POOR ORAL HYGIENE
Cracked and Chipped Teeth
Although the surface of teeth (enamel) is known to be quite strong, they can become weak over time as a result of dental decay (cavities), teeth grinding, general wear and even direct trauma. These problems lead to cracks and chips in teeth and can even lead to more serious dental conditions.
Causes of Cracked & Chipped Teeth:
The most common cause of cracked and chipped teeth is trauma – whether it be an unexpected fall or injury while playing sport, direct trauma to the teeth can not only cause damage such as a chip or crack but also be the cause of a severe toothache and pain.
