Tooth Cracks and Chips

With busy and active lifestyles, and families who are involved in a lot of sports and activities, accidents are more likely to happen. If you play rough, you’re more likely to encounter dental emergencies. This may include tooth cracks and chips.


Complications of tooth cracks and chips

There are other ways to chip or crack your tooth aside from dental injury or dental truama. If you often grind your teeth and you don’t wear a mouthguard to treat it, you may be susceptible to teeth fractures.

There’s always the possibility with a tooth fracture or chip that the pulp in the centre of the tooth will be exposed. This may make it susceptible to damage and infection (if it is not already damaged). The infection itself can be very serious if left untreated. Superficial tooth chips, meanwhile, are less serious, but can interfere with self-confidence in your smile. In turn, symptoms for tooth cracks include pain while biting and exaggerated pain when opening your mouth.

Treatments

Some teeth chips and cracks might only need fillings to look and function normally again. The more serious teeth injuries (like fractures and splitting) may require root canals. Teeth that are cracked all the way to the root may need both a root canal and a crown to restore function.
