Dental Cleaning: Can it be Uncomfortable?

Professional dental cleaning is a fundamental step in maintaining optimal oral health at BLASI Dental Clinic Barcelona. Despite maintaining good dental hygiene habits, bacteria and food residues continue to accumulate on the teeth and gums, forming dental plaque.

When this plaque hardens and becomes tartar, the only effective way to remove it is through a deep cleaning at our dental clinic. Tartar can lead to problems such as cavities and periodontitis, which affect dental health. For this reason, our periodontal health specialists recommend undergoing dental cleaning at least once a year, although the frequency may vary depending on each patient’s individual needs.

How long does a session at BLASI Dental Clinic Barcelona last?

The duration will depend on the level of tartar and plaque buildup, but it is generally completed within an hour. During this session, in addition to removing bacterial plaque, the patient is provided with a personalized prevention plan to avoid future buildup. Proper use of tools such as electric toothbrushes, interproximal brushes, and dental floss is essential to maintain good oral health between visits.

It is important to note the difference between dental cleaning and gum maintenance. Cleaning removes visible plaque on the tooth surface and up to two millimeters below the gum line. In cases where deeper plaque is detected, we recommend deeper cleaning procedures with anesthesia. Prior to this, we perform a periodontal charting to assess the extent of the plaque and ensure precise removal. Subsequently, a gum maintenance program is recommended to preserve periodontal health.

Is dental cleaning painful at BLASI Dental Clinic Barcelona?

Usually, it is not, but some patients may experience discomfort due to gum inflammation or dental sensitivity. For specific cases, such as gingival inflammation or sensitivity, we offer deeper treatments with anesthesia to ensure patient comfort during the procedure.

How is professional dental cleaning performed at BLASI Dental Clinic Barcelona?

The procedure consists of three stages:

1. Tartar Removal: We use advanced technology such as ultrasonic scaling and AIR FLOW to efficiently remove tartar. Subsequently, we use manual instruments to clean hard-to-reach areas.

2. Dental Polishing: Our hygienists use specialized brushes and polishing pastes to leave the teeth smooth and shiny.

3. Dental Fluoridation: We apply fluoride to strengthen dental enamel, especially important after tartar removal.

Aftercare for dental cleaning: It is normal to experience sensitivity after the procedure, but it will gradually disappear. We recommend following an appropriate oral hygiene routine and avoiding extremely hot or cold foods and beverages for a few days.

At BLASI Dental Clinic Barcelona, we are committed to providing comfortable and effective treatments to ensure the oral health of our patients. Schedule your appointment today and keep your smile radiant and healthy!
