The Red Devils were also knocked out of the Champions League and FA Cup with a whimper, and face another year back in the Europa League.
Solskjaer is furious with the way their campaign ended and wants a complete overhaul of the squad, with 15 players already released.
He also plans to look into their training regime and other areas, but will continue with the club policy of dental checks.
It is understood the hygienist can pick up on a number of health and injury problems which other tests cannot by just looking at teeth.
An Old Trafford source said: “There is not much going on at Carrington at present with all the players off on holiday.
“The dentist is expected in during the first two days of testing. That’s going to be at the start of July, around the first week.
“A firm from Cheshire come and do the examinations and it is seen as a good window into general health and well-being.”
What can dental check-ups show?
- Studies show that people with gum disease are more likely to have heart disease
- Dry mouth and tongue can lead to tooth decay and gum disease
- Feeling stresses, anxious or depressed can cause grinding of the teeth
- Sore mouth and teeth could be a sign of Anemia, which means your body doesn't have enough red blood cells
- Thrush and HIV – white patches on tongue or isnide of cheek
- Adults without teeth are more likely to have chronic kidney disease
