Sedation Dentistry

Feeling nervous about your dental care can make you put it off longer than you should. The tooth that needs a filling today winds up needing a root canal a few months from now. Not only does the process take a bit longer, but it also becomes more expensive.

Your Comfort Is Our Priority

Thankfully, we’re able to work with you so that you can feel calm and relaxed throughout your entire visit in our Huntsville, AL dentist office. Dr. Cook is happy to provide nitrous oxide sedation during all procedures when necessary.

As needed, we will also administer local anesthesia to numb specific teeth we're working on, such as during fillings or crown procedures.

When necessary, we will use local anesthesia to numb specific teeth. This ensures that you won’t feel anything when we perform procedures like fillings or dental crowns.

Nitrous Oxide or “Laughing Gas”

More commonly known as “laughing gas,” you inhale the gentle mixture of oxygen and nitrous through a soft nosepiece while you lie back and relax. In just a few minutes, you’ll feel calm throughout your entire body and sometimes a bit tingly in your fingers and toes.

Your Huntsville sedation dentist can easily adjust the level of nitrous oxide as needed throughout your procedure. Rest assured that we will monitor you carefully throughout your entire visit to ensure your safety at all times.

Your increased comfort allows Dr. Cook to complete your treatment efficiently—whether it is a root canal, a filling, or even a dental cleaning!

No Lingering Side Effects

You’ll be glad to learn that the effects of nitrous gas quickly wear off. After just about five or six minutes breathing pure oxygen, you will feel refreshed and ready to drive yourself back home or to the office. There are no lingering effects, and it’s even safe for children as needed to help them complete their treatment.
