Whitney Houston

Final Doctor Visits

For Teeth Whitening, Sore Throat

Whitney Houston
made three visits to the doctor in the week prior to her death, but the trips had NO illicit purpose -- she had a sore throat and got her teeth whitened.

Both family and law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Whitney was recording the title track to "Sparkle" and got a sore throat ... so she went to a doctor to get it checked out. We're told the doctor gave Whitney an Rx for Amoxicillin.   

Whitney was also scheduled to film a commercial for her sister-in-law's candle line, so she went to a dentist twice to get her teeth whitened and cleaned.

And law enforcement sources have reiterated to TMZ ... Whitney was NOT doctor shopping for prescriptions and they believe none of the doctors crossed the line in their treatment of her.

As we first reported, Beverly Hills cops retrieved 6 medication bottles in Whitney's room, including Xanax and Amoxicillin. She also had Midol and ibuprofen.

And as we reported, it is increasingly looking like Whitney mixed Xanax and alcohol before getting in the tub, and that she may have died from a reaction to the drugs ... not from drowning.

Hmmm...when I was 19 had my wisdom teeth pulled. 1 week later had heart attack symptoms. Went to ER and had many cardio test. Diagnosed with mitral valve prolaps and bacterial endocarditis from having the teeth worked on. Was told NEVER to have even a teeth cleaning without being pre-medicated 3 days prior with heavy antibiotics. Wonder if she had an under lying heart defect she never knew about.

Think TMZ knew the article wouldn't get any reaction,who cares she got her teeth cleaned and was prescribed antibiotic. So its come to this, I guess they're running out of sources. So they misspell a word or two to see if anyone is still reading and clicking on.

It may have been drugs, but something still doesn't look right. I do not believe everything was Whitney's fault. It's happening too much in Hollywood. Singers dying back to back. Especially the ones with big money.

Uh, aren't you guys supposed to be professional journalists? Or did you just wake up from your ditch-digger jobs one day and decide it would be fun?
