Will Professional Teeth Cleaning Hurt?
Dental cleaning isn’t painful if your teeth are in relatively good health, although you may feel some slight pressure when the dentist scrapes and polishes the teeth. If there is an excessive build-up of plaque or tartar, we may have to scrub harder or use dental instruments to clean along the gumline. This may cause a bit of tenderness, but it should be mild and subside within a day.
The sensitivity you feel depends on how well you care for your teeth in-between visits. If you brush and floss properly every day, a dental cleaning at our office will not be uncomfortable, and you will leave with teeth that look and feel smooth and polished.
Can I eat after professional teeth cleaning?
Yes, you can eat and drink after having your teeth cleaned, although you should wait about 30 minutes if you have had a fluoride treatment. This gives the fluoride time to be fully absorbed by your teeth. If your teeth are sensitive after cleaning, avoid highly acidic, crunchy, and hard foods that could irritate the teeth and gums until the next day.
