Do You Suffer from Cracked Tooth Syndrome?

Posted on 1/10/2019 by Mark Bieber
Do You Suffer from Cracked Tooth Syndrome?One of the primary complaints we encounter from our patients at our office is the experience of dental pain. Most of us don't spend too much time thinking about our teeth, but the moment the discomfort and ache sets in, we begin to worry.

Cracks in your teeth are not only painful, they can also cause lasting damage to the structure of the tooth. Swift intervention is vital to help preserve your tooth.

Signs and Symptoms of Cracked Tooth Syndrome

Cracked Tooth Syndrome (CTS) is one of the trickier dental problems to diagnose. Because it is often a fine, hairline crack, it doesn't always show up on X-rays.

Some of the clues that you may have CTS include:

•  Pain when you bite or chew
•  Sensitivity to heat or cold
•  A dull, intermittent ache
•  Sensitivity to sugar

Certain demographics are more inclined to develop CTS, such as athletes who play impact sports, people who grind their teeth, and a history of fillings or dental procedures in the affected tooth.

Treating CTS

Because CTS is so subtle and won't show up on an X-ray, we will have to inspect your mouth with a special tool called an "explorer” to find the crack. If it sounds unkind, we apologize!

We're not trying to hurt you, but we must replicate the pain to help determine the location of the crack.

Depending on the severity of the crack, there are several treatment options we can offer. Around 20% of cracked teeth respond well to a root canal, but sometimes a crown can do the trick. Occasionally, we do have to extract the tooth and replace it with an implant or a bridge. We may even advise that you wear a mouth guard at night to help prevent grinding of your teeth.

If you suspect that you may have CTS, please give our office a call to schedule a complete dental exam. We can thoroughly inspect your teeth to ensure that no details are overlooked, and if it turns out you do have CTS, we can work with you to plan a course of action to help save your tooth.
