Everyone of every age needs quality dental care, but not everyone’s needs are the same. One child may need a checkup while another person needs a crown. Your teenager may need braces but an elderly family member may need a bridge.
With family dentistry services from Monarch Dental, you and everyone in your family can receive the dental care services they need for a lifetime of good oral health, all in one office. And with multiple locations, a variety of payment options, and flexible scheduling, it’s easy to get exceptional care that fits both your busy life and your budget.
Like all general dentists, family dentists have completed dental school, but they have also received specific education to help them treat patients of all ages more effectively, including specialized training in pediatrics. While family dentists can treat a range of ages and conditions, they tend to take a very personalized, thorough approach to care. This can translate into a familiar, welcoming, and comfortable place for you and your family to receive quality dental care for years to come.
Family dentists can handle most dental care needs. For those they can’t, they can provide you or your child with a referral to a specialist for things like cosmetic procedures, orthodontics, or oral surgery. At Monarch Dental, you’ll frequently find our family dentists in the same offices as our specialists, making it easy and convenient for you to obtain specialized care should you need it.
Monarch Dental is committed to ensuring you and your family receive the dental care and services you deserve no matter what stage of life you’re in. At nearly all of our locations, you’ll find family dentistry services like:
Most patients need to see the dentist for a checkup and cleaning every six months, starting right around the time the first tooth erupts. These checkups usually begin in the dental hygienist’s chair. The hygienist will use specialized tools to remove plaque and tartar from the surface of the teeth before polishing the teeth with a special toothpaste. Hygienists who work in family dental practices are used to dealing with children and will be very gentle in their approach.
Once the teeth are clean, the dentist will examine the teeth and gums for any signs of cavities, gum disease, or other abnormalities. X-rays may also be taken to allow the dentist to see the roots of the teeth and how the teeth are aligned in the jaw. X-rays help your dentist monitor your oral health over time, keeping an eye out for cavities, misalignment issues, or gum problems that may get worse with age. Detecting problems like these early on makes them easier for your dentist to treat and helps ensure a lifetime of good oral health.
Family dentists also offer fillings, crowns, bonding, and other restorations for patients of all ages.
Sometimes, you or your child may need specialized treatment that a family dentist is not trained or equipped to provide. In cases like severe misalignment, root canals, or extensive cosmetic procedures, a family dentist can refer you to a trusted specialist, often one with whom they work regularly and have a professional rapport. A family dentist can refer you to oral care specialists like:
