About Pediatric Dentistry
Having a healthy, beautiful smile is important at all ages. The experienced team at MINT dentistry wants to provide your child a comfortable experience during every visit to our office in Humble, TX so they will form a good impression with dental health that reinforces good, lifelong habits. Parents should schedule visits for their children to our office at least twice a year for professional cleanings and exams. At their visit, our team of board-certified dentists will assess the development of your child’s teeth, check for problems, and educate your child on how to care for their mouth. MINT dentistry has been named “Best Family Dentist” by Consumer's Choice two years in a row. As soon as your child arrives, we will hand them an iPad loaded with fun, age-appropriate games and videos to keep them busy during their visit. Give your child the gift of a healthy, beautiful smile by scheduling an appointment at MINT dentistry in Humble, TX.
Children can have cavities and tooth decay as young as 24 months of age. MINT dentistry suggests you bring your child for their first visit by the time they are a year and a half so a MINT dental professional can check for any overbite problems or structural issues. Children usually have their primary teeth for several years so it is important that they remain in good health so their permanent teeth can grow in properly. This includes visiting our office twice a year for exams and cleanings.
What to Expect
Before our team of talented dental professionals begins your child’s dental exam, we want to help them feel safe so they have a positive experience. We will tell your child what is going to happen at every step so they understand the process. They will put on MINT sunglasses while they sit back in a special treatment chair. One of our MINT team members will first perform a basic examination of your child’s teeth, gums, and jaw followed by a professional cleaning. Fluoride rinses, dental sealants, or other proactive treatments may be suggested to strengthen and protect your child's teeth as they develop. If your MINT dental team discovers an issue, we'll talk to you to create a treatment plan based on both what your child needs and what they can easily tolerate. We are dedicated to using state-of-the-art techniques and equipment to make sure your family's dental treatments are fast, effective, and comfortable.
If your dentist diagnoses a problem at your child’s dental exam, we will ask you to schedule a follow-up appointment for treatment. Our MINT team of dentists is experienced at comprehensive dental care for your family that fits your needs. If your child needs care after an injury, an orthodontic treatment, like Invisalign®, or a simple tooth-colored filling, our office is here to help. For healthy teeth and gums, our team of board-certified MINT dentists recommends you visit our office every six months for every member of your family. To maintain the results of a cleaning or another procedure, we suggest following a dedicated at-home oral health regimen, which our MINT dentistry team will help your child understand with education and demonstrations.
The MINT Commitment
Cleanings twice a year along with an annual pediatric dental exam are usually paid, fully or partially, by dental insurance. If a treatment or procedure is required, our MINT support staff will reach out to your insurance company to calculate your benefits and out-of-pocket costs. If you do not have dental insurance, our office accepts several payment methods so you can easily fit your child's dental care into your budget. MINT dentistry feels that a healthy mouth and beautiful smile are priceless, and we're committed to helping you.
