Different Types of Cracked Teeth
Here are the 5 types of cracked teeth:
A. Craze lines- small, superficial cracks that usually don’t require treatment.
B. Fractured cusps- a piece of the tooth breaks off, but the root remains intact.
C. Cracked teeth- a visible crack that can extend below the gum line and may require a crown or root canal.
D. Split roots- when the tooth splits vertically and may require extraction.
E. Vertical root fractures- occur in the root and can be difficult to diagnose and treat.
Each crack is unique and requires unique treatment from an experienced and trusted dentist. Don’t put off treatment if you have a cracked tooth! Call our dental team today!
