Nazi medical archives have revealed the final tooth about Adolf Hitler - he had terrible bad breath.A modern dental study of the dictator's medical records show a combination of his oddball vegetarian diet and poor cleaning left him with a mouthful of rotten teeth.
"It's likely that Adolf Hitler had very bad breath. He ate very badly and suffered from tooth decay," said modern dentist Menevse Deprem-Hennen after studying the files for her doctorate paper, Dentist of the Devil
"The pattern shows that he seemed to fear his dentist and it appears that Hitler was very sensitive to pain," Deprem-Hennen explained.
"He ordered his personal dentist, Johannes Blaschke, into the Reich Chancellery eight times for a single root canal treatment.
"Normally this is dealt with in one or two sessions. So either he was a bit of a coward about pain or obsessivley fussy," Deprem-Hennen said.
The Nazi medical files show that Hitler had one molar removed following gum disease.
Blaschke, an SS general, treated Hitler and other important Nazi figures for many years. His patient records were thought to have disappeared long ago, reports Bild magazine.
