You are advised appropriately.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us

Well I have viewed the x ray and few of her teeth jave deep decay that needs pulp treatment and crown.

As she is too young to cooperate for treatment without sedation or anaesthesia it is appropriately advised.

It is also correct that complications are not always seen.

So better proceed with the treatment.

In case of doubt consult a Pedodontist and discuss about conscious sedation.

Hope I have answered your query.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.
