What is the cracked tooth syndrome?
Tiny cracks on the teeth cannot be seen while looking in the mirror, but they do exist. They appear in cases where the patients develop bruxism, which is another serious dental problem. Grinding the teeth while sleeping will damage the denture which starts to develop fissures.

Although some fissures on the teeth cannot be seen on a simple dental x-ray, there are other ways a dentist can discover if a patient developed the cracked tooth syndrome. For instance, he will use a bite stick transillumination to see deep into the tooth and then, with the help of a microscope he will start repairing the teeth. Remineralization and fluoridation treatments are the most common cures in cracked tooth syndrome. If the teeth are badly fissured and the nerve is almost exposed, then a root canal treatment will be suggested by our Dubai dentist.
For minor cracks on a tooth, the doctor will polish them and then will use a fluoride gel for a couple of minutes. It is good to know that fluoride treatments can also be made at home, considering the whole explanations and indications of the doctor. You might want to change your diet too if the dentist considers this method will make you stay away from further cracked tooth syndrome.
