When a U.S. Olympic archer who uses his mouth to hold his bow back fractured one of his front teeth and needed care so he could compete in the Rio Olympics, a volunteer dentist from the Academy for Sports Dentistry (ASD) stepped in to help.

Many athletes who compete in the Olympics have significant dental problems, according to Pennsylvania dentist Richard Knowlton, DMD, who heads the ASD’s effort to provide free dental care for U.S. athletes. Dr. Knowlton provided free dental care to the members of the U.S. women’s field hockey team before they left for Rio.

“I never really dreamed I’d have the opportunity to be involved on the Olympic level,” Dr. Knowlton told DrBicuspid.com. “Even 1/100th of a second can make a difference between whether you’re on the podium or not. If you’re fighting significant gum disease or infections, it’s like competing with a cold.”
