Steven Tyler Receives Dental Implants After Fall

ASUNCION, Paraguay (AP) — The Paraguayan dentist who treated Steven Tyler said Wednesday the Aerosmith singer is “doing splendidly.”

Dr. Maria Bastos also said Tyler was “friendly and humble” as he received two dental implants. She told the Monumental radio station on Wednesday that Tyler “surprised me with his cheerfulness.”

Officials of the Garzia Group that is organizing the Aerosmith concert in Paraguay said the 63-year-old singer apparently became dizzy due to gastrointestinal problems and fell in his hotel bathroom. He hit his face, suffered cuts and broke two teeth, forcing a one-day concert delay in the Paraguayan capital of Asuncion. It’s now scheduled for Wednesday night.
