I spoke with a family representative and confirmed that Mischa Barton was taken to the hospital due to complications from oral surgery.
Contrary to the gossip that has been tweeted by the LA Police and Access Hollywood there was nothing illicit going on as was implied.
The surgery involved deep impacted wisdom teeth that had to be removed from her jaw bones.
Her family is with her and she is being treated with antibiotics.
As a rule of thumb, the younger the age of the person having the wisdom teeth extractions the less potential they will have for experiencing complications. Studies have shown that the number of complications, related to both healing as well as the procedure itself, that occur in association with wisdom tooth extractions increases once a patient has passed into their mid to late 20’s.
The pain associated with a dry socket can be moderate to severe in intensity and often has a throbbing component. The pain can be just localized to the extraction site or it may radiate from the extraction site to the patient’s ear or eye (on the same side of their face).
A dry socket, more formally referred to as alveolar osteitis by dentists, is a fairly common complication associated with tooth extractions. The formation of a dry socket involves a scenario where the blood clot which forms in the tooth socket’s after the extraction isn’t properly retained (either it disintegrates by way of fibrinolysis or becomes dislodged). Since this blood clot is an important factor in protecting the boney socket and initiating the healing process, the healing of the extraction site is interrupted and becomes delayed.
We wish Mischa a speedy recovery!
This isn’t directly Mischa related but it bodes well for the potential success of TBL.

AUSTRALIAN design duo Sass & Bide wanted to celebrate 10 years at the top of their nation’s design tree – and so created the Shine Initiative in association with Barnardos. The designers – famous for their great denim and shiny Rats leggings – asked some of their celebrity friends, including Kate Moss, Mischa Barton and Twiggy, to create artworks depicting what “shine” means to them.
Launched at this year’s Australian Fashion Week in April, the works are now online at www.sassandbide.com – where fans can place bids on them before the bidding continues at an event at The Dairy in London on July 23. The proceeds of the auction will be donated to Barnardos UK and Australia to help fund workshops for abused children, hosted by the Sass & Bide designers; Heidi Middleton and Sarah-Jane Clarke.
“We are so excited to be back in London for our Shine project,” the designers told VOGUE.COM. “London is where our label was born so to be back here celebrating 10 years, exhibiting the works of 10 special friends for a cause that is so close to our hearts, it’s a really wonderful feeling. Each child we help will also receive a grant to pursue a dream.”
To view the artworks, or to find out more about the auction, visit www.sassandbide.com.
To celebrate ten years of creating, we invited ten of our favourite souls to interpret what ‘shine’ means to them…Kate Moss, Barry Humphries, Rankin, Daisy Lowe, Sam Taylor-Wood, Emma Hawkins, Darren Middleton, Twiggy, Daimon Downey, Mischa Barton, and Sarah-Jane Clarke & Heidi Middleton have each created artworks which will support ‘The Shine Collective’ project, a sass & bide and Barnardos initiative. The charity collaborative launched in April ’09 at Australian Fashion Week with an exhibition of the artworks. The artworks will be auctioned in London on July 23rd, 2009. The proceeds will fund creative counseling workshops for abused children and will be hosted by Sarah-Jane Clarke (sass) and Heidi Middleton (bide), in Australia and Britain.
