Q.

2 year old with a cavity

Hi my 2 year old has a cavity in a molar at the back?
should this be filled, will they have to put her under general anaeshetic? is this all safe? what are my safest options? I don''t think the chair is going to be a very good experience for her.

GA for such young children is VERY common and safe.
The tooth can be filled if not too severely decayed.
Have a consultation at your dentist and discuss the treatment options.
