What Is a Cracked Tooth?

Dental trauma, teeth grinding, or wear and tear caused by aging can all result in a cracked tooth. A crack might cause constant pain or only be painful when you bite and chew. Sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures is another common sign of a cracked tooth.

The location and severity of a cracked tooth determine your treatment options. By seeking treatment as soon as possible after your injury, you’ll increase the likelihood of being able to save your tooth from needing extraction and replacement. 

Unless a crack reaches below the gumline, our endodontists will usually be able to save your tooth by removing the infected or inflamed pulp tissue. Once your tooth is saved, your general dentist will be able to repair the structural damage with a dental restoration, which restores function and appearance to the affected tooth.
