INSTRUCTIONS AFTER YOUR DEEP CLEANING IN Allen
When you have had a deep cleaning, your teeth and gums will be numb. Do not eat anything that you have to chew until this numbness has worn off.
PAIN AFTER A DEEP CLEANING
It is normal for the gums to feel a little swollen or sensitive in some areas. These are usually the areas where most tartar was removed. The swollen feeling will resolve within the first 24 -48 hours. You can take an over the counter pain medication like Advil or Tylenol to relieve the soreness. It is important to brush and floss your teeth thoroughly but not aggressively as instructed, even if there is tenderness or bleeding. After the first few days the swelling and bleeding should stop.
SENSITIVE TEETH AFTER DEEP CLEANING
When tartar is removed from the roots of the teeth, you may experience some sensitivity. The roots of your teeth are not covered by enamel because they are meant to be covered with bone. When bone and gums move away because of the tartar accumulation they are exposed and when the tartar is removed they are likely to become sensitive. You may first want to try an over the counter sensitivity toothpaste like Sensodyne, if this does not help, you can contact the office for a more potent sensitivity treatment.
