Cracked teeth can be attributed to dental injury or general wear and tear. They can express a variety of symptoms ranging from pain upon chewing food to sensitivity from temperature extremes. Cracked teeth can be difficult to locate and diagnose, which is why your dentist may refer you to an endodontist for evaluation. If you experience these symptoms and your dentist suspects a cracked tooth, treatment is recommended as soon as possible. Treatment options depend on the tooth’s diagnosis and extent of the crack.
