Cracked & Chipped Tooth
Cracked & Chipped Tooth Treatment
Teeth are generally very strong but may weaken over time due to cavities, large fillings, repetitive chewing, grinding or direct trauma. This can lead to the development of cracks and chips which result in a weaker tooth with poorer long-term prognosis. For example, if severe enough, these teeth can also fracture, develop sensitivity and pain.
If a cracked tooth is ignored over time it can result in tooth fracture, splitting, sensitivity, pain, and infection. This can be extremely painful and cause a severe toothache which may require extraction or root canal treatment to save the tooth.
