In a lot of cases with little ones they probably have to because it would be a hard thing to deal with a wiggling child and doing what they have to for his dental work. My daughter at the age of 7 had to have her front teeth pulled out. They did not come out of their own accord and had not even loosened. The dentist we went to for it just did the procedure as if she were an adult. She screamed and cried and the whole thing as tramatic for her. After that she was scared of needles. I was with her in the back but I had my hands full of a baby too and could not get them to stop. If she had sedation done, it might have been easier to get through. Thus it caused her to be fearful of needles to this day. Not so much now since she has had two kids within two years of each other. So I hope to put your mind at ease that sedation can make it less tramatic for the child and easier for the dentist and his team to do their job. Its scary to be 'put under' as they call it but what is better--screaming upset child or an easier experience?
