How to identify and treat different types of tooth cracks
Updated: 3/22/2011 7:00:01 PM
 

Individuals who experience pain while chewing may have a cracked tooth that they are unaware of Toothaches can be caused by a number of different oral conditions and many times, dental professionals are needed to identify the source of discomfort.

Individuals who experience pain when they chew food may suffer from a cracked tooth that is not outwardly noticeable. In a recent article that was published in the Westmoreland Times, a Pennsylvania dentist explained different types of tooth cracks, along with methods of treatment.

Although crazes may be the most severe-looking type of tooth crack, they rarely require treatment, Dr. George Malkemus told the newspaper. Dentists may be able to improve the appearance of crazed teeth by using bonding methods or veneers.

Individuals who suffer from fractures or splits may lose portions of their teeth if the conditions are not addressed. Malkemus said that even small fractures can weaken an entire tooth, along with splits, which extend through the entire length of the structure. He told the news source that tooth extraction procedures are the most common remedy for these issues.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, dentists perform more than 49,000 tooth extractions annually.

Anyone who experiences pain while chewing food may consider asking a dentist to evaluate their mouth for cracked teeth.
