Your teeth are incredibly strong, but they aren’t indestructible. There are many ways that your teeth can become damaged, such as poor oral hygiene, a sports injury, or an accident. However, if you have a tooth that becomes compromised, it is left vulnerable and is likely to become further harmed in the future.
