Cracked Teeth

What are cracked teeth?

Cracks through the enamel and dentine of the tooth can happen, and you’ll usually notice the following symptoms:

  •  Pain from hot and cold foods
  •  Pain on biting or upon release of biting pressure
  •  Loss of tooth substance following actual fracture

Why do cracks form?

Although dental enamel is the strongest material the body makes, it also has a brittle glass-like structure. This makes it vulnerable to cracking or fracturing under certain circumstances.

Do Cracked Teeth Need Treatment?

Yes. Cracks tend to spread over time. If left unchecked, cracks in the enamel could lead to cracks in the underlying dentine layer; this causes pain because dentine is sensitive.

How are cracked teeth treated?

Treatment needed depends very much on how soon the crack(s) are diagnosed. Early diagnosis before any symptoms have started offers the best chance of successful treatment. Diagnosis after the symptoms of pain have started may mean root fillings or even surgery.

Do I have cracked teeth?

Cracks in teeth are common. In the early stages, cracks in teeth are painless and sometimes hard for you to spot. That’s why we use magnifying glasses are during your examination. Your dentist can tell you if you have any cracks in your teeth and what is the most appropriate treatment for you.

After years of not being able to eat solid food, because of bad decay and alot of tooth discomfort, i decide to go and have a consultation on having implant retained dentures. How professional all the staff were, and after having my remaining teeth removed and 4 implants in the top and 2 in the bottom, i can now eat properly and i am pain free. The photo,s speak for themselves.. The best money i have ever spent. Highly recommend stella maris dental
