  • “I have been a patient of Dr. Robertson for over 20 years. I'm a sensitive patient when it comes to going to a dentist and Dr. Robertson always remains mindful of that and makes each experience as relaxing as possible. He has the best possible temperament one could ask for in a dentist. He consistently maintains the most professional and extremely friendly staff which combined with his skills makes his practice by far the best choice.”

    - Bill W, Newport Coast
  • “I just finished a session with Dr. Robertson which involved removing a bridge and filling the tooth that held the bridge, then replacing the bridge. Dr. Robertson was very considerate and caring doing the work. He was most careful while doing the procedure and there was no pain involved. He is especially good in situations such as this one was.”

    - Doris R Y.

Whether it's a simple cleaning and check-up, the need for fillings, cosmetic dentistry or other procedures, they do it all, and always with a smile! Dr. R even adjusted my retainer, the last time I was in. I know you'll enjoy the experience they give their patients. Keep up the great work, and you know we'll be back!”

Did You Know That Cracked Teeth Don't Always Hurt?

model of teeth | Dentist in Irvine CA

A cracked tooth certainly sounds like a painful experience, and sometimes it is. Other times, however, a cracked tooth may remain asymptomatic (pain-free) for years, or even decades.

One of the risks of leaving cracked teeth undiagnosed is that even a microscopic crack may open the door for bacteria to enter your tooth and decay it from the inside out. This situation will often require a root canal or extraction, depending on the extent of the damage.

When a Cracked Tooth Hurts

Whether a tooth hurts or not depends on how close the damage is to the nerve. A cracked tooth may lose a cusp, due to clenching and grinding or because of biting into something hard. Because the nerve is not involved, you may feel the crack with your tongue (and it is usually annoying and sharp), but not feel actual tooth pain.

Another instance when cracked teeth commonly hurt is when biting into something that places pressure on the damaged area. We have a tool in our dental office to detect cracks that are not visible to the eye, called the bite test.

People who have a clenching and grinding habit often awaken with tooth pain because of prolonged pressure during the night. Teeth grinding is how many cracks develop in the first place.

How to Detect Cracked Teeth

The best way to detect a cracked tooth before it causes pain, decay, or infection is to make sure that you come into our office for regular dental exams and x-rays. Dr. Robertson will alert you to any teeth he feels are in jeopardy or require treatment.

If you do need a dental crown, we create custom, high-quality restorations to prolong the life of your tooth. In many cases, we can make crowns that blend in with your smile.

If you want a reliable and experienced dentist in the Irvine, CA area, we welcome new patients and look forward to helping you get the dental care you need to stay healthy.
