Re: Teeth Cleaning Trauma
There's really no scraping involved with this cleaning -- it's more like a sonic cleaning with an instrument that sprays. (She calls it a Prophy (sp?) cleaning. Hard to describe, but my dentist says the regular scraping cleaning is too hard on anyone's enamel. So -- you may have it with the nerve answer. Maybe it was a nerve reaction that made the top of my head sensitive. Who knows? But, no, my gums are healthy and I never get coldsores -- however, think I will go back to the old cleaning with a hygienist. My dentist does the cleanings herself and I thought this was better -- but now, I don't think so after this ordeal. Thanks for your response.
