daughter has a cavity..

i noticed recently that my daughter has a cavity between her two front teeth in the back of them, i'm going to make an appointment for her to be seen asap.. but i'm nervous, will they shoot her up with anesthetic, drill her, etc. when she is so close to losing her teeth already? she's 5 1/2, i'm really curious to know what they'd do. if pulling the teeth was an option, i think i'd take it.

  • My pediatric dentist just told me last month that if it is in a baby tooth and they are over 5 he will NOT fill it. If it is really bad, or causing pain he will pull them.
