The risk isn't in the work, it's in the anesthesia.
Check around. My dentist doesn't use drills or anesthesia ----- he uses new technology. No pain, no pain-killers, no soreness afterwards.
I took my sons in for fillings --- my 5 yr old needed 8! He watched a movie during the procedure & we went straight to lunch afterwards.
If you can find a dentist like that --- I can' think of any risks.
