Should I Call My Dentist If I Crack My Tooth?

Nova Dental is a warm, inviting dentist facility in Newark, NJ. Dr. Bhavneet Singh, DDS, is a trusted dentist who practices adults and kids’ dentistry, along with Dr. Elif Devrim, DDS

There are many reasons why your tooth may crack, including a blow to the mouth, pressure from teeth grinding, or biting into hard foods. No matter how the crack develops, it is important to visit a dentist as soon as possible, since a cracked tooth could be a dental emergency, meaning treatment is needed to avoid further damage. Luckily, our dentists at Nova Dental are always available when you need them the most, with availability on weekends and holidays.

It is important to see a dentist after cracking your tooth because you may experience symptoms and discomfort that can be treated with proper dental care. For example, cracked teeth may cause pain when chewing, sensitivity to extreme temperatures, or swelling around the tooth. Additionally, leaving cracked teeth untreated can lead to dental infections, or abscesses, that could potentially spread to your bones and gums. Thus, contacting our office for professional care is essential, allowing our dentists to evaluate your needs and provide the best treatment for you.

While you are waiting for your appointment, we recommend gently rinsing your mouth with warm water and applying a cold compress to the outside of your face, since this will reduce swelling. You can also take over the counter pain medicine in recommended dosage to manage any pain you may be experiencing, or see a healthcare provider if urgent.
