Doesn't sound like anyone died.

Still, let's just take away the man's livelihood just in case.

If your dentist has to pretty well knock out people in his chair for routine procedures, then hes either a shiatty dentist(stab stab) or can't handle the squirming little bastard.

There's a kid at a pizza place in North Carolina that could use some sedation dentistry.

I was 16. I was at the dentist for a routine cleaning. The little cleaning device fell off of the cleaning device/drill/god knows what else power thingy, and fell down my throat. Now, Dr. Whatshisface had short, fat fingers and couldn't get the thing out of my choking throat. The freaking nurse had to fish it out while I was choking to death in the chair.

I haven't been to a "Dentist" ever since. And I am over 40. Fark 'em. Their technology hasn't advanced in centuries. I am what Seinfeld would call an "anti-dentite". I am VERY anti-dentite. I have friends who go to dentists and constantly complain of pain. I tell them to stop going and the pain will stop.

Versed is commonly used for dental sedation, but in adults. It's a heavy-duty benzodiazepine--short-acting, but very potent. Demerol is an opioid (synthetic opiate). I'd be scared to death to give either of those to a child. And any medical professional who gives a kid general anesthesia against the wishes of the parent deserves to have his license yanked. If you don't want to treat the child without GA, and the parent won't agree, then you don't treat the patient.

Yeah, I have a major dentist phobia. Once when they were making one of those plaster molds of my mouth while I had braces, the technician put too much plaster in my mouth and it dried in my throat. I couldn't breathe for about a minute and the biatch kept telling me I'd be able to breathe if I just relaxed. I'd had the molds before and knew this time was wrong and I genuinely couldn't breathe.

But I still get my teeth cleaned and tended to. Tooth decay doesn't just affect breath, it can cause all kinds of fatal complications.

When I first started going to the dentist in the eighties my dentist would smoke a pipe while working. I didn't mind, but I can't imagine that ever flying these days.

The stopping breathing isn't that big a deal--sedatives can sedate the breathing reflex.  As long as the doc is prepared for it no catastrophe.  (If the doc isn't--see Michael Jackson.)

Using GA against the wishes of the parents, though--yank his license so fast you give him a papercut.

Ditto here. The dentist I went to in Haddonfield, NJ in late 1960's/1970's when I was a child/teenager also smoked a pipe.  His hands smelled yucky.  Hated the sound of that drill when I had those cavities filled.

Actually that does help autistic children because compression actually calms them down. Don't ask me why though. Also I'm Sure Mom and/or dad was right off to the side in case anything happens.

Similar thing happened to me when I was a kid, around 10. Now in order for me to get work done I have to be fully unconscious.

A lot of people cannot breathe through their nose due to deviated septum, broken nose, allergys/sickness.

Versed's not that bad in a child. We use doses up to 0.2mg/kg to sedate them, and it works as a great adjunct in pain control.

Ah, yes. They told my son that was the "hugging blanket." He wasn't buying it. He ended up ripping part of it during his fillings, only 4 years old at the time, because he reacted poorly to oral sedation. (Most kids chill out with it, some experience a bad trip instead.) When we came back for a follow up, the dentist was brusque with him and he started crying. She told him to "shut up or I will have your mommy leave the room." I get it; pediatric dentistry is really frustrating. If you can't stop yourself from threatening a crying child, you probably should treat adults instead. Cow.

Now that he's older and has a new dentist, he's cooperative, but he's actually asked the staff to "stop using nice words for things to fool me like I'm stupid. Just tell the truth please." They use euphemisms like "wiggle your tooth out" and "you have a sugar bug" and "hugging blanket."

Ha! To be fair, they were trying to get us to let them fit him with full-face headgear to fix a mild underbite. It was horrid looking with a big handlebar down the face, and they kept referring to it as his "super-mask." I imagine kids get tired of being bull-shiated sometimes.

No, I take great care of my oral health, but smoking kills it. Nothing a dentist could do once or twice a year would help it.
