Cracked Tooth - What it is


With increasing life expectancy, dental awareness and knowledge, people are keeping their teeth much longer. This exposes teeth to more years of crack-inducing habits such as chewing on hard food and parafunctional habits like grinding or bruxism. These habits make teeth more prone to cracks.

What are the types of cracks?

Teeth can crack in several different ways. Cracks may affect the crown, root or both parts of the tooth.
