I have been waiting for over 30 years to have my right knee replaced. I was told I was too young. Wait until I'm 55. But I am now bone on bone at age 52. My ortho had me scheduled to replace my knee, but then refused because I have a deep decay in one tooth. I've already had all upper teeth pulled. I'm really not concerned about this one tooth. I need this knee done Now. Is it really necessary to get this tooth pulled before surgery?
