Dear Lybrate user, you may use any anti sensitivity toothpaste and gum astringent to get rid of sensitivity. Apply the toothpaste in all sensitive areas like an ointment, keep it for 5-6 minutes and then brush it off. Massage using gum astringent, let it stay for 6-7 minutes, spit gently and don't rinse, eat or drink anything for at least 30 minutes. If the sensitivity still persists, please consult your local dentist.

there is nothing to worry about tooth sensitivity after scaling. It takes one week to ten days for sensitivity to subside.
