Sedation Dentistry Q & A

What is sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry includes treatments that help you relax and avoid discomfort during dental appointments. Madison Dental Partners staff members offer different types of sedation and anesthetics to give you and your entire family the most pain-free, relaxing dental experience possible. 

What are the benefits of sedation dentistry?

Benefits you can experience with sedation dentistry at Madison Dental Partners include:

  • Less dental anxiety
  • Reduced stress during appointments
  • Relaxation 
  • No pain
  • Minimal to no downtime
  • Convenience
  • High satisfaction

Sedation dentistry is a good option for anyone with dental anxiety (fears about seeing a dentist), kids who have a hard time sitting still, and some special needs patients.

What are the different types of sedation dentistry?

The different types of dental sedation available at Madison Dental Partners include:

Nitrous oxide

Nitrous oxide is a gas you can breathe in through a mask that helps you relax during dental visits. You remain conscious during the appointment but can close your eyes, rest, or sleep if you’d like. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off quickly after your treatment, so you may be able to drive yourself home afterward. 

Local anesthetics

Local anesthesia includes numbing cream or tiny shots that numb the treatment area, so you can feel comfortable during dental procedures.


Premedication is a pill you take about an hour before your dental appointment to keep you relaxed during deep teeth cleanings or other dental treatments.

Is sedation dentistry right for me?

Ask your Madison Dental Partners provider if you’re a candidate for sedation dentistry. They let you know which anesthesia or sedation best meets your needs. You can benefit from sedation dentistry if you require:

  • Dental surgery
  • A root canal
  • A filling, crown, or bridge
  • Other dental restorations
  • Gum disease treatment

During sedation dentistry at Madison Dental Partners, you feel comfortable, pain-free, and relaxed. Sedation is optional in many cases, so you can choose what works best for you and your family.
