Who is at risk for a cracked tooth?


Preston Dental Saskatoon Dental Clinic Services

Some people are more susceptible than others to having a cracked tooth. Factors that are more likely to lead to a cracked tooth are:

  • Deep fillings that leave thin amounts of tooth structure.
  • Sports such as hockey, football and boxing that have a high risk of facial trauma.
  • People who grind their teeth or have strong chewing muscles.
  • People with destructive habits like chewing ice or opening things with their teeth.
