Jewel to undergo dental surgery after crash

Jewel is set to undergo dental surgery after a car crash in March (11) left her with a fractured tooth.

The star, who was pregnant at the time, was struck by a fire truck as she was driving in Stephenville, Texas. She was taken to a nearby hospital as a precaution.

At the time Jewel insisted she was "a little sore and banged up" but told fans she and the baby were "fine".

But now the star has revealed the incident left her with teeth trouble - and she fears she may have to have an implant to replace the busted molar.

In a post on Twitter.com she writes, "Jst (just) out of dentist office. Fractured root in a tooth from my car crash a few months ago-may need a dental implant!"
