1. Is it true that teeth become sensitive after cleaning ?
It could be possible that if a person gets his teeth cleaned after a long gap the gums which are pushed down by the accumulated tartar take time to reattach and the teeth may feel sensitive for that period.

2. Is it true that frequent cleaning of teeth causes the teeth to become loose?
No on the contrary if you dont get a professional cleaning done for long then the tartar causes the gums to recede and the bone support goes along with it causing teeth to shake.
