At Minty Smiles Dental, we understand your time is valuable. That is why we are proud to offer a full spectrum of general dentistry services to Duncanville, TX and the surrounding area that meets just about any need and fits any budget.
Maintaining a healthy mouth is essential – not only for aesthetics but for your overall health. Did you know that poor oral hygiene can lead to gum disease? Gum disease can increase your risk for conditions like stroke, heart attack, and even preterm labor.
Regularly seeing a dentist is one way to help keep your mouth and teeth in great shape. Preventative care such as dental exams and routine cleanings will allow your dentist to take a closer look at your teeth and gums. Generally, these basic exams will also include x-rays, which lets the dentist see what’s going on below the surface, like cavities. Once we know how everything looks, the dentist can recommend treatments, if necessary.
We pride ourselves on providing the very best care if you do need something such as a filling, root canal, extraction, or advanced cleaning to slow the advancement of tooth and gum diseases. We offer the best state-of-the-art technology in a calming environment so you can feel confident in allowing us to be part of your oral health team.
Pediatric dentistry is another area in which we specialize. Our staff understands that going to the dentist can be scary at first, and we strive to make your child’s experience a positive one. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that children visit the dentist by age one, or within six months of getting their first tooth. For most children, their first tooth typically comes in around six months old. Even though children lose their primary (“baby”) teeth, these teeth impact things like speech development and proper chewing. They also set the stage for their secondary teeth later on. It is crucial to ensure these primary teeth are in good shape from the beginning so your child can maintain a healthy smile as they grow.
In addition to these general dentistry services, we also treat emergencies. Rest assured we will do everything we can to take care of you as soon as possible. Dental emergencies include things such as chipped teeth, severe toothache, and lost teeth, to name a few. Please call our office right away if you are experiencing a dental emergency, and visit our Dental Emergencies page for more information.
