What Can I Expect During an Oral Exam?

Our swanky MINT sunglasses will be provided for you to wear while you relax for your oral exam in one of our luxurious treatment chairs. Your examination will begin with an overall evaluation of your mouth and teeth while you watch a show or jam out with a pair of our Beats headphones. Then, a member of the MINT dentistry team will use digital x-rays to get a better view of your teeth and check for abnormalities. Using palpating techniques, the dentist will check your head and neck, especially your jaw, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), and bite. Your dentist will go over your results, and if a problem is diagnosed, your options for treatment will be explained. Your MINT team will discuss your overall health, including any medications you may be taking to see if this may be affecting your oral health. Finally, your dentist will examine any restorations you have, like dentures or a bridge, to see if they need to be repaired or replaced.

After a Routine Dental Exam

If one of our MINT dentists doesn’t find an issue with your current dental state, your only aftercare will be to follow a routine at home of flossing and brushing at least twice daily. You also need to make appointments for twice-yearly cleanings with oral health examinations at our office. Most patients will only need an exam twice a year, but we might suggest scheduling exams more frequently for patients with serious oral health conditions. If our team does diagnose an issue, treatment options will be explained and planned. For example, if a cavity is found, you'll be asked to make an appointment at MINT dentistry in Canton, GA for a tooth-colored filling to treat it.
