Chipped And Cracked Teeth
Chipped and cracked teeth are dental problems that occur when a portion of the tooth breaks off, or a crack appears on its surface. These issues can range from minor cosmetic concerns to severe oral health problems. One of the most common causes of chipped and cracked teeth is trauma from accidents or injuries. Another cause of chipped and cracked teeth is tooth decay. Bruxism, or grinding your teeth while you sleep, is another potential cause of chipped and cracked teeth. Over time, this habit puts excess pressure on your teeth, which weakens their structure. Consuming hard foods like ice cubes or using your teeth as tools (e.g., opening bottles) can lead to chipping or cracking over time.
