What is Cracked Tooth Syndrome?

Every now and then, a patient will complain of pain coming from a tooth, even though nothing problematic shows up on an x-ray. This can be a sign of a problem known as cracked tooth syndrome. Cracked tooth syndrome appears without any clear evidence of a fracture. However, if left untreated, the problem can manifest into something bigger, such as a deeper fracture or serious gum infection.

Common causes of cracked tooth syndrome include grinding teeth at night, teeth with large fillings, or previous root canal treatments. As with any problem, it’s always wise to see a dentist to determine the cause and treatment for your individual case. Cracked teeth sometimes arise from chewing on irregular items, such as ice or pencils.

Routine treatments for cracked tooth syndrome typically involve a crown placement, bonding, or a root canal treatment.
