It’s not easy to tell if your child’s tooth is cracked and where the pain is coming from. If you think your child has a cracked tooth, see a dentist for an evaluation.
Contact the kid-friendly dentists at Kool Smiles to help relieve your child’s painful symptoms and repair the cracked tooth.
A cracked tooth is not always easy to see, even with an x-ray. Your child’s tooth may have a very tiny hairline crack that is invisible when you look at it.
While some cracks are barely noticeable, there are some recognizable symptoms of a cracked tooth. If your child complains of any of the following symptoms, you should have a dentist look at the tooth.
An untreated cracked tooth could lead to further damage, infection inside the tooth, and even the need to replace the tooth, so it’s best to get it looked at as soon as possible.
There are different ways a tooth can crack and some are more serious than others. Your child might have a cracked tooth if he or she:
Some cracks in the teeth are tiny, causing your child no pain. Other types of cracks affect the root of the tooth, and these are the most serious since they damage the part of the tooth that holds it in place.
A dentist can examine your child’s cracked tooth and determine what type of crack it is and how to repair it.
