New here- needs help -URGENT please

I am new here, and have a problem with vet and a dog...

I have a 13 year old dog that has bad gums and teeth, but she is healthy , happy and has no signs of pain at all. She will be 14 in 4 months and we love her a lot. I took her to the vet, it is a new vet as we moved to new place, and the vet wants to do surgery on her teeth and take them out. I don't feel comfortable doing that as she is old and looks and feels great as it is now , and doing this surgery will have its complications, pain and problems after. I want her to live her life happily and healthy as much as can be , in the few years she has left to live due to her age , and it looks to me that living as she is now is the best way for her. She eats normally and very alert, happy and alive as a young dog.
The vet threatened me that if I don't do the surgery or put her to sleep she will call the spca and "they will know what do with you" her exact words.
My question is what can I do if this happen, will I be able to refuse to do that ,can they force me to do the surgery, can they take my dog away, any information would be greatly appreciated.Thank you

I suggest to look for second opinion IF THE DOG IS NOT IN PAIN WHY TO DO A SURGERY
