Broken and Chipped Teeth

Teeth are one of the strongest parts of our body, but it can chip and break for various reasons. The broken and chipped teeth might not cause immediate pain, but it can lead to several oral problems in the future. Some of the common causes behind these teeth issues are:

  • If you bite on something hard.
  • Sudden blow on the face.
  • Playing contact and adventurous sports.
  • Cavities can make the tooth brittle and prone to breakage.
  • Like large amalgam fillings, older tooth treatments can make the remaining part of your teeth brittle over time.

If your chewing is uncomfortable or sensitive to hot and cold drinks, it is a good idea to contact your dentist irrespective of whether you experience pain. They will thoroughly check your oral health and take the necessary steps to treat and prevent the disease from further spread.

Broken and chipped teeth might not always hurt you, but that does not mean you should ignore it. Your dentist can repair minor cracks using fillings and smoothing the edges so that your lips or tongue does not get cut. Major teeth fractures might be caused due to tooth cavities, and it requires complex treatments. If you do not address these issues on time, it can severely affect your overall oral health, and then the only option left will be tooth extraction.
