While not totally preventable, you can make your teeth less prone to cracking by following these guidelines.

If you clench or grind your teeth, a mouthguard will protect your teeth and spread out the chewing forces of your jaw.

 

To prevent a crack due to injury, wear a mouthguard while playing sports and participating in activities like skateboarding.   

 

Avoid chewing hard items like candy, pens, ice cubes, and popcorn kernels.
