Good Oral Care

Monroe Family Dentistry is a general dentistry practice that teaches its patients how to practice good oral hygiene in order to keep their teeth and mouths healthy. Dr. Khalil is great with patients and loves teaching people about oral hygiene. Alongside your daily brushing and flossing, regular dental exams and cleanings are vitally important in keeping your teeth healthy, strong, and looking their best.  Our dental exams include an evaluation by Dr. Khalil, digital X-rays, and consultations on any issues that are spotted so you can make the most informed choice on how to proceed with necessary treatment.  If you let too much time go between dental exams and cleanings, plaque and tooth decay can slowly build.

It is important to start a good oral hygiene routine. When children have good oral hygiene routine, then they will continue with the same routine for the rest of their lives, and always have strong, beautiful teeth.

The Importance of Routine Check-Ups

During a routine visit, your dentist examines your teeth and gums to determine if you have any cavities or other oral problems. Your dental hygienist will also cleans your teeth and get rid of all of the plaque that is residing in your mouth. It is important to see your dentist every six months in order to keep your teeth healthy and strong. To ensure healthy teeth, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends their 1st visit by 12 months old.

Dental problems are important, and can also lead to major health concerns if not addressed. Accidents occur anytime of the day or night. Monroe Family Dentistry accepts emergencies and walk-ins.

Fluoride

On a daily basis, your teeth experience a loss and gain of vital minerals that keep them healthy and strong.  Several of these core minerals include calcium, phosphate, and fluoride. When too much mineral loss occurs, your teeth can weaken. Fluoride is a natural mineral found in much of your daily food and water intake, and is one of the most important factors in maintaining tooth health.
