Re: My 4 1/2 yr old had to get cavities filled.
I'm glad it went well. Alannah (my three year old) just had her first cavity filled a few weeks ago and it was a really deep one. Our dentist doesn't offer nitrous so we just went with novicaine. She was such a trouper. She didn't cry, she didn't fuss, a couple of times she scrunched up her little face and said "ow" but really she did fine. Then afterwards she said, "mommy, I had fun at the dentist today!" Such a trooper.
You know, I think it's all in how we as parents handle it. If we get all nervous about the dentist, then the kiddos worry. Michelle, you and I must be awesome at handling the dentist! LOL
