What can I do to prevent my teeth from cracking?

While cracked teeth are not completely preventable, you can take some steps to make your teeth less susceptible to cracks.

– Don’t chew on hard objects such as ice, unpopped popcorn kernels or pens.
– Don’t clench or grind your teeth.
– If you clench or grind your teeth while you sleep, talk to your dentist about getting a retainer or other mouth guard to protect your teeth.
– Wear a mouth guard or protective mask when playing contact sports.
