Most procedures like regular check-ups are entirely painless – there is nothing to worry about! However, if you do have a lot of built-up plaque or calculus (also known as tartar), this will need to be removed.
If you have sensitive teeth or gums, this might be a little uncomfortable, but remember this: the better you care for your teeth (and the more often you come in for a proper clean), the less uncomfortable it’ll be each time!
We try to keep things as un-invasive as possible, i.e. we won’t get in there with drills or tools unless absolutely necessary. If this is the case, we will do everything we can to relieve the pain and keep you relaxed and sedated.
