Bella Hadid's Battle with Lyme Disease and Recent Tooth Issues

Celebrating five months of sobriety, Bella Hadid recently opened up about her ongoing health battle with Lyme disease. The 26-year-old supermodel contracted the tick-borne illness in 2012, but it has resurfaced recently, causing a chain of events that led to her latest health condition.

Recent Tooth Issues

A year after undergoing emergency root canal surgery, Bella developed a low-grade infection under a neighboring tooth. She took to social media to update her followers on the situation, stating, “Tooth update.

There was a low-grade infection underneath the tooth, NEXT to the tooth I thought was suffering (she’s good) which is the one I got a root canal on a year ago. It continued to spread down, causing a low-grade infection in my jaw.

I have felt in my heart for months that I needed this tooth out, to heal the rest, and if not, it was going to take me out!”

The Effects of Lyme Disease

Bella attributes her recent tooth issues to her Lyme disease, which has flared up.

She explains that the illness attacks the teeth, jaw, brain, spine, bones, and the entire nervous system. In a TikTok video, she says, “This made my Lyme flare up, which means the Lyme is attacking the places that are suffering ie tooth, jaw, guy, brain, spine, bones etc oh, and the entire nervous system”.

The supermodel goes on to say that any minor trauma to the body, physical or mental, can cause Lyme to flare up.

@babybella777 Tooth update! There was a low-grade infection underneath the tooth, NEXT to the tooth I thought was suffering(she’s good) which is the one I got a root canal on a year ago.

It continued to spread down,causing a low grade infection in my jaw. I have felt in my heart for months that I needed this tooth out, to heal the rest, and if not, it was going to take me out!Please listen to your bodies my friends please!!!

This made my Lyme flare up, which means the Lyme is attacking the places that are suffering ie tooth, jaw, gut, brain, spine, bones, etc oh and the entire nervous system? Any minor trauma to the body whether it’s physically or mentally can cause Lyme to flare up.

My jaw has been so inflamed, and would flare up/inflame randomly when I was/am overly stressed or over working. Lyme flare ups happen all the time, so that doesn’t worry me, it’s more-so the jaw situation and how radiating the pain is especially with the Lyme.

Some days okay! and some days are difficult. but when my jaw/nerves started to hurt on an aggressive level; it just went 0-100. And now we’re here! I am ok though!! i feel better when I’m riding! (And after starting the 2 rounds of anti-biotics) (that in itself is a wild ride) I think my horses just really take my mind off the pain.

This is the reason i stopped riding 10 years ago, and i wasn’t going to let it get to me at my first show back?anyways , moral of the story , I’m getting this tooth extracted tomorrow! Going to heal that infection!

Ive never been so excited go to the dentist..thank you for checking in on me I see you all!! wish me luck!!! ? PRETTY BOY FLOW - STURDYYOUNGIN

Dealing with the Condition

After landing in Florida a month ago, Bella's doctors prescribed antibiotics and Motrin 800 for her jaw infection.

She says that some days the pain is manageable, but on other days, it becomes difficult to bear. In her latest TikTok, she states, “And now we’re here!” The supermodel will be getting her infected tooth extracted to heal the infection and is "excited to go to the dentist." In 2019, scientists declared Bella the most beautiful in the world due to her perfect facial features, which were analyzed using the theory of the golden ratio.

Despite her seemingly perfect proportions, Bella continues to face health issues, but she remains strong and optimistic.
