Endodontists specialize in treating dental pain, and often this pain is caused by a cracked tooth. Sometimes the crack is the result of dental trauma, but other times it may be due to wear and tear or even a teeth grinding habit. The pain can be constant or it may come and go when you bite or chew; many patients also experience extreme sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures.
When patients experience this kind of pain, they usually turn to their dentists for treatment, but often cracks in teeth are difficult to identify, even with x-rays. Endodontists have the expertise and equipment, including surgical microscopes and CBCT, to locate even the smallest cracks in the teeth and provide the treatment needed to alleviate pain and sensitivity.
Treatment depends on the type, location, and severity of the crack; the earlier you receive treatment, the more likely it is that we can save your cracked tooth. Often treatment is performed in collaboration with your dentist—Dr. Sarraf can save your tooth and remove inflamed or infected pulp, while your dentist can restore the tooth structure with a tooth-colored composite filling or crown.
