Dr Dental Dental Insurance on Chipped and or Cracked Teeth

12/18/23 1:55 PM

How do you tell if a tooth is chipped or cracked? The most common chipped or cracked tooth warning signs include erratic chewing pain. Pain with the release of biting pressure. Sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures.

To reduce your risk of chipping or cracking your teeth, you want to avoid munching on ice or hard candies, grinding or clenching teeth, and using your teeth as tools to hold or open items. Even exposing teeth to heat and cold can lead to chips, cracks, and breaks in your teeth. Tiny chips or cracks may not be a bother. But anything more could lead to pain or permanent tooth damage.

If you chip or crack your tooth, you’ll want to schedule a dental appointment with a local dentist as soon as possible. While waiting for your dental appointment, you may take pain-relieving medication to help with discomfort. You can also rinse your mouth with salt water to help eliminate infection-causing bacteria.
