How To Avoid A Cracked Tooth In North Dallas

January 16, 2015

Lake Highlands cosmetic dental and adult braces

Ouch! No Garland dental patient wants the pain and inconvenience of a cracked tooth, so today in the Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry dental blog we are going to focus on how to avoid this preventable problem.

The first thing to remember is that avoiding a cracked tooth is not rocket science; you should steer clear of chewing on hard things if you don’t want a cracked tooth! This includes ice, hard candy, and (sorry Lake Highlands cinephiles) popcorn.

Also, protect against any impact to the mouth that could be experienced during sporting events. If you are a member of a local Lake Highlands or North Dallas rec center basketball, ultimate frisbee, or flag football league, pick up a mouth guard at a Garland area sporting goods store.

Tooth grinding is never a good thing, and it can even lead to a cracked tooth or temporomandibular conditions. Talk to your dentist, doctor, or physical therapist and try some stress reduction techniques to keep your jaw nice and relaxed.

Be sure to keep your regular check-ups with your Lake Highlands dentist because your dentist can spot possible problems that could predispose you to a cracked tooth such as an uneven chewing surface or brittle teeth.

If you have a cracked tooth, you’ll want to pursue the correct course of treatment and, if needed, explore some cosmetic dentistry procedures to fix any visible damage such as veneers, a porcelain crown, or a dental implant.
