Cracked teeth can usually be fixed by a dentist. Cracked teeth tend to result from injury, biting food too hard, or teeth grinding. Symptoms include pain or sensitivity when eating.
In summary:
– The sooner you see your dentist, the more likely your cracked tooth can be saved; if left untreated, it can become infected.
– Cracked teeth can be treated in numerous ways, including fixing minor cracks with plastic resin, fillings or crowns and root canal fillings for more severe cracks.
– Cracked teeth can be prevented by wearing a mouth-guard to protect teeth and avoiding biting hard on certain foods.
“Anyone who suspects that they have a cracked tooth should make an appointment with the dentist as soon as possible.”
