Goldberg Cracks Down On Dental Care

Subscribe to Whoopi Goldberg alerts

Comedienne Whoopi Goldberg has urged U.S. TV audiences to take their dental health more seriously - after discovering she may lose her two front teeth during a recent check-up.
Goldberg was forced to miss an episode of The View - the talk show she co-hosts - on Wednesday (22Oct08) after root canal surgery left her in pain and her face badly swollen.
And the 52-year-old reveals she was shocked to hear her poor dental hygiene may leave her with a set of false front teeth.
She says, "I had emergency surgery. People don't pay attention to it... we think we know you've got to take care of your teeth... I neglected them and I discovered I had so much bone loss that I'm probably going to be losing my two front teeth."
