FAQ:  Cracked Tooth




Question:
I cracked my third teeth to the back on my right side and now it has a little rot on the gum on side of it. What should I do? ... Visitor from AL

Answer:
You need to see a dentist to make sure the tooth isn't fractured and is NOT causing an infection process that enters down into the jawbone.

Crowning cracked teeth doesn't always work out well. Although there is chance for tooth loss.....getting an infection that is deep seated in your jaw is something to avoid at all costs. They can become nearly impossible to treat.... possibly causing years of misery.
