My DD had major dental surgery last year. Her 4 front teeth were in horrible shape and a couple molars needed work as well. They put her under, pulled the front 4 and one molar, got porcelain in the two front spots and two capped molars. She was in there like an hour, I got to be there with her when she woke up and we went home as soon as she was able to walk around the hospital room. I cried though lol. But she looks so much better now although her current dentist said she'll likely need braces.

My dentist said the same thing :( because they had to pull molars. And that will make grown up teeth grow in funny

That's where we went. I called every other dentist office in Edmonton, and they either weren't taking new patients, or surgery wasn't until November. The issue is that we have to be at the hospital, and cannot get it done in the office. So that's where our biggest problem lays... The Stollery really sucks in that aspect.

Our first dentist said Enamel Hypoplasia. The second dentist said "plain decay" that she sees "every half hour of every day," and I am calling bullshit on that.

How come you have to have it done at a hospital?

Yeah :( but it's totally worth it for a beautiful smile. DH has messed up teeth and more than he's supposed to have, I hope DD doesn't have the same problem.

That is a lot of work! Our cap was going to be on a molar, and I think they're going to cap both... pull 2 teeth, and cap the front 2. I'm glad she was good right away, we will have to be monitored for 2 hours afterwords but she should be fine too. HOPEFULLY.

I have malignant hyperthermia, and it is an allergy (so to speak) to general anesthesia. There is a 50% chance my kids have it, and no non-invasive and safe way to get them tested. So she has to be given non-triggering anesthesia, and monitored by someone who knows what they're dealing with.

2 hours was about how long we stayed as well. I hope she takes it like a champ :) it's tough but guaranteed she'll love showing off her pretty new biters. Good luck!

Both my kids have dental problems. The dentist told me it was from breast feeding at night I don't believe it. Bc lots of other ppl do that and their kids teeth r fine. And BOTH of mine are bad. My son had to have surgery in the hospital in September. His had to be done there bc he fights too much to do it in the office

Our first dentist said that it doesn't cause any issues, and that there is no evidence to support it. The second dentist said it is the ONLY reason my daughters teeth are decaying (they aren't even decaying, they are chipping...). The dentist I am going to now said that anything will affect teeth that are already defective, and that it doesn't hurt to wipe with a warm washcloth after nursing just in case. It's funny when dentists can't agree on it, hey?
