My 6yo S is getting a cavity filling on 7/19. She's never tolerated tooth brushing well and I have a hard time forcing m brush to those back teeth...my husband has an even harder time - he gives in pretty fast. That said, I shouldn't be surprised about the cavity but I can't help feeling guilty.

Our dentist referred her to a pediatric deintist specializing in Special Needs. I had to choose sedation method and I chose the highest of them all without her being put out totally. I don't want her to hurt. It's more than the Valium/nitrisse mix....it's some kind of liquid that runs through the system for an hour, then the nitrisse. Even choosing the heavier method they said she will be upset....she just won't remember a second of it. They said she needs a day with an adult...another adult with the siblings seperated.

Has anyone had experience with this??? I hope I chose right.

She will need extractions in a year, but ortho wants to give her the year to develop more coping skills and see if it can be done outside of the hospital = less invasive.
