She seems to be making a habit of visiting the dentist, having been in the chair several times already this year and admitting to fans that she suffers from bruxism, now Brooke Shields has found a new way to calm her nerves when visiting the clinic – drinking wine. The actress posted a picture of herself this week sitting in the dentist’s chair with a full glass of wine; she can be seen smiling broadly and showing no signs of anxiety at all.
The 49-year-old was visiting the dentist on Thursday but did not specify what she was getting treatment for; it has been suggested that she was getting further repair work following some dental damage due to bruxism – a condition that presents with grinding and clenching of the teeth. She added the caption ‘Back at the dentist but this time prepared!’
Brooke posted a photo of herself about to undergo treatment for the condition back in March, adding the caption ‘More dental surgery! I grind my teeth! D*mn!’ alongside the image of her with a mask over her nose to administer nitrous oxide.
