San Francisco teen Sophia Robb, 18, says she was watching the blockbuster in cinemas with her best friend when a tense fight scene began.
In the scene, Michael B. Jordan's Killmonger takes off his shirt, revealing a chest and back covered with patterned scars. Sophia told The San Francisco Gate she grabbed her friend's hand, clenched her jaw, and felt a pop in her mouth.
After an emergency appointment, Sophia's orthodontist found the whole incident so amusing he turned to Tumblr, writing a post about his patient. A screenshot of the post was later published on Twitter.
"One of my patients came in for an emergency visit, because she snapped the wire on her retainer watching the movie, when MBJ took his shirt off she clenched her teeth so f**king hard she snapped it," he wrote.
"That is the f**king funniest shit ever to me. This tiny 17-year-old thirsting so goddamn hard she busted steel."
A shocked Sophia saw the post and shared it to Twitter.
"Wait. That girl is me. That is my orthodontist's tumblr. This is a post about me?"
Her tweet received over 100,000 retweets and 400,000 likes.
It even caught the attention of shirtless hunk Michael B Jordan himself, who replied to the teen saying he felt "party responsible" for the broken retainer.
"Let me know if I can replace them" he offered.
Black Panther continues to climb the charts globally. The Marvel blockbuster became the ninth-highest grossing movie of all time at the domestic box office on Monday.
