Olympic medalist breaks tooth


The German Luger, David Moeller, may best be remembered after the 2010 Winter Olympic games as the guy who broke his tooth biting into his silver medal. “The photographers wanted us to bite into our medals at the presentation ceremony. And a corner of my front tooth broke off.” Puns aside, Moeller did not hurt his molar only his front tooth. He immediately went to see a dentist to have the tooth fixed. “…because I want to have nice pictures and happy memories of my Olympic Games, I went to the dentist to get it repaired,” he said.

Dr. Jason McCargar says that it is easy to break a tooth especially if biting into such a hard object. “The jaw exerts a tremendous amount of force upon biting, and when all that force is put onto one edge of a tooth, it is inevitable that something has to give,” said the cosmetic dentist, based in Scottsdale. The 28 year old luger said that he did not feel any pain.
