About Dental Cleanings
In order to properly preserve teeth and gums and secure optimal oral health, a comprehensive dental cleaning is suggested at least twice a year. During a cleaning, the meticulous dentists at Cosmetic Dental Associates in Houston, Texas will use professional-grade equipment to provide the cleaning of a lifetime. They not only clean the visible surfaces of the teeth and gums, but below the gum line where at-home care just can’t reach. Removing this bacteria and debris prevents issues, such as cavities, gingivitis, and other oral conditions. Afterwards, a patient will be left with an unbelievably clean feeling, along with a more dazzling smile.

"- J. / Demandforce / Dec 17, 2013
"Wonderful as usual. I like Dr. Davis' integrity. He doesn't recommend work that isn't necessary. My hygienist was so friendly and gentle. I almost didn't mind getting my teeth cleaned. (I still would rather be having glass of wine on a beautiful patio).The office staff was efficient and warm. Thanks. "- D. / Demandforce / May 05, 2014
"I arrived right at my appointment time and did not even sit down in the waiting room--they were ready for me. This means a lot--they respect my time! I also like that they have the latest techology for cleaning teeth (as they do for all their procedures). No discomfort whatsoever. The 'reserved for Spiker Davis patients' parking spaces in the garage makes it convenient, too. They even had my insurance claim form completed for me to submit. "- M. / Demandforce / Jun 11, 2014
"Dr. Riley was excellent. He made me feel very comfortable as a patient and explained everything, right from the diagnosis to the prescribed medication, in great detail. It was a very good experience as I was very nervous about my toothache and the cause behind it. "- A. / SmileReminder / Apr 02, 2015

What to Expect
Dental cleanings usually start with an examination of the patient’s teeth. During the examination, the dentist will look for any signs of damage, cavities, or decay. The patient’s teeth are cleaned to remove any plaque and tartar buildup, followed by a deep clean and polish with professional dental tools. Patient will have the opportunity to discuss the health status of their teeth with their dentist as well as discuss home dental health suggestions.
After receiving cleaning services at the dentist, patients should maintain optimal oral hygiene using the recommendations provided by his office during their treatment. Patients should brush their teeth twice a day, use mouthwash, and floss. If given special instructions or items to use by or office, such as specific mouthwash or toothpaste, patients should follow the directions given and schedule an appointment for follow-up.
Considered a form of preventative health care, most insurance companies cover some, if not all of the cost of a routine cleaning. Our office will check with the patient’s insurance policy before sending a bill to the patient of any remaining payment due. The overall cost for a cleaning varies among dental practices and is also determined based on the condition of the patient’s teeth. If covering the cost out of pocket, patients should expect to pay between $50 and $135.
