Ouch! No dental patient wants the pain and inconvenience of a cracked tooth. At The Richardson Dentist, we are committed helping you avoid this preventable problem. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:
Steer clear of chewing on hard things if you don’t want a cracked tooth! This includes ice, hard candy, and popcorn.
Protect your mouth against impact and injuries while playing sports. You can find one-size-fits-all athletic mouth guards at sporting goods store or have one custom-made.
Tooth grinding can lead to a cracked tooth, jaw pain, and other issues. Talk to your dentist, doctor, or physical therapist and try some stress reduction techniques to keep your jaw nice and relaxed.
Be sure to keep your regular check-ups with Dr. Goad and our expert staff. They can spot possible problems that could cause a cracked tooth, such as uneven or brittle teeth. If you have a cracked tooth, you’ll want to explore some cosmetic dentistry procedures to fix any visible damage such as veneers, a porcelain crown, or a dental implant.
If you are in need of dental care or have questions about broken teeth or smile makeovers, please give us a call at 972-690-6653.
