Broken teeth or cracked teeth can turn out to be quite a nuisance if left untreated. One of the worst things about a damaged tooth is the pain slowly keeps on increasing and before you know it, it will become unbearable. If you are not too keen on taking care of your broken or cracked tooth immediately, there is a chance you will regret this decision a few months down the line. While a broken tooth can also be embarrassing in public, a cracked tooth can cause immense pain through the vein in the roots of the tooth. You should play it smart and get the tooth treated right away.
Breeding Ground For Bacteria
When you chip or crack a tooth, it becomes more prone to bacteria. No matter how well you clean your teeth, these cracks and chips become an ideal place for bacteria to grow and this makes it tough to avoid dental problems. A chipped or cracked tooth will begin decaying very fast. While it may not hurt right now, this small chip in your tooth or crack could eventually lead to a major dental problem or periodontal disease which is very tough to treat.
Cavities Will Set In & Tooth Will Decay
When you leave cracked or broken teeth untreated, there is a very good chance that cavities will set in. Cavities can be unbearable and once they set in, the procedure to get that treated is even more exhaustive. You should avoid these problems and work towards getting your cracked teeth repaired.
