People are accusing Giannis Antetokounmpo of having a cavity and root canal surgery due to neglecting his teeth. After it was announced Giannis Antetokounpo was having oral surgery conspiracy theories started to arise about the condition of his teeth. Most people think Giannis Antetokounmpo had a root canal done to alleviate his toothache, which was most likely caused by a cavity.
Giannis had been suffering from a toothache that a dentist decided needed invasive action. During a root canal the doctor drills out the pulp of a damaged tooth, and seals it with an artificial germ proof substance. Nerves irritated by infection from cavities left untreated for too long is usually the culprit of a toothache.
Perhaps Giannis Antetokounmpo was eating bit too much candy. Hopefully he wasn’t forgetting to floss everyday. With how dedicated he is to sustaining greatness on the basketball court, maybe Giannis forgot to take care of his teeth in the midst of the madness.
It appears even the reigning MVP succumbs to the pain of a toothache.
