Condition. Craze lines, the tiny cracks (lines) that affect only the outer tooth surface, cause no pain or discomfort and require no treatment.

In brief: Very common

As an orthodontist i see them in young children all the time.
Craze lines usually caused by trauma such as chewing ice, chewing hard candy, chewing meat on bones, not wearing mouth guard for contact sports (soccer, basketball, messing around, etc). Also see craze lines in children with major malocclusion w large horizontal overbite or deep vertical overbite. Also seen in adults who clench/grind.

In brief: Comon finding

Teeth wear and are submitted to many chewing forces and habits.
A comon finding in our days are people who clench and grind their teeth at night ot at any given time of the day. Craze lines appear when these habits take place over time, or when the front teeth are overloaded because the patient doesn't have posterior teeth to help with chewing forces.

In brief: Yes

All of us have craze lines.
Some more than others. Occlusion and diet and age are factors.
