Tiger’s Tooth Trouble

by Alison

"Dude with a video camera on his shoulder, right in front of me, kneeling, stood up and turned and caught me square on the mouth. He chipped that one, cracked the other one” http://espn.go.com/golf/story/_/id/12236540/tiger-woods-explains-how-lost-front-tooth. That is Tiger Woods’ account of having his tooth knocked out last January. He went on to say, “luckily he hit the one I had the root canal on. That's the one that chipped. But the other one had to be fixed, as well, because it had cracks all through it."

The thing I find interesting about this is how clear it is in the before photo that tooth #9 (upper left front tooth) had an existing root canal. In this photo you can see that the root canal therapy discolored it. Sure enough, Tiger confirmed that the one that broke is, “the one [that] had a root canal.”

This just goes to show that even the super-rich and famous suffer now and then from discolored teeth.
