Hi ladies, I have a concern and need advice.
My daughter has an appointment today to the dentist, she has a cavity that couldn't be fixed at her regular dentist, because she wouldn't cooperate. Now I have to bring her to a pediatric dentist who will sedate her.
Has anyone done this before to their children?
How safe is it?
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
UPDATE: Well I took her and she behaved like a big girl, the dentist decided not to sedate her and started working on her, he did the little numbing lotion and then a needle, she complaint a little but nothing much... then when she heard the drill she freaked out, her body was stiff (i was holding her leg so she could know I was right next to her) and she started crying, she couldnt do much because they placed something in her mouth so she wouldnt close it, I saw the whole thing and was traumatized :/ the dentist was done in about 25 min. he put a cap on her baby molar. once done she got up and hugged me while crying for a while.... then the dentist turns to me and says : "She is a good candidate for sedation because she gets very nervous" I almost smacked him >;/ now you say that?! I dont know how to feel because on one hand he did not put more meds in her and it was a quick fix, but on the other hand she is traumatized and saying she wont go to the dentist again.
