Dental Phobia is not a problem with us
Many people suffer from fear and anxiety at the thought of going to the dentist, this can be so severe it can cause dental phobia in many patients. This may cause a negative impact on your dental health, especially if you haven't had your teeth checked in a number of years. If this is the case, we would like to reassure you that we have seen countless nervous patients come to our practice with this problem and we are here to help. The first step is making the decision that you want to try to overcome this fear. Here at Aqua Dental Clinic we work to make you feel as comfortable as possible and listen to your needs and worries, as well as to look after your dental health. We will answer any questions that you have, and discuss treatments with you so that you fully understand what will happen to make the dental experience less stressful.
We make you feel at home
We have a variety of therapies which can help you to relax such as listening to your favourite music, watching a film using our special virtual vision goggles, or even having relaxing aromatherapy.
Depending on your anxiety levels we may also recommend that you have sedation. This helps you to feel completely relaxed whilst conscious, so that you are able to have dental treatment without feeling any anxiety. We offer both oral and intravenous sedation and happy gas and can discuss the correct sedation method during your consultation. Dr Maini had over ten years' experience as a sedation dentist and has treated anxious patients from all over the country and further beyond, so you know you will be in extremely safe hands.

At Aqua Dental Clinic, we use the latest in dental technology to ensure your treatment is as pain free as possible, and now use The Wand Computer Assisted Anaesthetic System. The Wand is a state of the art device that allows for computerised injection of anaesthetics, which is far more comfortable than a traditional syringe and able to numb a single tooth without affecting the rest of your mouth, allowing you to leave the surgery without a “fat lip” or numb mouth. Some people get more nervous than others at the sign of a needle, but the Wand resembles a pen, is quick and virtually painless, allowing you to relax whilst being treated.
