The enamel which is the external layer of the tooth is the hardest tissue in the human body, but it is breakable. If for any reason the enamel is fractured, the damage can easily spread to the softer dentin layer below and the dental pulp chamber holding the tooth nerves in the core of the tooth.
Are You Experiencing Chipped Tooth Pain?
Avoid hot or cold food or drinks. If your nerve is exposed, it will be susceptible to changes in temperature. Both hot and cold temperatures will create severe pain. Stop this pain by staying away from hot coffee, tea, soup or other foods. Don’t drink iced drinks or eat ice cream.
