Super Smooth Dental Cleaning In Houston, Texas

Trust the team that’s dedicated to your oral health

Maintaining healthy teeth and gums is essential to both your smile and your overall health, but here at Nu Dentistry, we know it’s almost impossible to do it alone. That’s why we recommend you visit our office for general dental cleanings and exams every 3, 4, or 6 months, depending on your dental history.

We’ve seen from experience that just brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing can’t stop bacteria and plaque from building up. If left alone too long, this can lead to painful and costly problems like cavities, bleeding gums, gum disease, and even tooth loss!

We want to protect your beautiful smile, and the best way to do so is through prevention and early detection. We’re not just focused on reacting to ongoing emergencies but on making sure they’re never needed.

If problems do arise, we’re ready to catch them during dental exams when they first appear and treat them before they become bigger headaches. Frequent dental cleanings and exams not only ensure optimal future dental health, but also saves you money in the long run.

If you’re ready for your next dental cleaning and exam appointment, click here or call our office at (832) 916-4144 to schedule yours today!

Become Accustomed to
State-of-the-Art Dental Technology

We take out the uncertainty to ensure you’re always comfortable during your appointment

Nu Dentistry is dedicated to your oral health, and we use our state-of-the-art technologies to make sure that nothing escapes our notice. Count on us to stop cavities in their tracks and to treat any existing issues so you can be proud of your smile. Your appointment will be two-fold. Starting with a physical exam of your mouth, both with digital scans and a set of keen eyes, we’ll diagnose any issues you may have with your dental hygiene. During your cleaning, your hygienist will prevent future ones from arising by clearing your teeth and gums of plaque and tartar.

Your hygienist will use a scaler around your gum line and floss between your teeth to scrape away buildup, which may cause some discomfort or bleeding if you’ve fallen behind in your oral hygiene. If you have experienced dental anxiety in the past, rest assured that our dentists and hygienists are gentle when it comes to cleaning your teeth. We also have an array of alternative services we can perform during your appointment. We want to make sure you’re always satisfied during your time with us. Some of our services include:

  • Laser Cleanings
  • Mouth Rinses
  • Sealants
  • X-Rays

What If I Have Sensitive Teeth?

Nu Dentists are here to make your dental experience easy

Having sensitive teeth can be frustrating to deal with. Not only do you have to watch your diet and the way you take care of your teeth, but they can even make normally painless procedures like exams and cleanings something to dread! That’s not the case with Nu Dentistry. We take all of your needs into account. Our first-rate hygienists and dentists

always make sure that you’re comfortable and at ease when it comes to your time in the dentist chair. Whether it’s during your general cleaning or a deeper cleaning under your gums, we can provide you with light anesthesia such as laughing gas or sedation, to help you relax and make your dental maintenance a breeze.

  • What Is A Deep Cleaning?

    We ensure your smile stays intact with deep cleanings


    When performing your general cleaning, your hygienist might decide that you may need a deep cleaning as well. A deep cleaning is a treatment that, just like with your general cleaning, will clear your teeth of hardened plaque and tartar, only it’ll go a little deeper—into your gums and down to the bottom of your roots. There’s no surgery or invasive treatment involved.

    Completing your treatment may take several visits. We want to be as thorough as possible, making sure that your gums are fully free from plaque buildup.

  • Prevent and Treat Periodontal Disease

    But is it really as important as your dentist says? Yes!


    Deep cleanings aren’t something you should put off because they’re essential to prevent and treat periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is a more severe form of gingivitis that happens when plaque and tartar spread under your gums, causing infection and inflammation. At its worst, it can cause teeth to loosen or fall out of your gums, which is both a patient’s and dentist’s worst nightmare!

    Nearly half of all adults over the age of 30 have some form of gum disease, and that number only goes up with age. If you notice that your gums bleed when you floss, contact your dentist right away because you may have periodontal disease.

  • Is laser dental cleaning better?

    Laser dental cleaning works just as well as traditional tools but without all the traditional loud and pointy tools you don’t like. They’re the least invasive form of teeth cleaning, and there’s less of a chance for bleeding or inflammation to occur. If you prefer your hygienist work with lasers, let us know and we’ll be happy to accommodate you.

  • How often should you get a deep cleaning?

    You should get a deep cleaning as often as your dentist recommends. Because it can only treat, not cure gum disease, regular cleanings are necessary to properly maintain and contain your periodontal disease. Otherwise the infection can spread to cause bone and tooth loss.

  • Is it painful to get a deep cleaning at the dentist?

    Because deep cleanings go further than your normal teeth cleaning, it can be slightly uncomfortable or painful. To make sure you’re never less than completely at ease, we’ll prepare you with an anesthetic that will numb your gums and make the entire process painless. If you’re at all nervous, we can also administer a light sedation like laughing gas that will keep both your mind and body relaxed.

  • Does oral health affect overall health?

    Oral health does affect your overall health! Not only can early symptoms of diseases like diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis first start in your mouth, but bad oral hygiene has been linked to causing heart disease, strokes, pneumonia, and complications during pregnancy.

  • Does dental cleaning loosen teeth?

    No. Even with a deep cleaning, you can rest assured that your teeth will stay safely rooted to your mouth. However, periodontal disease, which deep cleanings help prevent, can infect your gums badly enough to loosen your teeth or, worse, make them fall out!

  • Is it OK to go to the dentist once a year?

    Without professional help, plaque and bacteria can build up unchecked to cause cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal disease. In order to keep your teeth healthy, you should visit the dentist for a cleaning and exam every 6 months at the latest. Based on your dental work and history, your dentist may recommend that you come in more frequently, such as every 3 or 4 months because you may be more at risk of further problems.
