"The Texas Center for Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry is the best in the Houston area. Dr. Lewis is well respected in the Sports industry by being the Houston Astros, Houston Rockets, and many other professional athletes team dentist. Everywhere you look you can see the sports memorabilia of the athletes Dr. Lewis has worked with. I play in the New York Yankees Organization so it is very encouraging to see that, and it shows that Dr. Lewis is one of the best in the country. Last week I received a full cleaning and zoom whitening treatment. When Dr. Lewis did the final checkup, he introduced the new Under Armour Mouthpiece. A lot of professional baseball players are using this product, and I can't wait to get mine in a week. The atmosphere and people that work there really make it a great time. You can't go wrong when you choose this place. "- E.C. / Google / Feb 22, 2016

A dental cleaning is usually done before a dental exam. During the dental cleaning, the hygienist removes any tartar or plaque buildup from the teeth with professional instruments. Next, the teeth are cleaned and polished to remove stains and brighten the enamel. A dental cleaning is usually performed without anesthesia, but patients with concerns, like a strong gag reflex or anxieties, may talk to their dentist about adding a form of sedation. Then, our dentist will check for any signs of decay, cavities, or other dental problems.
Most patients should schedule a dental cleaning twice a year or about every 6 months. However, patients with excessive tartar and plaque buildup should talk to their dentist about more frequent cleanings.
Some patients who are at higher risk for tooth decay may receive fluoride treatments as part of their dental cleaning. Fluoride treatments are a quick preventative measure that can help patients, especially young children, avoid future cavities.
Special Care After Cleanings?
After a dental cleaning, dentists recommended that patients abstain from eating or drinking for up to an hour. Following this, there are no special instructions, but patients should follow a healthy dental regimen of daily brushing and flossing combined with regular dental exams and cleanings at the dentist.
