Baby or root canal?

If you had to have a baby no drugs or go to the dentist for a filling...with drugs, which would you choose? I will take the baby thank you! I am terrified of the Dentist. I go for cleanings, but if I need work done, I will put it off until I can't take it anymore lol

  • I've already had a baby with no drugs, but I've never had a cavity. The baby wasn't so bad, so I guess I'll go that route again. =)

  • I can't have a baby w/ no drugs so(Well, I don't know what they do if you can't have a vag birth, they need to give you somethin cuz they cut you open! )...I've had 2 root canal's (For reason, I take care of my teeth thank you very much!) They don't hurt as much as a baby. haha

  • I've had 3 babies without drugs so I'd have to go with that choice. I've never had a root canal but I've heard they are really painful... no thanks! Labor and delivery without drugs wasn't that bad and had a wonderful end result... holding that beautiful newborn (any pain was forgotten in that first moment of holding the baby).

  • I'd choose the dentist. I've only given birth to one baby and it was with drugs. So bring the drugs for the filling!

  • For me it is needles in my mouth. Poke them anywhere else in my body, but not my mouth...ouch. Thank God I am blessed with healthy teeth that are easy to take care of.

  • I've done both. I guess I'd pick the baby for the end result.

  • I will take the baby. It is not so hard to have a baby with out drugs. Then you get a wonderful package after.

  • I guess you would have totally freaked out if you were me yesterday! I choose baby over root canal only because I love babies and it's worth it in the end, but as far as the pain, I think I would rather have the root canal pain than childbirth pain. And I would prefer never ever ever again in my life to go through what I did over the last week. It's not teeth, but it involves a needle in the mouth. I had an abcessed tonsil which needed to be drained. Isn't that sick?
