How is a cracked tooth treated?
Treatment for cracked teeth depends largely on the type and severity of the crack. Your doctor will closely examine your tooth under high magnification and utilize high-tech imaging hardware to quickly get you on the road to recovery. Often, root canal therapy is the best treatment for a cracked tooth and can help save the natural tooth before the issue becomes more complex. Extraction is recommended for severely damaged teeth.
