Cracked tooth West Palm Beach,FL    Cracked Tooth Syndrome

Most people don`t know that worn down teeth, chipped teeth, or broken teeth are usually a sign for functional teeth problem.

While a chipped tooth or a broken tooth can be caused by injury,neglect or decay  teeth that break over and over  even after dental treatment is completed are commonly due to an undiagnosed dental condition. Teeth that are not in proper alignment are more likely to break, chip and wear.

Chronically Broken Teeth

If you have broken teeth or teeth that break over and over, even after treatment from a dentist, you may have a functional problem that needs to be addressed. Most of the  times, broken teeth are caused by problems in the temporomandibular joints, or TMJ. It is possible to experience no other signs or symptoms of TMJ dysfunction aside from the worn or broken teeth.

Ideally, all of your teeth should make contact at the same time and with the same force as you bite or chew. In cases of TMJ dysfunction, improper alignment of the jaw joints or teeth cause teeth to make contact out of alignment with others, causing premature wear and broken teeth.

If you have a single chipped tooth or cracked tooth caused by an injury or accident, we offer several quick treatment options. Our goal is to repair your chipped or cracked tooth as quickly as possible with the least amount of dentistry.
