Angela Deem showed before and after photos of the latest surgery she underwent for her teeth on 90 Day Fiancé. The reality star from Georgia got into a relationship with Nigerian man Michael after meeting him on social media in 2017. Angela was first featured on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days in which she met Michael in person, but their relationship wasn’t a piece of cake owing to cultural and age differences with trust issues. Fans detested Angela bossing Michael around just because she could provide him with a Green Card. However, even after they got married, despite multiple breakups, it’s been two years since Michael has been waiting for his K-3 visa.
The wait, which was affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, made the 90 Day Fiancé star want to look younger for Michael, so she decided to undergo weight loss surgery. Angela lost about 110 pounds in just eight months, amidst Michael being against her going under the knife. Michael did come around eventually, and Angela kept undergoing various surgeries. But the biggest one she kept waiting for was her dental surgery. Angela had an accident when she was 18 years old, and over time, smoking and menopause caused her teeth to fall out and made Angela insecure. On 90 Day Diaries, Angela spoke about wanting to do away with the dentures she got at 18 and get implants.
In episode 8 of 90 Day Diaries season 4, Angela’s periodontist, Dr. Matt Asaro, explained that he would be giving Angela a fixed lower denture on her lower arch and an upper conventional denture on her upper arch. For this, they had to remove Angela’s bad teeth and clean out all the infections to go through bone grafting “as much as possible” to augment the area. After the episode, Angela reposted a before and after smile makeover photo collage, shared by Dr. Asaro. Angela has been posting videos showing off her new smile on Instagram. The complex procedure took five hours, and Michael gave Angela company via her phone before she went into surgery. Angela started to wake up in the middle of the operation, but she was put under anesthesia again.
A loopy Angela woke up, and when she saw her smile, she asked herself, “Who is that b****?” Angela now smiles more confidently than before, knowing that her teeth are not decaying on the inside. Angela couldn’t function from the pain and throbbing that went inside her mouth. In the beginning, fans were unable to see the damage on the inside of reality TV star Angela’s mouth. However, over the last four or five years that Angela has been with Michael, her teeth have deteriorated so much that he could see it. Angela spoke about Michael telling her that he loves her. “Mouths gross me out,” Angela confessed. She knew that her own mouth used to gross Michael out.
Angela was a high-risk patient because of her smoking. When someone who smokes gets dental implants, the risk of failure is much higher. The implants had to take to the bone, so Angela decided that every time she would get the urge to smoke, she would look at herself in the mirror. The dentist told Angela to stop smoking for effective surgery results. Sadly, Angela was caught smoking by 90 Day Fiancé fans earlier this month at a party, though she claims to have cut back.
