We took out DD to a bigger town with a place that specialized in sedating children. If your DD is 6, I'm sure she will be just fine. They only worry about the littles.

She is 4.
She has 6 cavities.
But I am taking her to a larger city w more specialists. Hoping no sedation, but if we need it....
I have had this phone hot getting it all figured.
Found a practice (well they have 4 locations) w an anesthesiologist and 2 RNs on staff, and their own OR, and it is next to a large childrens hospital.

I am crazy! I know.
But today scared me to death.

Re: Breastfeeding and cavities

I wanted my son out completely. I did not want him having to have a needle in various places in his mouth while awake as I know it would have tramatized him. Even on Versed he would still thrash and need to be held down. That would ruin him from wanting to go back to the dentist forever. He has PDD NOS.

We did general anastesia with no issues for 7 cavities. He was in and out in under 45 min and was able to eat and drink right away. No numbing meds, so no issues there. It was a wonderful experience. My son even asks to go back to the dentist. I am glad we did it this way. My son is 5 and this was his 3rd oral surgery.

Me too. Wanted my DD out out out. She's not even 2 though. There's no way she would have sat still.

Honestly better have them out than traumatized.
The first dentist we went to tried to pappose her and it didn't go well.
She would panic for the longest time after.

I wouldnt be okay w her freaking out. I was hoping she would just let them.
Last time she was put out for something simple we wound up in the hospital.
She just didnt wake up well.
But at that time she had severe asthma.
Her asthma has been controlled for 2 yrs now.
BUT if we are having sedation- its gonna be clinical/medical. Doctors nurses, etc. Not a dentist and an assistant that doesnt "really know milliliters." But somewhere if something goes amiss, they have a plan and resources.
Yall I am crazy.

I talked to a hygenist who has been in this town for 20 yrs working and she sung his praises.

Re: Breastfeeding and cavities

If you think she will just let them do it under sedation then go for it. My son would not have sat there with his mouth open allowing them to come at him with a needle or two for all his cavities. He would have had to be held down which I am against for my child. He also hates the feeling of being numb and rips at his face causing scrapes. He had this done once at age 2 when they pulled his 4 front teeth.

Yea, I still dont know what I am doing.
But I know what I am not doing.

We are going to try the dentist in our hometown. He has some water laser equipment that you do not have to be numb for. But its hard as heck to get an appt.

Also going to speak w a the sedation dental group in the city. I need to see what they use/facility...etc.

I am an adult ICU, RN, not sure if I ever said that- if it can go wrong- I have seen it. I have had root canals wo sedation- I even had a tooth pulled- bc I dont think dental clinics are prepared for a medical emergency. I have always assumed a sedation specialist would be- but I have found that it is actually appalling at the lack of training and requirements to keep our babies safe.
We will do full OR or nothing except maybe gas.

Versed! That's what they have my now four year old before he was 2. Benadryl would've been just as effective.

Re: Breastfeeding and cavities

Does anyone have any recommendations for toothbrushes/paste? I am having a hard time brushing my twins teeth (14months) and they still breastfeed all day/night. One has all her first molars since 12 months and the other twin is getting her top molars now.
