Brief Answer:
tooth cleaning doesn't cause vertigo

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for writing in.

Vertigo is not a side effect of tooth cleaning.

Vertigo can be due to many other reasons like :
low or high blood pressure.
Weakness from an infection

I would suggest you to take rest and get your blood pressure checked.

Take care.
