As shared by a UK-Based Nigerian man who is practicing medical doctor, Harvey Olufunmilayo, on Twitter.
“A dentist friend of mine saw a female patient who came to ask him to remove one of her tooth and replace it with plastic.
He asked her why.
She said because her husband demanded it.
He examined her and found NO medical reason whatsoever to remove the tooth.
What should he do?
He further said he told her
“Okay. Put aside what your husband wants. Don’t YOU like the tooth? Do YOU want it removed?
And she said “NO, I don’t want it removed. But my husband asked me to remove it”
And medically it is BETTER to keep natural tooth. What should my friend do?”
