Tooth enamel may be the hardest tissue in the body, but it, too, is vulnerable to extreme pressure. If your teeth are hit hard, or if you bite them on particularly hard food, they can break or chip. That’s not something anyone would want to experience. Broken or chipped teeth can affect your oral digestive functions, as well as your appearance.
When a tooth is chipped, its inner sensitive layers could get exposed. These layers contain the nerves, which are responsible for teeth’s sensation. They are highly sensitive to hot or cold temperatures, as well as to pressure, and exposure to these elements can cause excruciating pain that may require emergency treatment by a Newmarket dental professional.
