A Cracked Tooth And Endodontic Care
There are many types of dental abnormalities that occur in patients of all ages. From cavities to decay and misaligned teeth, today’s modern dentistry offers an array of options to patients in terms of repairing teeth and making them fully functional and attractive once again. One particular type of tooth related problem is something known as a cracked tooth. A cracked tooth can occur for many different reasons. For example, general wear and tear can cause a tooth to crack. In addition, accidents and injuries can result in the same tooth related problem.
A Unique Focus On Cracked Teeth
There are many different symptoms associated with a cracked tooth but the main ones include everything from erratic pain when chewing to sudden pain when the tooth becomes exposed to either very cold or very hot temperatures. The pain may be erratic and may come and go unexpectedly. This is a clear sign that the tooth may indeed be cracked. Your dental care provider will work to find the cause of the discomfort and will likely suspect a cracked tooth. An endodontist is a dental care specialist with a unique focus on cracked teeth and providing root canal treatment. An endodontist is primarily focused on saving cracked teeth and the type of treatment needed to successfully deal with a cracked tooth.
Function For Many Years In A Normal And Healthy Way
Once identifying the location and extent of the crack, the endodontist will determine the best course of action. Keep in mind that the sooner that a tooth is treated the better the overall outcome will ultimately be for the patient. Most importantly, a cracked tooth that is properly treated and that is treated as soon as possible can function for many years in a normal and healthy way. Pain-free biting and chewing as well as a better outward appearance are always possible even with a cracked tooth.
