I didn't know about teeth removal pre heart  surgery, though I had learnt that the state of the teeth  can affect the heart. I have just googled and found this information on the NHS site. 

https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/healthy-body/health-risks-of-gum-disease/ Very informative.

 

For some reason I have been slowly losing my teggies over the last few years? I have been going to the same dental practice since 1971ish. Apart from a two year gap in the 80s, through close bereavement, I attended every six months, had them cleaned and polished twice yearly and any treatment my dentist decided I needed.

After the two year break, my dentist would only keep me on as a private patient. I stayed with the practice because I am a chicken and darn't move on. Lots and lots of pounds paid over the years, but still losing them slowly? The dentist retired about four years ago, on recommendation it was arranged for me to go to BDH, Dentist says best because I have problems healing , due to Warfarin? and since then I travel to Birmingham Dental hospital at the moment every two weeks. Still after everything I do.... I am losing them. It doesn't seem to matter that I have done my best, they are waving bye bye slowly.

 

I sympathise Carni.  To use the correct medical terminology, my teeth have always been crap.  I've always brushed and flossed regularly.  I visit the dentist regularly too, yet my teeth just continue to crumble.  Thing is I dread the thought of any type of denture and will endure anything or any cost (within reason) to keep them for as long as possible.  If I had a spare £20k or so, I'd get a nice new gob full of implants and veneers, but that's unlikely to happen.

My first lot of wisdom teeth were removed in June 1974. I was still at school and due to participate in the Speech & Drama Competition which preceded the end of term. This was an event I had won for my house virtually every year I'd been at Manning.  After Acton extracted the wisdom teeth, under the guidance of an anaesthetist who had to be present due to the procedure needing more gas than a dentist was permitted to give, I was unable to speak properly for several weeks.  This being the case, I didnt participate in the competition and my house lost the trophy! I'd never been permitted to collect it at Speech Day anyway, even though my efforts secured it. The house captain had that honour. My attitude, therefore, was s*d you! Let it go elsewhere, which it did.

 

I wasn't popular over that but had more pressing problems to worry about!

 

Mid 80s, a different dentist looked inside my mouth and said, "These wisdom teeth will have to come out!"  :blink:

Me too.       Only worry after cost is that I have heart problems so probably wouldn't be able to have them anyway. Not sure what happens if you have implants and need an MRI at anytime afterwards?

Because of better dental hygiene these days, people aren't losing as many teeth as in past times

 

I'm not sure that's fact, my dentist tell me most under 30s teeth she deals with are shocking? To much surgery drinks? 

 

Me I'm still teething, where's me teething ring?

When I can't sleep at night, I play mental alphabet games. For instance, I have to find 5 authors, composers or artists whose surnames begin with each letter of the alphabet.  Just thinking that, when Ben can't sleep at night, he could find 5 females he's dated for each letter of the alphabet...on every road in Nottingham...and further afield! Knocks Moggiedon into a cocked hat! :wacko:. Zzzzzzzz

I have just had a MRI scan on my shoulder. due to the metal replacement  everything came out as a black image, the consultant told me that they sometimes come out that way. So they then did an ultrasound scan to examine it.  As the wife said they were unable to find any work in me.
