Cracked Tooth Syndrome is a crack in a tooth that is invisible to the naked eye and most often can’t be seen on a radiograph (x-ray). Trying to detect where the pain is originating from is quite difficult since the crack can be a hairline fracture. When the cracked tooth is identified, treatment will be recommended in order of saving your tooth. Many people are experiencing Cracked Tooth Syndrome. Some symptoms are encountering a piercing pain that is quite intense while you bite down that then goes away when you release your bite. Also, feeling constant pain while drinking or eating something cold or hot. If you want to avoid cracking your teeth, you can start by not chewing on hard objects, such as hard candy, ice and unpopped popcorn kernels, wearing a mouthguard at night for clenching or grinding your teeth, and wearing a mouthguard when playing sports. A cracked tooth does not heal naturally on its own, meaning it’s important to treat the crack tooth as soon as possible before it gets unbearable. If you feel you present with one or more of the above symptoms please feel free to contact us for a consultation.
