The NFL may not be known for its high-end medical care, but Dr. Tyler Tyson is here to tell you about the perks of going to a dentist.
Tyson, a dentist at Dr. Tyson’s in New York, explains that the NFL is one of the few leagues that allows players to get the best dental care available.
He also says it’s not a bad thing that the league does that because, like most sports, it has a “big impact on our lives.”
“There are a lot of players that have to play in the league, there are a whole lot of teams,” Tyson said.
“It’s a very big, very physical game, and it has to be.”
You see, players have to work harder than most people in their daily lives.
Tyson says that players have a greater physical impact on the health of their bodies because they have to take on more of the physical workload.
So, he’s got players doing more and more work.
Tyson adds that the more physical work they do, the more of that body weight they have on them, which is a great way to protect themselves from infection.
“And the more work that they do the more likely they are to get an infection,” Tyson explained.
“So you need to put more of yourself out there.”
Tyson says if you can’t afford to go to a dental appointment, you can find a local dentist, but it’s best to go somewhere where you can get a professional appointment.
“We have some guys that are in our office that have no dental coverage at all, so if we can get one, we’re good,” Tyson added.
“If we can’t get one then we’re pretty much screwed.”
Tyson also said that he thinks the NFL should be more transparent about how much of a dentist they are, because, “There’s a lot more than a doctor and a dentist can provide.”
The NFL is also a great place to visit because of the number of dental teams and facilities.
Tyson said he knows about a couple teams and he says they’re very professional and have a great staff.
“The NFL has a great reputation,” Tyson concluded.
“I think it’s a good idea to have a good dental experience.”
