Do Not Ignore A Cracked Tooth

One of the most common dental emergencies we see in our office is a cracked tooth. One of the easiest ways to prevent a cracked tooth is to maintain your routine hygiene examination appointments. During these visits, we inspect your teeth for signs of extreme wear and cracks. When teeth are extremely worn, such as from grinding, it can lead to the teeth cracking from the extreme pressure. It is important to have a cracked tooth treated as soon as possible.
