Dental emergencies like cracking your teeth can happen anytime.
It's important to understand what happens when your tooth cracks and how to properly treat and restore it to protect it from further harmful dental issues.
Whether your tooth cracks from an injury or general wear and tear, you can experience a variety of symptoms ranging from erratic pain when you chew your food to sudden pain when your tooth is exposed to very hot or cold temperatures.
In many cases, the pain may come and go and your dentist may have difficulty locating the tooth causing the discomfort.
If you experience these symptoms or suspect a cracked tooth, it’s best to see an endodontist as soon as possible.
