Children can have cavities and tooth decay as early as two years old. MINT dentistry suggests you bring your child for their first visit by the time they are 18 months old, so a MINT dental professional can make sure there are no overbite problems or structural issues. Your child may have their baby teeth for several years, so it is important that they remain in good health until their permanent teeth have grown in. This means scheduling appointments twice a year for exams and cleanings.
What to Expect
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 are part of the process. They will be given a pair of MINT sunglasses and asked to relax in one of our super comfy treatment chairs. One of our MINT team members will begin a simple exam of your child’s mouth before performing a cleaning. Fluoride rinses, dental sealants, or other proactive treatments may be recommended to help protect the teeth as your child grows older. Should our team identify a concern, a customized treatment plan will be created with your child’s utmost care and comfort in mind. MINT dentistry is committed to using the newest dental technology, equipment, and techniques to ensure your family's dental treatments are quick and comfortable but still highly effective.
If one of our dental professionals detects a problem during your child’s routine exam and cleaning, you may need to schedule a follow-up appointment for treatment. Our MINT team of dentists is skilled at providing comprehensive and compassionate dental care. If your child needs care after an injury, an orthodontic treatment like Invisalign®, or a simple tooth-colored filling, we are ready to help. For optimal oral health, MINT dentistry recommends you schedule dental cleanings in six-month intervals and dental exams once a year for your child. Aftercare following a regularly scheduled dental exam or cleaning includes a dedicated at-home oral health regimen, as instructed by the MINT dentistry team.
The MINT Commitment
Preventive treatments like annual exams and twice-yearly cleanings for children are usually covered by your dental insurance provider. If a treatment or procedure is required, our MINT support staff will contact your provider to determine any additional costs. If you do not have dental insurance, we accept many payment methods to help make your child's dental care easier to afford. MINT dentistry believes that a beautiful smile and a healthy mouth are invaluable assets, and we are committed to helping you afford both.
