At Monokian Dentsitry, we offer general dentistry services in Marlton and Haddonfield, NJ, to maintain patients’ oral health. Preventative dental care is a part of general dentistry. With preventative care, we can stop further damage or dysfunction to the smile and even prevent dental problems in the first place. Routine dental care and general dental treatments can prevent tooth pain, gum disease, dental injuries, and even tooth loss. Our dentists offer detailed examinations and thorough treatment planning to understand each patient’s needs. Even regular dental visits are thorough; ensuring that patients are in good oral health can prevent the need for more extensive or costly care.

If you or your child play contact sports like hockey, lacrosse, or basketball, you need to wear a sports mouthguard. We work with a local dental lab to create custom sports mouthguards that protect natural teeth and braces from damage.
We provide emergency dental treatment for patients who require immediate dental care. Common dental emergencies that we can treat include broken dental restorations, lost permanent teeth, and tooth pain.
Our dental offices provide dental care for the whole family. It’s important to ensure that children receive dental care at a young age to help them maintain good oral health over their lifetime. Family dental care can address oral health problems at every stage of life.
A root canal is a dental procedure that removes the infected dental pulp from within the tooth. The dental pulp consists of the nerves, blood vessels, and cells that keep teeth alive. If an infection reaches the root canal and dental pulp, we need to remove the inflamed pulp and clean the root canal. A root canal ensures that patients retain their permanent teeth.
We recommend tooth extractions if patients have severely damaged, infected, or impacted teeth. Our team ensures that patients feel as comfortable as possible during extraction treatment with local anesthetic and sedation. If we extract permanent diseased or damaged teeth, we can provide dental implant treatments and restorations that look like natural teeth.
Q&A: General Dentistry Services
Do you have questions about general dental treatments? Read answers to these commonly asked questions:
Is a root canal painful?
We make sure that patients feel as comfortable as possible during their root canal treatment. Our dentists use a local anesthetic to numb the tooth and ensure patients do not feel any pain. We will also recommend ibuprofen or another pain medication to ensure that patients feel minimal pain or discomfort as they heal.
How do I know if I have a dental emergency?
Dental emergencies are sudden, severe oral health issues. If you have severe pain, tooth damage, or tooth loss, you require professional dental care to prevent further damage to your smile. Dental trauma or toothaches are not only uncomfortable but can create increased problems if patients do not receive immediate care.
How often should I visit the dentist?
We recommend that patients visit the dentist twice a year or biannually. If patients have chronic dental problems, we will recommend a more frequent schedule. For instance, we can provide regular periodontal cleanings for patients with recurring gum disease.
