Cracked tooth syndrome is the term which refers to an incomplete fracture of a vital posterior tooth that involves the dentin and occasionally extends into the pulp.
This patient of Outremont came to Prisma Dentistes with this condition and having the following symptoms:
- Discomfort to chewing
- Sensitivity to hot and cold
- Pain that comes and goes
Dr Lechner saw this patient, he cleaned the fracture line and then filled it with a composite material.
The symptoms that the patient had were gone following the treatment.
If the symptoms persisted a root canal treatment and a porcelain crown might be necessary.
