    Consult the Dentist If You Have a Cracked Tooth

    teeth health smile dentistA good number of people with a cracked tooth will wait until it is too late before seeing a dentist. By that time, the crack may have advanced into the pulp and downwards into the root.

    Key takeaways:

    – Small cracks can become large cracks within no time meaning that you should seek dental treatment at the earliest possible moment.

    – Early diagnosis and treatment of cracked teeth will prevent spreading of the crack and adverse outcomes.

    – People can cut the risk of cracked teeth by avoiding chewing on hard things, clenching or grinding, and wearing a mouth guard when playing sport.

    One major contributor to the observed uptick in cracked teeth cases is the increasing lifespan of the American population, which according to numbers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has reached 78.8 years.
