To Provide Painless Treatments
As providers of the highest standard of professional dental care, we strive to treat you without you feeling any pain during the procedure. In order to accomplish painless treatment, our dentists pay attention to your individual needs and will accordingly anesthetise you. With the help of conscious sedation, we are able to ease anxiety and stress.
Anaesthesia means the absence of sensation. Local anaesthesia means blocking the nerve, so the patient cannot feel pain in that area. Local anaesthesia, strictly speaking, means putting local anaesthetic ("freezing") around the affected area to make it pain free.
