Re: What would you do?
Ok, I appreciate all the responses. For everyone who is mentioning getting a different dentist, silver fillings, etc I am on state insurance (Medicaid). It is so difficult to find a dentist. I am extremely fortunate to have a dentist who not only sees my whole family, but is actually a pretty decent clinic. They usually go above and beyond what most dentists in our network even do (fluoride treatments, deep cleanings, etc.) But they don't offer nitrous oxide at all, even to cash paying or private insurance patients. If I call around for a different pediatric dentist I am likely to A: not find one, B: get a crappy one, C: have a super long wait. So I feel like my only options here are to have them do silver fillings, pay for it out of pocket somewhere where they will do the tooth colored filling without an issue, or C: try to heal it naturally. I think I will try option C for right now since our appointment isn't until June. Thanks!
