Today's Mike Tyson is a very different man from the person of yesterday. Tyson is now a vegan, who spends his time raising pigeons, living paycheck to paycheck and enjoying his family. Of his new life he has said "I'm totally destitute and broke. But I have an awesome life, I have an awesome wife who cares about me. I'm totally broke. I had a lot of fun. It (losing his money) just happened. I'm very grateful. I don't deserve to have the wife that I have; I don't deserve the kids that I have, but I do, and I'm very grateful," (The View, 2010).
It is for this reason, Mike Tyson's smile is generally so broad. But not so long ago his grin was altered when his infamous front gold tooth went AWOL. Of course the tale of his missing tooth is larger than life itself. According to an interview with his wife Kiki Tyson, that tooth was lost not due to dental neglect but instead "...when his tiger, Kenya, head-butted him," (Review-Journal).
Evan Rachel Wood, A Knock Out in Paris
Evan Rachel Wood made a name for herself starring in the complicated movie Thirteen, as well as delivering powerful performances in films including Across the Universe and the HBO adaptation of Mildred Pierce. She has accomplished a lot in her few dozen years on earth and because of that she decided to party to celebrate her birthday in style.
Celebrating a 24th birthday is a rite of passage for most. While many mere mortals stay close to home for the occasion or take a weekend trip to Vegas, celebrities have more money and opportunities and therefor can rejoice anywhere they choose. Actress and singer Evan Rachel Wood enjoyed her birthday in Paris, but some rough moves on the dance floor resulted in one of her teeth getting knocked out.
According to a report from People Magazine from the Toronto Film Festival Wood said "It was just past midnight and I was dancing with my friends in Paris, and just boom, I caught an elbow right in the left side of my face. I knew right away when I closed my mouth that something was really wrong." She was treated by a professional dentist and now wears a false tooth to the void.
Even though celebrities have more money than the rest of us, their teeth are still vulnerable to dental problems and mishaps. Individuals without the huge resources of their favorite star are advised to be careful with any images they may send, their pets and while dancing the night away as any of those can lead directly to a conversation with a dentist. No dentist, no problem simply call 1-800-DENTIST to find a dental care provider to assist you with your greatest dental embarrassment.
