    Lil' Wayne loves his teeth.

    Lil Wayne's jail sentence was delayed for dental surgery – and the rapper made sure he used it to have everything taken care of all at once.

    According to TMZ, the Tuesday dental surgery provided the MC with a whopping eight root canals. The procedure lasted eight hours and also included several redone tooth implants, additional implants and work on his grill and remaining teeth.

    A rep for the rapper did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Access Hollywood.

    Lil Wayne will head to jail on March 2 to serve out his year-long sentence at Riker's Island.

    His latest album, the rock effort "Rebirth," was released earlier this month, and there will be no shortage of the rapper while he's behind bars – according to MTV News, he shot footage for nine videos over a marathon weekend earlier this month.
