Nauseous/headache after every dental cleaning
What could be the cause and is it worth mentioning to my hygienist? Is there anything that could alleviate this reaction?
She uses a water pick and the appts are usually 30 min-45 min long.
This is unusual and I have not heard this before. I would mention it to your hygienist. Perhaps taking whatever you take for pain relief prior to your appointment would help.
