I just took ds to the dentist suspecting cavities. Fortunately he only had one very small one in a very deep molar. Ds wanted to get it filled right then and there. I was hesitant but I figured if my 3 year old WANTED a filling after having the procedure explained to him that I really shouldn't argue.

The dentist described the filling material as containing glass and flouride and being good for our situation because it can be set wet. He drilled, squeezed it in and smoothed it in with vaseline. That was it. Took absolutely no time at all. Happy 3 year old. No more cavity.

So here I am 2 days later shocked that I let someone fill my child's tooth with a substance I never heard of. What is this stuff? Is it safe? The only information I have found says that it is set with a light. His wasn't. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
