Life can get busy in Pearland. Sometimes it seems impossible to keep up with everything you need to do. At David C. Montz DDS, PA & Associates – Family, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, we understand that. But we encourage you to think twice before you cancel or postpone a dental checkup with a Pearland Dentist because you think it’s less important than the other twenty things on your to-do list.
Twice-yearly dental exams are indispensable for keeping your smile in prime shape! “But my teeth feel fine.” We’ve heard this excuse before. The fact is that no news isn’t necessarily good news. Dental problems can be progressing without you being aware of it.
- 1. Your Gums May Be Receding – Gum recession doesn’t happen all at once. Gum tissue can move back almost imperceptibly until teeth and bone are in jeopardy.
- 2. Decay May Be Lurking – When the acids in plaque start drilling into a tooth, we usually don’t feel it until it has passed through the enamel and dentin and hits the nerve. Ouch! By that time, there is a crater in the tooth. Regular cleanings with you Pearland Dentist can remove plaque before it can do any damage to your teeth.
- 3. Prevent Oral Cancer – About 50,000 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year. Dr. Montz will screen for oral cancer during your exam. As with all types of cancer, early diagnosis is essential.
After your entire mouth has been examined, Dr. Montz will detail what is needed moving forward. Whether that’s flossing more often or discussing major fixes such as braces, we will make certain that you get all the information you need to ensure your smile is bright and beautiful!

Montz DDS, PA & Associates – Family, Cosmetic, and Implant Dentistry, will ensure you avoid severe dental problems.
