How does my tooth crack?

We see a lot of patients with little craze lines in a tooth.  If left untreated the lines can turn into a larger crack and cause a good amount of discomfort when chewing and ultimately frank pain.  In many times it can cause catastrophic failure of a tooth requiring extraction and replacement with a dental implant or a dental bridge.
