I have a question, it is now some years since I had been at the dentist.

I have and still been very overweight, but have been through a major weight loss, and has now come forward to the teeth again to have the attention.

My question is whether I can possibly be addressed in an alm. tandlægestol. At the time of writing weighs I 168 kg.

Mvh Søren


Dear Søren

Immediately, I don't mean your weight will pose a problem for most behandlerstole. But it all depends on what behandlerstol the dentist has. Most behandlerstole have a maximum weight they can withstand, which your dentist can inform you about. So you will need to contact the dentist to get the information.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards
