- Bobby Clarke
If there’s one face that represented hockey in the 1970s, it was Bobby Clarke. His toothless grin was on full display when the Philadelphia Flyers won back-to-back Stanley Cups in ’73-74 and ’74-75. Bobby’s on-ice aggression led to many scraps—and tooth loss. Bobby is missing his 4 front teeth and now wears a partial denture to fill in his trademark gap.
- Wayne Gretzky
- Sidney Crosby
Sidney has been the heart of the Pittsburgh Penguins since he was drafted in 2005. Known as the quintessential team player, it was a shock when he was struck in the face by a teammate’s slap shot during a game against the New York Islanders in 2013. After the pain from the blow wore off, Crosby needed immediate dentures. He was missing 10 teeth and suffered a fractured lower jaw. He now wears implant-supported dentures.
