My son is terrified of the dentist. I took him in the other day for a toothache and it was a headache trying to get him to do anything without freaking out. Of course all they did was look at it then we had to make an appt for a filling. Now his tooth is hurting worse, and the thing is we have public aid, so the wait for a pediatric dentist is over a month. Im going to call a regular dentist tomorrow to see if we can get him in sooner, and now hes freaking out even worse. Ugh I feel like I will have to put him in a straight jacket just to get a filling. Idk maybe im just letting off some steam, but anyone who has ever been in this situation and could give me some pointers will be a huge help! My son is 6 btw.Answer Question

Yes I had to take my kids to a pediatric dentist because my DD was so scared. They had to sedate her slightly with gas just to look in her mouth.
