Hockey Stick Shatters Caps Player’s Teeth

April 26, 2010 in Dentistry by McCarl Dental Group

Washington Capitals forward Eric Belanger said he felt his teeth shatter immediately upon impact with Canadiens defenseman Marc-Andre Bergeron’s hockey stick. Fans watched as Bellanger handed broken teeth to his trainer. Belanger had his lip sutured and emergency dental work most likely including a root canal between periods and returned to play more than 10 minutes of the game.

Apparently he does not wear a mouth guard because he is already missing three of his top front teeth, making it impossible to bite down on a guard. Belanger will need additional dental care but says he will be 100 percent ready to play in Game 6 Monday night in Montreal. Bergeron wasn’t penalized on the play.
