There is one word for summer in Alabama—hot! People will do just about anything to cool off during hot summer days. One method that always brings patients running to our office is chewing on ice. What might seem like a harmless way to cool down can wreak havoc on teeth. Chewing on ice, or any hard substance for that matter, is one of the leading ways to crack your teeth. While the enamel on the outside of your teeth is the strongest substance in the body, it isn’t indestructible. If you realize you have cracked a tooth, it is important to contact us at Parkside Dental Care immediately.
At Parkside Dental Care, we are passionate about helping our patients have a functioning and beautiful smile that they can enjoy for many years, if not their entire lives. While it is always the ultimate goal to have healthy teeth that will last a lifetime, unfortunately, due to a variety of reasons, that is not always the case. Recurring decay, gum disease, side effects from illness and medication, and trauma to the mouth can all be reasons we may recommend a restorative dentistry treatment.
Given all the work that our teeth do for us, it’s no wonder that they can get worn down or incur tooth decay, cracks and other kinds of damage. The good news, however, is that there is one dental treatment that can treat these various dental issues and restore the function and appearance of teeth that have seen better days.
