Dealing with cracked teeth … even one cracked tooth … can become a little emotionally overwhelming. Of course, our Riverside, CA team is here for everything you could possibly need in regard to this concern. First, we offer complete preventive care to help you maintain strong teeth that are less likely to break under pressure (in addition to helpful advice). Then, of course, we offer restorative care to help you fix damage, should it happen. For now, your Riverside dentist would like to get going with some of that advice that can help you avoid things you just might not see coming!

#1: That Elbow To The Face

We know that you aren’t always going to see an elbow heading straight at your face. Or someone swinging their arms around. Or anything else that typically comes from a moment in which you’re participating in sports and in just one split second, there’s serious contact between your face and something strong enough to cause damage. While your Riverside dentist always suggests wearing an athletic mouthguard to keep these things from happening, remember: Sometimes, things just happen. Fortunately, we can help you restore your smile, should you end up with a cracked tooth.

#2: That Seed In Your Bread, Seedless Fruit…

The only reason you end up with cracked teeth as the result of eating fruit or a piece of bread, which are both generally considered too soft to do any damage? There’s a seed you didn’t see heading your way. Maybe you had no idea there were seeds in the bread you were about to eat. Perhaps you were surprised by a seed in what you are certain was seedless fruit. It happens from time to time. Let us help you with restorative care!

#3: That Nut In The Chocolate

Read the ingredients. Ask questions if someone hands you chocolate. It takes just one hard nut that you don’t suspect to crack your tooth!

#4: That Pit In The Olive, Berry, Etc.

Again, your Riverside dentist reminds you that it takes just a tiny bit of detective work to determine before you bite whether there’s a pit in the food you’re about to consume and it can save you from a cracked tooth.
