Broken Teeth

Human teeth are made up of four primary tissues; enamel, dentin, cementum, and tooth pulp.

Enamel, which forms the visible outer layer of the tooth, is the hardest substance in the human body. Despite this fact, broken teeth, teeth fracture, chipped teeth are not uncommon phenomena.

A broken tooth can range from minor chips to complete fracture of the teeth. It can be a very stressful and painful condition if the nerve roots are affected in any way.

Tooth nerve pain is one of the worst kinds of pain you’ll ever encounter.

What Are The Causes Of A Cracked Tooth Or Broken Tooth?

There is a bounty of conditions that can lead to a cracked tooth with dental trauma being the most common cause.

Other common broken teeth causes include:

  • Chewing hard substances.
  • Facial trauma.
  • Chronic tooth decay makes the tooth fragile and brittle and hence can easily lead to chips or breaks, even fracture.
  • Old amalgam fillings, which make the teeth brittle after a long duration of use.
