Freddie Mercury's Teeth

Updated on August 23, 2017

Why The Problem With Freddie Mercury’s Teeth Was Never Rectified?

The singer Freddie Mercury was a very talented singer/song writer and yet although he could have arranged to get his teeth fixed he chose not to. There are many reasons why Freddie Mercury's teeth remained the same even though the problem with them could easily be fixed.

Freddie suffered from a condition that causes the upper teeth to overlap the top ones. This is more commonly referred to as overbite and can be a result of a couple of things. It could be something that is hereditary, meaning other members of his family suffered from it or it could be caused by him simply sucking on his thumb as a child at lot. But in the case of Freddie Mercury's teeth the problem was the result that on his upper jaw he had an additional four teeth.

As already mentioned above he could quite easily have gotten this problem rectified, but chose not to. The main reason of course he chose not to have the problem rectified was he was concerned that it would affect his singing voice. Unlike some other singers both then and today his vocal range was amazing as covered 4 octaves.

The actual treatment also would take quite some time to complete and this may have meant him having to cancel tours or appearing on shows. Plus it also meant that there would be times when the group would be unable to record any new music.

Duel Debate

What do you think?

Did he make the right choice?

Also what may have helped him in deciding not to have the work carried out to rectify the problem is of course it become a feature and very much part of whom Freddie was. For many people looks to them weren’t everything what they wanted to enjoy when watching Queen perform was to listen to Freddie’s amazing voice. How Freddie Mercury’s teeth just didn’t come into it.

Listen to his voice.
