Edina Sedation Dentist

Let a Quality Edina Sedation Dentist Calm Your Dental Fears

The best news about sedation dentistry is that it's possible to catch up on years of neglect in just one or two appointments.

Because you're calmly sedated, Edina sedation dentist Dr. Cook is able to provide all of the care that you've been missing, restoring your oral health quickly and easily. Ask us about conscious sedation to help relieve the stress of some cosmetic dentistry procedures. We also provide dental implants, cosmetic dentistry and wisdom teeth.

Regular dental appointments are essential to your overall health. At Southdale Family Dentistry we know that those who avoid the dentist have an increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease, and that poor dental health can increase your risk of heart disease. Our patients can often get years' worth of dental treatments done in one or two stress-free sessions.

If you're looking for help in dealing with dental phobia, call us today at (952) 926-6081. Or fill out our online form for easy scheduling. We have several payment options and we're available when it's convenient for you.

New Patients Welcome

Mercury-free tooth-colored fillings

If you're looking for a more pleasing, silver-free smile, you'll want Edina area dentist Dr. Gerald Cook to replace your amalgam fillings with natural-looking composite fillings. Tooth-colored fillings are thought to be safer and more attractive than older silver amalgam fillings. Dr. Cook will precisely match your new tooth-colored composite fillings with the natural color of your teeth, providing you with virtually invisible fillings.

Bad Breath Can Be a Sign of Dental Problems

While bad breath might be a symptom of some other disorder, it most likely stems from dental decay and periodontitis. It's more than just socially awkward - it's a serious threat to your oral health. Periodontitis is a disease affecting gums and bone that support the teeth, and it is caused by inadequate brushing and flossing.

If you’re worried about bad breath, call us today at (952) 926-6081 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Cook. If he finds gum disease and/or dental decay, it can be treated readily. There's no need to live with bad breath, and no reason to neglect your dental health.

Do You Have Sensitive Teeth?

Millions of adults struggle with hypersensitive teeth, meaning they are sensitive to hot and cold temperatures, very sugary or acidic foods and drinks and vigorous tooth brushing. Above the gum line, dentin is protected with a coating of enamel. Unfortunately, as enamel is worn away or decayed, dentin becomes exposed and receptive to sensations that cause painful nerve responses.

This can also occur as the result of receding gums, a common symptom of gum disease. If your teeth are sensitive, please call Southdale Family Dentistry today at (952) 926-6081 to schedule a consultation.

Finding the Perfect Toothpaste

From whitening to ultra-sensitive, there are a multitude of toothpastes available on today's market. How do you choose? Start by selecting one with fluoride, which will prevent cavities. Other things to consider are flavor, whitening potential, tartar control and price. Often the biggest difference between two brands is packaging, so don't get hung up on the finer details. Consider selecting fun flavored toothpaste for children, as it will encourage them to brush regularly.

Very young children require a fluoride-free variety for safety. Call us at (952) 926-6081 and Dr. Gerald Cook will be happy to recommend a toothpaste that’s right for your family.
