Lil Wayne

Eight Root Canals

in One Sitting

2/19/2010 2:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lil WayneLil Wayne just had one of the gnarliest oral surgeries in the history of dentistry. We're told it was a marathon session that included a stomach-turning eight root canals at one time.

Our sources say Wayne went under the drill on Tuesday.

We're told during the eight hour procedure, Wayne had his grill worked on, several tooth implants redone, more implants added and had the few real teeth he had left repaired.

This is the critical dental surgery that kept Wayne from being shipped off to the big house last week.

The judge allowed the rapper to put his sentence for felony attempted gun possession on hold until March 2 -- enough time for Wayne to get his mouth prison-ready.

If that's even possible.

Eight root canals translates into LOUSY dental Hygiene for the man. Your supposed to brush them thaings, not just put shiny on top.

The need for immediate and major dental work was just a damned good excuse to buy more time before he has to go to the "cage".....That's what folks pay attorneys for....

He can write more trashy songs while he is in there....muahahahaha

What is this myth about root canals hurting so much? I had one root canal done and it didn't hurt at all. It was just uncomfortable.

He probably has sensitive teeth that are prone to decay. He also doesn't brush because of those stupid grills. Processed sugar is a bitch!
