Dental Exam & Cleaning
Having excellent oral hygiene is not only important for maintaining a nice smile, but for your overall health as well. Gum diseases and periodontal disease can lead to other heath related issues such as heart disease and stroke.
We can help you prevent dental health issues before they become larger problems. Routine cleanings rid the mouth of harmful plaque and bacteria, so you can maintain a healthy smile.
Night & Athletic Mouth Guards
Teeth grinding is a very common problem. This can lead to jaw pain, headaches, loss of jaw bone and even breakdown of ligaments and your enamel shape. Night guards can help with teeth grinding, teeth clenching as well as snoring. Monarch Dentistry offers mouth guards and night guards that are customized and designed for your individual needs.
If you’re involved in sports and high-impact physical activities, our custom fitted athletic mouthguards can protect your teeth and jaw from impact and damage. Contact Monarch Dentistry to find out more about custom mouth guards.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Wisdom tooth extraction is a common surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdom teeth. If a wisdom tooth doesn't have room to grow (impacted wisdom tooth), resulting in pain, infection or other dental problems, you'll likely need to have it pulled. Early removal is usually recommended to avoid such issues and to lower the surgical risk.
Root canal therapy can save a tooth that has become severely infected or decayed. Inflammation or infection of teeth can have a variety of causes: deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. If inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess. Signs that a root canal may be needed include prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, discoloration of the tooth and swollen or tender gums.
Amalgam Free Fillings
At Monarch Dentistry we offer mercury-free amalgam fillings. Amalgam-free alternatives are available for many dental techniques, including fillings and crowns. Best of all, if you need more difficult treatments like a root canal or implants, we will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan that is mercury-free.
