Napoleon suffering from a tooth abcess in Saint Helena (end of 1816). Text: Las Cases, in his Memorial from Saint Helena (1822-1823), described Napoleon with his first dental abcess from October, the 26th of 1816 to November, the 9th of 1816. Napoleon refused to have his teeth extracted. Las Cases mentioned first symptoms of scurvy in 1816. He was revoked on that same year.

In July 1817, an other dental abcess was described. On November, the 16th of 1817, Barry O'Meara, his physician, extracted the Emperor's 1st tooth, a wisdom tooth. After January 1818, Napoleon suffered from other dental problem.
