The Key to Dental Health

Keeping a regular preventative maintenance schedule with your hygienist and Dr. Ellison helps you prevent not only tooth decay and periodontal disease but also avoid costly procedures and extra time in the hygiene chair. If it has been months – or even years – since your last cleaning, you don’t need to feel embarrassed. Our office is a judgment-free office and Dr. Ellison encourages all patients to get back on track with regular visits.

Keeping routine dental habits at home, like brushing twice per day for two minutes each time, flossing daily, and using a mouthwash containing fluoride can make a huge difference in your oral health! In addition, there are other ways to improve the health of your teeth and gums. Because we all have different dental needs, our team can help recommend specific toothpaste, mouthwash, or flossing aids that will keep your smile bright and healthy for many years.

Enhance your daily hygiene routine by partnering with Dr. Susan Ellison for your regular dental exams and cleanings! Our dental team will not only recommend great dental habits but encourage you with tips for overall wellness by eating a healthy, balanced diet.

The Latest in Dental Imaging with 3D Scans

One way our office is set apart from other dental providers in Houston is our ability to provide 3D scans. With this latest technology, a 3D image of your teeth and your bite will allow us to show you exactly what we see when we do your exam. From the dental chair, you will be able to see on our computer any existing dental work, any cavities requiring attention, cracks in the teeth as well as wear and damage from the bite. We are able to also see the forces on the teeth and if any areas are hitting with too much force causing extensive wear that could be alleviated to prevent further damage.

We are thrilled to be able to offer 3D imaging to our patients.

Deep Teeth Cleaning in Houston

Our office is proud to care for all our patients without judgment. Our job and our commitment are to take the best care of you possible by starting with where you are now and putting a plan in place to get you healthy and happy with your smile at a pace that is comfortable for you.

If you need a deep cleaning it is very important to get this done in the beginning. Keeping the gums clean and healthy prevents bone loss and helps to support you in keeping your teeth for the long term. Once this is done, we recommend other tools to make it easier for you to keep your teeth as healthy as possible so that you do not require additional deep cleanings, which is our goal for you.
