My four-year-old son had a toothache and I took him to a dentist. He got a deep cavity in his first molar. The dentist said my son has four teeth that need to be crowned. She also wanted to extract his two loose teeth. These teeth are ready to come out on their own any time soon. Since I cannot afford all of these, I have asked the dentist if she can just treat the deep cavity for now. She insisted that he needs all the work done.
Should I go to another dentist who will treat the cavity only? The loose teeth are not bothering him and they will come out very soon so I don’t think it is necessary to extract them. Any thoughts? Are crowns for baby teeth necessary? Thank you in advance for any suggestions or comments.
