Did ice cream crack my tooth?
Like so many areas of life, this straddles the line between truth and myth. Extreme temperatures can in fact crack your teeth; but they probably won’t. A healthy adult tooth can usually stand up just fine against varying temperature changes within the mouth.
If you should crack a tooth (for any reason), don’t delay coming to see us. Early detection and treatment can ensure a nerve isn’t eventually exposed. That’s some point you really want to avoid if at all possible.
If you have any other dental questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. We love to set the record straight when it comes to debunking dental myths.
