Teeth although generally strong have the tendency to crack or chip as a result of impact, this is especially true for teeth along the front of the mouth.
A cracked or chipped tooth can also occur when teeth have been damaged by tooth decay and become more brittle. This type of damage to teeth can result in a broken tooth which can cause sensitivity and pain.
A broken or damaged tooth can happen due to a variety of reasons ranging from sports injuries to tooth decay. No matter what the cause if you have damage such as a cracked tooth or chipped tooth, it is important to get it checked by a dentist as soon as possible.
A cracked or broken tooth left untreated can lead to more severe problems like a fracture or splitting of the tooth, which can result in extreme sensitivity and pain.
