Broken and Cracked Teeth
Causes of Broken and Cracked Teeth
However, improper dental care, internal health issues, or vitamin deficiencies can create brittle teeth that are vulnerable to injury or fracturing. Your teeth become more fragile and brittle if you have weak dentin (the layer below the enamel), genetic disorders, kidney disease, osteoperosis, increased age, and periodontal diseases.
If you do not become aware of your teeth’s fragility right away, you risk doing major damage to your smile. It is crucial that you discuss any notcable fragility or health concerns with your doctor as well as your dentist.
Fixes for Broken and Cracked Teeth
We can help prevent the symptoms of your health problems from worsening your oral conditions and fragility. We can help prevent further deterioration, improve the strength of the enamel and dentin, as well as create crowns or bridges to fix the appearance of fragile or broken teeth.
Depending on the severity, it is sometimes recommended to extract the tooth or teeth all together and do a dental implant or dentures. This is a permanent solution that is frequently used in severe cases (dead tooth, too much nerve damage, insurance issues, etc.)
