Nitrous and IV
This is known as laughing gas and is offered in our office as a mild form of sedation that is helpful during treatment. It does not cause your child to sleep; it relaxes apprehensive patients so they may get through the treatment in a more positive manner.
If your child is scheduled to have dental treatment performed under general anesthesia, you might be wondering how this will play out. A good number of parents considering this option are anxious about the possible outcomes, especially the news or TV reports stories that discuss the potential complications of general anesthesia.
Little Fish Dental contracts with a very specialized doctor – a dental anesthesiologist – that brings his equipment to our office. What this means is that any child using this method is sedated by a medical professional specifically trained to administer general anesthesia for dentistry. Dr. Trout accomplishes the dental work while the dental anesthesiologist focuses on the sedation. All of the focus in the room is on your child during this procedure by both doctors.
If your child is scheduled to undergo dental treatment under general anesthesia, and you have concerns, please do not hesitate to give our office a call so that we can answer your questions – call (916) 435-9799.
