Gold teeth

Got into a conversation about gold teeth, although a serious question I thought Lil's was the best place for this.

I have one, and have told my sons it's the family heirloom and all they're getting from me when I snuff it, which led on to...

What happens to your gold teeth when you snuff it?

Do they bury you with them? If so I'm off to buy a metal detector and a shovel.

If you're cremated, they don't end up in the urn, so where do they go??
I think your kids will have to avail themselves of a pair of pliers before they wave you off!

From the burial guide, and assuming that teeth are classed as medical implants:

Metal residue from nails, screws, staples, jewellery, medical implants or items placed in coffins, survives the cremation process in various forms. These are removed following the processing of the cremated remains and are interred in the grounds of the crematorium. At the present time metal residue and medical implants are not recycled
Get cremated with a coffin full of fireworks. The duty burning sentry will cack himself.

And your tooth will be taken with you.
