Okay, I've searched the archives and am coming up empty-handed...somewhere or other I've seen a list of recommended supplements before having dental work, like taking extra vitamin C for a few days beforehand. Any ideas or recommendations, anyone? I'm having ceric in a few days, 3yo dd is getting a filling in about a week (novacaine shot for pain -- it's a teeny cavity on her front tooth). It's not a matter of staying calm -- I know what to do for that. I'm just looking for info about keeping inflammation to a minimum and speed healing.

Arnica is great for dental work. I think a search will give you info about it! I'm being pulled from the computer by dd at the moment........
