Cracked Tooth – Frequently Asked Questions

A cracked tooth is a complete or partial fracture of the tooth structure.

Factors that are more likely to lead to a cracked tooth are:
  • Deep fillings that leave thin amounts of tooth structure
  • Sports such as hockey, football and boxing that have a high risk of facial trauma
  • People who grind their teeth or have strong chewing muscles
  • People with destructive habits like chewing ice or opening things with their teeth

Here are some things that may be recommended:
  • Have crowns placed to cover weak cusps of teeth
  • Have your bite adjusted by your dentist
  • Have old silver fillings replaced
  • Do not chew ice or use teeth to open things
  • Wear a night time grinding appliance
  • Wear a sports guard

Sometimes the tooth may crack completely in half, at which point it must be extracted. Other times the crack goes into the nerve and a root canal treatment may be necessary to save the tooth.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row]
