      Not sure I can tell you how long they are going to hurt but you can ask your hygienist to not use water and stick to manual tools, it's meant to be gentler

        @KatieGB But if your plaques are really think I don't know if they would have to use water

      My gums hurt a little for about 3 days afterward but it’s not bad. It’s better to get them cleaned than to need a filling or route canal, which is more pain

        @Annie24 can I still eat completely normal?

          @Livingasazebra I could eat as usual! The only thing would be sudden changes in temperature for a day or two.
