Our team at Midway Dental Solutions understands that many people feel anxious or nervous when visiting the dentist, so we are pleased to offer sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry is ideal for patients who are nervous for their appointment, want extra pain management or who have difficulty receiving dental care. Our sedation dentistry services include:

IV Sedation

IV sedation consists of Dr. Rashid Beirute-Prada inserting a small needle to provide medication directly into your bloodstream. Before your IV sedation appointment, our dentists will hold a consultation appointment with you so that we can determine if IV sedation is the best option for you. To make your consultation appointment, and to learn more about dental IV sedation in Rockwall, Texas, call Midway Dental Solutions at 972-412-0014 today!

IV (intravenous) sedation is a conscious sedation treatment, meaning that you will be aware of where you are and what is happening, and able to follow any instructions provided by our dentist. Prior to providing you with IV sedation, you will meet with our dentist one-on-one to discuss your medical history, dental needs, and any other relevant factors and determine if IV sedation is the best option for you.

IV sedation provides medication directly into your bloodstream to help you relax quickly and feel comfortable during your appointment. This type of sedation is very safe, but we will monitor you closely throughout your entire treatment to ensure that there are no complications. Patients often feel as though they have slept through their treatment following their procedure and do not recall many of the details of their visit.

You will need to bring someone with you to drive you home from our office. We also recommend that someone remain with you for several hours after you have arrived home, until the medication has worn off.

We invite you to contact our office today for more information about IV sedation and to schedule your consultation with our caring dentist. We look forward to providing you with a comfortable dental visit.

Nitrous Oxide

If you feel anxious about your appointment with our dentists at Midway Dental Solutions, nitrous oxide may be right for you. Nitrous oxide will help you feel relaxed during your appointment, but you will stay conscious so you can communicate with Dr. Rashid Beirute-Prada or Dr. Brad Salter. To learn more about nitrous oxide in Rockwall, Texas, call our office at 972-412-0014 today!

Do you ever feel nervous about visiting the dentist? Does your upcoming treatment make you feel anxious? If so, you may benefit from nitrous oxide sedation at our office. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is a gas that you inhale through a nose mask during your treatment. As you breathe in the nitrous oxide, which is mixed with oxygen, you will experience a relaxed, euphoric sensation. Nitrous oxide can help you feel calm and at ease throughout your treatment. Nitrous oxide sedation is very safe; the effects will wear off within just a few minutes after we remove your nose mask, and you can legally and safely drive yourself home after your appointment.

Nitrous oxide is a good option for any of our patients who suffer from dental anxiety or dental phobia. If you feel anxious because you are receiving a treatment you have not experienced before, or if you simply dislike the sounds and sights of the dental office, we may recommend nitrous oxide to help you feel more relaxed. Be certain to discuss your concerns with our dentist and dental team before your visit so we can help you feel more comfortable during your treatment. We invite you to contact us today to learn more!

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is a simple and safe type of sedation dentistry. Oral sedation consists of Dr. Rashid Beirute-Prada giving you detailed instructions and a pill to swallow before your appointment. To learn more about dental oral sedation in Rockwall, Texas, or to make your appointment with our dentists at Midway Dental Solutions today, call our office at 972-412-0014!

Oral sedation is a form of conscious sedation we may recommend to ensure you have a comfortable experience each time you visit our office. Administered in pill form, oral sedation is simple and easy to use. Because oral sedation is a form of conscious sedation, you will remain awake during the treatment, but you will feel more relaxed and at ease. There are many benefits to sedation dentistry, including:

  • With oral sedation, you simply need to take a pill. It is quick and easy to use.
  • There are no needles involved.
  • It produces the necessary amnesic effect for a comfortable experience.
  • Oral sedation typically costs less than other forms of sedation.

If you and our dentist determine that oral sedation is right for you, you will be prescribed a pill that will help you relax. You will be instructed to take the pill before your scheduled appointment; be certain to follow the specific instructions included with your pill. It is important that you have a family member or a friend drive you to and from your appointment to provide maximum safety to yourself and others. When you arrive at our office, you will be awake but extremely relaxed. You may feel drowsy, and it is not unusual for you to not remember all of the details of your appointment.

For more information about the benefits of oral sedation and how we can make your visit more comfortable, please call our office today.

Sedation dentistry is a wonderful choice for patients who feel anxious or nervous about their dental treatment. Sedation dentistry involves using a sedative medication to help you feel more relaxed and calm during your dental visit. There are several types of sedation dentistry available based on your individual needs and preferences:


  • Nitrous oxide, (laughing gas), which is a sedative gas that is mixed with oxygen. You simply inhale the gas during your treatment to help you feel more relaxed. Nitrous oxide is a mild form of sedation that wears off within just a few minutes after we stop the flow of gas.
  • Oral sedation, which involves taking an oral medication before your treatment. By the time of your appointment, you will feel calm and at ease.
  • IV sedation, which involves administering the medication intravenously (through the veins). This type of sedation enables our dentist to provide the sedation more quickly, and we can also easily control the level of sedation to ensure that you stay comfortable. IV sedation is a form of conscious sedation, meaning that it will not make you unconscious, but you may feel so relaxed that you fall asleep during your treatment. You may also not remember all of the details of your visit.

Sedation dentistry will help you feel more comfortable during your treatment. Our experienced dentist and dental team will ensure that your entire treatment is safe. Each member of our team is highly trained, and we will carefully monitor you during your visit. If you have chosen oral or IV sedation, please be sure to have a friend or family member available to drive you to and from your appointment.

If you suffer from dental anxiety, if you have had negative experiences at the dentist in the past, or if you simply feel nervous about your treatment, sedation dentistry can help you feel more at ease. Sedation dentistry is also a good choice for patients who have difficulty getting numb or who have an extremely sensitive gag reflex.
