Cracked Tooth

Cracked tooth syndrome (CTS) refers to a fractured tooth and is when a crack appears in a tooth. The crack may be tiny and harmless or, in the case of more significant damage, can cause a tooth to split or break. 

Cracked Tooth Syndrome

What is cracked tooth syndrome?

Whether your tooth cracks from an injury or general wear and tear, you can experience a variety of symptoms ranging from erratic pain when you chew your food to sudden pain when your tooth is exposed to very hot or cold temperatures. In many cases, the pain may come and go and your dentist may have difficulty locating the tooth causing the discomfort. If you experience these symptoms or suspect a cracked tooth, it’s best to see an endodontist as soon as possible.

How we treat cracked tooth syndrome

Endodontists specialize in saving cracked teeth and will cater treatment to the type, location, and extent of the crack. The sooner your tooth is treated, the better the outcome. Once treated, most cracked teeth continue to function as they should, for many years of pain-free biting and chewing.
