Toothless Boxer – The Story of a Dental Implant

All around Coimbatore walked the feared ‘Tooth Boxer’. He was feared by all boxers, for, he was the fiercest boxer of all time – A living legend. He was known for knocking off the teeth of so many professional boxers, through a repertoire of hard blows and boxing expertise.  Though feared inside the ring, he was ridiculed outside. He was called names and laughed upon, every time he opens his mouth to speak. He lost one tooth in a historical bout with a Russian; a brawl that went on for nearly 4 hours with our Boxer emerging out as the winner. He might’ve won the fight, but his tooth didn’t. One blow knocked the tooth down, giving birth to the name – ‘The Toothless Boxer’.

“His legend spread far upto distant lands, so did the name that gave him so much of shame.”

The ridiculing didn’t stop, even after he challenged – rather threatened everyone that teased him to a fight. Running out of choices, he decided to live with the infamy – He accepted that he was a Toothless Boxer.

                Neither did Boxing leave him, nor did he want to leave boxing. He wanted to share his expertise in the sport with other deserving people. He wanted to start an academy that taught authentic boxing and boxing alone.

“But will people accept him as a teacher? Will people respect what he’s teaching and not ridicule him?”

“Enough is enough”, he thought. He decided to get this situation consulted by a Dentist. He visited Bellie Dental Clinic at R.S. Puram, and there, a suggestion to get Dental Implants was given.

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is used to support one or more false teeth. It is a titanium screw that can replace the root of a tooth when it fails. Just like a tooth root, it is placed into the jawbone. Dental Implants deal with the process of replacing the loss of both natural tooth and its root. 

                The boxer’s dilemma was clarified up to the roots. The boxer retained his status of being the “Tooth Boxer” as the fact that he was ‘Toothless’ for a while started diminishing. The boxer still kicked himself because, had he known that Bellie Dental Clinic has been rendering top-notch Dental Services of this calibre since the early ‘60s, he would’ve gotten fixed by then, without having to face many years of ridicule, and name-calling.
