US President Joe Biden has had to undergo painful dental work. This also has an effect on his appointment calendar. The White House postponed a conversation between the 80-year-old and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

DrThe White House has postponed a meeting between US President Joe Biden and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. The reasons for moving the date to Tuesday were not explained. But before that, it became known that Biden had to undergo root canal treatment on Monday due to a toothache. Another date for the 80-year-old was canceled for Monday. A joint press conference with Stoltenberg and US Secretary of State Antony Blinken is planned for Tuesday (local time).

The president’s personal physician, Kevin O’Connor, said Monday that Biden had complained of pain on Sunday. Then Biden was examined in the White House treatment room and x-rays were taken. Finally, the Democrat underwent root canal treatment, the personal physician announced. Then Biden was in pain again Monday morning (local time). This was expected, according to O’Connor.

Biden eventually underwent another root canal. Biden spokeswoman Karen Jean-Pierre said in the afternoon (local time) that the routine had been successful. The US President is doing well and wants to continue working in his private rooms at the White House for the rest of the day. Biden was not treated under general anesthesia.

At 80, Biden is the oldest president in US history. His age has long been the subject of heated debates, not just among Biden’s political opponents. The Democrat wants to run for re-election in 2024. At the start of a possible second term, he will be 82 years old.
