If it’s been a while since you’ve seen a dentist for a teeth cleaning, or you have dental anxiety and are worried that your upcoming teeth cleaning and oral exam at Clermont Family Dentistry will hurt, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s discuss the basics of teeth cleanings and whether or not they hurt.
At our office, we will always do our best to keep you feeling safe and comfortable. Rest assured that teeth cleanings do not hurt. You may experience some very slight discomfort due to scraping sensations when your teeth are being scaled, or a tiny bit of pressure if you need to have your gums probed to check for gum disease.
However, you won’t feel any pain, and you’ll be able to get the care you need to avoid future dental procedures, such as fillings or periodontal care, that are significantly more invasive. That makes routine teeth cleanings a great idea, even if you’re nervous about going to the dentist or have dental anxiety.
Not sure what to expect from your appointment at Clermont Family Dentistry? Let’s break down what happens at a teeth cleaning appointment, step-by-step.
We can accommodate patients with dental anxiety. If you’d like to listen to music, bring in a blanket, or take any other steps that will help you feel more comfortable at our office, we’d be happy to help you do so.
In addition, we even offer nitrous sedation, so you can be sedated during your cleaning if you have severe anxiety and do not think you can get through it without sedation. For more information or to schedule a consultation, just give us a call at (352) 242-1763 or contact us online.
