@Aditi Banga I’m sorry to hear that you had a rough time with that gum procedure!

I’ve had a few deep cleanings and they’re nothing to worry about! They’ll probably numb you up but that’s the worst part and it lasts just a second. I didn’t know they were even different from regular cleanings when I first started getting them. I guess the numbing should have been my clue 😉 You’ll do great! When is your cleaning?

After 3 weeks I wish my experience goes better this timee.

@Aditi Banga I just had a deep clean first time in my life. I was worried that it would be painful. But the dentist numbs your gum. You barely feel anything. And to get honest, it happened so fast and you can really feel the difference after cleaning.

Hi @Aditi Banga, have you had a look around our website yet? There are lots of tips, for example, here:


You may also like the sections on common fears and on what can help with overcoming dental fears:



Are you seeing a different dentist now, or the one you had the traumatic experience with? If it's the latter, you might want to change to someone else who has been recommended to you?
