Many people steer clear of the dentist because of dental fear, anxiety or dental phobia. Aqua Dental Spa is Dental Phobia Certified and this means that we go the extra mile for nervous patients. Our aim is to make you feel comfortable and enable you to have regular dental appointments without any worry or fear. We have many years of experience in caring for patients with dental phobia and we have treated patients who haven’t seen a dentist for over 20 years.
We adopt a compassionate approach and we listen to our patients. We are here to help and our team is extremely friendly and approachable. We are happy to meet clients before they have treatment to show them around and enable them to meet the team and we also offer sedation to make patients feel more comfortable.
What is sedation?
Sedation is a method we use regularly to help patients feel more relaxed. One of the most common reasons people feel anxious when they have a dental appointment coming up is a fear of needles and injections. Often, people worry about needles because they have had painful injections in the past. Our expert dentists are gentle, caring and very highly trained and they will ensure that your injections are completely painless. They can also offer conscious sedation, which enables you to inhale sedative (laughing gas), rather than having an injection.
Sedation is not the same as general anaesthetic and many people get the two mixed up. With sedation, you remain conscious throughout and your body slips into a deep state of calm, similar to that of when you are sleeping. You can hear and speak but you won’t feel any pain and you probably won’t remember much after the procedure.
If you’re a nervous patient, we would like to help you. We know how important regular dental visits are and how crippling anxiety and fear can be. Call us now to book a consultation with one of our incredible dentists.
