Does dental cleaning hurt?

Dental cleaning is usually not a painful procedure for patients. In fact, the techniques used are designed to gently remove areas affected by plaque and tartar. However, some patients may experience sensitivity, especially those with dental hypersensitivity. In these cases, local anesthesia can be applied to ensure their comfort during the procedure. Additionally, for patients experiencing discomfort, there is the option to use a special toothpaste that helps significantly reduce pain.

At Dental Home, we are committed to providing a comfortable and stress-free dental cleaning experience for all our patients.

Step-by-step dental cleaning:

The deep cleaning consists of 3 procedures:

  1. Supragingival scaling: It is the ultrasonic removal of calcified plaque attached to the tooth structure near the gum, commonly known as dental calculus, which cannot be removed with a toothbrush during routine cleaning. It is performed with a scaler or ultrasonic equipment to improve inflammation, gum bleeding, and halitosis.
  1. Removal of extrinsic stains: It is the removal of dental stains generated by the consumption of coffee, dark beverages, or by cigarette smoking habit. This is done with the prophyjet equipment, which expels water under pressure with a powder based on flavored sodium bicarbonate that removes pigmented surfaces.
  2. Prophylaxis: It is the final finishing, polishing, and shining of the dental enamel, performed with a prophylactic brush and prophylactic paste.
