What Does a Typical Dental Appointment Look Like?

  • Warm Welcome and Check-In: Our welcoming front desk staff will greet you and assist with the check-in process. We prioritize creating a warm and friendly environment when you enter our doors.
  • Thorough Dental Examination: Once you’re settled in the treatment room, our dental team will conduct a consultation to discuss any concerns or specific dental needs you may have. Our dentist will perform a thorough examination of your oral cavity, including your teeth, gums, jaw, and soft tissues.
  • Dental Cleanings and Preventive Care: Our skilled dental hygienist will perform a thorough dental cleaning to remove plaque, tartar, and stains from your teeth. This process involves gentle scaling, polishing, and flossing to ensure your teeth and gums are clean and healthy. We believe in empowering our patients to take an active role in their oral health, and our dental team will provide personalized oral hygiene instructions for at-home care.
  • Digital Imaging and Diagnostic Tests: Depending on your individual needs, we may take digital X-rays or photos to get a comprehensive view of your oral structures. These images help us evaluate areas that are not visible during an exam and assist in diagnosing any underlying dental issues.
  • Treatment Planning and Recommendations: Our dentist will discuss the results of your examination and any diagnostic tests, explaining their findings in a clear and understandable manner. Based on the examination, we will recommend any necessary dental treatments or procedures to address existing dental problems and prevent future complications.

Pediatric and Family Care at Minter Dentistry

At Minter Dentistry, we offer a wide range of dental services specifically tailored to meet the unique oral health needs of your entire family.

  • Dental Cleanings: Regular dental cleanings are essential for maintaining optimal oral health. We will also provide personalized oral hygiene instructions to help you and your family develop healthy habits and prevent future dental issues.
  • Comprehensive Dental Exams: Oral Exams involve a thorough assessment of the teeth, gums, and overall oral structures. By detecting potential issues early on, we can recommend appropriate interventions and preventive measures.
  • Cavity Fillings: A cavity can often be treated with a tooth-colored filling. We use modern materials that blend seamlessly with the natural tooth color, ensuring a discreet and aesthetically pleasing restoration.
  • Tooth Extractions: Sometimes, a tooth may need to be extracted to preserve oral health and prevent further complications. We provide appropriate pain management and offer guidance for post-extraction care.
  • Silver Diamine Fluoride treatment: A relatively new medicament in dentistry, SDF treatment requires no needles and is used to stop the progression of a cavity and protect against sensitivity.  SDF can be a great alternative to traditional fillings in young children or in certain situations where providing a positive experience is paramount. 
  • Emergency Dental Care: Dental emergencies can happen unexpectedly, and we are here to provide prompt and compassionate care when you need it most.
