I took my 22mo.old daughter for her first dental visist yesterday b/c I suspected cavaties. I was right she has 6. I was referred to a hospital in Richmond,VA where they want to put her to sleep intravenously in order to cap & crown the 6 teeth. I spoke to a dental assistant yesterday who's son had same thing done,but it did n ot ease my worries of having someone inject her with something to put her to sleep. My fears are great "what if they give her too much"? "what if something goes wrong"? I am waiting to hear back from her pediatrician b/c he has known her since birth, and would just like his opinion health wise. I was told this would be done in order to prevent toothaches in the future. Anyone with advice or comfort please help!!!!
