A cracked or chipped tooth can result from chewing hard foods such as ice or nuts, grinding your teeth at night, trauma or injury to the teeth or a natural phenomenon as you age. Symptoms of cracked or chipped teeth include pain when chewing or biting, sensitivity to hot, cold or sweet foods, sudden sharp pain, or swelling of the gums. It’s important that you visit a dentist as soon as you notice or suspect your tooth is cracked to prevent further damage. Our dental professionals at McKinnon Dental Care have sound knowledge on cracked tooth and can help alleviate your symptoms and treat the affected tooth while also taking into aesthetic considerations.
You can also talk to our dentists about preventative measures to avoid cracked and chipped teeth in the future. Custom mouthguards for high-contact sports are also available to help safeguard your smile.
