A Broken Tooth Can Be Unsafe
You may think a broken tooth can seem harmless, when in reality, it can actually be dangerous. If you ignore your broken tooth, it can lead to health and orthodontic issues.
Why You May Get A Broken Tooth
Even though your teeth are very strong, it is possible to break them. You can break your teeth because of a few different scenarios.
- Were you going to bite something and accidentally bite down to hard? Maybe it was a piece of meat that you did not realize had a bone in it. This has also happened with ice, apples, and other foods. If you bit down on something too quickly, the impact could break your tooth
- Did you get hit in your mouth? Getting hit in the mouth is what we see the most at Bruce Elkind’s Office. We have had patients that fell down, some patients have been in a car accidents and some have been in a fight. A hit to your teeth can cause them to break.
- Did you have a cavity? Your tooth enamel is not as strong when you have a cavity. As you tooth weakens because of your enamel is getting weaker, can cause the tooth to break.
- Do you have an old filling? This has happened at our office too. We try to get our patients to come in for regular check ups, but we also understand life sometimes gets in the way and before you know it, it has been 4 years since you been to the dentist. When your filling gets old, it does not cover your enamel. Having an old filling can cause your tooth to crack or break. Also be aware of materials that have been discontinued.
At Bruce Elkind’s Office, many of our patients rave about how pain-free our care is. That is one of our favorite compliments. There are many people out there that avoid going to the dentist because of painful memories. Our goal is to have those scared memories relaxed and have people enjoy coming to the dentist.
