4 Reasons to Schedule Your Next Dental Appointment at Mint Dental in Bradenton, FL Now Even if you don’t need any dental treatment, you should always have your regular dental cleanings to help prevent and detect any early signs of cavities, gum disease, oral cancer, and other dental problems. If it has been six months since you had a professional dental cleaning or 12 months since you had a comprehensive oral health exam, you are overdue for making an appointment. By delaying dental cleanings, exams, and needed treatment, you are risking more extensive and expensive dentistry in the future. Our appointment schedule is filling up for the rest of 2016. Don’t miss out on using your dental benefits and looking your best for the holidays. One way you can look your best for the holidays is with our new GLO Teeth Whitening. If you have a dental benefits plan, be mindful of your plan year. Your yearly maximum benefits and deductible renew each year. Unused dental benefits do not roll over and your deductible will start again.
