Nearly a decade ago, this military wife and mother of three, Lori, was diagnosed with severe periodontal disease, and she experienced an extreme recession of her gums and loss of bone in her upper and lower jaws.
Her condition worsened drastically over the past three years, but Lori said her husband, Matt, has always been there to help her through it. So while her soldier husband was stationed in Kuwait for several months, she decided to undergo a dramatic transformation.
She contacted the TV show The Doctors in hopes that they could help with her makeover, and they agreed. She explained that as much as her condition affected her physically, it affected her emotionally even more.
