What Can Cause a Cracked Tooth?

19th June 2018

A cracked tooth is a common dental problem that can easily be fixed:

– Cracked teeth tend to result from injury, biting food too hard, or teeth grinding.

– Symptoms include pain or sensitivity when eating.

– Most cracked teeth can be restored with plastic resin, fillings, crowns or root canal filling.

– If the crack was caused by teeth grinding a mouth-guard can be provided to prevent future damage.

“A cracked tooth will not necessarily cause any symptoms. People often have cracked teeth without even realising it.”
