A cracked tooth can cause more serious dental health problems to develop in your mouth. If the crack is deep enough to expose the inner pulp tissues to bacteria, then they can become infected. An abscess may develop as a result, which can cause pain, swelling, and other problems. In order to prevent these issues, we provide cracked tooth treatment.
If a crack like a fractured cusp does not expose your pulp tissues, then it can be repaired easily with a filling or crown. However, more serious cracks and breakage of the tooth may require a root canal treatment. In these cases, the tooth can be saved unless the damage reaches below the gum line. Usually extraction can only treat this problem. In rare cases where the crack begins in the tooth root, a root amputation procedure may be needed.
