I hope I'm not hijacking this thread but rather contributing to the conversation!
My dd had two cavities. One was quite large and the dentist wasn't sure if he could fill it. He numbed it, drilled and filled no issues. Second cavity was small and he said he could do it without numbing. Towards the end of drilling she said ow a couple of times. So never again will I allow them to not numb her.

OP, you know your child. Mine is quite easygoing with that kind of stuff. She got two cavities filled no gas, no anesthesia, no holding her down, no papoose. Just novicaine, drill and fill. She hardly flinched.
