DD is going to have to have extensive dental work done, and it is very obvious that she will not be able to be conscious for it. We took her to the dentist today and she completely fell apart, wouldn't even let them look in her mouth. So clearly we're going to have to go the sedation route. I am beyond terrified of this. Devastated. Panicked. Need I go on? I feel like a complete failure as a mother that this is necessary, but that's another post.
Apparently there are two ways to go about this: IV sedation with a pediatric anesthesiologist IN a dentist's office, or general anesthesia at the hospital. Does anyone know anything about this stuff? Have any experience here? I'm going to be digging as well as talking to our ped and my BIL, who just completed his medical degree.
