Hi friends! My daughter is 6 and was just diagnosed with type 1 about three weeks ago.
What I’m wondering is, for those of you who’ve have dental work that required you to have some sort of sedation, how was that managed for you?? We had a dentist appointment today and she was SOOO anxious she was crying and screaming about literally everything they tried to do. She has a couple small cavities, but the dentist suggested we come back another day and try one of the gasses they have to let her sleep briefly while they fix the cavities.
Right now I’m playing phone tag with the dentist and the endocrinologist offices to figure out what’s safe and what’s not and does she have to be NPO before, etc. etc. Totally stressed out trying to process this and not get it wrong. I think she definitely needs to be asleep for this, but I just want her to be safe.
What is your experience with this? Thanks in advance.
