Types of Tooth Cracks

A tooth can crack in a lot of ways. Treatment will depend on the type of crack in the tooth enamel. If the damage runs deep, you may need root canal treatment to save the tooth. If the crack is too extensive, your tooth may need to be extracted. Here are a few common types of cracked teeth:

Craze Lines in Teeth – Craze lines are small vertical cracks that cause no harm to teeth. Crazy lines in teeth are mere scratches on the tooth surface that require no treatment for health reasons or to improve mouth function but may be patched up for cosmetic purposes.
Oblique Supragingival Cracks – This is a fractured tooth crown that rarely extends below the gum line. The damaged cusp usually breaks off on its own or is removed. The inner workings of the tooth are unaffected.
Oblique Subgingival Cracks – A painful vertical fracture, this type of tooth crack extends past the gum line, and sometimes beyond the top of the jawbone. When a piece dislodges, it will remain attached until surgically removed by an endodontist.
Vertical Furcation Cracks – Another painful, vertical crack, this type occurs when the tooth roots separate. Only root canal treatment and a dental crown will repair and restore the tooth.

Cracked Tooth Treatment

Your dentist will use digital X-rays and other imaging to diagnose and treat your unique condition. There are many types of tooth fractures, and in cases where the inner soft tissue is affected, the best option is root canal therapy to prevent infection.

Have a broken tooth? The most severe tooth fractures do require extraction, but there are a number of replacement tooth options available including dental implants, bridges, and partial dentures. Think you may need a broken tooth extraction? Contact Maple Ridge Endodontics today to get in contact with our best endodontist in 84660.

I have been to Dr. Cardon twice. Very good , pain free root canal. The second time I went in for a consult, he picked up that I needed a different antibiotic, than the one I was on. He is a very caring, thorough Doctor.

Amazing people working on teeth here. They are happy and really care about what they are doing. I get extremely anxious and was able to use the laughing gas to calm my nerves during the procedure. It made everything better. They were fast and thorough. Will definitely come back for any work needed. Thanks Maple Ridge!!!

I had a great experience here! Staff was extremely aware of discomfort I was feeling during the procedure and made sure to stop and offer remedies. Fastest and pain free operation I’ve been through! I would highly recommend Maple Ridge Endodontics

I have been putting off for a couple of years due to dental nightmares when I was younger. Maple ridge staff was absolutely incredible! Fast , kind and understanding! I thought I would be in a lot of pain when the numbing wore off but no pain at all! I never dreamed getting a root canal would be so easy!
