Does the word “dentist” give you goose bumps and make you immediately want to call your mom? These are the top five treatments that make you scared but really shouldn’t, especially when your dentist is Dr. Alpa Dalal

Gum Treatments

Gum treatments take care of our gums, the most overlooked part of our mouth. Gum treatments are great to avoid gum disease. If you overlook it, by the time you develop that, there might not be an easy way back. It might be scary to hear the word scaling or root planning, but gum treatments are actually not complex treatments. Deep cleaning in gum treatments is actually painless and lasts for a long time. There is no need to be scared of gum treatments.

Dental Fillings

Dental fillings might sound like someone is going to inject some weird kind of cement in your teeth. Modern dental fillings are not at all that way. The new dental fillings are made in layers and shaped afterward to fit the tooth perfectly. Dental fillings are now painless, white and everlasting; you won’t have any problems with dental fillings for a long time.

Emergency dental care

An emergency dental care need means that there is something really wrong with your mouth that can’t wait to the next appointment. Why being scared about going to see a dentist when you are in pain? Emergency dental care has improved a lot in the last years and you will immediately get a painkiller before anything else. Next step in emergency dental care is usually a quick fix on the problem and finally antibiotics. Emergency dental care is anything but scary, they will treat you with patience and give you everything they can to kill the pain. Go to emergency dental care before it gets any worse.

Dental Crowns

If there is a scary treatment for people, that is to have a dental crown installed. It is actually a false fear because technology has moved forward so much that now replacements are exact replicas of what you need and the materials are great for blending in with your real teeth. There is no need to be afraid; you can complete a dental crown in only two visits.


Losing a tooth partially or completely can ruin your smile. Dentures are nothing to be scared of, especially right now since replicas are exact and the materials for attachment are everlasting. Fear, not having a perfect smile, but don’t fear dentures.
