This photo has been popping up all over social media outlets today. A lot of people have been tagging Damage Control in this photo’s comments. I thought I would share it and share a few comments. This picture shows what looks like teeth in a custom mouthguard. I have read some posts that say that this picture was taken at an MMA event in Canada. Other posts say this occurred in China and reports that this happened to a Brazilian fighter.
These are not real teeth that are stuck in the mouth guard. They are what look like either temporary crowns, a zirconium bridge, or a combination of crowns and a bridge. Either way it sucks that this costly dental work was damaged. However, this fighter was wise to be wearing a solid mouthguard to protect his dental work. He was wearing a custom mouthguard.
From the looks of this photo, however, it appears that it was just his dental work that was damaged and not his teeth. Therefore, he more than likely did not suffer any pain from this incident.
