Monrovia FAQ

Why do I need a deep cleaning?

If you have gum disease, a preventive cleaning isn’t enough to manage the extent of infection that is present. A deep cleaning is more complex, focusing on one area of the mouth at a time and carefully removing all buildup from each root surface. Without this careful process, the bacterial plaque and tarter would continue causing gum detachment and eventually tooth loss.

Are your braces offered by a true orthodontic specialist?

Yes! Unlike most family dental offices that offer orthodontics, our braces are all managed by our in-house orthodontist. You’ll get the most comprehensive level of care possible.

Can I whiten my teeth?

Whitening is a great way to boost your self-esteem and help your smile look younger. It’s safe for both adults and teens, but first it’s important to make sure you’re free of cavities or other conditions. Ask our dentists which whitening method is right for you.

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants are designed to last an entire lifetime. They are more durable and have a longer life expectancy than any other type of dental restoration.

Which types of braces do you offer?

Monrovia Family Dentistry offers both traditional braces as well as clear orthodontics.

Is it possible to make payments on my treatment?

Absolutely. We offer in-house discounts as well as financing options for all of your care needs.

What type of comfort dentistry do you offer?

We are happy to provide nitrous oxide on request during any dental visit. Nitrous oxide is a safe, effective way to feel more relaxed while you’re in the dental chair.
