A 25-year-old woman who was involved in a bike accident is set to have her jaw rebuilt with cow bones. Zsuzsa Goodyer collided with her boyfriend during a bike ride in December last year and damaged her teeth and her jaw very badly; she is currently wearing dentures before she undergoes the operation to repair her jaw, followed by dental implants.
Zsuzsa said that the pair was cycling home and the front wheels struck each other, causing her to be thrown from the bike; she landed face first on the pavement and lost her teeth. She revealed that she doesn’t remember ‘a great deal’ but recalls holding her teeth after they were knocked out. She said to The Sun ‘I didn’t realise how bad it was at first. I think the adrenaline was just carrying me through.’
The treatment will involve placing cow bones into the jaw to rebuild it so that it is strong enough to hold the dental implants in place, Zsuzsa jokes that she will ‘be part cow’ after the operation to repair her jaw and give her back her smile. She even managed to raise most of the money to pay for her operation by setting up a GoFundMe page, where the public generously helped her out to get the treatment.
