Cracked Tooth Syndrome

Cracked Tooth Syndrome

Cracked tooth syndrome occurs when a tooth has a crack that’s too small to show up on X-rays, or is under the gum and challenging to identify.

It appears most often on molars.

Most people experience cracked tooth syndrome as pain or discomfort when biting into food, or when teeth are exposed to hot or cold temperatures. The pain or discomfort won’t be constant, as with a cavity.

Causes:

People who grind or clench their teeth
The way a person's teeth come together it can put too much pressure on one tooth, causing the tooth to crack
Teeth with large fillings
Teeth that have undergone root canal treatment
