A bright and healthy smile is a beauty to behold. At Mint Dental, we help you keep the smiles in your family healthy and looking their best. Annual or bi-annual checkups and regular professional cleanings help minimize the incidence of dental decay and gum disease. These visits to the dentist allow us to prevent small dental issues from becoming complicated, expensive problems in the future. It also allows Dr. Antoinette Liles to monitor growth and development of your child’s teeth. Early detection of potential problems can eliminate the need for expensive and time-consuming solutions down the road. The saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” is certainly true in regard to maintaining good oral health.
No matter your age, a professional cleaning will help you maintain gum health and fight against gum disease as well as keep your teeth healthy. Elderly patients are less likely to lose a tooth due to dental decay and are more likely to lose teeth due to gum disease. Regular dental visits minimize the risk of all tooth loss.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
At Mint Dental, we provide comprehensive dental examinations. Each tooth is thoroughly checked for signs of decay and gum disease. Digital imaging provides information about what is going on beneath the surface of the teeth and gums. We are able to determine if there are areas of decay developing which are not visible to the eye. Early detection of problem areas can help prevent cavities from developing. If decay is discovered, addressing the problem right away will prevent it from becoming a painful, expensive predicament later.
Oral cancer screening checks for any signs of oral cancer. When discovered in its earliest stages, oral cancers are the easiest to treat. The screening takes just a few minutes and is painless. These few minutes can be life-saving if cancer is detected. Did you know that only about 20% of the population have regular screenings for oral cancers?
At Mint Dental, our priorities include patient comfort and helping to maintain the highest level of oral health. Contact us to schedule appointments for you and your family members. We will help you achieve and maintain your best oral health.
