About Pediatric Dentistry
A gorgeous, healthy smile boosts your confidence in every stage of life. At MINT dentistry, our goal is to provide each child a comfortable dental experience during every visit to our office in Conroe, TX so they will have a good association with dental health that makes it easier for them to have a lifetime of healthy smiles. Parents should schedule visits for their children to MINT dentistry two times every year for dental cleanings and pediatric dental exams. At their visit, a board-certified dentist will assess the development of your child’s teeth, look for problems, and teach your child the best way to take care of their teeth. Consumers Choice has named MINT dentistry as "Best Family Dentist" two years in a row. When your child arrives, we will give them a tablet loaded with fun, parent-approved games and videos to keep them busy. Give your child the gift of a beautiful smile by scheduling an appointment for them at MINT dentistry in Conroe, TX.
Best Candidates for Pediatric Dentistry
Problems, like tooth decay and cavities, can develop as young as two years old. MINT dentistry suggests scheduling your child's first visit when they are around 18 months old so a board-certified MINT dentist can check for any issues, like misalignment. Children usually have their baby teeth for several years so it's a good idea to make sure they are healthy until their permanent teeth have grown in. This means scheduling appointments for an annual pediatric exam and biannual cleanings.
What to Expect with Pediatric Dentistry
At the start of your child's appointment, we will make sure they feel safe and comfortable. Our team will talk to your child and explain what is happening so they are part of the process. Your child will get to wear MINT sunglasses as they relax in a comfortable treatment chair. A MINT dentistry team member will begin a simple examination of your child’s teeth, gums, and jaw and then a quick cleaning. Fluoride rinses, dental sealants, or other proactive treatments may be recommended to strengthen and protect your child's teeth as they develop. If your MINT dental team discovers a problem, we'll talk to you to create a treatment plan that focuses on your child's needs and comfort level. MINT dentistry is dedicated to using cutting-edge dental technology and advanced techniques to make sure our pediatric procedures are fast and comfortable while still effective.
Pediatric Dentistry Treatment Aftercare
If one of our dental professionals detects a concern in your child’s oral health exam, we will ask you to schedule a follow-up appointment for treatment. Every dentist and team member at MINT dentistry is experienced at providing comprehensive and compassionate dental care. If your child requires braces, fillings, or treatment for an injured tooth, we are ready to help. For healthy teeth and gums, 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. To maintain the results of a cleaning or another procedure, we suggest following a daily home care routine, which our MINT dentistry team will help your child understand with education and demonstrations.
The MINT Commitment
Preventive treatments, like annual exams and twice-yearly cleanings for children, 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 company to determine any additional costs. If you don't have dental insurance, our office accepts several payment methods so your family's dental care is easier to afford. MINT dentistry feels that a beautiful smile and a healthy mouth are invaluable assets so we're dedicated to helping your family.
