Cracked Teeth

Cracked Teeth

Modern dentistry is helping people to keep their teeth for longer but over time they can still become exposed to damage and the unpleasant effects of toothache.

How do I know if my teeth are cracked?

Cracked teeth are one of the most common causes of dental pain. A crack can expose the blood vessels and nerves in the tooth, leading to increased sensitivity when eating or when you have a hot or cold drink.  

Cracked teeth can be difficult to diagnose as tiny hairline cracks may not appear on x-rays and pain can appear infrequently so it is important to undergo regular thorough examinations by your dentist.

How can they be treated?

Your dental practitioner will examine the teeth, the gums and bone around the tooth to determine the cause of the pain. Common treatments for a cracked tooth include a filling, an inlay or a crown.

Our holistic approach means we don’t just treat the symptoms, we also look at the possible causes so we can offer help on how you can avoid future problems.

It is important to visit your dentist whenever you feel pain. The earlier your dentist can begin treatment, the more likely it will be that your tooth will be saved.
