Cracked teeth show a variety of symptoms, including erratic pain when chewing, pain with release of biting pressure, or pain when your tooth is exposed to temperature extremes. In many cases, the pain may come and go, and your dentist may have difficulty locating which tooth is causing the discomfort. If you are experiencing these dental symptoms or suspect a cracked tooth, contact us.
The treatment and outcome for your tooth depends on the type, location and extent of the crack. With a cracked tooth, it’s important to seek treatment quickly and before the problem gets worse. Once treated, most cracked teeth continue to function and provide years of comfortable chewing.
