Symptoms of a Fractured Molar
Posted on 2/15/2020 by Progressive Oral Surgery
It happens to the best of us: one minute you are having a nice snack and the next minute you feel something in the back of your mouth crunch. Hopefully, it was just a hard bite you did not realize was so tough, but sometimes, it might be the sound of your tooth breaking. Even though the idea of a tooth breaking can be scary in itself, you might not even be able to feel it beyond the initial chomp. You should be aware of the signs, even if it does not hurt. A crack can easily expose your root and leave it susceptible to dangerous bacteria. How Do I Know My Tooth Broke?A cracked tooth can happen any time, from munching on ice or hard candies to burning your mouth with something too hot and trying to cool it off with ice water. For many, when it happens, you will know. For one, pain might be the primary symptom, because depending on the severity, it could hurt quite a bit. It may be more obvious when you chew something or release the grip on the food. You may also notice swelling around the area if it is a serious crack. Others may notice an increase in sensitivity when exposed to hot or cold foods, or even something sweet. There are ways we can determine if your tooth has cracked. One way of doing it is running a scraper along the enamel to see if it catches on anything. There is also a special dye that can show us where a crack might be. X-rays are always a good way to explore your oral health and while it may not be able to show us where it broke, we will be able to see the inside of your tooth and determine the health of the pulp. A broken tooth is never fun. If you feel like you might have one and would like to find out more, give us a call and we can help you out....
