They can do a number on your health
Gapped, broken or cracked teeth come with additional concerns. Beyond the obvious- broken teeth pain – an untreated cracked or broken tooth can become infected. Left untreated the infection could spread to your face, head, neck and beyond.
A gap in your teeth can be difficult to keep clean, leading to decay. A gap in your teeth may also cause your remaining teeth to shift, altering your bite and, possibly, leading to painful TMJ symptoms.
If you have broken or cracked teeth and undergone a root canal, your tooth may have become more brittle. If wasn’t crowned properly, you may find yourself with a broken tooth root.
