If you have broken or cracked teeth you should see a dentist as soon as possible.
A broken or cracked tooth can cause significant pain and discomfort. You may not be able to chew your food will avoid certain foods, or eat on the opposite side where the damage tooth resides.
Broken or cracked teeth can lead to the nerve of the tooth being damaged. This may mean the need for further treatment to save the tooth. This should be done as soon as possible to prevent:
- bacteria entering the nerve of the tooth
- the tooth breaking further
- the tooth cutting your cheek or tongue
