We love Game Of Thrones, but have you ever noticed the characters’ teeth? They’re not so pretty looking!
We asked Dr. Greg Grobmyer, to “diagnose” the characters’ orthodontic issues using photos and videos from the show. Turns out some of the characters have serious dental problems!
In the final episode of Game of Thrones, Bronn, as the new Master of Coin, offered to rebuild brothels in the capital. We have nothing against brothels in the King’s Landing, but we think building a few dentist offices here and there is a good idea, too. What do you say?

Of course, all these diagnoses are best guesses based on a few photos and videos. No true diagnosis can be made without a clinical exam and x-rays.
Here are a few of the more “interesting” teeth issues on GoT characters.
Gilly: Gilly may have her teeth talked about more than any other character, even though some have much more severe issues. Her “buck teeth” are likely the result of an anterior overjet. That means her top front teeth are too far forward from her lower arch. In real life, the actress is quite a beautiful young woman and the teeth issues don’t seem as pronounced. It is possible she holding her mouth a certain way to enhance the effect of the show.
Samwell Tarly: Gilly’s partner has issues of his own. The actor seems to be missing his left lateral incisor. This has made all his teeth shift over to the left one space. His midline (the space between his two front teeth) also seems shifted to the side.
Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson (Gregor): “The Mountain” is a huge man, but he still doesn’t seem to have room for all his teeth. In photos, his front teeth are crowded and out of line. I wouldn’t say it to his face, though.
Hodor: Another big man with no room in his mouth. Hodor seems to have a very narrow upper arch, which has lead to severe crowding of his upper front teeth. If he had to describe his condition in one word, it would be, “Hodor”.
Bronn: It’s possible Bronn’s strong chin may be the result of a Class III malocclusion. That means his lower jaw is set further forward than it should be. Correcting this issue would require breaking his jaw, resetting it in the proper position, and wiring his mouth shut until it heals. Bronn may have had his jaw broken before, but the actor playing him might want to just leave this situation as it is.
