Pulling teeth

Whilst practising my usual task avoidance strategy (blog-surfing instead of working!) I came across this fascinating post from Justitia. I wonder how far this goes towards explaining loss of short term memory in the elderly. In the past, people often had all their teeth pulled once they started having trouble with them, rather than having endless dental treatment which they didn't want or couldn't afford.
Anyway, I should be all-right. I'll be keeping all my teeth for the foreseeable future unless the government gets its act together and improves access to dental care in North Wales, which at present, for new patients, is non-existent. (See here for my previous rant on this subject). So I should live on into a wise old age - right?
