When you come to see our dentist with a cracked tooth, you will see one of our top-notch dentists, just one of whom is Dr. David R. Grife. Sometimes it is difficult to diagnose a cracked tooth because a cracked tooth can cause intermittent dental pain. When a patient chews on a cracked tooth, the crack can open and close, causing damage to the inner pulp. Should this occur, the way the cracked tooth can be saved is with a root canal treatment. If this Quincy MI dental treatment will not work, the tooth will need to be extracted and replaced with a dental implant or bridge. There are many different types of cracked teeth. Sometimes a crack in a tooth is simply superficial, and can easily be cosmetically fixed with either a porcelain veneer or cosmetic bonding. Other times, a crack in a tooth can go well beneath the gum line. If this is the case, it is most likely that the tooth cannot be saved, and will need to be extracted and replaced. When a tooth appears to be in danger of cracking, or has cracked, our dentist may treat the tooth and then cover it with a dental crown to protect the tooth and restored it to its full function. There are a large number of different types of dental cracks, and each one is treated differently depending on the type of crack, location of the crack, and condition of the tooth.
