My four year old just got back from the dentist.
This is his treatment plan:
extraction of back two molars.
3 crowns (back top and one beside)
and two small fillings in front.
THey want to do GA in an outpatient clinic. I am wrapping my head around the fact that he has to go under and I won't have any choice in the matter and it's what's best for him. But I am still so, so scared. Neither of my children have ever been under.
This is so much worse than I thought it would be. I would have guessed he needed the crowns and fillings, but not the extractions. We knew he had two cavities but never knew it would be this bad. I am devistated and feel like such a failure.
I know I am sounding like such a cry baby and feeling sorry for myself, but I am scared to death about him going under.
I'd appreciate any words of encouragement or helpful stories. Specifically if your child went under in an outpatient setting. Thank you so much!
