About Oral Exams
If you want a gorgeous, healthy smile, you need to be proactive with your dental health. MINT dentistry in Conroe, TX suggests biannual cleanings and oral health exams. Dental exams at MINT dentistry will include an assessment of the overall health of your mouth, looking for issues like cavities, oral cancer, decay, plus your risk for gum and bone disease. Your MINT team of dental professionals will perform your exam utilizing cutting-edge tools, like digital x-rays. Everyone in Conroe, TX is encouraged to schedule biannual dental examinations for their whole family at our office so you can all smile bigger for photos with beautiful, healthy smiles.
Best Candidates for Oral Exam
Dental examinations should be scheduled at least once a year with the first exam done between ages one and two years old. MINT dentistry offers superior dental care to every member of your family to address concerns using proven techniques and advanced technologies. We focus on providing a positive experience for younger patients so it's easy to get them to their appointments and they have a solid oral health foundation for the rest of their life. We also like to help our adult patients who may have had a negative experience at another practice. We aim to help them feel safe and comfortable during their appointments at our practice.
What to Expect with Oral Exam
You will be given a pair of our swanky MINT sunglasses to wear during your oral health examination as you enjoy a relaxing massage in a treatment chair. Your examination will start as your dentist checks the overall health of your mouth while you catch up on your favorite shows beneath our flat-screen televisions or listen to music through Beats headphones. Next, a member of the MINT dentistry team will get a series of digital x-rays to show possible concerns, like abnormal tissue and cavities. Using palpating techniques, the dentist will check your head and neck, especially your jaw, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), and bite. Your board-certified MINT dentist will go over your results, and if a problem is diagnosed, your treatment options will be explained. Your dentist will discuss your overall health, including any medications you may be taking since this may affect your dental health. Lastly, your dentist will examine dental restorations, like dentures or a bridge, to determine if you need any repairs or a replacement.
Oral Exam Treatment Aftercare
If our team does not find any concerns, you should follow a good home care routine, which includes brushing and flossing at least two times every day. You should also continue to schedule twice-yearly cleanings with oral health examinations at our office. Most patients will only need an exam twice a year, but MINT dentistry might recommend getting exams more often if you have certain oral health conditions. If we do find a problem, treatment options will be explained and planned. As a common example, if we find a dental cavity, we will ask you to make an appointment to have it treated with a tooth-colored filling.
The MINT Commitment
Since a dental exam is so important to your oral health, it is usually covered by dental insurance. Our team will work with your insurance to determine your coverage and any out-of-pocket costs. If you do not 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 a free home whitening kit. At MINT dentistry, we provide free mouth trays and professional whitening gel to every patient at their regularly scheduled exams and cleanings. This is just part of our commitment to helping you achieve sexy teeth.
