It doesn’t matter when your last dental visit was, or if you’ve ever even had one–it’s never too late to start taking care of your teeth and improving your dental health. Let Monarch Dental help you smile bigger, brighter, and healthier with general dentistry services like:
Regular cleanings and exams are an important part of your dental care. You should see a dentist twice a year to:
Routine checkups generally consist of two parts, the cleaning and the exam.
Cleanings are performed by a dental hygienist and go beyond what your daily brushing and flossing can do, removing sticky plaque and tartar buildup that your toothbrush can’t get. Cleanings also ensure that bacteria and food debris is removed from even those hard-to-reach places in between your teeth, in the back of your mouth, and around your gum line
After your cleaning, the dentist will come in for your exam.
During the exam, the dentist will check for:
Routine cleanings and exams should be just as much a part of your oral hygiene as daily brushing and flossing, and with multiple locations, convenient online scheduling, and affordable prices, Monarch Dental makes it easy for you to get the care you need. Many of our locations even offer extended hours and weekend appointments so you can fit quality care into your busy schedule, and we accept most major insurances, so you can also fit it into your budget.

Even with good daily habits and twice-yearly cleanings, things happen to your smile. Your teeth go with you everywhere, and it takes a lot to protect them from cavities, decay, damage, and infection. Just the impact of daily use can wear your teeth down and make them susceptible to bigger problems.
Monarch Dental has you covered with restorative treatments that make sure your teeth will last a lifetime.
If you have severe tooth decay or tooth loss, the dentists at Monarch Dental can restore your smile. No matter what the condition of your teeth, you deserve the confidence of a healthy mouth, and Monarch Dental can help.

Another way to protect your dental health is by preventing problems from happening in the first place. Preventative measures like dental sealants and fluoride treatments can help preserve the strength and integrity of your teeth and prevent future damage and tooth decay. What’s more, since most can be done during your regular routine cleanings and exams, preventative treatments make protecting your smile fast, easy, and convenient.
When combined with everyday oral hygiene like brushing and flossing, preventative treatments can make a big difference in the durability of your teeth, and they are especially important for children’s teeth as they develop. Often, dental problems that start in small mouths become much larger problems in adulthood, from decayed teeth that are not treated properly, causing deep underlying problems in the jaw and unerupted teeth, to weakened teeth that become easily damaged and need multiple restorations.
Fluoride. Enamel erosion is common in most people and can compromise your teeth’s ability to fight off damage and decay. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that can help protect and restore the enamel of the teeth. Usually applied as a gel to teeth surfaces, fluoride helps keep teeth strong, restores and reinforces protective minerals, and prevents teeth from weakening as a result of enamel erosion.
Dental sealants. Deep grooves or pits in the molars or premolars are hard to clean and can be great breeding grounds for cavity-causing bacteria. Dental sealants help smooth out the grooves, making the teeth easier to clean and less likely to accumulate food debris.
At Monarch Dental, we believe prevention is paramount for a lifetime of good oral care. Our dentists and dental hygienists are highly trained in identifying any high-risk areas in your or your child’s teeth that could benefit from preventative treatment.
