Is Deep Dental Cleaning Painful?

Posted on 8/22/2022 by Moyer Office
Is Deep Dental Cleaning Painful?Teeth that are sensitive and have the slightest disturbance, can lead to pain. Teeth sensitivity is one of the main reasons why people are concerned about visiting the dentist. We all know that different dental surgeries can leave you in quite some discomfort. However, few people consider what it is like to have their teeth deep cleaned. Deep cleaning is one of the ways to ensure that you get rid of plaque and prevent possible bacterial growth. However, deep cleaning is a tough process and those who wish to undertake it should consider how it feels.

How Deep Cleaning Works

Deep cleaning is a once-in-a-year dental procedure that is procured on personal preferences. Although no one will push you to undergo deep cleaning, it is in your best interest to get your teeth deep cleaned at least once each year. This process has been found to be very helpful in preventing gum disease and other conditions that arise from dirt in the teeth.

What Makes Deep Cleaning Uncomfortable

Deep cleaning can possibly be uncomfortable for two main reasons. First, the dentist might touch the tooth's root in the process. Secondly, the dentist must clean beneath the gums where plaque and dirt hide. This aggravation of the sensitive parts of your teeth can lead to some soreness and sensitivity after the process. However, the entire process happens under local anesthesia to prevent pain.

How Long Does Deep Cleaning Soreness Last

After deep cleaning, you should expect to feel some soreness within 12 to 4 hours of the procedure. This does not mean that you will feel unbearable pain. The soreness should be pretty mild and will go away within 24 hours. Do not worry about the pain if you are planning to undergo deep cleaning. In most cases, you won't feel anything.
