Several months ago i noticed what looked like a small hole in one of my son's front teeth. i took him to the dentist and was told that it was just a pit or deformation of the tooth caused by a fever i had when i was pregnant and not to worry about it. the pit got bigger so i took him back and they told me that it had decayed. now they want to crown the tooth. they will not be able to sedate him because he is too small so they want me to help hold him while they give him a local and do the procedure. i feel uncomfortable with the idea of holding him down while they do this, but i also don't feel comfortable with having it done in a hospital under general. I also don't feel completely comfortable with the dentist...dr. curran in metarie, LA. He tried to tell me that the decay was the result of my night nursing.
