teeth, health, smile, dentistIf a cracked tooth is spotted early enough the tooth can be saved, rather than having to be extracted.

Key takeaways:

– Cracked teeth can be avoided by avoiding teeth grinding, wearing a mouth-guard for contact sports and not chewing hard items such as ice

– If you think you might have cracked a tooth see your dentist as soon as possible
