  • What are the treatment options for a cracked tooth?

    Treatment options for a cracked tooth can be very tricky because crack itself does not show up on x-ray films. If it shows on the film, then it's a fracture, not a crack. ADA recommends a cracked tooth to have a temporary crown first to hold tooth together and prevent from flexing. If symptoms persist even after a temporary crown, then unfortunately tooth will need a root canal treatment. Root canal treatment still does NOT heal already cracked tooth, rather it takes symptoms away. If symptoms are gone after root canal treatment, then you can proceed with a permanent crown. If symptoms persists, then tooth needs to be extracted, and treatment needs to discussed with your provider how to restore a missing space. At the end of the day, especially with a cracked tooth syndrome, it all comes down to how much you value your tooth. You should further discuss it with your provider and come up with a long-term plan because as much as we wish/hope, unfortunately, nothing lasts forever. Best wishes READ MORE
