Chipped Teeth

There are a number of things that can cause teeth to become chipped: for example, biting down on food that’s too hard or injuring your mouth during a fall. Taking proper care of your oral health and wearing a mouthguard during contact sports are two of the best ways to prevent chipping. Because certain factors can increase a person’s risk of chipping their teeth, it’s crucial to see a dentist if your tooth enamel has weakened due to:

  • Tooth decay
  • Teeth grinding
  • A highly acidic diet
  • Frequent acid reflux
  • Advanced age

In addition to these factors, an unforeseen accident is difficult to prevent and, in many cases, an accident is what leads to impact-induced chipping.

Identifying a Chipped Tooth

If you can’t see whether your tooth is chipped, you may feel a jagged edge along the suspected tooth when running your tongue over its surface. You may also experience pain when biting down, and you may notice that the gum around your possibly-chipped tooth is tender or inflamed.
