  • After getting the cleaning done normally there is no pain if it do occur it subsides in a day or two. If plaque deposit is more or gums are inflammed and bleeding before the cleaning then some times sensitivity do occur but that too goes away in 3 to 4 days. For gum pain you can do warm saline rinses 2 to 3 times a day and can gently masssage the gms with some OTC available gum paint. You can use some desensitizing tooth paste also fhat wil reduce the sensitivity.
