How we can help you at Aqua Dental Clinic
Our expert team of friendly dental professionals is led by Dr Anoop Maini, a dental phobia certified dentist with many years of experience in treating anxious patients and those who suffer from dental phobia. We aim to make every patient’s experience relaxing and comfortable and we offer treatment under sedation for those who are anxious about having dental procedures.
Sedation is a technique, which is used in both dentistry and medicine to help patients feel more relaxed and eliminate pain. When you’re sedated, you will feel drowsy and tired, you won’t experience any pain and you won’t have much recollection of what happened during the procedure when you come round afterwards. Sedatives induce a state of deep calm and they can really help to reduce anxiety and put you at ease.
When you’re sedated, you won’t lose consciousness and you will be awake, but you’ll feel relaxed. It can take some time for the full effects to wear off, so we advise you to avoid driving, making important decisions, drinking alcohol and exercising for 24 hours after treatment.
If you are an anxious patient, we are here to help. Our friendly, caring team has experience in looking after nervous patients and we promise you that you’ll be in the best possible hands.
