my 1 1/2 year old has the start of baby bottle tooth decay in his front 2 teeth and (along with cavities) and a cavity in his molar . we just went to the dentist today to see what to do. my son still goes to bed with a bottle refuses water has to have something sweet.. wakes up 2-3 times still… we have a hard time getting him to sleep period. to know he has a problem scares me and i feel so crappy. any how the pediatric dentist told us we only had two options of getting this fixed… to undergo dental surgery or to strap him down and give him novicane.. for one that scares me to give him a shot and then drill in his mouth while he's awake… and then to undergo surgery that scares me because thats a serious risk… I'm one confused mom.. any other options you guys know about about a cavity ? which would you choose?
