Cracked Teeth

Pensacola, FL Endodontist

Whether due to an injury or the natural wear and tear of time, a cracked tooth can be a painful experience for many patients. At Elite Endodontics, we specialize in the treatment of this condition, relieving your pain and saving your tooth.

Why it Happens

Constructed from several components, your tooth has two outer layers known as enamel and dentin, and sensitive inner layers known as pulp. When the outer layers of your tooth suffer from a crack, it exposes the nerve filled pulp to bacteria, inflammation, and infection. The result is a painful tooth that should be treated as soon as possible.

Your Treatment Options

In some cases, locating the individual cracked tooth can be difficult. However, through the use of our surgical microscopes, our Pensacola dental team will be able to find injuries quickly, allowing us to design a treatment plan to match the location and severity of your injury.

Depending on your needs, we will work to either restore your natural tooth or provide you with an alternative solution. At the time of your exam, our Pensacola dental team will discuss both options with you and make a recommendation based upon our experience.

Regardless of the reason or severity of your own cracked tooth, it is important to have this type of injury treated as soon as possible. Putting off cracked tooth treatment may result in worsening pain and the loss of teeth.

Can a cracked tooth heal?

Unfortunately, fractured teeth do not heal, but dental solutions can seal or cover the tooth to prevent the fracture from deepening or spreading to the root of the tooth.

How Can I Prevent Cracked Teeth?

While some accidents are simply unavoidable, you can help protect your smile by:

  • Wearing a mouth-guard while engaging in physical activity
  • Using a night-guard if you regularly grind or clench your teeth
  • Avoid chewing on hard objects such as ice, bone, or pens

Eliminate your pain and save your smile with cracked tooth treatment from Elite Endodontics. Contact our dental team today for more information, or to schedule your appointment.
