One common accident that occurs to a boxer is losing a tooth after a fight. Hard-knocking punches may have the power to break a boxer’s teeth. In case this happens, there is a dental remedy-using dental implants. Here are ways to be on your feet and teeth again.
(1) Refrain from heavy training for a while. A boxer who loses not only the fight but also his teeth gets up with new strength: the capability to take much stronger punches. But this does not happen immediately; it takes a lot of proper rest and good mindset. The lost tooth or teeth can never be reinstalled. Preparing for a dental implant, a boxer needs to be in good health; he must stop from heavy training before (or after) the operation.
(2) Go to a dentist. Dental implants are more durable than replacement teeth. Its root is made from titanium, a very strong metal; the artificial tooth is the same with the ones used in removable dentures (or maybe not). The operation involves money and time. After some preliminary examinations, a dentist drills hole in the jawbone. The screw then is inserted to act as implant root. After weeks (or maybe months, according to certain conditions), the artificial tooth/teeth and other things may be placed.
(3) Time to heal. Placement of implant may take weeks and even months to totally heal and be able to withstand power punch. A boxer must eat healthy foods rich in calcium; abstain from training: it may cause defects in the implant and even to his general health.
(4) Ready to box again. When teeth are ready, he must make sure the past accident never happens again. He must also have a regular check up with his dentist for more development. Also he must choose a durable mouth piece to protect his teeth. He must be conscious with the safety of his teeth and that will affect his sparring. But true fighters never lose hope and confidence – it sounds trivial but true.
Win the fight and never lose teeth with dental implants. This piece of dental technology adds strength and power. To be strong is not only a matter of natural capability of the body; it also consists of proper training and mindset-and maybe reliable teeth.
