Is oral surgery dangerous for a 95 year old?

Report as

Oral surgery can be dangerous for anyone. Before yo go under anesthesia, you must sign a waiver which states you & your next of kin will not sue the surgeon should something happen to you.

That being said, you need to speak with the surgeon regarding the risks. That is between the surgeon and the patient usually...unless the patient cannot be responsible for themselves, then the guardian is responsible.

The type of surgery will depend on what it is being done for. An abscessed tooth is far more dangerous than surgery.

You need to get a full physical and cardiac work up before going under anesthesia at that age. If it's elective surgery I wouldn't do it.
