At Apricot Dental, we pride ourselves on providing you with the level of care we would expect for our own family. That includes offering sedation and doing everything possible to ensure that you are comfortable during your appointment.
Many of our patients find that our gentle, personalized approach to dental care is enough to help them relax and know they are in good hands. But many others appreciate the calming effects of sedation dentistry at our Rockwall, TX dental office.
Dr. Randhawa is certified to provide sedation with nitrous oxide as well as oral conscious sedation. Either method helps you relax, but they offer different levels of comfort.
Nitrous oxide is a form of conscious sedation that’s mild enough to use for children. You inhale nitrous through a small nasal mask, and as you do, you will start to feel very calm and relaxed. You’ll experience a deep sense of wellbeing, but you will remain conscious and able to communicate with your team. Nitrous leaves the system quickly so that you can drive yourself home from your appointment.
Oral conscious sedation involves taking a prescription medication about an hour before your appointment. You’ll arrive feeling very relaxed and drowsy, and many patients fall asleep during their procedure.
If you think that you would benefit from sedation dentistry, please call us or let us know before your next procedure. Your comfort and wellbeing is our priority!
