Most of our sedation options provide conscious sedation, which means that your child will be awake and cooperative for treatment but will feel far calmer about the procedure than they might otherwise. However, for certain procedures, whether it be because the procedure is more intensive or because your child has a high amount of anxiety or difficulty with treatment, our pediatric dentist, Dr. Jeff Flannery, can provide general anesthesia during treatment. If you are looking for general anesthesia in Birmingham, Alabama, please call Oak Mountain Pediatric Dentistry at 205-980-1338 today for more information.
