What Is General Dentistry?

Whether you are in need of restorative treatments or just a routine check-up, we are here to care for you and your family’s smiles. Dr. Montroy encourages patients to visit our dental office in Watauga, TX, every six months for an exam and routine cleaning to maintain a healthy smile.


As a general dentist, Dr. Montroy is required to have either a DDS degree or a DMD degree. The two degrees are identical. To become a general dentist, you must have completed at least three years of undergraduate studies.

How Often Should I Go to the Dentist?

Dr. Montroy recommends that you visit the dentist every six months. The lower your risks of dental issues, the longer you can wait between appointments.

What Should I Expect During My Dentist Visit?

At your appointment, Dr. Montroy will inspect the condition of your teeth and perform the following:


  • Take X-rays of your teeth if needed 

  • Our oral hygienist will use special tools to gently clean the tartar along your gum line

  • Review your x-rays and ask questions about symptoms or discomfort should you have any

  • Recommend a treatment plan if necessary

Is Fluoride Toothpaste Safe?

Fluoride is a safe, natural element found in water, soil, and air. It’s often added to drinking water around the world to help prevent cavities. Although it can be toxic if large amounts are consumed, it’s absolutely safe in drinking water and toothpaste. Fluoride has been proven to strengthen and protect your teeth.

How Often Should I Brush & Floss My Teeth?

The American Dental Association and Dr. Montroy recommend brushing your teeth twice daily for two minutes with fluoridated toothpaste.

You should floss between your teeth at least once a day too. For extra maintenance, rinse your mouth with warm water between meals to eliminate bacteria-causing particles.

How Can I Prevent Dental Decay For My Family?

Starting good oral hygiene habits as soon as possible saves your family money, time, and discomfort. Each family member should brush their teeth twice daily with fluoridated toothpaste and floss once daily. These daily oral hygiene habits are beneficial in preventing dental decay.


Here are some tips for avoiding tooth decay:


  • Brush your teeth twice a day

  • Floss your teeth once a day

  • Visit the dentist every six months for check-ups and cleanings

  • Avoid consuming starchy, sugary foods and sugary, acidic drinks

  • Rinse your mouth with water between meals

  • Avoid home teeth-whitening kits and visit us instead for professional teeth whitening

We also provide at home preventative care options such as StellaLife®.

Benefits & Advantages of Dental Exams & Cleanings

Regular dental exams and routine cleanings are imperative for preventative dentistry, and the goal is to avoid oral health issues and keep your teeth and gums healthy.


A healthy mouth also protects your body from other medical conditions. Oral infections can spread to the vital organs in your body. Therefore, monitoring your dental health can help detect existing symptoms in your overall health that might go unnoticed otherwise.

Additionally, having regular exams and cleanings can help save you money in the long run. You'll avoid costly dental procedures later by making sure your oral health stays in good shape.
