My husband is 91 years old and has been a type 2 diabetic for at least 20 years. He takes metformin and repaglinite plus atenolol and amlodipin-benazopril, and in addition aspirin and fish oil. X-rays show that he has 6 infected teeth, and his dental surgeon plus his cardiologist and internist have said that they should come out. He is resisting this because he would lose the only teeth that he has to chew with.
His daily blood sugar reading is between 100 and 120. He has no tooth aches or gum problems, and is resisting the idea of extracting the teeth.
Has anyone had experience with this sort of situation?
