    Should you get a baby tooth filled?

    I am vacillating between getting my four-year old daughter's incisor filled or not. I'm not sure I want to spend $200 on something that is going to fall out anyway. This tooth has never caused any pain either. Any advice?

    If the tooth is loose then I would not fill it.  However, if it isn't loose I would fill it.  You don't want the root to get infected.

    If the cavity continues and gets deep enough, it isn't the pain as much as the introduction of bacteria into the wound, root of the tooth and possibly the jawbone. It can actually be dangerous.  Maybe the dentist would pull it.  It would be the same amount of anesthetic.
