Ouch! Artest Loses Tooth in Practice
Written by Ryan Yamamoto, Sports Anchor/Reporter

A rough open to the new season continued for forward Ron Artest Thursday when the Kings' suspended star lost a tooth in a collision during practice.

At the end of practice during routine scrimmaging, Artest ran into either Darryl Watkins or John Salmons, then bent over in pain. When he sat down under the basket, teammates flocked around to check out the gap where Artest's top front left tooth used to be.

"That could have happened anytime," Kings head coach Reggie Theus said. Theus said Artest's tooth was already loose and he had missed a dentist appointment Wednesday to get the tooth fixed.

The mishap didn't faze Artest. After a brief rest, he jumped back in and continued to practice.

"You know how tough Ron is," Theus said.

Artest is serving a seven-game suspension following a misdemeanor domestic violence charge earlier this year. Artest is eligible to return to the team next Wednesday against Minnesota.

Damn...

His gap is still smaller than Strahan's.

Yo I had my front joint knocked loose twice in a week. It was the worse feeling I ever had. They literally jammed my tooth back in the socket.... feel bad for his tooth.

Thank god that has never happened to me. I'm sure a few visits to the dentist and he will get that gap filled up. As ironic as this may sound, but for the mean time. He will look like a hockey player.

At least his was a clean break.
I had my front tooth broken and pushed up at near 90 degree angle. And to make it worse I had it happen at night and had to wait to the morning till the dentist broke it off and then tore away the rest of it and the root.

I've had it happen to my permanent twice. The process of replacing it and getting a new one is a @#%$ and expensive, and even worse the 2nd time. Assuming it's his first time, he'll just have to get a root canal where they'll pull the root down some to fill in the bone space and then put a titanium rod on to which a crown will be cemented. Or they might do a bridge where they file down the adjacent teeth on each side and make a piece of all of them that covers across the gap.

That tooth was knocked out in a game last year. I remember watching the game and he was literally moving his front tooth back and forth. He needs to hurry up and get off that suspension.
