Cracked Tooth Syndrome

What is Cracked Tooth Syndrome?

Cracked tooth syndrome is where a tooth has incompletely cracked but no part of the tooth has broken off.

Symptoms:

  • Sharp pain to biting or releasing force
  • Sharp pain to cold food or beverages
  • Pain when grinding the teeth

Treatments:

  • Stabilization with a core build-up
  • Crown restoration for long term stabilization to minimize flexing of the tooth
  • Root Canal Therapy if pain persists after the crown
  • Extraction

Why is it Important to Treat a Cracked Tooth?

Leaving a cracked tooth can lead to severe pain, pulpal death, or loss of the tooth.
