Cracked Teeth

What Is the Prognosis of a Cracked Tooth?

Some common types of cracks are superficial and require no intervention while other cracks can eventually lead to the loss of your tooth. A cracked tooth can cause a wide variety of symptoms. The movement along the crack irritates the nerve of the tooth. If cracks and fractures are left untreated they can allow bacteria from your saliva to penetrate the tooth and cause infection.
