Protect Teeth From Cracks

Prestonwood cosmetic dental and adult braces

Ouch! No one wants the pain and inconvenience of cracked teeth, so in this post from Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in North Dallas we are going to focus on how to avoid this problem.

The first thing to remember is that avoiding a cracked tooth is not rocket science. You should steer clear of chewing on hard things if you don’t want a cracked tooth! This includes ice, hard candy, and (sorry movie lovers) popcorn.

Also, protect against any impact to the mouth that could be experienced during sporting events. If you are a member of a local Richardson or Plano rec center basketball, ultimate frisbee, or flag football league, pick up a mouth guard at a North Dallas area sporting goods store.

Tooth grinding is never a good thing, and it can even lead to cracked teeth or temporomandibular conditions. 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, because we can spot possible problems that could predispose you to a cracked tooth such as an uneven chewing surface or brittle teeth.

If, in spite of everything, you crack a tooth, rest assured that it is an addressable issue. Restorative dentistry from Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry can correct cracked teeth. We also offer a full range of general dentistry services. Make an appointment today!
