Dental deep cleaning

Recommended Posts

I had to have half of my mouth deep cleaned today. I was googling (yeah I know) about some aftercare questions I forgot to ask my dentist and I seen that you are supposed to take antibiotics before you get a deep cleaning because of all the bacteria under your gums. Well my dentist hygenist never said anything about antibiotics. Now guess who’s scared she’s gonna get some kind of blood infection from the bacteria. 🙋‍♀️ Has anyone had this done without antibiotics?

You could call your dentist, tell them you googled deep cleaning and ask them about needing antibiotics.

Thank you so much. I literally just done this. Haha. She said they are not typically prescribed unless you have some type of prexisting condition which I don’t. (Unless you count anxiety.) 🤷‍♀️ She said no worries unless I show signs of infection.
