So sorry to hear of your father's passing. As I'm sure you know, an EF of 35% is just over CHF levels so his heart was week. The tooth pain could very well have been a symptom of a heart attack with muscle cells dying. Unfortunately, these things can happen just that fast. As more muscle is killed, the heart could start having trouble getting an electrical impuse to all the chambers of the heart and he may had a sudden cardiac arrest.
