If you hadn’t had your teeth professionally cleaned for some time, or if your teeth are overly sensitive in general, you may have experienced some tenderness after your cleaning session. The process will typically involve some scraping to remove any tartar that may have formed on your teeth, which can irritate the gum tissue. Dentists advise patients to continue their daily maintenance routine of brushing and flossing and to avoid particularly hard foods until the symptoms subside. Another tip – If you have a fluoride treatment as part of your appointment, wait for 30 minutes or so before eating. Learn more here about misaligned bites.
