|Why do teeth get cracks?
A common problem is that teeth will crack, either due to trauma, grinding, clenching, decay or heavily filled teeth. “Cracked Tooth Syndrome” relates to a variety of symptoms and signs caused by a crack or many cracks in a tooth. Early diagnosis is needed to improve the chances of saving a cracked tooth.
Sharp and erratic pain upon chewing or after release of biting pressure: not all cracks cause pain.
Sensitivity to cold or hot foods/drinks, or sweets
Difficulty in pinpointing which tooth hurts, either upper or lower
If you suspect that you may have a cracked tooth, discuss this with your dentist.
