Some dental conditions require complex procedures. Our doctors’ countless hours of post graduate training means many of our patients’ needs can be tended to at Mint Dental Works.
Frequently used in hospitals to accelerate the body’s healing process after surgeries, platelet rich plasma is a blood by-product that encourages clotting and healing. Advances in technology have recently allowed the use of PRP in dental offices. This is a safe and convenient option that uses plasma drawn from your blood to assist in the healing process.
Periodontal or gum disease is caused by a build-up of plaque on the gums. Plaque is a sticky colorless film of bacteria that forms on our gums and teeth. Plaque is the main cause of cavities and gum disease which hardens into tartar if not removed with thorough oral care.
When plaque is not removed, gums become irritated and inflamed. Irritated gums can then separate from the tooth, forming a space in between known as periodontal pockets.
Root canal treatment (also know as endodontic therapy) is necessary when a cavity has been neglected long enough to affect the pulp of the tooth, requiring the canals which contain the nerve of the tooth to be cleaned out. A root canal may also be needed when a tooth has undergone an extensive restoration that affects the pulp of the tooth, or if the tooth experiences trauma that affects the root.
Missing teeth? Dental implants help to create replacement teeth that look, feel and function like your own teeth. Dental implants can also significantly enhance the function of your teeth and the appearance of your smile. Patients who have lost teeth can regain the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that the teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
In my most recent visit to Mint, I came in to have three wisdom teeth extracted. After a highly traumatic experience with an extraction a few years ago at a clinic I'll not name here, I was a little concerned about feeling the procedure despite local anesthetics. I've been coming to MDW ever since and can fully put my trust in having a comfortable and humane experience. They gladly put me on gas, and I got to watch a Louis c.k. Stand up special on Netflix, which killed most of the time it took to extract all three teeth. I was laughing so hard and maniacally throughout the experience, I even brought my dental assistant to tears along with me. One could say the whole experience was a gas.

My first visit to Mint Dental Works today was extremely positive, friendly and unlike previous dental visits at other practices. Dr. Jason McMillan and his team were welcoming, professional, down to earth, thoughtful and engaging. From registration to x-rays and the examination, I felt comfortable – a first for me – and my normal fears dissipated. This was due to the high level of customer service and care taken by everyone who greeted me. Plus the surroundings are warm, relaxed and beautiful. I'm delighted Mint Dental Works was recommended to me. Helen L, 01/23/17 (Published on RateABiz)View More Testimonials
I have had some negative experiences at past dental offices. I was impressed with their friendly staff; clean, modern building, and efforts to understand my past dental experiences and discussion around ways to improve my experience at their office. I would recommend this office to others who have had fear of the dentist. I enjoyed being seen in a clean, healthy building as well. Brooke B,, 04/10/17 (Published on RateABiz)View More Testimonials
If you're afraid of the dentist or just plain don't like going – go to Mint. They are all so friendly, professional, helpful, and go out of their way to be of service to you. From massage chairs to neck pillows to being able to watch your favorite show on Netflix while getting a cavity filled – they provide it all. Thanks, Mint, for ending my ten year long fear of dentists and making my teeth look and feel better than they ever have. Going to the dentist has never been so enjoyable.

You take good care of my teeth. I trust you. I love the work Dr McMillan did on my front teeth to make them look so lovely and yet natural. I believe that is called cosmetic dentistry. I have recommended you – no second thoughts on that!! Roberta B., 05/18/17 (Published on RateABiz)View More Testimonials
