Options: Options- local anesthetic with or without sweet air (if available) or nothing? ; amalgam or tooth colored composite? (i prefer composites); pay by credit card, check or cash? ; have him discuss these options with you and ask what he would do in his own mouth. It's really very simple and easy.
