Solutions for Cracked Enamel or Chipped Teeth

dca-blog_chipped-tooth-sad-illustration

Tooth enamel is tougher than human bone, but unlike bone, it can’t heal itself. Cracks, chips, and fractures can develop over time, or occur suddenly after chewing a hard food or receiving a direct impact. Teeth grinding or clenching can also contribute to the wear and tear that may eventually lead to damaged tooth enamel. If left untreated, fractures can become more serious and ultimately result in tooth loss. Even with appropriate care, some cracks may get worse over time. If you have a cracked or chipped tooth, or you’re experiencing unusual symptoms, see an affordable dentist for treatment as soon as possible.

Cracked or Chipped Teeth Symptoms

Cracked or chipped teeth hurt when you chew, causing movement and irritation of the tooth’s pulp, which contains its nerves and blood vessels. Eventually, infection of the tooth and surrounding gums may occur.

Following are four common symptoms of cracked or fractured teeth.

  1. Pain when teeth are exposed to extreme hot or cold
  2. Tooth pain that comes and goes unpredictably
  3. Pain when chewing or relieving biting pressure
  4. Visible cracked or chipped teeth, or irregular areas felt by the tongue

Avoiding Chipped Teeth

While you can take steps to minimize your risk, cracked and chipped teeth aren’t completely preventable. You must avoid chewing hard foods like popcorn kernels and ice. Never bite non-food objects such as bottle caps or pens. Always wear a mouth guard during sports activities, and seek treatment for nighttime tooth grinding. And, be sure to establish a relationship with an affordable dentist in Stockbridge, so you’ll have access to care if a dental emergency occurs.
