IV Sedation Dentistry in Rocklin, CA
If your child is unable to get the necessary dental work done while awake, our office offers IV Sedation dentistry. We bring in a dental anesthesiologist that puts your child to sleep using IV sedation so that our dentists can complete the work your child needs. We have many children that receive this type of treatment and the reasons for someone needing this service can vary. Sometimes the patient is very young and cannot sit still or does not understand what is happening, sometimes older children simply are not able to go through the required procedure for having a cavity fixed, perhaps due to special needs or being highly sensitive. Whatever your child’s reason may be, our goal is to quickly resolve the problems they are having with their mouth or teeth to prevent further problems and allow for any needed healing.
A Range of Sedation Dentistry and Pain-Free Solutions
As mentioned, we offer IV sedation to help make your child’s experience at Little Fish Dental a positive one, but we also offer low-level laser therapy (LLLT), which can reduce the use of anesthesia for children or reduce the discomfort of injections.
Many parents who want to take a pro-active stance in creating positive dental experiences for their children ask us about LLLT when they schedule appointments for procedures ranging from dental fillings to orthodontic treatment in Rocklin – and many treatments in between.
Remember, too, that if as a parent, you are exhibiting dental anxiety in front of your child that this can transfer to their takeaway from their appointment. Feel free to ask us about steps you can take as an active at-home measure to ensure that your child grows up with only positive memories of their dental experiences.
