    Relax. It’s Not The End Of The World.

    root canal sedation Pearland

    Today’s David C. Montz DDS, PA & Associates – Family, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry post addresses one of the most feared dental procedures: the infamous root canal. If you are told that you need a root canal, don’t panic. Your dentist recommends this procedure when it is better for your tooth than the alternatives.

    A successful root canal (or endodontic treatment in dental-speak) can save a tooth and prevent the need for an extraction followed by a dental bridge, dental implant, or gap in your smile.

    If, after a thorough evaluation, Dr. Montz determines that a tooth is going to need a root canal, Dr. Montz will explain the procedure and costs that are involved. Root canals are handled to save an infected tooth. If not treated, abscesses and complete tooth loss may occur.

    During the procedure, your dentist will remove the nerve and pulp, and then clean and disinfect the interior of your tooth – the canal. The next step is filling and sealing the cleaned area with a special rubbery material, and then protecting the restored tooth with a crown or filling.

    Root canals have the reputation of being painful, but this is not the case anymore. There are several effective pain management methods available today at David C. Montz DDS, PA & Associates – Family, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry. From local painkillers and numbing agents to oral sedation, we will make sure you are comfortable during the procedure. Once the infected tissue is removed, your dentist will focus on helping the oral site heal, which may require another visit.

    If you have a tooth that is bothering you, call Dr. Montz now at 832-895-5120 for an appointment.

    If you are unfamiliar with our services at David C. Montz DDS, PA & Associates – Family, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, be sure to visit our website at https://www.pearlandsmiles.com/about-us.html to get more details.  Dr. David C.

    We would love to have a consultation and develop a comprehensive treatment plan for you. Your smile is our number one priority, make it yours as well and you will be healthier and happier.

    When Mommy Is Scared Of The Dentist

    sleep dentistry Houston

    If you are dreading some upcoming dental treatment, you may want to consider oral conscious sedation. First off, oral conscious sedation or sleep dentistry is perfectly safe. At David C. Montz DDS, PA & Associates – Family, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, we have been providing sedation since 1997. We offer different levels of sedation and a choice of medication including oral analgesics, nitrous oxide, and IV sedation.

    When choosing a type of sedation, it is helpful to consider the type of anxiety (fear of immobility, fear of loss of control, fear of pain, etc), the specific procedure(s) you will undergo, the length of time needed to complete the treatment, past experiences during treatment, and any complicating health issues. Call 832-895-5120 to schedule a consultation with Dr. David C. Montz to discuss your options.

    Perhaps you have a dentist-wary child who needs treatment. For simple dental procedures, topical anesthetics are applied to the gums and other tissues reducing sensation. If your child requires more sedation, nitrous oxide and general anesthesia are both safe options.

    Perhaps Mommy is the one who is anxious about her child undergoing dental work. Sorry – we can’t sedate you while your child is being treated – but you can take comfort in the fact that we take excellent care of our youngest patients. We make sure they are comfortable, relaxed, and understand exactly what is going to happen. Our team of child-friendly dental professionals have been putting children at ease since 1997.

    Regular dental check-ups are important for your child’s lifelong oral health, so it is important that your child has a positive experience during dental visits. If possible, don’t let your child know that you have dental anxiety. If he/she already knows, explain why your fears are unreasonable and why you are having treatment regardless of your anxiety. Show them how brave Mommy is because she wants healthy teeth.

    David C. Montz DDS, PA & Associates – Family, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry offers full-service dental care including porcelain veneers, sleep apnea, and sedation dentistry.

    Toothbrush Wars In Pearland

    Toothbrush Wars in Houston

    It may surprise you to know that some people have very strong opinions about which type of toothbrush is the best: manual or electric. Is there really one that is clearly better?

    Most cosmetic dentists will tell you that all toothbrushes, when used correctly, are effective in removing plaque and that choosing which kind you like is really up to you.

    Today in the Pearland dental blog, we want to give you some extra information about toothbrushes to help you pick which kind is right for you or your child.

    You need to consider cost and convenience.
    Some argue that even though electric toothbrushes are more pricey, you’ll save on dental bills. However, there are no definitive studies to back up this claim.

    Manual toothbrushes are easy to find, whereas not all drugstores carry all types of electric toothbrushes. This can be difficult when buying replacement heads. People who travel may find that a smaller, manual toothbrush is easier to pack (and batteries are not required).

    The pressure you put on your gums with either type of toothbrush is essential. Some say that it’s difficult to know how much pressure to use with electric toothbrushes, while others say that, because of the quick electrical movements, they tend to be more gentle on their gums than when they use manual brushes. You may want to try them both to see what your brushing style is and discuss it with your dentist.

    Special consideration should be taken for people with arthritis. Most dentists advise their elderly and arthritic patients to use electric toothbrushes when their manual dexterity is diminished.

