The cleaning was forceful...not really painful, but probably one of the deepest cleanings I've had in my life. The laser is really nothing. The smell is kind of gross, but it's a piece of cake. I was definitely sore for a few days after the fact and my teeth were mildly painful for a few weeks after the fact.
