A common problem in the detail field is dealing with cracked, otherwise known as fracture teeth.
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, see an endodontist, who specializes in saving cracked teeth.
Some symptoms that may help identify sooner are:
- Feeling of pain with no obvious cause
- Sensitivity to warm and cold foods
- Pain when eating
The type of treatment you will require depends of the type of crack your tooth has endured.
If the crack is not too deep, you can have a root canal performed, which allows for the natural tooth to remain in your mouth.
If the tooth is too badly damaged, then it may require an extraction. Prior to this process your dentist will discuss restorative options with you, such as dental implants, partial dentures and Bridges.
