Cracked tooth is defined by the American Association of Endodontists Glossary of Terms as a thin surface disruption of enamel and dentin, and possibly cementum, of unknown depth or extension. Patients with a cracked tooth most often experience pain on biting and with changes in temperature. If a crack propagation compromises the pulp and causes pulpal andor periapical pathosis, a NSRCT is required to remove disease and alleviate the patients symptoms. Reports of cracked teeth have been published since the 1950s, but there are still no long-term, prospective outcomes studies of endodontically treated cracked teeth
