Cracked Teeth

A cracked tooth is a painful condition and prompt treatment is necessary to save the tooth. Like cracks in a windshield, cracks in teeth may often start small and progress slowly. The sooner the crack is detected and treated, the better the chance of saving your tooth.

Dr. Kennedy will assess your tooth to determine the right course of action.

Sometimes, a root canal may be necessary, depending on the depth and location of the crack. Because a root canal involves removing the nerve of the tooth, this procedure will help alleviate the pain. Your general dentist will most likely recommend a crown that fits over the top of your tooth to help restore your tooth to full function.
