Topic Description :

Cracking the Cracked Tooth Code: Detection and Treatment of Various Longitudinal Fractures


Root cracks and fractures can be two of the most frustrating aspects of endodontic and restorative dentistry. Cracked teeth are a common finding in dental practice but the diagnosis can be difficult because of the vague nature of its signs and symptoms. Studies show that the range of treatment for cracked teeth can vary from conservative restorative treatment to extraction and replacement with an implant or bridge. The goal of this presentation is to help the dentist better understand the complexities of diagnosing and treating the cracked tooth.

Learning Objectives:

  • Classify the five types of cracked teeth
  • Explain why cracked teeth are hard to diagnose
  • Know the steps of crack detection and confirmation
  • Know how to treat cracked teeth appropriately
  • Know how to prevent vertical root fractures
