When teeth are damaged, whether mildly or severely from injury or decay, the best course of action is to bring the tooth in question back into functional working order. This not only helps restore the tooth’s appearance but also prevents it from becoming damaged further while in a weakened state. Of the utmost consideration is the “why” of the damage found and creating an oral environment with a wellness solution in mind. Broken teeth can have their origins in clenching habits whose foundation may lie in inadequate airway space causing the brain to signal to us to move the tongue forward and out of the airway. Grinding and clenching move the lower jaw with tongue forward, and broken worn teeth may be signs that this is be the cause.
