Are you looking for a dental office that can treat all members of your family? At Monokian Dentistry, we can offer family dentistry services to patients in Marlton and Haddonfield, NJ. Family dental care allows children and adults to receive the dental care they need under one roof. Our offices work with patients to ensure that they can schedule care for their whole family, whether they need a routine checkup, a wisdom tooth removal, or complete restorative services.
Family Dental Care: Early and Continual Oral Health
It’s important for children to receive dental care at a young age to help encourage good oral health habits and keep their smiles healthy. Even before the first baby teeth emerge, parents should clean their children’s gums to prevent bacterial buildup. Our offices provide routine dental care for all ages with X-rays, examinations, and cleanings. Scheduling regular dental care can ensure good oral health as permanent teeth replace baby teeth and patients grow into their smiles.
We can provide other important routine treatments, including dental sealants and fluoride treatment, to keep teeth healthy. Our team will recommend dental sealants for patients between the ages of 6 to 12. We apply sealants on the molars or back teeth to protect them from harmful decay-causing bacteria. We paint sealants on the tooth’s surfaces to create a layer of protection. Sealants can protect the teeth for years after application.
Fluoride is a mineral that works with other minerals like phosphate to strengthen the tooth enamel. Using fluoride toothpaste and drinking water that contains fluoride can make your teeth less susceptible to decay and keeps them strong. We offer fluoride rinses during dental cleanings for patients of all ages.
Caring for Aging Smiles
As we age, we can experience dental problems that we may not have experienced before. For instance, the tooth enamel can wear down over time, darkening teeth by exposing the dentin, the dark underlayer beneath the enamel. Dental injuries or decay can damage the natural enamel or result in tooth loss.
Cosmetic and restorative dental care can help restore the aesthetics and function of the smile. We also work with patients to provide full restorations or smile makeovers if they have multiple cosmetic or restorative problems. Our offices provide take-home Opalescence GO whitening trays, a convenient treatment that uses active ingredients like hydrogen peroxide to whiten the tooth enamel. Dental veneers and bonding can address deeply stained teeth, tooth gaps, and tooth damage.
We will often recommend implants and restorations like dental bridges and dentures if patients have one or more missing teeth. Our in-house implant surgeon can place implants and provide bone grafting or sinus augmentation surgery to ensure patients have lasting, functional implants. Additionally, our offices work with Niche Dental Studio to create natural-looking restorations.
We are proud to offer consistent, comprehensive care for patients as they age to improve their oral health and ensure their smiles stay bright and functional.
