Pediatric Sedation Dentistry in Mobile, AL

We will always choose the most conservative treatment options available to your child, and we seek to use non-invasive procedures whenever possible. However, there are times when your child may need to be sedated to care for them properly. Ultimately, their safety and comfort are our utmost concern. 

Types of Sedation Dentistry

Nitrous Oxide

Laughing gas is the common term for Nitrous Oxide, a safe and mild method used during dental procedures. Your child will be awake and responsive throughout the procedure, in a more relaxed state.

Because this type of dentistry is short-lived with a gentle effect, it is often used for children. Nitrous oxide puts patients at ease to remain relaxed during dental procedures allowing the anxious child a more pleasant dental experience! We customize each case individually and will discuss sedation only if necessary.

Intravenous "IV" Sedation

Many children suffer from dental anxiety, feeling extreme fear that keeps them from attending dental visits.  We want all patients to receive excellent dental care despite their dental anxiety. To this end, we offer in-house IV sedation dentistry from an anesthesiologist to ensure the comfort of our patients.

We work with Pediatric Dental Anesthesia Associates. PDAA is a leading team of pediatric anesthesia doctors who partner with us to provide the safest, most expert care possible. If your child fears going to the dentist, call us today to learn more about intravenous “IV” sedation.
