IV Sedation for Children at the Dentist

We have highly skilled Anesthesiologist, Specializing in IV Sedation for Kids & Teens

At Gold River Pediatric Dentistry, we have two qualified and licensed anesthesiologists who work with Dr. Pivnik to provide pain-free oral health care and treatments to infants, children, and teens, including those with special healthcare needs, to ensure that they have a positive experience and receive the quality of care they deserve. 

Why General Anesthesia for your child? 

The greatest advantage of putting a child to sleep while getting their dental work done is that they will not have any memory of a traumatic experience.

Dr. Pivnik is qualified to recognize the indications for the need for deep sedation, and to render such care with the assistance of our anesthesiologists.

Check for signs of poor oral hygiene, such as bad breath, visibly unclean teeth, and bleeding gums and other signs of gum disease, and remind them of the importance of proper oral hygiene – to prevent tooth decay and subsequent tooth loss, to avoid bad breath, to maintain an attractive smile, etc.
