Cracked : Cracked tooth syndrome (cts) involves a crack in the tooth portion that is above the gum line. 90 % of cts is fixed with a simple crown. It keeps the cracked part of the tooth above the gum line from moving & all the symptoms from being stimulating. The other 10% need root canal as well because the crack has reached the root canal system. If the crack is one of the above (described as favorable) this is a complete cure. If the tooth is cracked further below the gum, involving a fracture (or crack) of the root, the tooth will need to be extracted. Your dentist will know because there will be a space in the attachment of the tooth to the bone, just in the location of the crack. Xray evidences this type of crack, whereas cts is not discernable on xray exam. ...Read more

Junk: You need to be more discerning. The scare over formylcresol is a misapplication of Petri dish junk science. The disinformation artistry and links to big money quackery are obvious. Research piranhas at the NIH get root canals. Go get your tooth fixed and forgive my bluntness. ...Read more
