Almost invisible cracks can appear in our teeth, causing discomfort and potentially further damage.
Some cracks that appear in our teeth are visible, but this is not always the case. Although we might be tempted to ignore even the more visible cracks, except for when they lead to obvious damage such as breakage, this is inadvisable.
Cracks in the teeth, however, do not always appear so obviously to the naked eye, and some may be so small that, even upon close inspection, they can be difficult to detect.
Whilst you may not be able to see these cracks, you may well notice their effects. If you notice a change in any of your teeth, whether in their appearance or the way that they feel, it is advisable to see one of our Clapham dentists as soon as possible to get them checked out.
Minor crack issues
Although aesthetics may not be an issue when you suffer from a tiny crack in a tooth, you may experience some additional sensitivity, especially when eating or drinking hot or cold products. Some discomfort may also be felt when eating and you should have this checked as soon as you can. Whilst sensitivity can be caused by other problems such as enamel erosion, all dental issues that cause unwanted results should be investigated.
