Madonna’s Dental Grill Is Nothing New

Madonna was seen recently whilst out for her birthday flashing a dental grill. This is a craze that has become increasingly popular among celebrities over the past few years and seemed to start with  musicians, in particular hip hop artists.

However. on a recent trip to Mexico, I visited one of the 7 Wonders of The Modern World, Chichen Itza. This was built by the Mayans well over 1000 years ago.

A fashion for them was tooth art, where teeth would be decorated with precious stones and gems.

There are very mixed opinions about dental grills and how they look, but please beware that if you have had or are considering a grill, they can increase the risk of dental decay and gum disease, especially if they are poor fitting.
