If you feel a sharp pain in your mouth when biting down, or you’re avoiding chewing with particular parts of your mouth due to discomfort, a cracked tooth might be the problem. Cracked teeth are a common issue and can be repaired. However, if left untreated for too long, complications can arise and result in your teeth requiring root canal treatment or even extraction.
Treatments for a Cracked Tooth
Thankfully, teeth that have cracks can be repaired to function as new again in most cases. The treatment required will depend on the severity of the crack in the impacted tooth.
Small cracks that don’t extend beneath the surface of your tooth enamel may not need a new treatment at all. If the crack has affected a large part of the tooth, then a crown or inlay may be required which is often used to hold it all in place.
Whatever the issue, Dr Olstein has over 30 years of experience identifying the precise extent of damage in cracked teeth, and treating it fast to relieve pain and restore the tooth to natural health.
