Fractured Teeth

Fractured Teeth Symptoms and Causes

Fractured teeth can be caused by injuries or by fracture-inducing habits such as clenching, grinding and chewing hard things such as ice. Fractured teeth can be painful or not cause symptoms. Treatment for a fractured tooth depends on the severity of the fracture.

Teeth Fractured Symptoms:

Commonly, the first indicator of a fractured tooth is a sharp pain that occurs during biting or chewing. Pain may also occur when eating or drinking something hot or cold.

Teeth Fractured Causes:

A tooth can fracture because of an injury to the mouth. However, it can also happen over time due to a variety of bad habits such as chewing ice, grinding teeth, or jaw clenching.
