT dentistry team member will begin a simple exam of your child’s teeth, gums, and jaw before performing a cleaning. A fluoride treatment or dental sealants might be recommended to strengthen and protect your child's teeth as they develop. If your MINT dental team discovers an issue, we'll develop a personalized plan for treatment with your child’s utmost care and comfort in mind. We are committed to using advanced dental technologies and modern techniques to ensure our pediatric procedures are quick and comfortable but still highly effective.

Pediatric Dentistry Treatment Aftercare

Should we find an issue during your child’s appointment, you may need to schedule an appointment for a follow-up procedure. Our MINT team of dentists is experienced at meeting all the dental care needs of your family. If your child requires orthodontic treatment, a filling for a cavity, or care after a dental injury, we are here to help. To maintain a healthy mouth, our team of board-certified MINT dentists recommends you schedule dental cleanings in six-month intervals and dental exams once a year for every member of your family. Aftercare following a regularly scheduled dental exam or cleaning includes a daily home care routine, which our MINT dentistry team will help your child understand with education and demonstrations.

The MINT Commitment

Pediatric exams once a year along with cleanings twice a year are generally paid, fully or partially, by dental insurance. For any procedures or recommended treatments, our MINT support staff will reach out to your insurance provider to calculate your benefits and out-of-pocket costs. If you aren't covered by dental insurance, we accept several payment options so your family's dental care is easier to afford. MINT dentistry feels that a healthy mouth and beautiful smile are priceless so we're dedicated to helping you afford both. Talk to our team for more information on our affordable dentistry plans.
