This is sometimes the only way to work on a child's teeth if it is really needed. Discuss all the possible alternatives with your dentist.

sorry I meant to say the whole thing was traumatic for me, not for her, she was quite relaxed, we just prepared her with books - Good Luck

My daughter went into theatre at 3 for fillings and although it was traumatic for her, the procedure was very quick (half an hour) and there were no complications. Pray - it works

There is NO prcedure without risks!

You & your doctor must outweigh the benefits vs the risk and then make an informed decision.

My daughter was 2 years 9 months when she went. The procedure is safe.
