This patient’s main complaint was that her front teeth kept chipping. If you are regularly chipping teeth, you have to wonder why. Teeth are normally quite strong. Perhaps you are grinding at night time, or maybe you are chewing on things you really shouldn’t be (ice chewers, you know who you are). In this case the patient had developed cavities along all the incising edges of her front teeth which tunneled down, undermined the enamel and caused them to eventually chip upon slight force. These cavities caused no pain whatsoever to the patient, yet they were present. Keep in mind cavities will often not cause pain. You can see the dark staining in the incisors. This is decay. If something seems unusual or out of place, check with your dentist. It is always best to catch a problem when it is small because small problems equate to simple solutions and small costs!
