Hi. My three year old has some cavities to fill (8 to be exact....i know i know how awful...we brush and brush, he inherited this from me). Anyway, he is very stubborn and uncooperative when it comes to working in his mouth. Our family holistic dentist recommened IV sedation. But, a feel uncomfortable. Could someone who has been through a similar situation explain pros and cons? Maybe smilemamma.........Any information would be helpful. Thanks in advance......Aimee

I just had IV sedation done for oral surgery a few weeks ago. It is the 'norm' to go with gen. anes. but I am pregnant, so they did IV instead.

I expected it to be... just relaxing or something, I guess. But it knocked me OUT. I vaguely remember at one point I lifted my hand a bit and the nurse told the Dr. to give me more. Other than that, I only remember getting there and leaving!

So it was definitely enough to keep me calm and happy, if that helps. But, of course, I am not three.
