LeAnn Rimes Dental Troubles

On February 14, 2013, Ms. Rimes filed a lawsuit against her dentist. Her case alleges the dentist was negligent in the work he performed. LeAnn is seeking compensation for physical, emotional, and psychiatric injuries. She claims the injury resulted from faulty crown placement. LeAnn required several more repairs over three years.

Dental Nightmare

The singer has undergone over twenty-nine dental procedures to correct one bad procedure. One of the corrective procedures left her in even more pain. LeAnn has had to endure nine root canal surgeries.

The singer complained of severe toothaches, chronic gum bleeding, and inflammation. She attributes these symptoms to the crown placements on her teeth. Her claim also seeks to recover damages of lost income. LeAnn was unable to perform in concerts and had to cancel many shows.

Dental Work to Relieve TMJ

Initially, LeAnn was seeking relief from TMJ. The dentist had assured Rimes this dental work would improve her appearance. He also believed it would relieve her TMJ-related pain. TMJ is ‘temporomandibular joint’ and the leading cause of facial pain in patients.
