Teeth are remarkably strong, but they can chip, crack (fracture) or break. If you have a chipped tooth, you might not feel any tooth pain unless the chip is large enough to expose the nerves in the inner layer of the tooth.
Falls or car accidents.
Biting down on hard substances, like ice or hard.
Playing contact sports without a mouth guard.
Grinding teeth when you sleep.
Having cavities that weakens the tooth.
…….When fortune turns against you,, even jelly breaks your teeth…….!!
Irritation of the gum around the chipped tooth
Feeling a jagged surface when you run your tongue over your teeth
Irritation of your tongue from ‘catching’ it on the tooth’s uneven and rough edge
Pain from pressure on the tooth when biting, which can be intense if the chip is near to or exposes the nerves of the tooth
If the chip in your tooth is very small, your dentist might simply smooth and polish the chipped tooth and no additional treatment will be needed.
If your chipped tooth involves minor damage to the tooth enamel, your dentist will repair the damage with a filling. If the repair is to a front tooth or can be seen when you smile, your dentist will use a procedure called bonding, which uses a tooth color composite to restore its normal appearance and function and to protect the inner layers of the teeth from irritation and infection.
If your chipped tooth is large enough to expose the tooth nerve, you will likely need a root canal to remove the damaged nerve, plus crown or cap to replace the chipped tooth.
