How can cracked tooth syndrome be treated?
Treatment depends on the location, depth, and size of the fracture. If the pulp is affected by the fracture, endodontic treatment may be necessary. If the interior structures of the teeth are not compromised by the fracture, we may restore the tooth with conventional restoration methods such as a composite filling or a crown. Using the most advanced technology, Dr. Gross will ensure that the tooth is stabilized and fully functioning with methods that are as minimally invasive as possible and conserve the most tooth structure.
