Source: TNABrooke Tessmacher published a new blog entry on TNA's website, talking about breaking her jaw back in 2010. Here are some highlights:
Breaking her jaw: In 2010 I broke my jaw. The bone split down the center between my bottom two front teeth. There was no avoiding a traumatic jaw surgery. After that surgery my teeth still looked pretty good. In fact most people would have said I had a nice smile. But, things were not good behind the scenes. After my accident and surgery, my teeth did not align as they had before. My bite was off and this caused my upper and lower back teeth to collide and grind against each other. In no time at all the enamel began to wear away and that exposed extremely sensitive nerves. This made everyday life a painful trial. Biting, chewing and even drinking anything cold became a frightening experience. The pain was interfering with my wrestling career. I was so scared of getting it in the face that I was holding back in the ring. I didn't want to smile on TV because I was so self-conscious. I knew that I needed to see a truly qualified dentist who could solve this problem for good. But, my old fears were holding me back.
Tooth pain following surgery: Finally after living with daily pain for nearly 3 years I reached a point that enough was enough. I began to do research on who was the most qualified dental practice to handle a case like mine. I needed a cosmetic dentist but also a dentist trained in proper bite alignment and the mechanics of how the mouth works. (I've since learned this is called neuromuscular dentistry.) One name kept coming up again and again as I asked my friends, family and contact. That practice was Smile Texas. When I visited their website and saw their amazing gallery of before and after photographs, I was very impressed. Then, I read about the dentists training and how much experience they had with cases like mine. This convinced me to get over my fear and go see them.
The procedure to align her teeth following jaw surgery: It just took two visits, about two weeks apart, for Dr. Davis to complete the reconstruction of my smile. By building up my upper and lower back teeth, he was able to restore my bite to the correct alignment. Then they placed all-porcelain veneers on my front teeth to give me an absolutely stunning smile. It was so easy... I literally slept my way through the entire process!
