Five Teeth Extracted from Miley Cyrus Seems to Hit Her like a Wrecking Ball in Brentwood, CA

If there is one song that stands out from the many recorded songs of the Hollywood star Miley Cyrus, it’s the famous “Wrecking Ball.” Its deep lyrics and unique music video caught the attention of the people including Cyrus’ fans. Rumors said that the piece was particularly written by the star herself months before she ended up her engagement with Liam Hemsworth. Just as the emotional song placed a significant part in Miley Cyrus’ love affair, so is to her dental life as well!

Two years after the song was released, Miley Cyrus’ 22-year-old self, posted five freshly extracted tooth and a selfie during her recovery with the gauze tucked in the side of her mouth on Instagram. Seems like she totally hit by the heavy metal ball, hasn’t she?


What is involved during a Tooth Extraction?

A pulled-out tooth in adulthood is sometimes necessary. No matter how the permanent tooth withstands for a lifetime, tooth extraction might be needed for reasons such as having a badly damaged tooth, repairing tooth decay, preparing the crowded mouth for orthodontic treatment, and more. For the Hannah Montana star, according to one of the social media source, the dental professional acknowledged the need for Cyrus to extract her wisdom teeth.

The procedure will start off by the dentist injecting the local anesthetic to patients to numb and prepare the area of the tooth before it is removed. In some cases, a strong general anesthetic might be used to avoid pain and discomfort throughout the body. The dental professional may also get rid of the gum and bone tissue that covers the impacted tooth. It will be followed then by a gentle back-and-forth tooth rocking with the use of the forceps to loosen it from the jaw bone and ligaments. After the pulling process, a gauze pad will be applied into the socket to help stop bleeding. A few stitches may also be required.

Like any other dental procedure, tooth extraction is also not an exception to some risks and discomfort. Nevertheless, Arbor Dental can minimize these complications to make every patient’s Tooth Extractions treatment more comfortable. We help them relax by using a wide array of mediums such as warm blankets, soft pillows, scented towels, wireless headphones, televisions, and many others.
