P.J. Tucker managed to both draw a personal foul on Jusuf Nurkić and commit a technical on him as the Blazers big man had two teeth knocked out by the Raptors swingman—teeth Nurkić had to later hand over to the team trainer:
Let’s say you’ve already upgraded to a good toothbrush; what’s the next step for cleaner teeth? Judging by the user reviews, this 20-count box of Crest 3D Whitestrips is a great place to start. As an added bonus, you’ll even get a pair of express one-hour treatments, so you can see some improvement in time for holiday…
Hockey players tend to be dentally challenged, but goalies usually manage to retain most of their chompers. Not so much with Ben Bishop. The Tampa Bay Lightning goalie took a Peter Holland zinger to the face and lost his two front teeth this evening despite having a mask for protection.
Is there anyone more reliably smug than a person who actually flosses the recommended amount? Somehow, routinely dredging up unidentifiable morsels of past meals from between their teeth gives people a sense of self-righteousness that they feel find about lording over the rest of us more casual,…
The Heat and Pistons are scuffling for playoff positioning today. Detroit guard Spencer Dinwiddie got a little too excited to defend Goran Dragic and went and knocked his dang tooth out.
Wolfsburg left it all on the field yesterday to secure their commanding 2-0 advantage over Real Madrid in the Champions League, including the blood, sweat, tears, and incisor of full back Vieirinha:
Atlanta Hawks guard Dennis Schröder was down a veneer after he ran into the knee of the Trail Blazers’ Meyers Leonard in Monday night’s game. Schröder made sure that he didn’t misplace the departed piece of his tooth by putting it in his sock.
Blues winger Ryan Reaves performed a little dental self-surgery on the bench last night, pulling out a loosened tooth after getting mushed into the glass by Brent Seabrook. After he finished his shift, of course.
There are no classrooms that teach you basic hygiene growing up. Your parents may do what they can, but a surprising number of people make it to adulthood with gaps in their knowledge. We're here to help fill those gaps.
I don't totally understand why gamers seem to be so into filming themselves while they play video games these days, but after coming across this wonderful moment in human history, I am very glad that they do so.
Here's a great and gross story about NHL dentists, and oh my god what's that thing lodged in Ryan Callahan's jawbone?
You should probably go ahead and not watch this if you're squeamish. Yes, the tooth was part of a bridge, so the pain might have been minimal, but self-dentistry is never pleasant.
We all kind of cringed/wretched a little bit when Islanders captain John Tavares yanked out one his front teeth right there on the bench a few weeks ago. So (ugh) let's re-live (gulp) it by checking out (covers eyes) what his mouth looks like now (runs away from computer).
Seattle wide receiver Doug Baldwin didn't play in the Seahawks' week three win over the Packers—you know the one—because of what was generally described as a "shoulder injury." The Seahawks listed Baldwin as "questionable" as late as game day. That's the injury Baldwin almost played with over there, tweeted out by…
Yesterday's Ryder Cup meltdown at Medinah—already the fodder for Taiwanese animation mockery—prompted rowdy European fans to go crazy in their celebration of what the British press is already calling one of the great sports comebacks in history. We don't blame the Euros for getting excited, but we do hope this man…
My kid lost her first tooth a while back. The tooth was a stubborn little bastard, sitting there wiggling for weeks before finally breaking away from her gums and dangling there by a small thread of connective tissue. My kid refused to give the tooth one final yank to get it out, which drove me nuts. All I wanted to…
Ronald Nored's injury history is lengthy and painful-sounding: a busted knee, concussions, lacerations. The Butler guard has played through nearly all these injuries, his durability adding to his legend as a shutdown defensive player.

Rick Reilly, Aug. 30: "Peyton Manning will keep his streak alive. If you think he's going to miss a start because of a neck problem, you've been chugging paint thinner. This guy hasn't missed a start since 1994 at Tennessee. Do you know how long ago it was when Manning didn't start for the Colts? Google was two days…
