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.
