Cracked tooth syndrome

Cracked tooth syndrome is the term that refers to an incomplete fracture of a vital posterior tooth that involves the dentin and occasionally extends into the pulp.

This patient from Outremont came to Prisma Dentistes with this condition and had the following symptoms:

  • Discomfort to chewing
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Pain that came and went

Dr. Lechner treated 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 had persisted, a root canal treatment and a porcelain crown may have been necessary.
