A cracked, chipped or broken tooth, or teeth, can occur in many ways. You might have been chewing food, grinding your teeth at night, playing a recreational activity or any other activity, and your tooth was broken, chipped or fractured in some way. Often times this can be painful for the person with the injury and other times it might not, but it is extremely important to have the problem fixed immediately so more damage does not occur.
Teeth that have had the enamel split or broken off are prone to tooth decay and further wear and tear. If left untreated your injury can lead to a root canal and crown, or the loss of the tooth and a dental implant. The enamel found on the outermost layer of your teeth is an extremely hard material that your body creates to protect the dentin and root of your teeth.
