My little girl has had the laughing gas and been put to sleep for dental work when she was 3 1/2 for the same reasons as your son. I recommend asking them if he could be put to sleep. I know it all depends on the child but my girl got aggressive while recovering from the gas and she did really great recovering from the anesthesia. And the doc said it was easier to work on her while she was asleep. If it is a pedi dentist they might have an agreement with an dr who does the anesthesia. Our pedi dentist does.

This isn't a criticism at all, but why all the decay? I would talk to your dentist or pediatrician about fluoride supplementation. My kids have had it for years and at 6 have never had a cavity. (And tooth brushing in my house is a once a day thing I let them do, and once a week I get in there and do it for them--so no annal hyper dental hygiene going on.) Im not bragging or condemning, just thought it could be prevented in the future.
