It can happen at any time. You bite down on that lunchtime burrito, crunch a piece of ice, or take a sip of that ice cold water, and suddenly a sharp pain shoots from your tooth. You brush and floss regularly, stay away from sugary sodas, and your last dental checkup showed no cavities, so why does your tooth hurt so badly? Most likely, you have a cracked tooth. Call our Ft. Worth dental office today to schedule an appointment for Dr. Green or Dr. Leedy to evaluate your tooth and suggest treatment to relieve your pain.
A crack may result from a number of different factors. In your lifetime, you will almost certainly have some tiny cracks on the surface of your teeth due to normal wear and tear. These small cracks may never bother you and won’t require treatment. However, chewing on ice or hard candy, clenching or grinding your teeth, a blow to the mouth, or even taking a drink of ice water after chewing hot food can cause your teeth to crack more severely, possibly down to the root. Sometimes a cracked tooth is hard to diagnose, as the damage may appear as a microscopic hairline fracture that is hard to see even on an x-ray, and you may difficulty determining exactly which tooth hurts. For these reasons, you should pay attention to any sensitivity to heat or cold and approximately where the pain originates when you chew, to help Dr. Green or Dr. Leedy determine which tooth needs attention.
Depending on the severity, you may not experience any pain at all from a cracked tooth. Pain usually starts when pressure from chewing causes the pieces to move, irritating the pulp. When the pressure on the tooth is released it results in a quick, sharp pain. The pain may subside when you aren’t chewing, but eventually a sensitivity to heat or cold could develop. If the crack is deep enough, it will allow bacteria to infect the pulp, causing the tooth to hurt constantly, even when you are not chewing.
Treatment of a cracked tooth depends on the depth and severity of the crack. Dr. Green and Dr. Leedy offer the following treatment options. Call for an appointment today and visit our comfortable Fort Worth, TX office to discuss your options.
If you suspect you have a cracked tooth, don’t wait for the pain to get worse. Call today for an appointment with Dr. Nikki Green at our welcoming Fort Worth, TX office and we’ll have you feeling better in no time!
