Lil Wayne went to the dentist Tuesday (Feb. 16) for an 8-hour procedure that included a whopping eight root canals, in addition to some dental work on his tooth implants and remaining real teeth, reports TMZ.com.

As previously reported, the New Orleans-bred rapper was scheduled to be sentenced and begin serving time on Feb. 9, after pleading guilty to a second-degree attempted gun possession charge this past October but was delayed due to the aforementioned dental surgery.

Weezy was given 16 days to get the surgery and recover and is scheduled to appear in court again on March 2. He will most likely only have to serve eight-months on good behavior of his one-year sentence.

Wayne still faces drug and weapons charges in Arizona. That trial is scheduled to begin in March. —Brooklyne Gipson
