Should I have my son sedated to get his baby teeth filled? He is eight years old.
My son is eight and has about 3-4 cavities, my mom says I should just wait until they fall out because they are just baby teeth.She thinks he is too young to get work done on his teeth. Should I get them filled? He hates the dentist and won''t let them open his mouth, I am nervous about them putting him to sleep. I just read an article about children dying during these operations. Has anyone had their children sedated and teeth filled? What were the results? Aren't they just going to fall out anyway?
They should just fall out on their own. Don't give a child that kind of horror from a dentist. My mother made that mistake years ago.
Do you mind sharing what happened? They say if I leave his teeth in it will effect his adult teeth. They wanted to do twilight sedation or laughing gas.
Thanks for responding to my question.
Both me and my sister had bad experiences with doctors. My sister had her baby teeth removed, that gave room for her new teeth to come in but now she is so afraid of the dentist that she refuses to take care of her teeth. Now her they are worse.
