Tooth fractures are traumatic injuries that cover a large area of the mouth. Tooth fractures manifest themselves as small fractures or cracks on the outer surface. However, these visual fractures are sometimes not limited to a visible crack, but also affect the underlying tissues of the tooth. 

For Treatment of tooth fracture, treatment is planned according to the tissue that occurs in tooth fractures. If the fracture does not extend too far to the root side of the tooth, the broken piece is removed and the broken tissue is treated. If the fracture is observed up to the pulp, a combined treatment is performed with root canal treatment. If the fracture is partial, it is treated with a crown crown. If the fracture has progressed to the root, tooth extraction may occur. In such cases, a dentist should be consulted immediately.
