I wouldn't bother trying to clean out the PCI Express Slot itself. To clean out a PCI Express slot I use alcohol and a folded piece of coffee filter which I repeatedly insert and remove like a video card. Then I blow it out with compressed air and let the board dry. That is almost never the problem. Usually it is the card, not the slot.
Oh sorry, I misunderstood. However, the teeth look clean to me, nothing dirty or even slightly dusty on there.

You won't necessarily see it. Sometimes the varnish used on the teeth corrodes. You only see the green gunk when you brasso it off.

It won't hurt to simply rub the teeth off with rubbing alcohol and a rag and let it dry.
