Experience Stress-Free Dentistry With Oral Sedation Dentistry

Do dental visits fill you with anxiety? At DFW Implant Center, we invite you to take advantage of oral sedation dentistry, where relaxation and comfort are the guiding principles. Arlington, TX dentist Dr. Farhad Boltchi and his skilled team offer oral sedation to help you relax during your dental experience. Keep reading to learn more about the many transformative benefits of oral sedation dentistry.

What is Oral Sedation Dentistry?

Oral sedation dentistry involves the use of oral medication to induce a deep state of relaxation during dental procedures. Unlike intravenous (IV) sedation, which requires an injection, and nitrous oxide (commonly known as “laughing gas”), which is inhaled, oral sedation offers a convenient and comfortable option. With oral sedation, you take a prescribed medication before your appointment, allowing anxiety and fear to melt away and enabling you to undergo dental procedures with ease.

Benefits of Oral Sedation Dentistry

Oral sedation helps to alleviate dental anxiety and fear, allowing patients to feel calm and relaxed throughout their dental visit.

By inducing a state of relaxation, oral sedation enhances patient comfort during dental procedures, making the experience more pleasant.

 Oral sedation allows for more efficient dental treatment by minimizing potential patient discomfort or anxiety-related delays.

With oral sedation, patients can often undergo multiple treatments in a single appointment, saving time and minimizing the need for multiple visits.

Oral sedation dentistry is a comfortable and pain-free sedation method. It doesn’t require needles or masks, items that certain patients may find scary or uncomfortable. 

Preparing for Oral Sedation Dentistry


Before you’re approved for any procedure involving oral sedation dentistry, you’ll have an initial consultation with Dr. Boltchi. He’ll discuss your dental needs and determine if oral sedation is suitable for you. He’ll also review your complete medical history, including any medications or supplements you are currently taking, to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the sedation.

Prescription and Instructions

Dr. Boltchi will prescribe an appropriate oral sedative and provide detailed instructions on when and how to take it before your appointment.

Fasting Instructions

Follow any fasting instructions provided by your dentist to ensure the medication is properly absorbed and to minimize potential side effects. Failure to follow fasting instructions can lead to vomiting and make your procedure less safe. 

Remove Contact Lenses, Jewelry, And Nail Polish

Before your appointment, remove any contact lenses, jewelry, and nail polish. These items can interfere with the sedation process by obscuring signs of possible issues or hurting you while you’re in treatment and may need to be removed for your safety during the procedure.

Plan For Recovery Time

After the procedure, the effects of oral sedation may take some time to wear off completely. Plan for adequate relaxation at home following the appointment. Engage in light activities and avoid strenuous tasks for the remainder of the day.

The Oral Sedation Dentistry Process

  1. Relaxation Takes Effect: As the oral sedative takes effect, you’ll enter a state of deep relaxation while remaining conscious and able to respond to the dentist’s instructions.
  2. Pain-Free Experience: Dr. Boltchi will proceed with the necessary dental treatments, ensuring your comfort and minimizing any discomfort.
  3. Monitoring And Comfort: Throughout the procedure, our highly trained dental professionals will closely monitor your vital signs to ensure your safety and comfort. 
  4. Dental Treatment: Once you’re comfortably sedated, our Arlington dentist will begin the necessary dental procedures. Whether you require a routine dental cleaning or a more complex treatment, you can rest assured that you’ll receive high-quality care while being completely at ease.
  5. Recovery and Follow-up: After the procedure, you may require some time to recover from the sedative effects. A responsible adult should accompany you home, and Dr. Boltchi will provide necessary post-operative instructions.
