I don't know how old your son is, but it's probably preferred to have him sedated so he doesn't remember the experience. It's less traumatic for the child and parent. Who wants to hear their child lay there crying or screaming and not be able to help them? Children are typically scared of any doctor so for your son to be squirming and trying to get away, it's understandable. It's not in how you raise your child at that point.<quoted text>
I don't think I said i blamed them for my son crying.... If that's what you read, then, maybe I should have been clearer. All I said was while he was there to get his tooth out, it Broke. We had to spend $650 for a surgical extraction, which needs sedation. Heard back from the dentist and the actually blamed my son's behavior as the reason for the sedation. My feeling is that there are taking no accountability for this. That the sedation was needed for the procedure, REGARDLESS on how my son's behaviour was.
I am glad you had a better experience than we did. All the best to you.
You're doing a great job and keep pushing for great health and dental care for your son.
