1/17. The undiagnosed split-root syndrome.

    The split-root syndrome is an often misdiagnosed painful condition. The major causes of the splits have been discussed. In addition, classical symptoms associated with this syndrome have been illustrated by two case reports to facilitate the syndrome's recognition. ( info)

2/17. diagnosis and treatment of cracked teeth.

    The incidence of cracked teeth appears to be increasing as we keep our teeth longer and the stresses of daily life result in crack-inducing habits, such as clenching and bruxism. This article deals with the clinical characteristics, diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of cracked teeth. Clinical cases are presented emphasizing the importance of early detection and a unique treatment approach to enhance the successful management of cracked teeth. ( info)

3/17. 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. ( info)

4/17. Efficient, conservative treatment of symptomatic cracked teeth.

    Every practice has patients who complain of cold sensitivity and pain on biting while showing no obvious signs of irreversible pulpitis. After loading each cusp and fossa in a symptomatic quadrant and ruling out pulp and periodontal pathology, definitive treatment can be performed to alleviate the patient's symptoms in a consistent, conservative manner using esthetic computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing porcelain restorations. Single-appointment definitive restorations can be advantageous for the patient because of the elimination of many steps involved in laboratory fabrication of porcelain or metal restorations. ( info)

5/17. 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.

6/17. 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. ( info)

7/17. 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. ( info)

8/17. 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. ( info)

9/17. 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. ( info)

10/17. 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. ( info)
