There are many types of cracked teeth. The treatment and outcome for your tooth depends on the type, location and severity of the crack.
Unlike a broken bone, a fracture in a cracked tooth will never heal. Early diagnosis is important, even with high magnification and special lighting, it is sometimes difficult to determine the extent of a crack.
A crown will bind and protect the cracked tooth. When a crack reaches the tooth root, root canal treatment is frequently needed to treat the injured pulp. A cracked tooth that is not treated will progressively worsen, eventually resulting in the loss of the tooth.
Refusing to accept the prognosis, of five different dentists in Tampa, Orlando, and Highlands County, that the only solution to my dental situation would be extraction of all the lower teeth to then replace them with dental implants.
I searched and finally found Dr. Gayle Obermayr at Heartland ENDODONTICS, a Root Canal specialist. She saved my teeth, my dignity, and my pride!! I can smile again!!! Thank You Dr. Gayle Obermayr!!!!!
You're not just a Root Canal Specialist, you’re an angel, here on planet earth in this tiny little place we call Sebring, Florida!!
