Our Clinic & Technology
At Monument Family Dentistry, we believe a healthy, bright smile is best achieved in a fun, compassionate, and home-like environment.
We understand that many patients can feel weary when it’s time to visit the dentist. We strive to make every patient feel relaxed and at home during their visit. Utilizing Solea Laser technology on many of our procedures, patients no longer need to endure anesthesia or noisy, uncomfortable drilling. We also use a 3D panoramic X-ray machine to help with diagnostics and get an accurate and in-depth look at the oral cavity.
We never rush our patients. That’s why we’ll get to know you on a personal level to help you achieve your best smile now and for years to come. We look forward to meeting you!

Sensitive Teeth Treatment
Tooth sensitivity is an issue dental patients of all ages face. With proactive measures, Monument Family Dentistry can help you treat and prevent tooth sensitivity.
Let the following information inform you on everything you need to know about tooth sensitivity and how to treat and prevent it!
What Causes Tooth Sensitivity?
When the protective enamel layer wears away, it exposes our teeth and nerve endings to the surrounding environment and everything we consume.
Tooth enamel can wear away with age but is also caused by:
- High Acidic Diet
- Over-the-Counter Teeth Whiteners
- Teeth Grinding
- Gum Disease
- Gum Recession
- Cracked Tooth or Crown
How Do You Treat & Prevent Tooth Sensitivity?
We can recommend special fluoride gels, toothpaste, and desensitizing pastes to help you manage your discomfort and restore your enamel. For severe cases, we can administer fluoride treatment to restore the tooth enamel faster. We also treat gingivitis and periodontitis and provide custom-made mouthguards for patients who grind their teeth.
