Straight Talk about Treating Cracked Teeth

dental long shadow icons

If you have a crack in your teeth, you’ll need to know how to handle the dental damage to avoid major pain and problems. Find out the facts on treating cracked teeth with this helpful dental guide.

The Real Risk of Cracked Teeth

According to dentists, even the tiniest crack in a tooth can lead to larger and later problems. But 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.

The Right Treatment for Cracked Teeth

Fortunately, there are now many available and affordable dental care procedures that can successfully treat cracked teeth. Of course, the treatment that’s best for each case is based on the type of crack and amount 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:

  • Fractured Cusps – When a crack occurs in the raised section of the tooth called the cusp, the tooth often breaks off on its own, or it will have to be removed. Once the tooth is extracted, a dental crown is used to cap and protect the tooth.
  • Cracked Teeth – These 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 is extracted.
  • Split Teeth – If you fail to 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.
  • Vertical Root Fractures – A crack that extends through the entire tooth will typically require dental surgery to save the tooth

Keep in mind that only a dentist can determine the ideal treatment for you, which is why you need to visit a dentist at the first sign of a problem.
