My main upper tooth got cracked suddenly. Here no dentist consultancy before Sunday ! I am afraid If I eat something, then problem may get worse. I had sensitivity problems since last 2 to 3 years. But for that I am using Sensodent / Sensodyne tooth pastes twice a day. And No tooth ache after that..but today suddenly tooth cracked. PLEASE ADVICE IMMEDIATELY. The Pic of cracked tooth is just like this (i found in Net Search) http://www.drnickcampos.com/health-newsletter/chipped%20teeth.jpg

  • Trauma to the tooth or eating something very hard can lead to cracked tooth. Treatment of cracked tooth depends on nature of crack line, amount of tooth damage and tooth which is cracked. If it is a front tooth which is cracked, then it can be restored with composite filling which is tooth colored, esthetic filling material. If tooth loss is more, than dental veneers can be given to the patient. If it is a back tooth which is cracked, then dental restoration or crown is given for the tooth. If nerve of the tooth is also involved, then root canal treatment followed by dental crown is given for the tooth. Chipped tooth if not treated can become infected and can cause pain and other complications. You can visit a dentist for treatment. By the time, you visit your dentist, you can avoid eating from side of affected tooth and maintain good oral hygiene to avoid any secondary infections.
