Dental Hygiene

Feeling sick after cleaning



I had a cleaning today - I have a great dela of recession and there was bleeding - I received a flouride treatment as well as a sealent for sensitivity - right afterwards I had a blinding headache that keeps getting worse nad now i have flulike symptoms. Is there somethign I should be concerned aobut? I never get headaches and was 100% fine before the cleaning


It really sounds like a coincidence. Everything you say that was done was routine. I would monitor this each time you have a cleaning though.
