We understand that when it comes to oral surgeries and dentistry, many people experience anxiety over even the simplest of procedures. And we understand the importance of patient comfort and want you to feel confident when you come in for your treatments and surgery. This is why we offer advanced dental anesthesia options. Anesthesia is used to calm nerves, reduce fear or anxiety and block sensations of discomfort during treatments. As a board-certified oral surgeon, Dr. Howard Cooke offers the most effective forms of dental anesthesia in-office as well as in hospital settings, including IV sedation and general anesthesia in Dallas, TX. Our patients find that these anesthesia options help them achieve their healthiest smile no matter their preconceived notions they had before treatment. Dental anesthesia can help you in many ways, including:
Dr. Cooke is medically trained and certified to offer both general anesthesia and IV sedation, two of the most advanced forms of anesthesia. Both options will put you into a soothing, dream-like state. In fact, many patients feel as if they fall asleep and wake up to a completely new smile. Since you are so relaxed, these options allow us to perform much more thorough care, often able to treat multiple areas of the mouth and complete entire procedures in just one appointment. And while under the effects of anesthesia, you will be closely monitored for safety.
Our practice is located adjacent to a hospital and multiple surgical centers, so this gives us easy access to outpatient care and inpatient hospital treatments. Often for cases of facial trauma, we will meet the patient at the hospital, but for those seeking outpatient services like All-on-4® dental implants or wisdom teeth extraction, we can see you in our own office. We pride ourselves as being a center for excellence when it comes to dental care and oral surgery so you will have nothing to fear!
