Common Causes of Chipped
or Broken Teeth

Chipped or broken teeth can be brought about by many different factors.
Some of the most common include


A fall, a blow to the face, sports injury, or other accidents can cause your teeth to chip or break due to heavy forces.

Teeth Grinding

This habit can put much stress on your teeth and eventually lead to chips or fractures.

Biting or Chewing on Hard Objects

Doing this can put too much pressure on your teeth and cause them to break.


When cavities become large, they can weaken the tooth and make it more susceptible to breaking.

Frequently Asked Questions About Chipped or Broken Teeth

Here are some signs that you may have chipped or broken your teeth:

  • Pain when chewing or biting
  • Tooth sensitivity to hot, cold and sweet foods and drinks
  • Visible cracks or chips in the tooth
  • Sharp edges on the tooth
  • Pain that comes and then disappears

Here are some ways to manage chipped or broken teeth on your own at home:

  • Use over-the-counter pain medication to relieve any pain or discomfort.
  • Apply pressure with cotton or a clean cloth to the area if there is bleeding.
  • Rinse with warm water to keep the area clean.
  • Refrain from chewing hard foods on the side of your mouth with the affected tooth.
  • Continue to brush twice daily and floss regularly, but with care.
  • Contact your dentist immediately for professional advice and to schedule an appointment.

Aside from making you feel self-conscious about your smile, leaving chipped or broken teeth unmanaged can cause more serious problems. When you chip or break your teeth, they are exposed to bacteria and chewing forces. This can make them susceptible to tooth decay and infection, which can harm the vitality of your teeth.

They can also be prone to further damage if the tooth structure is not strong enough. Eventually, this can cause tooth loss and the need for more extensive dental treatment.

Here are some tips to help prevent chipping or breaking your teeth:

  • Wear a mouth guard when playing sports or for teeth-grinding habits.
  • Do not use your teeth as tools.
  • Avoid biting on or chewing on hard foods and objects.
  • Continue to practise good oral hygiene habits, including brushing and flossing regularly.
  • Visit your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings.
