The most common side effects of a professional teeth cleaning vary depending upon your oral health. Opting out of a professional oral care cleaning because of perceived negative ramifications is no laughing matter. Proper professional oral care cleanings offer a host of benefits but at the same time to be an informed consumer it's best to know what to expect when moving forward with professional oral care cleanings. First can professional teeth cleaning weaken teeth? The answer is no. The purpose of a professional teeth cleaning is to remove excess tartar, calculus deposits or hard coatings and plaque (mucosa with bacteria) from the teeth, making the teeth smooth, clean and polished. By cleaning and polishing the surface of the teeth, the dentist can remove any rough and sticky areas on the gums, thereby preventing bacteria from adhering and growing there, causing gum disease. Regular professional cleaning of your teeth does not cause any side effects to your health, and it is recommended that you do so because it is beneficial and offers many advantages.
A professional cleaning can keep your teeth healthy. Keeping your teeth healthy means better chewing function and ultimately improved health as well as early detection of dental problems. Your dentist will be able to spot any early signs of tooth or gum problems in the process, making any abnormalities found easy to treat. Throughout a professional cleaning, your dentist will ensure that you maintain good oral health by visual inspection and comparing previous dental inspections. If your oral hygiene is sub-optimal, your dentist will help you get it back on the right path. Your dentist can remove most of the tobacco, coffee, and tea stains during the cleaning process, and he or she will also polish your teeth to a beautiful normal shine, making your smile brighter. Good oral hygiene is essential to prevent bad breath. Regular inspection and cleaning is the best way to ensure good oral hygiene. Professional teeth cleaning helps keep your teeth and gums healthy and may reduces your risk of certain oral diseases.
Now on to the most common side effects of a professional teeth cleaning (post-operative symptoms of a professional teeth cleaning). Sensitive teeth: ones teeth may be covered with plaque and calculus for a prolonged period, which may cause the gums to shrink. Once the calculus layer is removed, the teeth are exposed to air and food. This is one of the most common side effects. This tooth sensitivity usually lasts a few days to couple weeks. The duration and intensity of this sensitivity depends on the individual's previous gum health. Compared to people who haven't seen a dentist for years, people who receive regular dental care may not have or only have very low sensitivity. This is a temporary side effect. After a deep cleaning, the gums may feel sore. This may lasts about a week to 10 days. Bacteria, plaque, and calculus sometimes appear under the gums. During the removal of these subgingival deposits; the gums may be sore. This is a temporary side effect. If needed, one may take some painkillers. Rarely, some patients bleed after a deep cleaning. Usually, after cleaning your teeth, your saliva may turn red. Bleeding occurs in people who have not received dental care for a long time and who have severe periodontitis after a deep cleaning. Scraping off the deposits and bacterial layers may cause slight swelling of the gums. It lasts a few days and usually improves on its own. If there is any infection, this condition rarely requires antibiotic treatment. There is always a small space between teeth. If you do not brush and floss, food deposits can form in these areas. The gums may recede, and plaque and calculus deposits covered these spaces. Cleaning your teeth will remove these food and bacterial deposits and you may find small gaps /voids. Sometimes the gums grow back and fill up these spaces.
Here is how you can take care of these side-effects. Your Dentist/hygienist may recommend using an anti-sensitivity or desensitizing toothpaste. There are many kinds of such toothpastes available over the counter. Your dental office may recommend antimicrobial mouthwash. Using the recommended mouthwash may help lower the gum disease causing bacteria in your mouth. You can do warm salt-water rinses 2-3 times in a day for few days. This will also protect from bacterial invasion and swelling. Over the counter pain killers may help alleviate pain or soreness. Most important step is to follow specific instructions given by your dentist or dental hygienist. Proper home care and good oral hygiene techniques of brushing and flossing should help.
