Biden Cancels Meetings for Two Day Root Canal…KJP Gets Frustrated (Take a Look at the President’s Diet!)
President Joe Biden’s health concerns have continued to mount after he was forced to cancel meetings on Monday to undergo a root canal.
Biden reported tooth pain on Sunday and was seen by a dentist at the White House. The dentist determined that Biden needed a root canal and the procedure was performed on Monday afternoon.
The root canal forced Biden to cancel a meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and a speech to the United States Conference of Mayors.
A White House report indicated:
Presidential physician Dr. Kevin O’Connor revealed that Biden, 80, had the first part of a root canal Sunday after “experiencing some dental pain in his lower right premolar” and that a second procedure would happen Monday.
“Our Presidential Dental Team from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center was able to perform an examination, to include x-rays, in the White House Dental Operatory. They determined that endodontic treatment (root canal) was most appropriate,” O’Connor wrote.
“Initial root canal procedure was performed at the time, with a plan for specialized endodontal follow up in the near future. The President tolerated the procedure well. There were no complications,” O’Connor added.
“He is experiencing further discomfort this morning, which was anticipated. The endodontal specialty team from Walter Reed will complete the President’s root canal today, at the White House.”
An Axios report in May revealed the “tension” within Biden’s inner circle about Biden “eating like a child”: The president likes to drink orange Gatorade and his favorite foods “include peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, BLT’s, pizza, cookies, spaghetti with butter and red sauce, and ice cream that he occasionally makes into a full sundae, according to current and former Biden aides,” the outlet reported.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre got a little snippy when asked about the root canal and Biden’s oral hygiene habits, saying she was not a dentist.
