Pitchside dental treatment for Lionel Messi


Latest News

Pitchside dental treatment for Lionel MessiDuring the famous El Classico clash pitchside dental treatment for Lionel Messi was needed. Messi suffered an elbow to the mouth during the first half of the game. Barcelona’s team of dentists and medics were on hand to give the star pitchside treatment for his injuries.

Messi was temporarily patched up by the team and returned to the pitch with gauze in his mouth. Inevitably Messi will have needed further treatment after the game. However, Barca’s dentists made the call that he was safe to continue playing after receiving the pitchside treatment. This, in turn, facilitated him being able to score the winning goal in the last seconds of the game.

Due to the skill, dedication, and professionalism of the dentists and medics at Barcelona the players are supported and treated to enable them to play their best possible football. It could be argued that without the dental intervention he received Barcelona may not have won the match. This just goes to show the important role dentists play within sport.

Inter Milan defender Maicon loses tooth


Inter defender loses tooth in Champions League semi-final.

Inter Milan defender Maicon lost a tooth in a challenge from Barcelona playmaker Lionel Messi when the two sides met on April 20th. 

Maicon was attempting to clear the ball from the penalty area but Messi jumped and did not see the Brazilian, catching him squarely on the jaw with his shoulder.

The resulting impact led to Maicon’s tooth being visibly ejected from his mouth.

Fortunately for the defender, his team won 3 – 1 on the night. However, it remains to be seen whether he will be fit for the second of leg of the Champions League semi-final at Camp Nou next week.

Elsewhere, Michael Thomas, from the Wessex Dental Specialist Centre, recently claimed that busy people should take the time to look after their teeth properly.

He argued that having the forethought to stay on top of dental health issues will help people avoid costly and painful emergency dentistry treatments.
