Don’t Let Cracked Tooth Break You
At Battery Hill Dental, we’ve seen patients with different kinds of cracked teeth. Your local dentists here at Caloundra knows just how to handle this adverse, and even painful, situation.
Why do teeth get cracked?
While your teeth is one of the strongest tissues in the body, it can still get damaged in many ways, resulting to breaks and cracks. Whether it’s due to biting down on some hard food or getting injured in the mouth from a blow, a cracked tooth is not a good thing. In fact, it can even be unbearable painful. Therefore, early treatment is always a good idea.
These are tiny, shallow cracks on the surface of your tooth, or your enamel. While they don’t necessarily hurt, they may alter your tooth’s look and even lead to bigger breaks later on.
This is when the sharp and pointy chewing surface of your tooth, usually a molar, breaks off.
Split or broken tooth
This usually happens when the tooth breaks either horizontally and vertically. The break is distinct, but the tooth can be broken into two or more pieces.
This is the most painful kind of cracked tooth as the damage starts from the root and goes out towards the chewing or biting surface. This can cause bleeding and even infection on the bone and gums when left untreated.
