My. Mom. Had. Rheumatic. Fever. Back. In. The. 1940s. The. Doctor. Told. Her. That. It. Was. Caused. By. Her. Bad. Teeth. So. He. Took. Them. Out. Is. That. True?????
Generally rheumatic fever occurs more often in children than in adults, it's because adults have stronger immunity. Rheumatic fever occurs more often in people with weaker immunity. A long-time oral problem, like a few bad teeth, means a chronic infection, that actually weakens the immunity. From this perspective, your mom's doctor did the right thing.
