What We Offer

Sedation Dentistry

Caring Hennepin County Sedation Dentistry Can Calm Your Dental Fears

One of the consequences of common dental phobia is poor dental and overall health. Dr. Gerald Cook sees patients with dental anxiety nearly every day and he can offer you a range of comfortable and relaxing options!

Visiting us at Southdale Family Dentistry on a regular basis significantly decreases your risk of gum disease and tooth decay, which further decreases your risk of other complications, including heart disease. 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.

People whose dental anxieties have kept them out of the dentist's chair for too long will be happy to know that we can often correct years of dental problems in just one or two visits with sedation dentistry. Stress-free dentistry at Southdale Family Dentistry can give you back your dental health! With modern sedation dentistry options, both routine and extensive dental treatment can be comfortable and relaxing.

About Us

Memberships: Dr. Gerald Cook

Teeth Grinding or Bruxism Can Be Treated

There are a number of things you can do if you feel either you or somebody you love is suffering from nighttime teeth grinding or bruxism. For starters, try to alleviate whatever stress in your life you can. Kick the tobacco habit and heavy drinking, and try not to drink too much coffee.

Severe cases may need to be fitted with a mouth guard or have their teeth reshaped to eliminate unusual alignment. If you feel you may be suffering from bruxism, call Southdale Family Dentistry at (952) 926-6081 to schedule a consultation.

Take Advantage of Your Dental Insurance

If you and your family have dental insurance, you should take a couple of minutes to see what it offers. Many plans have a 'use it or lose it' provision that provides a certain level of care per calendar year.

Take advantage of it and save a lot of money in the long run by avoiding costly procedures that result from poor dental habits. Our friendly staff at Southdale Family Dentistry will be happy to answer all your dental insurance questions. Just give us a call at (952) 926-6081.

Bruxism: Not the Usual Grind

Sure, it's annoying when friends, spouses or children grind their teeth at night, but the effects could be much more serious than the loss of a good night's sleep on your part. This sleep disorder, called bruxism, can lead to a number of ailments, including loose or lost teeth. Even lighter grinding can wear down tooth enamel.

If you or someone in your family is grinding their teeth at night, call us at (952) 926-6081 to schedule an appointment with FistName Cook, D.D.S..
