what is oral-conscious sedation?
The dental industry has advanced leaps and bounds in a short period of time. However, fear of dental procedures still stops many patients from scheduling appointments for regular dental cleanings and exams. For this reason, board-certified dentist Dr. Mohit Shardha offers oral-conscious sedation to help patients feel more comfortable and relaxed during their treatments. He can prescribe anti-anxiety medications to be taken before your dental appointment, allowing you to be in a relaxed state of mind when you arrive while being conscious enough to follow instructions.

"He is hands down the best cosmetic dentist in the metroplex! I've been treating with him for 4 years and it's always a pleasure to go. I love the great results and no long waits plus he's soo sweet and caring! Thank you doctor for years of great dental health."- K.M. / Google / Apr 04, 2019
"Came highly recommended and I can now see why. He is the go-to cosmetic dentist for the high flyers in my firm and I am in awe of my smile after getting done. A big thank you to Dr Sharda and his staff for the exceptional work. I have been telling my friends and family to get their treatments done as I am sure for someone with his talent and expertise won't be in network with insurance companies for long. But I will still be going to him that's for sure. Cheers"- M.M. / Google / Dec 04, 2019
"The Doctor no doubt is a master at cosmetic dental work. Was referred by a friend who had veneers done by Dr Sharda and she looked at least 10 years younger after the treatment, its unbelievable how your smile can do that. I had several "cheap" crowns replaced and they came out stunning. It is a very high end practice with all the latest tech, I am moving to California for work but will be coming here for my dental work even if I have to fly in just for that. Too good!"- J.M. / Google / Jul 31, 2020
"Could not be happier with my smile, I get complements almost every day. It was the best investment of my life and I am loving it, I am so glad I got my cosmetic work done here and did not make the same mistake I made earlier when I went with the cheapest cosmetic dentist to get my veneers done which at the end looked fake and broke down within a few years. Thank you Dr. Sharda for stellar work and staff for putting up with my anxiety and schedule. I have been recommending you guys to all my family and co-workers."- J.P. / Google / Apr 04, 2019

candidates for oral-conscious sedation
Overall, oral-conscious sedation can help children and adults alike who have fears and anxiety about the dentist's office. Prior to being prescribed a medication for oral-conscious sedation, Dr. Shardha will need to complete a thorough evaluation of your health to decide whether or not you're a good candidate. He will review your medical history, current medications, and other factors to ensure that it's safe for you to take sedation medication and to determine which type will be best for you. Oral sedation might not be ideal if you have respiratory or heart complications, are pregnant, or have had an allergic reaction to benzodiazepines in the past.
What To Expect
There are several types of sedation medications that may be used. The medication chosen by Dr. Shardha will be influenced by you, your specific fears, your physical health, the procedure to be performed, and the approximate length of that procedure. Your medication will be prescribed during your consultation so you can have it filled before your procedure. Since you'll be taking the medication before you arrive, you should arrange for a reliable adult to drive you to our office and take you home after. With light oral-conscious sedation, you'll feel at ease but still be conscious and aware. With more significant sedation, you'll also be conscious, but your recollection will be a little fuzzy. You may fall into a light sleep during your procedure, but you should wake up easily.
