I'm getting a cleaning and x-rays done on Wednesday. I'm pretty nervous, and I'm just wondering how long a cleaning takes. I had one once, when I was little (maybe 10) and it was excruciating. I'm wondering if, in the past 11 or so years, methods have changed and this WON'T hurt?
As well as approximately how long it will take.
My teeth are not yellow, or stained much at all. They're actually quite white as I have always brushed 2-3 times per day, and limited my....sugar....and everything else intake.
Anyway. Very nervous here, wondering about the length and pain amount.
I know I have one cavity, whats the deal with that, they won't like hit it with a metal spike while cleaning, will they?
