What to expect when you go for a procedure to clean your teeth

In some cases, it’s not necessary to have the procedure performed.

In those cases, a dentist will probably do a thorough dental exam and prescribe a medication.

You may want to talk to your dentist before the procedure.

It is important to talk with your dentist if you have any of these symptoms: feeling very tired after the procedure, having a fever or a sore throat, having difficulty swallowing, or if you’re feeling upset, or feel you are hurting.
