Can I heal a cracked tooth?

Hi Dr Ellie,

Is it possible to remineralize a crack in a tooth using your protocol?

Thanks!

V


Dear V:

It is possible to heal a cracked tooth but it does depend on the kind of crack etc.so you really need a clinical assessment by a dentist.

My system stimulates "natural remineralization/ healing" of teeth. This is the depositing of minerals into the tooth surface. I tell people this kind of repair is like healing a wound in your skin.

Xylitol and the dilute fluoride rinse ACT work in harmony ( I suggest you use my system) and you should get layers of minerals deposited into your tooth. Xylitol puts minerals in the deeper layers of the tooth/crack and ACT works to put minerals into the surface "skin" of the tooth.

Many people with cracked and sensitive teeth have found their sensitivity goes away in about a week on this system.

I cannot guarantee your cracked tooth will heal. If you have a serious and physical split down the tooth, you would feel pain.

In most cases I would say get started on the system and see how your tooth "feels." If it feels better then I would continue to be optimistic.

Hope this helps. It is difficult to advise because a truly cracked tooth (as occurs in an accident) cannot rebuild itself back but a small crack/ craze in the surface may heal in a matter of six to eight weeks.

I would be interested to hear more about your tooth in the future and what you did, and what happens.

Good luck and take care,
