The teeth are made to be remarkably strong, but there are instances when you cannot prevent them from cracking, breaking down or chipping. There are several reasons why your teeth may chip or get broken. Some of them are the following:
- Biting something hard
- Getting hit either on the mouth or face
- Accidental falls
- Buildup of cavities that tend to weaken your teeth
- Wearing old and large amalgam fillings that do not provide adequate support to the remaining enamel
While a chipped or broken tooth does not cause pain in most cases, your tongue will still feel the sharp edge or area, thereby causing discomfort.
