1/12. The cracked-tooth syndrome: clinical features and case reports.

    Over a period of 5 months, 18 patients with one or more cracked teeth were treated. Mandibular first molars and maxillary premolars were the teeth most frequently affected. The least affected teeth were mandibular premolars. Predisposing factors for cracked-tooth syndrome are decreased stability (such as caries or poor cavity design) and overloading of the tooth. Treatment involves initial reinforcement and a circumferential cast restoration.

2/12. cracked tooth syndrome: diagnosis, treatment and correlation between symptoms and post-extraction findings.

    Although the cracked tooth syndrome has been known for over twenty years, it frequently remains undiagnosed because the condition is not sufficiently well recognized. cracked tooth syndrome has been defined as an incomplete fracture of the dentine in a vital posterior tooth, and must be distinguished from a split tooth. A diagnosis can often be made by means of the history, and must be confirmed by reproducing the patient's symptoms. The ideal treatment consists of applying a stainless steel band to the tooth, with cessation of symptoms confirming the diagnosis, followed by a full coverage restoration. Case histories illustrating the syndrome are presented, and a further case is reported where a diagnosis of cracked tooth syndrome was made, and the tooth extracted, sectioned and stained to show the nature of the cracks and their relationship to the pulp.

3/12. The diagnosis and treatment of the cracked tooth syndrome.

    Teeth restored with intracoronal restorations that provide no protection of the cusps from occlusal loading may fracture completely or partially. An incomplete dentinal fracture of a vital posterior tooth may cause pain. This condition is commonly known as the "cracked tooth syndrome". Location of the dentinal crack is difficult and must be guided by a precise history, thermal pulp testing and inspection of the dentinal walls within the suspect tooth. The number, extent and direction of the fracture lines may be ascertained readily by using transillumination and magnification. This allows the clinician to distinguish between oblique and vertical cracks. Treatment of oblique incomplete fracture relies on desensitisation of the hypersensitive dentine followed by splinting of the tooth fragments. Treatment of vertical incomplete fracture requires pulpectomy and immediate splinting of the crown. Two case reports are presented.

4/12. Bilateral cracked teeth: a case report.

    This report presents a case of undiagnosed, cracked, bilateral, maxillary molars. Both teeth were non-carious and unrestored. Failure to diagnose the initial cracks resulted in further splitting, and finally complete vertical fractures. The problem of diagnosis is highlighted and the treatment of the cracked tooth to prevent its fracture is discussed.

5/12. The cracked tooth syndrome--crown root vertical fracture.

    A case of an incomplete tooth fracture followed by a complete fracture was presented. The difficulty of diagnosing this condition was discussed as well as the possible histological explanation of the symptoms experienced by the patient. It once again points out to practising dentists, that whilst deep pockets can give rise to severe periodontal pain, intense and excruciating pain should be investigated with the cracked tooth in mind.

6/12. A false diagnosis of a cracked tooth: report of case.

    A case of false diagnosis of cracked tooth syndrome is reported, illustrating an instance in which all of the diagnostic criteria suggested reasons for the syndrome; however, the actual cause was related to atypical root canal anatomy and external root resorption of the tooth in question.

7/12. The bonded amalgam restoration--a review of the literature and report of its use in the treatment of four cases of cracked-tooth syndrome.

    Recent interest in amalgam as a restorative material has been directed toward the development of the bonded amalgam restoration. The literature regarding the theoretical and clinical aspects of this technique is reviewed. Four cases of successful treatment of cracked-tooth syndrome with the bonded amalgam restoration are presented.

8/12. Chronic focal sclerosing osteomyelitis associated with a cracked tooth. Report of a case.

    Chronic focal sclerosing osteomyelitis is a periapical lesion that involves reactive osteogenesis evoked by chronic inflammation of the dental pulp. In most cases, this lesion develops in the mandibular molar region in response to a low-grade infection of the pulp that results from a deep carious lesion. A case is presented in which incomplete tooth fracture was the apparent cause of this type of periapical pathosis.

10/12. Use of resin-bonded partial coverage ceramic restorations to treat incomplete fractures in posterior teeth: a clinical report.

    The objective of restorative treatment of teeth with incomplete fractures is to minimize flexure of the compromised cusps to prevent propagation of the crack. These goals can be addressed with resin-bonded posterior ceramic restorations, but long-term integrity rests on the efficiency of the restoration's bond to the dental hard tissues. Success is dependent on diligent operative performance throughout the entire procedure. Some tips for achieving successful preparation, provisionalization, and partial-coverage restoration of the incompletely fractured posterior tooth are discussed.
