Why are my teeth chipping and breaking?
If your teeth are chipping and breaking, you might be grinding your teeth—either consciously or subconsciously while you sleep. Another possibility is that your bite needs an adjustment. An occlusal adjustment corrects the alignment of the bite that might be off because of loose, shifting, crowded, or missing teeth. The result is an evenly distributed bite that eliminates irregular pressure on one side of the mouth. Once your bite is adjusted, your teeth will meet properly and your teeth will no longer be subject to enough pressure to chip and break.