    As for children, once they are old enough, an electric toothbrush may be preferable, but safety should always be the first concern for parents. Make sure you look for the ADA seal on any dental product you buy. Whichever type of toothbrush you choose, make sure you get soft bristles and replace it every three to four months.

    7 Ways Bonding Can Beautify

    Houston Cosmetic Dentist

    Dental bonding is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in the Houston area, but many patients don’t know exactly what it is. Today in the David C. Montz DDS, PA & Associates – Family, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry dental blog, we explain 7 ways dental bonding is used in cosmetic dentistry.

    The dental bonding procedure uses a resin material that is sturdy and tooth-colored. It is applied to the teeth while soft, like putty, and then hardened or set with a special light. The material bonds with the tooth and can then be shaped and polished.

    Dentists will usually consider the option of bonding when 1) decayed, 2) chipped, or 3) cracked teeth need to be repaired.

    4) Large spaces between teeth can be filled with bonding material, and 5) roots can be protected by bonding after gums recede.

    6) Discolored teeth can also be improved using the bonding process, and, since the material is easily shaped, teeth can be made to 7) look longer or just have the general shape changed. Bonding is often used, along with teeth whitening as part of a total smile makeover.

    Hi. I’m Dr. David C. Montz, of David C. Montz DDS, PA & Associates – Family, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Pearland.  My practice offers the following services:

    sedation dentistry
    CEREC dental crowns
    porcelain veneers
    teeth whitening

    And more! So, if you are in the Friendswood, Alvin, or Manvel area and are in need of dental care or have cosmetic dentistry questions, please give us a call at 832-895-5120.

    We hope to hear from you soon!

    6 Reasons To Ditch Your Dentures For Dental Implants

    Implant dentures Pearland

    For thousands of years, dentures have been allowing people to chew foods harder than mashed bananas and flash some teeth when they smile. However, Pearland denture wearers know how unstable, irritating, embarrassing, and inconvenient they can be.

    Today, dental patients with missing teeth are fortunate to have a tooth replacement choice that is far better than both traditional dentures and dental bridges. A tooth implant provides the total package, so to speak. An implant replaces the visible part of the tooth and – this is key – also the root.

    The dental implant process works like this: A super-strong titanium post is anchored directly into the jawbone. An abutment is then attached to the post. Finally, a crown or denture is attached to the abutment. Tooth implants provide the following benefits:

    Stability – Implants don’t move around in your mouth.  This permits normal chewing, swallowing, and speech.
    Bone Retention – The post prevents the bone loss that almost always occurs after a tooth is extracted
    Dental implants prevent jaw muscle dysfunction that can occur when remaining teeth are forced to compensate for missing teeth
    Tooth implants eliminate gum irritation caused by dentures
    No need for denture relines
    No denture adhesive needed (Remember, they are anchored in your jawbone just like natural teeth!)

    Dental implant patients with one or two missing teeth can replace each missing tooth with a permanent implant. Those with significant tooth loss are usually best served with an implant-anchored denture.

    If you want more information about tooth implant costs in Pearland or cosmetic dental financing, call David C. Montz DDS, PA & Associates – Family, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry at 832-895-5120. We’re a full-service general and cosmetic dental practice dedicated to preventative dental care. We offer:

    3 Ways To Keep Your Mouth Happy!

    Pearland Teeth Bleaching

    Hi. I’m Dr. David C. Montz, an experienced dentist here in Pearland. It is my goal to help my patients have optimum oral health, and today I would like to talk about something else associated with our mouths that doesn’t get as much attention as cavities or cosmetic dentistry: it’s our sense of taste.

    A happy mouth is not only a healthy mouth, but also a mouth that can enjoy the flavors of all types of foods. And it turns out that many of the habits that will keep your taste buds sensitive are those that will also be good for your teeth and gums. So here are a few tips to help you better enjoy the flavor of your food.

    1) Treat dry mouth. Dry mouth can create a loss of taste sensitivity, so it should be treated quickly. Plus, optimal levels of saliva are important to avoid cavities and keep gums healthy.

    2) Avoid processed foods with fake flavors and too much sugar and salt. They will quickly desensitize you to more subtle, healthy flavors.

    3) Don’t smoke! Cigarettes are responsible for so many horrible health issues, but many people don’t realize that their sense of taste is dulled while they smoke and the olfactory nerves can even be damaged permanently.

    Thank you so much for visiting the Pearland dentist blog. Along with dental health and a keen sense of taste, I want my patients to have the beautiful smile they have always desired. So, if you have any questions regarding cosmetic dentistry such as smile makeovers, dental implants or teeth whitening, please contact us. We are located at 2443 S Galveston Ave  and you can reach us for an appointment at 832-895-5120.
