PREVENTING CRACKED TOOTH FROM CRACKING

Source: DaveHall

What can I do to prevent my teeth from cracking?

While cracked teeth are not completely preventable, you can take some steps to make your teeth less susceptible to cracks.

  • Don't chew on hard objects such as ice, unpopped popcorn kernels or pens.

  • Don't clench or grind your teeth.

  • If you clench or grind your teeth while you sleep, talk to your dentist about getting a retainer or other mouthguard to protect your teeth.

  • Wear a mouthguard or a mask when playing contact sports.
