My 4year old is having all her teeth fixed tomorrow. She cant have anything to eat after midnight and can only have clear liquids after that. Her surgery isnt scheduled til 12:30. we have to be at the hospital at at10:30am. What can I do to help her be okay with not getting breakfast and watching her brother and sister eat food? I was hoping she would have a earlier surgery time.

What is wrong with her teeth already? Just curious, don't take this the wrong way.

She has a mouthful of cavities. Wehave bad teeth in our family. We brush her teeth twice a day and limit junk. I wish the kids had better teeth like their dad. He has never even been to a dentist and never had a toothache.
Her teeth are not straight either but they cant put braces on her until she get her adult teeth.

I see. I know what you mean, I take care of my teeth and I still need some of the back bottom ones removed surgically - that's how bad they are. Poor little one. I'm glad you're taking care of her teeth now so the big ones come in nice and healthy!

My son had it done a few years ago but it was scheduled. For earlier. They said she could have clear liquids including jello and Popsicle. Until 8:30 I dont remember. What it was when. My son had it done.
