Cracked Teeth in San Ramon, CA

As the result of physical trauma or chronic stress on the enamel, a tooth that is cracked can be painful and lead to difficulty eating or speaking. There are several types of tooth cracks, such as a fractured cusp, craze lines, a vertical root fracture, and a split tooth. The crack type is based on its depth and location, which also determines the best treatment. It's essential to get help at San Ramon Family Dental as fast as possible when a crack is suspected so your tooth has a higher chance of being saved. A tooth crack will not heal, but Dr. Rupam Khanna will try to treat it so your tooth can remain intact and your pain can be relieved.

The location and depth of the crack in your tooth help Dr. Khanna decide on the most effective treatment option. Following a thorough dental exam, she will review your case and create a treatment plan. The goal is to either prevent an infection or totally remove an existing infection. To treat a fractured cusp, a tooth-colored filling or crown can fix the tooth and stop the crack from expanding. If the crack has reached the interior of the tooth, then a root canal could be needed. Endodontic surgery may be performed for a vertical root fracture or split tooth. In some cracks, your tooth may need to be extracted if it cannot be repaired to stop the infection from reaching other teeth.

A cracked tooth can cause a lot of discomfort, and the sooner you receive treatment, the better. Treatment for a cracked tooth can provide a number of benefits for our San Ramon, CA patients. Some of these benefits include:
