Cracked tooth syndrome may occur in any tooth but often involves:
Not all cracks in teeth will cause pain but often a cracked tooth will become painful while eating and become sensitive to hot or cold temperatures. A crack may not always be obvious because it is not always visible to the eye or detectable on a dental x-ray. Your dentist may perform a number of tests to determine if and where a crack is present.
Treatment of a cracked tooth will depend on the extent and position of the crack. The treatment for most cracked teeth involves removing the weakened portion of the tooth and restoring with a filling or crown. When a crack is more complex, the tooth may need root canal treatment or extraction in order to relieve the symptoms of cracked tooth syndrome.
