Unlike tooth decay and cavities, fractures can occur in a split second and cause a lot of pain. With this in mind, here are the symptoms you should watch out for as well as the treatments you can use.
- Biting hard foods, trauma to your mouth, and grinding your teeth can cause tooth fractures.
- Symptoms of a cracked tooth include sensitivity, pain and tender gums around the affected area.
- Your dentist can use dental bonding and dental crowns to fix a broken tooth.
Talk to your dentist if you’re experiencing any symptoms of a cracked tooth.
