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.


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


  • 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 crown

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