A Guide to the Types and Treatments of Cracked Teeth

If you think a crack in your tooth is no big deal, think again. Fortunately, there are many possible ways to soothe and save a cracked tooth.

The Concern of Cracked Teeth

Even if a crack in your tooth is very small, it can be a big threat to your dental health. Luckily, the earlier you notice the problem and seek affordable dental care, the greater your chance of saving the tooth and protecting yourself from later problems. You may not notice your tooth has cracked at first, but you will soon feel pain when chewing or putting pressure on the tooth. At the very first sign of a problem, go to a Dentist in CITY immediately.

Treating Each Type of Cracked Teeth

Today, there are many available and affordable dental care treatments that are used to repair cracked teeth. But the treatment prescribed for you will be based on the severity of the crack and the current degree of damage. After a thorough examination, a Dentist in CITY can determine the right treatment for you. See which treatments are best for each type of dental damage:

  • A Fractured Cusp – When the crack is in the raised section of the tooth called the cusp, the tooth simply breaks off on its own, or it will need to be extracted. Once removed, a dental crown is used to cap and protect the tooth.
  • A Cracked Tooth – These types of cracks typically run vertically from the top of the tooth’s crown on down. The best treatment is a root canal, followed by a dental crown. Be aware that a very deep crack may demand that the tooth be extracted.
  • A Split Tooth – When you don’t treat a cracked tooth, the crack can delve deep beyond the root and make the tooth split. While a root canal can sometimes save the tooth, it may need to be extracted if the damage is severe.
  • A Vertical Root Fracture – A crack that extends through the entire tooth will typically require dental surgery to save the tooth.

Remember, only a dental professional can determine your best treatment, so go to a dentist at the first sign of suffering.
