Have you ever had an adrenaline rush take over your body from a high-intensity athletic event? Dennis Schroder, the Atlanta, Georgia Hawks point guard from the NBA definitely has. But at this point in his career, you would think this rush exciting rush would be almost normal by now.
Apparently, it was still evident since the point guard completely ignored the fact that he lost a tooth during a game against the Trail Blazers. After running full force into a Blazer defender’s knee, Schroder’s tooth projected forward. He simply jogged over and stuck the lost tooth in his sock to be attended to after the game was over.
Some may say, “Well the show must go on,” but that careless action could have cost Schroder the health and aesthetics of his smile. Instead, your dentist is here to explain how you should properly handle a knocked out tooth.
