Alaskan Bush People’s Ami Brown has been suffering medical crises for the last year due to her battle with stage-four lung cancer. Now, RadarOnline.com can report Ami recently took a painful trip to the dentist’s office for another serious medical issue: her rotting teeth! A Spokane, Washington dentist admitted the star has been living for years with pain and neglect. Ami's dental emergency comes on the heels of concerns her cancer has returned. Click through the gallery to learn the tragic details of Ami’s latest health crisis.
Last year, Ami revealed she had less than a three percent chance to live due to her cancer diagnosis. Pictured here on a hospital bed, RadarOnline.com has learned the mother of seven was also in pain over her crooked and painful teeth.
Ami’s dentist in Spokane, Washington – where the Browns recently relocated into a $500,000 lakeside mansion – revealed on her blog how Ami’s life living in the bush has dramatically ruined her teeth.
Last month, the cancer survivor walked into the dentist’s office using a cane, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned. The reality star’s dentist, Dr. DeFelice explained Ami has suffered for years “from dental neglect and painful oral problems.” Here, she and husband Billy Brown discussed the serious medical issue with their kids on their hit show.
DeFelice explained Ami “was always unhappy with her overbite,” so she would hide her teeth, shown here. Upon her visit last month, Ami's dentist said she suffered from “missing teeth and was too embarrassed to show her smile.”
In an effort to “eliminate her pain,” the dentist explained Ami underwent a complete restoration. “We were able to replace her missing teeth, eliminate her pain, and restore this beautiful soul’s smile again,” the dentist revealed.
Alaskan Bush viewers will no longer see a nervous-looking Ami, as photographed here, struggling to speak without showing her teeth.
In addition to her dental issues, Ami was spotted last month using a wheelchair in public and barely talked, a source exclusively revealed to Radar. Weeks later, Ami, Billy and Bear Brown resurfaced at a hospital in Los Angeles, fueling rumors that Ami's cancer has returned.
Ami’s health emergencies have placed a burden on the rest of the Brown clan, most specifically her youngest child, Rain. Rain recently had a break down over her mother’s deteriorating state.
