Why Do Teeth Break?
There may be a number of causes for your tooth cracking or breaking. Perhaps you bite down on some food and then “crack!” – you feel your tooth weaken. Maybe you’re playing a sport and someone elbows you in the mouth. The most common reason is due to tooth decay or perhaps a filling weakening a tooth. Whatever the reason, it is not a pleasant experience.
Types of Breaks
Sometimes you don’t even know the extent of the damage, whereas other times the pain is extreme. Common breaks include:
