Do You Have a Cracked Tooth?

 
Crowns can replace cracked teeth.

Symptoms of cracked tooth syndrome include:

  • Pain while chewing
  • Hot and cold sensitivity
  • Pain when eating sweets
  • No evidence of a problem on X-rays
  • No tooth decay present

Teeth may crack when subjected to stress of chewing hard foods or ice, or by biting on unexpected hard objects. Teeth restored with silver fillings are most susceptible. The majority of cracked teeth can be treated by placement of a dental crown on the tooth.

When the crown is placed on the tooth, the pain usually leaves immediately. Occasionally the tooth cracks into the nerve of the tooth. If pain persists after placement of the crown, you may have a crack into the nerve of that tooth. Please call your dentist, as this tooth may require a root canal. Suggestions will be made to help you maintain good oral health.

It's never too late to improve your dental health. Call us at 1-866-970-0441 to find the right dentist for you!
