Abstract

“Not with those teeth, mate.” I was born with four additional incisors, more space in my mouth means more range!" This is the crucial phrase in the scene of the Bohemian Rhapsody movie in which Freddie Mercury presents himself to the other “still not famous” members of future Queen. It’s really like this? Freddie really had four more incisors or were they misrepresented, and will we never know from whom, some orthodontic statements about his occlusion or rather malocclusion? The authors of this paper carried out a careful orthodcntic analysis on the singer’s original photos and videos to try to arrive at seme more precise conclusions from the orthodontic point of view. The purpose of this work will be to try to evaluate the dental occlusion of Freddie Mercury orthodontically.
