Frequently Asked Questions About Chipped/Cracked Teeth
Sometimes the damage to a tooth is purely cosmetic. But it would still help to get a dentist’s opinion on that before you make any decisions. A chipped tooth can still be a risk of breaking further, it can also have sharp edges that are dangerous, and there are other potential complications. If after seeing a dentist, they confirm that the damage is truly only cosmetic, then it is your choice whether or not to have any changes made.
A tooth with a chip missing or a crack can lead to a future break. Cracks and fractures are susceptible to pressure. Any opening that allows bacteria to get into a tooth can lead to infection and eventually the roots becoming diseased. This might require a root canal in the future. If you have a chipped or cracked tooth you should see a dentist.
That can depend. If the person with the cracked tooth is experiencing any pain, it is most likely a dental emergency. Additionally if the dentin or pulp is exposed you should see a dentist right away. Even if the issue isn’t an emergency it shouldn’t go untreated. A quick dental visit in the next week or so can ensure there are no other issues or any treatment that is necessary gets done.
Chips, cracks, and breaks are often caused by pressure. Chewing on hard objects like a pen, ice, or biting your nails can weaken a tooth over time. Clenching your jaw or grinding your teeth can also lead to this problem. A mouthguard during sports and prevent injuries to your teeth. A grind guard while you are sleeping can prevent damage done by bruxism. And proper brushing and flossing can keep your teeth strong overall.
Depending on the damage done to your teeth, there are a variety of recommendations your dentist might have for a damaged tooth. For example, if a tooth is simply cracked they might recommend a veneer, but if the damage is severe they might recommend a crown or even tooth replacement options.
