Common Questions About Dental Cleanings and Exams

How long does a dental exam and cleaning take?

The length of these services may vary a bit, depending on whether we take X-rays or provide any preventive services like dental sealants. Usually, though, we can complete an exam and cleaning in about an hour. You may need to allow more time if it’s been a long time since you’ve seen a dentist.

How soon after my cleaning can I eat?

There’s no reason to wait to eat after your cleaning. However, your teeth and gums may be a little sensitive. So, you may want to avoid extremely hot, cold, or acidic food and beverages for a few hours. Be sure to ask your dentist if you have any concerns about what you can eat or drink after your appointment.

Do dental cleanings hurt?

Dental cleanings involve the removal of plaque, tartar, and stains from your teeth using specialized tools. You may experience slight pressure or vibrations during the cleaning, but it should not be painful. If you have sensitive teeth or gums, your dental hygienist can adjust the cleaning technique to ensure your comfort. Regular dental cleanings are important for maintaining oral health and preventing more serious issues, so you should attend them regularly.
