A crack on your tooth may begin as a tiny fissure that grows bigger and downwards with repeated stress. Most people are unaware of the problem until they feel some pain and discomfort.

  • 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.
