Stress-Free Dental Care
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.
Thankfully, we’re able to work with you so that you can feel calm and relaxed throughout your entire visit in our Huntsville dentist office. Dr. Cook is happy to provide Nitrous Oxide Sedation during any and all procedures when necessary.
As needed, local anesthesia will also be used to numb specific teeth being worked on – such as during fillings or crown procedures.
Please be careful to review all medical information with us prior to your visit, to ensure that nitrous is appropriate for your specific needs.
Nitrous Oxide, a.k.a.“Laughing Gas”
More commonly known as “laughing gas”, the gentle mixture of oxygen and nitrous gas are inhaled through a soft nosepiece as you lie back and relax. In just a few minutes, you’ll feel calmed throughout your entire body and sometimes a bit tingly in your fingers and toes.
The level of nitrous oxide is easily adjusted throughout your procedure, and you are carefully monitored throughout the entire visit to ensure your safety at all times.
Your increased comfort will allow us to complete all of your necessary work in an efficient manner – whether it is a root canal, a filling, or even a cleaning!
After Your Visit
You’ll be glad to learn that the effects of nitrous gas quickly wear off. After just about 5 or 6 minutes on pure oxygen, you will be ready to drive yourself back home or to the office. There are no lingering effects! It’s even safe for children to help them complete any treatment that is needed.
When necessary, local anesthesia will also be used to numb specific teeth being worked on – such as during fillings or crown procedures.
Please be careful to review all medical information with us prior to your visit, to ensure that nitrous is appropriate for your specific needs. Call us for an appointment today at 256-539-4079.
