Do senior's teeth break more easily?
I visited my mother this weekend and saw that one of her upper front teeth was broken off in almost its entirety . She said it broke while eating an apple.
It did not have a filling in it, and she was at the dentist about a year ago for a check-up.
Is it possible that almost an entire tooth could break off from eating something?
Or should I be suspicious that she may have fallen? She did not seem to have any bruises on her face or the immediate area.
The last time I saw here was over a month ago, and her teeth seemed fine then. She hasn't gone to the dentist yet about this.
