Thank you for posting your query.

I am amazed that you are now 100+ years old, as you had A Fib and seizures in 1912...or is it 2012?

In any case, seizures are not the cause of dental decay. Dental decay is due to the local causes and your dentist would take care of that.

For seizures, you may require evaluation & treatment, as it may be due to lack of blood flow to brain.

Please consult a neurologist.

Wishing you good health,
